IneoQuest offers a comprehensive video quality assurance solution for Cable Operators that provides the business intelligence and real-time monitoring necessary for optimizing the complexities of video delivery networks. Comprehensive quality and service assurance solutions are essential as the amount of digital video delivered to the home increases. While consumers are demanding more personalized and interactive services, cable operators have expanded their offerings ranging from high-definition video and video on demand (VOD) to TV Everywhere. To address these challenges, cable operators worldwide are recognizing that convergence of their IP and MPEG video infrastructures is critical to success. IP networking enables all their services on a single unified platform and delivers new services at a pace that can meet market demand. All digital transition, Switched Digital Video (SDV), VOD, and targeted advertising are some of the many initiatives that involve convergence of cable IP and MPEG video infrastructures, and IneoQuest is the key partner empowering cable operators in their operations.
Complexities in the cable operators’ service model greatly increase the chances that video quality will be degraded somewhere before the consumer views the video. At the same time, consumers are increasingly sensitive to video quality degradation: consumers demand high quality video, especially when they have invested in high-definition devices and pay more for premium and high definition content. Proactively maintaining excellent video quality is essential in order to reduce customer churn and assure revenue.
