Canal Câble uses Bridge Technologies to manage distributed remote network at Roland Garros
Bridge Technologies has helped Canal Câble manage its distributed remote network at Roland Garros, through the use of a series of network probes used to monitor signal quality.
Canal Câble deployed a number of Bridge Technologies probes throughout its distribution network. The probes reported readings to the IP-based head end for comparison with the original signal, and thresholds and alarms automatically alerted the network management team to any discrepancies between what was being transmitted and what was being received, enabling instant corrective action to be taken.
Bridge Technologies’ Remote Data Wall was also deployed to provide feedback on the status and performance of the content distribution network.
Simen Frostad, chairman, Bridge Technologies said: “For sports production companies to fully embrace remote production, there has to be a very high degree of trust that delivery mechanisms are robust, and that transmission output will not be compromised in any way. It’s that trust that we can help provide, ensuring that what consumers sees is what the production team wants them to see.”
Bridge Technologies’ probes provide monitoring and analysis of high bitrate uncompressed media flows over IP with both ST2110 and ST2022-6 transports, providing network operators, digital media organisations, production studios, master control centres and outside broadcast vehicles and venues with an analytics solution for numerous streams and multiple technologies in real time and in parallel.
