IneoQuest Announces Cricket AdapStream to Enhance Company Leadership on Adaptive Streaming Video

Video Quality and Service Assurance Leader Reinforces Innovations in HTTP Adaptive Streaming Technology; Will Demonstrate Live at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2010

MANSFIELD, MA--(Marketwire - October 18, 2010) - IneoQuest Technologies, Inc., the global leader of intelligent video quality and service assurance solutions, today announced the launch of Cricket AdapStream, reinforcing the Company's innovations in HTTP adaptive streaming technology. This new product will be demonstrated live for the first time at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo starting on October 20, 2010.

Cricket AdapStream is the first probe designed especially for adaptive streaming monitoring, simultaneously monitoring multiple flows of HTTP adaptive video and supporting leading industry protocols from Apple, Microsoft and Adobe. Industry experts have evaluated Cricket AdapStream for its innovative approach, and awarded it a 4-Diamond rating in Broadband Gear Report's 2010 Diamond Technology Reviews.

Additionally, Cricket AdapStream incorporates VeriStream, a patented metric developed by IneoQuest for the evaluation of HTTP adaptive video performance. With VeriStream integration, operators can receive conclusive pass/fail criteria to ensure program availability.

"Service providers are increasingly looking at HTTP adaptive delivery to enable new efficiencies and powerful services," said Pilar Somohano, IneoQuest product marketing. "To ensure high viewer satisfaction, providers need to easily monitor multiple services, protocols and locations in a condensed way that reduces MTTR and optimizes OPEX. We are proud to lead the industry in adaptive video technology with the introduction of Cricket AdapStream and the VeriStream metric."

IneoQuest will be conducting live demonstrations of both new technologies at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in New Orleans from October 20-22, 2010. In addition, IneoQuest will demonstrate for the first time Expedus DVA, which was launched in September 2010. Attendees can visit show Booth 2139 for more information.
