Agama Technologies has announced that Norway’s TV 2 has imlemented an Agama solution for service quality assurance in its headend and distribution environment.
Private broadcaster TV 2 can now keep tabs on what enters and leaves its head-nd and distribution sites really is the best it can be.
TV 2, owned by Danish publishing group Egmont, is Norway’s largest commercial TV broadcaster with an extensive offering of basic and premium SD and HD channels.
To validate all incoming content and have full control of its multicast playout, TV 2 has selected Agama to provide a solution for continuous and in-depth real-time monitoring of its complete channel lineup, detecting everything from transport stream problems to encoding and service configuration issues.
For channels with both a primary and a backup source, the solution automatically selects between the redundant sources for monitoring based on their availability, to always make sure that the monitored source is the one currently used.
“Constantly monitoring our quite complex head-end and distribution environment is essential for our service delivery, as its performance ultimately affects all viewers,” said Jan Piet Ballegeer, systems engineer at TV 2.
“We opted for Agama’s solution due to its feature rich and in-depth monitoring capabilities, flexibility and scalability, as well as its future proof approach to managing multiple distribution technologies and services in a single and unified user interface.”
