received its first order for the Electronic Couch Potato (ECP) and ECP Consolidator from a major IPTV operator based in Europe. The ECP, an after the network probe, measures and reports end-users’ experience for delivered video services. Integral elements include telemetry and fault information from multiple points along the transmission chain. So is the consolidation of that information to one or more points of central control and observation. As a central management console, the ECP Consolidator works in tandem with a collection of ECPs. It presents the status of all broadcasted channels scanned.
Telepresence, a key feature of the ECP, allows remote monitoring of the audio and video output of the STB. This is achieved by encoding the audio and video signals and streaming them back to the central site. In addition, numerous measurements and parameters for QoE and QoS are reported. This facilitates a close audit of what is really going on out there.
