OSLO, Norway — 7 September 2015
Bridge Technologies (booth 1.F68) and Ericsson will demonstrate a new integrated monitoring solution for occasional-use contribution links at the Ericsson booth (1.D61) at IBC 2015.
Using Ericsson’s nCompass Connect and Bridgetech’s monitoring system, broadcasters will be able to simply and quickly set up point-to-point or point-to-multipoint links complete with real-time quality monitoring and analysis displays. The ability to quickly configure confidence monitoring and analysis is vital, since broadcasters typically create many such links on a daily basis.
Optimised for the particular conditions of occasional contribution links, the development allows users to see operational status of the links on the Bridge Technologies RDW (Remote Data Wall) display amongst the mix of other data displayed from more permanent links.
“We are excited to be working closely with Ericsson to showcase a comprehensive but easy-to-setup monitoring tool that will improve confidence and security when working with occasional network links,” said Simen Frostad, Chairman of Bridge Technologies.
