IneoQuest Launches Expedus DVA as Breakthrough Industry Solution for Integrated Quality of Service and Quality of Experience

Leading Video Quality Monitoring Company Answers Industry Need for Effective Solution to Monitor and Address Video Content and Delivery Issues Simultaneously

MANSFIELD, MA--(Marketwire - September 9, 2010) - IneoQuest Technologies, Inc., the global leader of intelligent video quality and service assurance solutions, announced today the availability of its latest innovation, Expedus DVA, an advanced headend video probe for simultaneous management of content quality and transport availability. A clear breakthrough in the industry because it monitors both quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE), Expedus DVA will for the first time integrate QoS and QoE for hundreds of programs, enabling service providers to deliver top quality to their subscribers and optimize operational efficiency.

The timely diagnosis of QoS issues allows for proactive response before QoE degradation occurs. On the other side, QoE verification at the headend ensures that the original video and audio meet the quality requirements. By correlating QoS and QoE management performance and delivering rich image visualization capabilities, Expedus DVA reduces mean time to repair issues and controls operational, while improving viewer satisfaction.

"Traditional video monitoring approaches focus on QoS and QoE separately, missing the benefits of a unified solution," said Pilar Somohano, product marketing at IneoQuest. "Leading video service providers approached IneoQuest with a need for a headend tool that would easily enable simultaneous assurance of content and program availability. With that in mind, we developed Expedus DVA, expanding our widely deployed PinPoint solution to ensure content quality at the origin. In addition, our transport probes ensure that quality is preserved throughout the distribution network and our management systems easily correlate end-to-end information to simplify network administration, planning and troubleshooting."

For easy association of delivery performance with specific video scenes, Expedus DVA features video thumbnails and picture visualization. Its modular capabilities also include loudness and dialnorm monitoring, ad insertion analysis, perceptual quality verification of video and audio, and in-depth decode of SI/PSI/PSIP tables. Expedus DVA integrates seamlessly with IneoQuest's monitoring portfolio, to address today's operational challenges and provide intelligent video management from source to screen.

To address the specific needs of both cable and telco video providers, IneoQuest offers two versions of Expedus DVA, the Expedus DVA MSO Edition and the Expedus DVA Telco Edition. Additionally, IneoQuest is developing special editions for test & measurement and videoconference applications.

IneoQuest will be demonstrating Expedus DVA live for the first time at IBC 2010 in Amsterdam from September 9-14, 2010. Attendees can visit show Booth 1.A74 for more information.
