Building on the incredible IP monitoring capabilities of Sencore’s VideoBRIDGE embedded probes, the VB220-V is a software probe that has all the capabilities and options for monitoring hundreds of IP stream as the embedded hardware version and adds additional QoE monitoring and archiving options on top of that. The VB220-V is available as a software image that users can install on their own qualified server or it is available pre-installed from Sencore on a high-performance server appliance.
The VB220-V is aimed at monitoring the full cross section of services commonly found in media-related network operations. It is a very flexible tool for monitoring network performance involving signal formats and areas as diverse as video IP multicast, video OTT/ABR streaming, voice trunks, video-on demand unicast, Ethernet packet microbursts, PCAP recording and general traffic protocol inspection.
With the add-on content monitoring and ETR290 options, the VB220-V becomes an all-around QoS/QoE workhorse supporting simultaneous monitoring many streams/services for video/audio quality, MOS scoring, audio loudness, closed captions and continuous ETR 101-290 MPEG monitoring. In addition, with the content monitoring option, the video thumbnails, audio loudness results and captions can be archived in a unique timeline view for later lookup and retrieval.
