In addition to traditional broadcast services, cable operators are distributing videos over various devices as well. This increases the complexity of the network, which compels operators to adopt IP-based infrastructure. Additionally, increasing multi-screen viewing drives demand for video quality monitoring, especially from the telecommunications segment.
"As broadcasters all over the world upgrade to digital and high-definition (HD) workflows, the deployment of IP networking across the value chain is a certainty," said
The process of ensuring overall efficient management of IP video, based on metrics such as quality of experience (QoE) and quality of service (QoS), utilizes probes, analyzers and data-mining solutions. Probes accounted for the biggest revenue share of the global IP video network management market at 53 percent in 2012; growing at the expense of analyzers. Probes provide real-time and offline quality loss measurement, while analyzers monitor compliance with regulatory guidelines, such as closed caption subtitling. Data-mining solutions are the key to QoS and QoE metrics, as this technology monitors the overall health of the network.
