IBC2012 EXHIBITOR PREVIEW
Mariner -- Hall 14, Stands 521 and 524
Given the recent explosion in IPTV service deployments and multiscreen video services, IPTV monitoring is expected to be an important topic for service providers attending IBC2012. As a leading provider of IPTV monitoring solutions for multiscreen networks, Mariner will demonstrate their range of video service monitoring solutions designed to increase efficiencies for service providers, while improving subscribers' overall quality of experience on every device.
Key Products and Demonstrations
Mariner xVu(TM) Video Service Monitoring
At IBC2012, Mariner will announce significant enhancements to its end-to-end service assurance solution Mariner xVu(TM), including exclusive pre-integration with the industry's leading probe manufacturers and innovative feature enhancements that improve installation quality and efficiency as well as increase customer satisfaction.
Mariner xVu reduces operational costs for multiscreen TV networks by providing the network operations team, help desk, field technicians, and customers with powerful tools for managing TV quality. Unlike traditional service assurance tools that monitor specific elements of the network, Mariner xVu is based on a unique service-oriented monitoring (SOM) approach that accurately monitors the entire TV delivery chain, from the network's headend to the customer's set-top Box (STB). Through user-friendly software-based interfaces, service providers can view subscribers' service performance to identify and isolate service issues quickly.
A proven IPTV service monitoring solution that is easy to integrate into any middleware ecosystem, Mariner xVu is the 2012 winner of the IP&TV World Forum (TV Connect) World Series award for Best Quality Improvement Solution and has achieved preeminence as the Microsoft(R) Mediaroom(R) most widely deployed service assurance and service monitoring solution.
