The new over-the-top (OTT) monitoring solution OTT StreamWatch is described by the company as a game changer for OTT quality assurance. In addition to 24/7 quality assurance, it provides compliance logging, OTT stream monitoring, and aircheck recording of native HLS and other OTT ABR streams. It can be deployed as a stand-alone solution or as part of the Actus Intelligent Monitoring Platform - providing customers with a central interface.

OTT StreamWatch is also said to be the first product that makes it economically feasible to monitor FAST, IPTV and OTT streaming channels throughout an entire workflow. It is said to be a cost-effective option for OTT content owners, streaming companies, and service providers of all sizes.

Another new product on display will be Remote Video Monitoring (RVM) within the Actus Intelligent Monitoring Platform. Designed as a quality assurance solution for multichannel video programming distributors (MVPDs), the Actus RVM allows MVPDs to gain real-time insights into their viewers’ quality of service (QoS) and verify local ad insertion and timing. It enables MVPDs to remotely connect to STBs at head ends and hub sites to examine one channel at a time or the entire channel lineup via multiviewer monitoring and proactive QoS alerts.

When Actus RVM is deployed at multiple probe points and/or in multiple locations, it shows how widespread an issue is and pinpoints the exact location it entered the video distribution workflow. This allows operators to rapidly identify, diagnose, and resolve QoS problems without costly truck rolls.

Also included within the new Version 9.0 of the Actus compliance logging and Intelligent Monitoring Platform are more AI-enabled options, such as speech-to-text and translation to any language. This is seen as being particularly beneficial for news monitoring purposes, allowing searches for specific keywords and quick and accurate audio and video analysis.

“We’re committed to providing top-level support to our customers and partners in Asia. Our significant user base in the region allows us to tailor our solutions to the specific requirements and workflows of this market,” said Sima Levy, CEO of Actus Digital.

“We’re proud of the relationships we’ve established and are the only compliance logging vendor exhibiting at BCA. Our office in Asia provides pre-and post-sales support, allowing us to perform better and faster service to our Asian customers. We work closely with our customers and enhance our solution with their specific needs and ideas in mind.”
