Actus Digital will showcase its solutions at NAB Show 2023
Actus Digital has announced that the company will be part of the NAB Show 2023 exhibition. Visitors can experience their solutions at booth W-1767.
The company will be showcasing its OTT solution StreamWatch available via SaaS and on-premises solutions. It provides 24×7 OTT stream monitoring and recording of native HLS streams. The tool provides monitoring and maintaining quality of linear FAST/IPTV channels from encoding through delivery. It handles a range of resolutions and speeds returning from various CDNs across unmanaged networks.
Live OTT video streams can be displayed on multiviewers at various probe-points in their workflow and combined with traditional TV station/broadcast content. In addition to the issues being identified on the multiviewer, the Actus platform sends real-time alerts on critical audio-video Quality-of-Experience issues like missing/frozen content, and compliance violations such as Loudness and missing closed captions/subtitles.
With the addition of OTT StreamWatch to a traditional Actus Intelligent Monitoring Platform, detailed OTT Quality-of-Service (QoS) information is added to transport stream analysis. The same OTA Quality Assurance (QA) and compliance from the Actus monitoring platform is extended to OTT QA. Among other OTT QA analysis, OTT StreamWatch evaluates bandwidth usage, streaming media download times, and buffering issues for each rendition included within an HLS stream. It also includes SCTE insertion information.
Version 9.0 of the Actus Digital Intelligent Monitoring Platform adds some enhancements. Among these are support for additional standards including ATSC 3.0, SMPTE 2110/2022-6/7, and most streaming standards.
Specific improvements were also achieved in the Actus Remote Video Monitoring (RVM) tools for MVPD engineering and operations, and in Actus AdWatch that makes it easier for TV station sales teams to produce AI-generated Zero-Run and Delta-Report lead lists.
“While many customers deploy Actus systems solely for locally ingested or OTT streaming content, those that are responsible for delivering content for both OTA and OTT can deploy a hybrid approach on Actus Digital’s traditional Intelligent Monitoring Platform using OTT StreamWatch for multiviewer monitoring, compliance logging, QA alerting, and many other use cases and advanced workflows,” said Ken Rubin, Actus Digital Senior Vice President. “For companies that deliver only FAST/IPTV channels, as well as those starting to include OTT, Actus is proud to offer SaaS, on-premises, and hybrid solutions for professional media monitoring and quality assurance.”
