BEAVERTON, Ore., Sept. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tektronix, Inc., an industry-leading innovator of video test and monitoring solutions, today announced that the Sentry ABR video quality monitoring platform has received an impressive 4.0 Diamond rating in the Broadband Technology Report's 2016 Diamond Technology Reviews, marking the eighth year a Tektronix product has received a 4.0 or higher score in this highly regarded product reviews program.
In its eleventh year, the Diamond Technology Reviews (commonly referred to as "the Diamonds") are determined by unbiased evaluations by a distinguished and independent panel of Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) national board members and cable engineering experts, including senior executives from the largest U.S. cable operators.
"As the trend and demand for multiscreen viewing and TV Everywhere continues to grow so does the demand for a high quality experience regardless of the device being used. For a system as complex as ABR, there is a lot that can go wrong, making quality monitoring essential," said Charlie Dunn, general manager, Video Product Line, Tektronix. "Sentry ABR gives service providers the critical tools they need to ensure that what goes out to customers is as great as what came in, leading to the best possible customer experience."
The Sentry ABR video quality-monitoring platform delivers end-to-end ABR quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE) monitoring with the recent addition of decryption and decode functionality. Sentry ABR is part of Tektronix' end-to-end video quality and service assurance solution for monitoring OTT (Over The Top), TV Everywhere and multiscreen services.
