Densitron announces new long-term partnership with Bridge Technologies
Densitron has announced a new long-term partnership with measurement and monitoring specialist Bridge Technologies.
Together, the two companies are to offer broadcast customers solutions for the display and analysis of standard-based IP video streams that combine the functionality of Densitron’s Intelligent Display System (IDS) platform with Bridge Technologies’ software and hardware systems for broadcast measurement and monitoring.
Reuben Such, global business director at Densitron IDS, reflected on the new partnership: “We realised that the integration of our IDS platform with Bridge’s acclaimed VB440 IP probe would provide a great combined solution for the monitoring and performance analysis of ST2110 and ST2022-6 video and audio streams. For instance, this allows users to access sub-2 frame previews of these streams as well as vector scope images and other rendered waveforms.
Simen K. Frostad, chairman at Bridge Technologies, welcomed the collaboration and commented: “The VB440 has already proven itself to be an indispensable tool in obtaining real-time IP packet behavioural analytics when transporting uncompressed ST2110 and ST2022-6 video and audio. The IP probe’s integration with Densitron’s IDS platform means customers can benefit from a powerful and responsive combined solution for monitoring and analysis, as well as the chance to take advantage of IDS’ extensive additional functionality.”
Whilst a proof-of-concept (POC) based around this integration is now approaching completion and will constitute the initial focus of the Densitron/Bridge Technologies partnership, other potential areas of collaboration are under consideration.
Existing users of the Densitron IDS platform will be able to benefit from the integration with the VB440 via a software upgrade to be made available in the near future.
