GMIT introduces virtuWall

GMIT_Prismon_all_small_textimageRohde & Schwarz subsidiary GMIT GmbH is to introduce a new commercial web service to supplement the Rohde & Schwarz content monitoring and multiviewing solution R&S Prismon at IBC.

R&S Prismon was launched early this year as a convergent solution for content monitoring in both broadcast and streaming media/OTT environments.

The service now provides users with real-time access to monitoring and status parameters from R&S Prismon monitoring probes on mobile internet-enabled devices using a secure web service anywhere, anytime.

Rohde & Schwarz’s A/V monitoring platform R&S Prismon is designed for advanced, convergent content monitoring in broadcast and OTT delivery networks. It serves as a multiviewer and monitoring probe and is designed to help operators ensure service quality and availability, supporting formats from SMPTE 2110 to MPEG-DASH.

GMIT has now launched the virtuWall portfolio with a new web service that provides a secure connection to multiple Prismon devices via a single entry point, making complex virtual private networks (VPNs) obsolete, according to the company. The virtuWall web service can either be installed on-premises or operated as cloud service by GMIT.

The virtuWall iOS App provides users with information on the state and health of all monitored services. If an error is detected, virtuWall notifies its users in real time and provides in-depth analysis capabilities. Operators can detect system failures and assess their severity from their mobile device.

“VirtuWall can revolutionize traditional broadcast monitoring workflows,” said Marcus Ruoff, product manager at GMIT. “Operators are no longer tied to their consoles, working in shifts in case of a very rare system failure. Instead, they can focus on more productive tasks anywhere within their broadcast facility and still receive error notifications whether they are on- or off-site.”

GMIT will exhibit at IBC on stands 7.E25 and 14.K18
