Qligent, the Florida-based provider of cloud-based media delivery quality assurance tools, has released version 3.10 of its flagship Vision software for media monitoring and analysis.
Free to existing customers with a valid support contract and running on the Linux CentOS platform, Vision v3.10 enables full integration with Wasabi’s Cloud platform for agnostic video, audio, and data storage and retention.
Vision v3.10 also strengthens software security, improves measurement, and more efficiently communicates performance through scheduled reports.
Qligent Vision is a software-based solution that is available as an on-premises, cloud-native or cloud-hybrid product. The company says Vision “provides a true picture of media performance across multiple delivery platforms out to the last mile, with actionable insights across QoS, QoE and regulatory compliance.”
Qligent began partnering with Wasabi for cloud storage last year on select projects to offer customers a lower cost, cloud provider-agnostic alternative to expensive proprietary cloud storage platforms. Vision’s enhanced security features are now fully compliant with Wasabi’s enterprise-class cloud environments, allowing all Qligent customers to leverage Wasabi’s low data storage costs, fast performance (uploads and downloads), unlimited capacity, and redundant infrastructure.
The latest Vision software release also strengthens stream measurement for cable and telco customers. Vision customers in these markets can now scramble each sub-stream, or elementary stream, within each transport stream at the physical layer. This provides greater insight into QoS monitoring for the video, audio and data encoded within each elementary stream moving through the headend.
Qligent has also unlocked broader access to on-demand reports, allowing all Vision customers to schedule enhanced reports detailing media performance at specific times. The reports leverage Vision’s real-time data inherent analysis capabilities to gather specific performance information and generate detailed reports for presentation on Vision’s customizable, centralized dashboard.
“Our latest Vision release provides value for all of our customers seeking to accelerate their transition to cloud by offering a lower cost, highly secure and infinitely scalable storage and management platform,” said Lang Cooksey, Product Manager at Qligent. “We are also excited about Vision’s new innovations that provide greater visibility into performance, whether a content distributor seeking to strengthen its QoE monitoring reach, a service provide seeking better penetration and visibility into the physical transport layer, or an operations manager looking to better understand the health of their media streams and network performance.”
