Of SatBroadcasting™ Interest: The GoldTS Reference Technology Among Products To Be Highlighted @ CommunicAsia2015

[SatNews] Bridge Technologies will be highlighting their advanced systems at CommunicAsia2015 that ensure high-quality, profitable digital media service delivery in broadcast, cable, satellite, OTT and telecoms applications.

Providing a sophisticated platform for converging digital media services, the company’s award-winning products and solutions include analysis, measurement, and monitoring systems, intelligent redundancy switching, and comprehensive analytics solutions for TV-Everywhere providers. Compatible with all major industrial standards, ruggedized for reliability in challenging environments, and built for low-energy operation, Bridge Technologies systems bring greater efficiency to digital media businesses by making it simpler to manage complexity.

GoldTS Reference is a new technology that makes monitoring for digital services much quicker to set up, and fault-tracking much faster, more accurate and secure. Developed exclusively by Bridge Technologies, GoldTS Reference includes all the checks specified in the ETR290 standard, but goes much further to include testing for critical conditions missed by ETR290. Conditions like failures of the conditional access system, errors in the program guide, and unintended language changes seriously affect subscribers, but standard monitoring systems based only on ETR290 do not raise any alert for these conditions. Services protected by GoldTS catch these ‘ETR290-legal’ errors and provide a much more valuable real-world quality assurance for operators of digital media services.

“At CommunicAsia 2015 we are unveiling a real advance in the field of digital media monitoring. Our Gold TS Reference is the result of fresh thinking and years of R&D, and it provides the kind of service protection that operators could only dream about until now.” — Simen K. Frostad, Chairman, Bridge Technologies
