Three Reasons Why Monitoring
Live OTT Services is Essential
A global surge in OTT video consumption has created significant business growth
for broadcasters, content owners, and service providers, especially in Asia,
says Kanishka Tongya, Sales Director at Interra Systems...

T

his is the region where Digital TV Research
predicts that OTT revenues will reach $48
billion by 2024.
Live sports and events streaming, in
particular, is rising. While live sports
attract huge audiences and monetization
opportunities, the quality of video streaming
has to be near perfect. Let's look at three
reasons why delivering live OTT video is a
challenge and how centralized monitoring
solutions can help.
OTT is a Complex Environment: For
years content owners and service providers
delivered content over managed networks.
OTT video delivery is more complex and
is still evolving, with multiple different
screens, formats, DRM requirements, and
new standards and specifications under
development. Furthermore, content quality
changes based on available bandwidth and

whether there is network congestion, giving
service providers less control over viewers'
quality of experience.
Live Issues Require Immediate Attention:
In the VOD world, service providers
aren't under as intense time constraints
and pressure to fix quality-related issues
compared with live streaming. If the video
stream stalls or stops during a live event,
viewers might miss an important winning
goal or slam dunk. Content owners and
service providers must fix whatever issue is
impacting the video stream in real-time, which
can be tricky, since the problem could be
happening at any point of the workflow, from
signal reception in the OB van to transcoding,
encryption, packaging and distribution.
Problems Must be Stopped Early On: It's
not uncommon for service providers to be in
the dark about OTT quality issues until they've

received complaints from their viewers. At
that point, it's possible the problem has
gotten out of control and hard to fix. Service
providers need to take a proactive approach
to service assurance in the live OTT service
environment, since viewers are depending on
watching the event in real-time.
Why Centralized Monitoring is Best:
Monitoring live OTT service is a must given
the complexity of the video streaming
environment and immediacy with which
errors need to be fixed. A truly great
monitoring system can bring efficiency to live
OTT workflows, as well as ensure that service

providers are aware of quality of service and
QoE issues.
Today, some monitoring systems only tackle
one aspect of the workflow, or are capable of
monitoring live services but not VOD or vice
versa. Those solutions are not sufficient.
Service providers need a monitoring solution
that provides a centralized view of the entire
content chain and OTT infrastructure from
source to destination to better understand
the OTT live workflow, narrow in on issues
quickly, and assure high quality on every
screen. See us on Stand: 4T3-06 Suntec.

Protect Your Data with
A-B-C and 3-2-1
Protecting data can be made simpler by looking at the
mechanisms involved, says Marc M. Batschkus, Archiware...

T

he A-B-C of data management describes
the most commonly used processes to
protect data. A-B-C spells Archive, Backup
and Cloning, all of which are essential to
cover all aspects of data protection and data
preservation.
A is for Archive: All files and projects that
have been completed should migrate to the
long-term archive, where they are catalogued
and preserved. For returning customers,
for reference, and re-use, the
archive provides the "Single
Source of Truth", because it is
the one and only place to look
for files. The Archive catalog
provides browsing and visual
presentation of media files with
thumbnails and proxy clips.
Finding files is made easy
by providing metadata fields
and menus for searching and
combined searching.

The metadata schema should be
customized to fit the needs of the company
and the workflow.
B is for Backup: For less time-critical,
an automated backup is the way to go.
Depending on the requirements, that backup
can go to disk, cloud or tape. If a file is
deleted or corrupted, it can be found in
the Backup index and a restore triggered.
The backup always replicates the present

production storage, i.e. files needed for dayto-day work. All files that have been finalized
or delivered can and should migrate to the
archive in order to keep the main production
storage and the files residing on it at a
reasonable number.
C is for Cloning: Time critical production
storage needs to be cloned to a secondary
volume. This serves as fail-over replacement
for the primary production storage. Cloning
is needed where there is no
tolerance for the runtime of a
restore. Cloning provides an
identical copy or replication
of a complete storage on a
secondary storage device, which
can then be used as fail-over for
immediate data availability so
production can continue within
minutes. A cloning strategy
requires a secondary storage
The 3-2-1 rule is a basic rule of data protection that can at least to some degree

Protecting data can be made simpler

replace the speed and performance of the
primary production storage.
3-2-1 to protect your data: The 3-2-1 rule
is the most basic rule of data protection and
should be observed in any professional IT
environment where (media) files play an
essential role. The rule states that at least
three copies of each file should exist. They
should be stored on two different types of
media (LTO tape, HDD, SSD, Cloud). One
of the copies must be stored off-site for
maximum security.
The Archiware P5 suite covers the A-B-C
and 3-2-1 rule.
