With the End-to-End Client Device Monitoring Solution, OTT Service Providers Can Analyze Video Performance to Improve QoE
CUPERTINO, Calif. — Oct. 24, 2017 — Interra Systems, a leading global provider of software products and solutions to the digital media industry, today announced ORION™-OTT Edge Performance Monitor (EPM), powered by NPAW YOUBORA. Integration between Interra Systems’ ORION-OTT monitoring probe and NPAW YOUBORA video analytics and business intelligence suite provides operators in the broadcast, cable, telco, satellite, IPTV, over-the-top (OTT), and post-production markets with a comprehensive set of tools to deliver live and VOD content with the utmost confidence. Using the solution, service providers can analyze the video performance metrics of real user sessions, gain insight into recurrent issues and their causes, and easily isolate errors to improve quality of experience (QoE) and user engagement.
“Measuring QoE is critical to the success of OTT services,” said Jonathan Shields, VP of sales at NPAW. “Partnering with Interra Systems, an expert in the field of OTT monitoring, we are able to provide the industry with a complete end-to-end client device monitoring workflow for over-the-top services. The end result is flawless video delivery on every screen.”
ORION-OTT EPM collects and extracts vital video performance metrics such as startup time, buffering ratio, number of stalls, and play failures from client devices. The collected metrics are analyzed to isolate performance issues across various dimensions such as CDNs, ISPs, countries, cities, and video titles, and then drilled down to the root cause. Featuring a rich user interface with real-time views of all quality metrics segregated across various dimensions, ORION-OTT EPM speeds up the identification of anomalies.
To correlate QoE findings at different points in a monitoring workflow (i.e., origin server, CDN) and derive meaningful information out of it, service providers require an advanced centralized monitoring platform. ORION-OTT EPM offers seamless integration with Interra Systems’ ORION Central Manager to build a complete picture with meaningful insights.
“As the most advanced and holistic suite of integrated video analytics and business intelligence for broadcasters and other content providers, YOUBORA is the perfect match for our ORION-OTT solution,” said Anupama Anantharaman, director, product marketing and business development at Interra Systems. “Leveraging YOUBORA, ORION-OTT EPM enables OTT service providers to make data-driven, business, operational, and technical decisions that drive performance and maximize revenue across the entire video service.”
