Israeli cable operator Hot has elected to monitor its existing linear and new over-the-top (OTT) services using Interra Systems’ Orion software technology.

Hot logo 18 Sept 2018Hot aims to quickly and easily monitor URLs published on origin servers from different locations using Orion-OTT. While the linear option, simply called Orion, can monitor the cable operator’s live TV channels, including 4K streams, to flag errors and other anomalies before the content is fed to the downstream distribution stages.

“Delivering content both for linear broadcasting and OTT is a new paradigm that is more akin to file-based workflows and comes with its own set of unique challenges,” said Kanishka Tongya, director of sales, APAC & MEA, Interra Systems.

“Large providers like Hot select Interra Systems’ Orion-OTT because it is feature rich, easy to use, and can be customised to their exact monitoring needs.”

Interra’s VP of engineering Sanjay Mittal added: “OTT delivery is a continuum of file-based workflows, an area where Interra Systems has years of expertise with Baton, the industry-leading auto-QC solution. We have built Orion-OTT on the same core capabilities, extended for monitoring in-depth QoS and QoE in the OTT environment.

“We are delighted that Hot has chosen Orion and Orion-OTT to deliver superior experiences to its viewers, who expect the same if not better QoE as traditional broadcasts.”
