Broadcast Quality OTT
Streaming Requires
the Right FoQus
Joel Daly, Vice President Product Management, IneoQuest solutions,
Telestream looks at the applications of FoQus in broadcast streaming...

A

s the video industry continues
to experience seismic change,
network operators, video service
providers and content owners must
constantly make critical strategic and
tactical decisions - ones that lead them
to offer the "right" content, provide
infrastructure that can stay ahead of
demand, and above all, keep video
streaming smoothly. All of this happens
while keeping business realities - cost,
revenue and profit - in mind.
Good decisions rely on accurate,
detailed knowledge. The right
intelligence at the right time can mean
the difference between success and
failure.
The DNA of Telestream's IneoQuest
solutions was formed at the turn of
this century, during the emergence
of packet-based video and IPTV.
IneoQuest innovators worked with
network operators to develop the test
and measurement equipment they
needed to quickly diagnose issues in
the lab.
The IneoQuest team quickly
recognised that this "reactive"
approach to packet video issues
was insufficient, as viewership
and revenue would be lost when
the problems were diagnosed and
resolved after the fact. The industry
needed to monitor the live video
streams 24/7, to proactively detect
and prevent issues before they had
a significant impact on the viewing
audience.
Standards
Collaboration with industry leaders
resulted in the creation of key
standards for measuring IP video
quality at defined points in the
operator's network and patented
solutions to measure the right
metrics at these different points, from
headend to network to endpoint. The

"Video Service Assurance" market was
born to support a "broadcast quality"
viewing experience over singleoperator "managed" IPTV networks.
Moving ahead more than a
decade, today's over-the-top (OTT)
video streaming industry relies
on a complex ecosystem, one with
a tenuous collection of disparate
service providers and networks,
interconnected by public and private
"clouds," content delivery networks,
and the vagaries of the Internet.
Distribution
When things are working well, this
"unmanaged," incredibly complex
distribution system delivers video
in multiple formats to a huge and
growing list of playback devices.
But here's the challenge: when
things are not working well, viewers
may not tell you. They are more
likely to just go elsewhere; viewers
who are angry enough will even use
social media to let the world know
how terrible their experience was,
multiplying the damage to your video
business.
For today's many viewing scenarios,
"broadcast quality" remains the gold
standard. It is also elusive and will
remain so until the key stakeholders
in the video business know whether
the playback experience is meeting
minimum performance benchmarks

and, if not, why not? Where are the
problems and how can they be fixed?
How is the content delivery network
(CDN) performing? Is the content
being encoded at optimal bitrates to
minimise delivery and storage costs
while keeping viewers engaged?
Telestream IneoQuest solutions
provide actionable video intelligence
through
the
development
of
technology, tools and relationships
with companies like Conviva and
others in the OTT ecosystem. The
goal? To enable OTT video to achieve
broadcast quality - and beyond.
Intelligence
Video driven businesses need the
intelligence that Telestream IneoQuest
solutions can provide. Our FoQus
platform is a suite of intelligence-

quality and viewer behaviour data

IaaS-based offering, FoQus>Delivery.
