Pixelmetrix launches OMG-Lite, as part of its OTT Media Grinder (OMG) QoS/QoE for Streaming Video product line expansion
Singapore, April 23, 2013 – Pixelmetrix, a leading innovator for professional video and television solutions, has launched the OTT Media Grinder (OMG) Lite, simply referred to as the OMG-Lite, widening its OTT product line to meet any budget or requirement.
Providing the same insight into OTT subscriber as its big brother, the OTT Media Grinder (OMG), the OMG-Lite provides multi-client simulation at price levels comparable to today’s smartphones on the market. Following the upgrade of the OMG with Service Quality Analytics, the OMG-Lite is the answer to operators seeking a simple, yet effective source information about their service quality. Equipped with a Gigabit Ethernet port, the OMG-Lite is capable of generating up to 1 Gbps of OTT client traffic, and emulating up to 10 clients, all while collecting comprehensive measurement data.
Danny Wilson, Pixelmetrix President & CEO said, “We’re observing steady demands and streams of encouraging feedback from customers and prospective customers alike, on our OMG offering. While the OMG-Lite fits well on a shoestring budget, there is no shortfall on functionality. It’s all about customers’ choice – compared to more complicated products on the market, customers can choose any combination of the OMG-Lite and/or full-featured OMG to best suit their environments.”
The OMG-Lite also collects key QoS performance statistics on the seven key VideoMarginTM Metrics as well as other performance information, including HTTP error codes. User-definable test plans can be executed at will, and the system provides long-term storage of historical results for regular reports or instant viewing.
Pixelmetrix develops a host of Preventive Monitoring Solutions, for Quality of Service and Quality of Experience, that offer unique attributes and versatility, allowing operators to achieve end-to-end visibility, and keep tabs on their network architecture while reducing operating expenses.
