Spirent Communications (News - Alert) has licensed Telchemy’s VQmon/HD IPTV
performance analysis software with Telchemy (News - Alert) Video Quality Metrics (TVQM) for use in their Video Quality Analyze (VQA) IPTV test tool. The alliance between the two companies will allow service providers and network equipment manufacturers to measure video quality and a variety of video related metrics.
Alan Clark (News - Alert), Telchemy’s CEO and president said that their company is pleased to be working with Spirent Communications to introduce high performance video test tools to the industry. He noted that Spirent, a provider of telecom test equipment, is aggressively focused on the emerging IPTV (News - Alert) market.
According to Jack Douglass, director of Video Technology at Spirent Communications, they picked Telchemy’s VQmon/HD with TVQM technology as it provides comprehensive, accurate real-time metrics for IPTV.
Telchemy provides IPTV and VoIP
performance analysis. Douglass said that their company is pleased to extend their relationship to encompass both VQmon/HD for IPTV and VQmon/SA for VoIP.
The highly efficient VQmon/HD is a fast and compact software agent that has the ability to monitor IP
based video streams in real-time. The solution measures the distribution of lost and discarded IP packets within each video frame, examines the type of codec
and video bandwidth, estimates video content, computes per-frame video quality and uses a perceptual model to calculate IPTV QoE metrics such as Video MOS.
