OptiQ Monitor is a multi-cloud monitoring service that allows users to manage provisioning, configuration and data collection of the monitoring products.
Telestream, a provider of workflow automation, media processing solutions for the production and distribution of video, has announced that its new OptiQ Monitor, a cloud-based monitoring-as-a-service, is now available.
OptiQ Monitor promises real-time deployment of live ABR quality monitoring at scale in over 70 global geographic regions and is designed to give broad visibility into the health and performance of live OTT channels delivered through CDN partners.
OptiQ Monitor is designed for content owners, broadcasters, event operators, and sports leagues that have already put in place the infrastructure required to support their live streaming channels but have no monitoring infrastructure, especially post-CDN.
When a user hits ‘go’, the OptiQ Monitor service performs monitoring of a customer’s live streaming channels. OptiQ Monitor enables users to integrate video monitoring without needing to modify anything in their existing delivery chain. It allows customers to be able to measure the real-time performance of their OTT channels at the CDN edge for every variant concurrently across disparate regions.
The service features a REST API for automation and integration, unlocking on-demand access to network performance and analysis data that can be combined with other performance metrics in a comprehensive view.
Commenting on the release, Kenneth Haren, OptiQ Product Manager at Telestream, said: “We introduced OptiQ Monitor service to the international broadcast industry during the 2019 IBC Show in Amsterdam and it generated strong interest from show attendees. We’re thrilled to say it’s now available. OptiQ Monitor is a cloud service that radically changes the approach for on-demand monitoring and analytics, delivering real-time performance and quality insights of OTT channel quality. For the first time, customers can spin up a multi-cloud hosted service in an automated and orchestrated fashion.”
