Norway’s Altibox goes OTT with video quality assurance

Norwegian triple-play service provider Altibox has expanded its existing end-to-end IPTV quality monitoring solution from Sweden’s Agama Technologies to cover its new TV Everywhere service ‘TV Chilli’.

Altibox’s TV Chilli service was launched last December, offering linear TV and video-on-demand services across multiple screens to its customers, including PCs, Macs and iOS devices, using adaptive bitrate (ABR) streaming in HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) and Smooth Streaming formats.

Building out its existing Agama DTV Monitoring Solution, Altibox gathers monitoring information from all Agama Analyzers and Agama Embedded Monitoring probes for both IPTV and over-the-top (OTT) video delivery into one single system.

Leveraging Agama’s powerful analysis engine to perform powerful QoE and QoS monitoring of ABR streaming services, the solution provides top-level alarms, dashboard widgets and service status over­views, as well as drill-down features with detailed metrics and extensive event logs down to each individual session.

Altibox, a subsidiary of Lyse Tele, offers more than 150 channels, a DVR and an on-demand service with a library of over 900 movies from Warner Bros., Disney and Nordisk Film. Additional VOD content is supplied by TV2 and TVNorge.

Agama Technologies recently become an official Microsoft Mediaroom ecosystem partner and revealed plans to launch a Mediaroom edition of its complete end-to-end digital TV monitoring solution at the IBC 2012 trade show which kicks off in Amsterdam early next month.
