Now Available: The Telestream Cloud Stream Monitor


Telestream, which provides workflow automation, media processing, quality monitoring and test and measurement solutions for the production and distribution of video, has brought to market a new option — and a new name — for its live ABR monitoring service.

Introducing the Telestream Cloud Stream Monitor service, which has added contribution feed monitoring and ad tracking to the system’s existing edge feed monitoring features.

With the addition of contribution feed monitoring, media companies and service providers can now benefit from end-to-end correlated monitoring at every point in the streaming delivery chain, Telestream says.

“Our customers have been increasingly leveraging cloud services to transcode, package and
originate live streams,” said Ken Haren, Director of Product Management at Telestream. “By enabling support for popular contribution feed protocols such as SRT and Zixi, we can now provide our customers end-to-end visibility in the cloud, enabling real-time correlated
analysis and video delivery metrics from cloud contribution through to CDN edge.”

Telestream Cloud Stream Monitor delivers insights into the health and performance of video services that are leveraging public cloud resources to route, transform and deliver video.

“With a single mouse click it’s now possible to provide end-to-end actionable intelligence, measure the health of mezzanine cloud contribution feeds, and identify impairments impacting audience engagement at the CDN edge,” Telestream says.

The previous generation of the service was focused on monitoring the second half of the
video pipeline – measuring ABR assets at the CDN edge. “With Telestream Cloud Stream
Monitor, the service adds monitoring of transport streams delivered into cloud processing
centers via secure transport protocols like Zixi and SRT. Stream Monitor provides real-time
measurement of critical metrics, immediately identifying network delivery challenges,
encoding quality issues and audience impacting impairments,” the company says.
