Sencore to Offer End-to-End Monitoring Through Integration With Harmonic IRIS® QoS Solution

LAS VEGAS — April 16, 2012 — Sencore, a leading provider of signal quality and video delivery solutions, has integrated its Sencore VideoBRIDGE monitoring solution with Harmonic’s IRIS® video quality monitoring and analytics system, to deliver an end-to-end video monitoring and analysis solution.

“We’re very excited about this opportunity to work with Harmonic, one of the industry’s best-known technology innovators for video quality and efficient video distribution,” said Jeff Briden, vice president of product management at Sencore. “The integration of our two products will enable Sencore and Harmonic to offer a complete system-monitoring solution for both video and network quality, which will ease our customers’ support burdens and help them increase viewer satisfaction.”

The Sencore VideoBRIDGE family enables monitoring of transport packets on IP, ASI, and RF interfaces for continuous quality assurance of streaming media in a variety of compression schemes, including MPEG-2 and MPEG-4. Harmonic’s IRIS video quality-of-service (QoS) software suite provides video quality, global channel availability, and source profiling measurements for hundreds of programs, both in real time and historically for up to one year. Through the integration with the VideoBRIDGE monitoring system, users of IRIS-enabled Harmonic encoders will be able to extract picture quality metrics from the encoder and access key network metrics for IP and RF distribution systems.

“Through integration with IRIS, VideoBRIDGE gains access to highly detailed video quality metrics from Harmonic’s encoders, effectively turning them into probes that add more insight and value to Sencore’s end-to-end monitoring solution,” said Yoav Derazon, director of software products and solutions at Harmonic Inc. “IRIS is a comprehensive, analytics tool that is unique in the industry. By combining it with Sencore’s rich multiprobe and multilayered monitoring solution, customers benefit from both comprehensive monitoring and advanced analytics in one integrated solution.”
The integrated monitoring and analysis system will be demonstrated at Sencore’s booth SU3612 at the 2012 NAB Show in Las Vegas, April 16-19.
