Harmonic Introduces Video Quality Monitoring Solution

Harmonic introduced its video quality (VQ) monitoring and optimization software, a new solution suite designed for broadcasters and service providers.

The IRIS software gives operators the tools to maximize video quality in real-time for the entire program lineup, offering end users a better viewing experience. The information provided by IRIS allows service providers to optimize bandwidth utilization by more effectively balancing the distribution of channels across their multiplexes.

IRIS delivers a variety of real-time QoS measurements or scheduled reports for hundreds of programs. For instance, operators can check status of video quality, global channel availability, statmux pool optimization scores, and source quality and complexity. IRIS can be utilized in conjunction with Harmonic's DiviCom Electra encoders, ProStream 1000 stream processing platform and NMX Digital Service Manager to provide a centrally managed solution for QoS monitoring.
