High-Density QoS/Caption Probe

The VB380 combines the powerful 10G stream monitoring of Sencore VideoBRIDGE probes with the caption analysis and thumbnail extraction capabilities of the VideoBRIDGE VB7880 into a single high-density product. With monitoring support for up to 1000 service in a 1RU appliance, the VB380 is ideally suited for the large stream counts of today’s MSOs and other media delivery networks.
Measurement analytics are available via easy drill-down functionality and the patented MediaWindow™ technology simplifies monitoring and analysis of IP jitter and packet loss data. Perform deep ETR 101 290 analysis on all 1000 streams with all priority levels covered - Level 1, 2, 3 and including continuity count and PCR accuracy.
In addition to IP stream monitoring, the VB380 supports video thumbnail generation and closed caption extraction and alarming for up to 1000 services. The video thumbnails and captions can be passed to an external VideoBRIDGE archive server for long term investigation or the data can be extracted by 3rd-party systems using the comprehensive API. Built-in real time viewing of recent captions and caption control messages and also alarming for caption service presense and quailty aid in quickly solving caption issues.
