Integrated Services Monitoring by Bridge Technologies addresses the multiple layers of the broadcast and media cycle

OSLO, 23-Mar-2020 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Bridge Technologies today announced ISM – Integrated Services Monitoring, an all-embracing suite of tools, designed to deliver invaluable insights into the performance of content production, contribution and distribution networks not only for engineers charged with day-to-day operations but for management to assess the overall performance of the operation.

Integrated Services Monitoring is an approach to quality that addresses the multiple layers of the broadcast and media cycle – from production through signal acquisition, contribution streams, OTT/streaming media, traditional broadcast distribution with DTT or Satellite to picture archiving.

“ISM provides exactly the set of data gathering tools broadcasters need throughout the chain – from production to delivery, uncompressed to compressed.” said Simen K. Frostad, Chairman, Bridge Technologies. “No other company in the network monitoring and analysis space can offer such a complete, comprehensive set of automated capabilities that deliver such a high level of understanding throughout any content distribution chain.”

Bridge Technologies’ extensive product offering ranges from embedded systems and software-based probes to software control systems that support all currently commercial available standards and media formats, all designed to deliver in-depth, intuitive understanding of the end-to-end broadcast process.

Integrated Services Monitoring enables a unique, pre-integrated approach to the most complex tasks facing the modern broadcaster, putting automated eyeballs on all acquisition, delivery and production media streams – all from a single vendor, avoiding the need for complex bespoke engineering.

A turnkey, easy-to-install, complete media monitoring system that spans the whole media chain, Integrated Services Monitoring supports SD, HD, UHD and even 8K; it encompasses contribution streams using various encapsulation techniques including TS-encapsulated JPEG2K and SRT in addition to traditional IPTV; it embraces the modern headend with signal acquisition from terrestrial and satellite sources; and it includes pre-demodulation signal analytics, pre- and post-encoding analytics for IPTV, cable delivery and Remote PHY as well as pre- and post-transcoding to origin for OTT distribution, monitored using QoE parameters such as MOS scores. All data is recorded for instant retrieval in an easy to use visual timeline or formatted as PDF reports that are automatically generated and emailed to whoever needs them.

“Integrated Services Monitoring represents the accumulation of our 15+ years of experience in developing, manufacturing and deploying the most advanced solutions to ensure the maximum uptime of content production, contribution and distribution networks around the world,” Frostad continued. “From the network engineer on a remote site to personnel at the master control centre (MCR) who need visibility into everything that’s going on to management who require SLAs and other insightful indicators of overall network performance, Integrated Services Monitoring is there to deliver what they need, when they need it.”

Integrated Services Monitoring is a further instantiation of Bridge Technologies’ innovative approach to leveraging the inherent value of content data passing through the network: once the data has been ‘acquired’ by a probe, it can be put to multiple uses.

Take, for example, the VBC top level system as part of the ISM structure,” added Frostad. “It’s a management system that, by adding a single IP address to a remote probe, immediately starts the collection of massive amounts of data right into the database. That’s very powerful – suddenly all the advanced reporting and analysis comes automatically.”

This has also seen Bridge Technologies introduce its award-winning Widglets™ API for the VB440 probe. Using Widglets, video monitoring can be embedded within any HTML code – making it available to anyone connected via a web browser, wherever they are. The API is already allowing companies to achieve highly efficient functionality in remote production that was previously unimaginable.

Having two guests’ lists for your wedding, one for guests who can attend and one for virtual guests will help you save half the money you would spend if all the guests physically attended your wedding

By having two wedding guest lists, one for those can physically attend your wedding and one for those who can attend virtually; you can cut the cost of your wedding in half!!

LiveWeddingBroadcast.TV, a live wedding broadcast service offering of WebWax.Net, allows Brides and Grooms to save money on their wedding in these hard economic times. It’s no doubt that everyone is watching how they spend their money not sure of what the future holds. According to AOL and the National Association of Catering Executives, “people are increasingly watching their pennies. They are booking their affairs in off-peak times and reducing the number of guests they invite to their wedding.” Brides and Grooms, who already set their wedding dates before the hard times hit, are finding themselves more challenged.

One major cost associated with weddings is the cost of the reception. Reception costs are directly proportional to the number of invited guests that can attend the wedding. The Wedding Report statistics show that for weddings having less than 50 guests, the average reception cost is $10,600. Weddings with 50-100 guests, reception costs average $17,500; 100-200 guests, $27,000; over 200 guests, $57,000. One choice is that Brides and Grooms can choose to invite fewer guests to the wedding event in an effort to save significant money for their wedding. However, shouldn’t Brides and Grooms invite anyone they want since it is their wedding day?

By having two guest lists and choosing to invite guests online through the use of LiveWeddingBroadcast.TV, Brides and Grooms can invite all of their friends and family to share in their special day. For as little as $150, you can invite up to 25 guests online; or for $250, you can invite up to 50 guests; or create a custom package to meet your needs.

Another new issue facing Brides and Grooms are that more of their invited guests are making the decision to not attend their wedding due to budget constraints. Although they want to attend the wedding, many people can’t afford unexpected hotel expenses, extra gas expenses, and airfare to wedding locations. LiveWeddingBroadcast.TV is the best solution for Brides and Grooms faced with these challenges, easing the financial burden for their guests. The money that the guests save from not having to travel to the wedding can be used to purchase the newly married couple, a wedding gift through the online registry in the LiveWeddingBroadcast.TV service.

LiveWeddingBroadcast.TV is the perfect solution for those couples who can’t afford to invite all the guests that they want to invite or have guests who can’t afford to physically attend the wedding. For the online guests, it is just like being there since it is broadcast live in real-time. LiveWeddingBroadcast.TV is also a great solution for those couples who have friends or relatives serving overseas.

Now Brides and Grooms can save money, have the wedding of your dreams, and have everyone there to share their most special day with them!!!!

Take11 provides a web service for online cataloging of videos and dvds

Every technology has limitations and drawbacks. In the case of home entertainment systems, a drawback is the need to organize and manage a collection of videos and dvds. Even when many videos are borrowed, rather than owned, we’d like to be able to track what we’ve seen, make a wish list, assign our own ratings, and create notes about particular movies. Ever stand in a video store with dvd in hand and wonder whether you already own that particular title?

The solution is a system for cataloging—but the system must be easy to use; that is, it must take advantage of what we already know. Software developers Mitch and Jim Haileare creating such a system—a web site called Take11.com where users can catalog their video collections.

Take11 is a web service: there is no software to buy, download, or update. Anyone who can use a web browser can use Take11. If you have a web-enabled mobile phone, you can access Take11 remotely, such as from your local dvd store. To add to your collection, you input just three or four key terms, and Take11 will fill in many details: actors, director, studio, running time—even a cover image. You can then add your own tags, comments, and ratings. As the number of Take11 users grows, so will its database, and this will allow users to explore other collections and search for little known gems from the film industry.

Take11 has just been released for public beta-testing: the developers need users who will explore the site, test features, and give constructive feedback. Anyone who regularly watches videos at home should give Take11 a look.

About the Developers
Mitch Haile earned a degree in computer science from The College of Wooster. He has been employed by Motorola and several Silicon Valley startups. Currently he is a freelance software engineer based in Boston.

Jim Haile earned an engineering degree from Vanderbilt and a PhD in engineering from the University of Florida. He has twenty-four years experience teaching science, engineering, and computer programming. Currently he resides in upstate South Carolina, where he is a freelance technical writer, editor, and web developer.

Their site is in public beta testing and developments can be followed on Twitter.
