New Products for IPTV World Forum 2011

VB330 -- The Industry's Most Powerful Media Monitoring Probe Bridge Technologies will launch the industry's most powerful monitoring and analysis probe to date, with the introduction at IPTV World Forum of the VideoBRIDGE VB330. The first product to be based on Bridge Technologies entirely new 10GB architecture, the VB330 will offer the highest performance to form-factor ratio available in the monitoring and analysis sector. With three blades fitting in a single 1RU chassis and each VB330 probe having two 10GB interfaces, the system can deliver a massive 60GB monitoring capability. Designed for extremely high-density applications at points of maximum data throughput in today's 10GB core networks, the VB330's enormous capacity offers telcos, network operators, and digital media organizations a monitoring solution with the potential for scaling to match almost any level of throughput.

Other Products on Show at IPTV World Forum 2011

VB12-RF -- Ruggedized, Portable Broadcast-IP Probe for Cable and Terrestrial Diagnostics The new VB12-RF is the most portable comprehensive monitoring/measurement appliance available. Designed for real-world use by engineers on the road, the VB12-RF packs every required broadcast and IP interface into a ruggedized chassis with a form factor smaller than a laptop computer. It is smaller, lighter, and tougher than any alternative, with the widest range of built-in interfaces for RF, ASI, and IP, full TR 101 290 alarming and analysis, and support for all media transportation codecs. The VB12-RF is far more practical, complete, and robust than traditional larger, heavier, and fragile PC-based alternatives.

VB262 -- DUAL QAM/VSB Input Option With Built-in Spectrum Analytics The VB262 DUAL QAM/VSB input option card is the solution for complete monitoring in DVB-C or hybrid DVB-C/IP networks, now with added built-in spectrum analytics capability for advanced RF analysis. Up to four independent RF inputs can be analyzed in one 1RU chassis. A very cost-effective multipurpose analysis tool, the VB262 provides a powerful real-time QAM/VSB monitoring and alarm solution ideal for RF, cable, terrestrial, and PBS operators in the U.S. The VB262 in combination with the VB220 or VB120 controllers is perfect for hybrid networks where IP is used as a carrier from head-end to the regional edge-multiplexer/modulator/transmitter. The built-in round-robin functionality allows sequential analysis of multiple QAM or VSB multiplexes, making it possible to monitor the total broadcast contents of a cable transmission system using a single VB262. One or two VB262 modules can be specified in a single probe, allowing high-density monitoring of up to 260 MPTS/SPTS multicasts in addition to the RF inputs.

microVB(TM) With Analytics The microVB(TM) is a breakthrough in miniaturized remote monitoring and analysis for digital media applications. Now with advanced autoconfiguration for plug-and-play setup and an enhanced user interface, microVB adds the final link in the VideoBRIDGE monitoring system chain to provide in-depth packet analysis for any media service including OTT technologies from every major vendor, giving operators completely integrated end-to-end monitoring from satellite to set-top box (STB). Robust and small enough to be delivered to the customer by mail, and with simple, plug-and-play installation, microVB is the first cost-effective and technically viable solution for gathering continuous real-time data about performance at the viewers' STB. Upon installation between the STB and television, microVB automatically locates a server on the operator's VideoBRIDGE network and begins sending data, enabling deep packet inspection without requiring a technician to visit the customer's home to install the device or diagnose problems.

VideoBRIDGE 4.7 Software The new 4.7 software release adds new and exciting enhancements and upgrades for the complete VideoBRIDGE range of products. At the show, highlights and previews of upcoming versions of the system will be demonstrated including powerful SQL database features, advanced graphic displays, and more.

EC Chassis -- Increased Resilience for VideoBRIDGE Probes Bridge Technologies introduces a new EC (Enhanced Chassis) for VideoBRIDGE probes, further increasing ruggedness and resilience for remote operation in extreme conditions. The new chassis features redundant power supplies, front-to-back airflow, six CPU-controlled high-speed fans, and high-grade cast alloy metalwork. The new chassis has been designed for NEBS-compliance, and has also been engineered to accept future generations of high-power cards.
