Viewer Experience Monitoring with Pixelmetrix Electronic Couch Potato

TelcoTV Orlando, Florida, November 10, 2009 – Pixelmetrix, the global expert in Preventive Monitoring for digital television and IPTV networks, is presenting three of its star IPTV monitoring tools at TelcoTV this week, in Orlando, Florida, Booth 946.

Products to be featured include the DVStation-IP3, Electronic Couch Potato™ and IPGen.

A one-stop monitoring engine for IP and Transport Stream Analysis, the DVStation-IP3 allows for detailed service visualization and IP Headend Output verification for IPTV networks. It provides, on all services, MPEG-2 and H.264 main profile thumbnails, Media Delivery Index (MDI) for packet loss and jitter measurements as well as video presence, freeze or blackout displays.

The Electronic Couch Potato™ stands out with its ability to emulate end-user changing channels on a Set Top Box via a built-in infrared (IR) control transmitter. Service plan verification, channel switching and recording measurements on service quality for each channel to be reported to a central management console, equips the service provider with an in-depth knowledge of the end-user’s experience. Most importantly, it helps to check whether the channels that the ECP scans are actually available in the first place.

“The Electronic Couch Potato™ is designed to monitor the true customer viewing experience by providing measurements from the end point of the content delivery chain. The ECP™ connects after the Set Top Box (STB) and provides feedback on various service quality parameters to a central site,” said Danny Wilson, Pixelmetrix President and CEO.

The IPGen is designed to simulate a fully operational IP video delivery headend. It is an effective lab test tool used to understand the behavior of network elements and devices in real world video delivery scenarios. A single IPGen eliminates the need for multiple equipment to simulate the operational scenarios of a typical IP video headend. The IPGen can generate error-free as well as user-defined impaired video streams. These capabilities are crucial for stress test network elements. Channel change simulation in a multicast enabled network and video server storage are some of the important functionalities of this cost-effective solution.

On Day 2, Wednesday, November 11, Amit Sood, Pixelmetrix IPTV Product Manager, is joining a panel of speakers to discuss Quality of Experience: Beyond the Hype. The panel session is scheduled to commence at 2.10pm in Room N220 DE.

TelcoTV will be held from November 10 to 12 at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Florida.
