2012 NAB Show Preview
Bridge Technologies designs, develops and manufactures advanced analysis, measurement and monitoring solutions for the digital broadcast and telecommunications industries.
VB330 Media Monitoring Probe
The VB330 is the first product to be based on Bridge Technologies’ entirely new 10GB architecture, and it offers the highest performance-to-form-factor ratio available in the monitoring and analysis sector. With three blades fitting in a single 1-RU chassis and each VB330 probe having two 10GB interfaces, the system can deliver a massive 60GB monitoring capability. Designed for extremely high-density applications at points of maximum data throughput in today’s 10GB core networks, the VB330’s enormous capacity offers telcos, network operators, and digital media organizations a monitoring solution with the potential for scaling to match almost any level of throughput
VB12-RF Broadcast-IP Probe
The new VB12-RF is the most portable comprehensive monitoring/measurement appliance available. Designed for real-world use by engineers on the road, the VB12-RF packs every required broadcast and IP interface into a ruggedized chassis with a form factor smaller than a laptop computer. It is smaller, lighter, and tougher than any alternative, with the widest range of built-in interfaces for RF, ASI, and IP, full TR 101 290 alarming and analysis, and support for all media transportation codecs. The VB12-RF is far more practical, complete, and robust than traditional larger, heavier, and fragile PC-based alternatives.
VB252 Monitoring Probe
The new VB252 is the monitoring probe for DVB-T2 networks, and part of the industry’s first complete monitoring solution for DVB-T2, including the T2-MI protocol. The dual-input VB252 provides external GPS lock for accurate drift monitoring for SFN networks, high-quality MER measurement, and level readings. For monitoring at transmitter sites and field locations for quality validation, the VB252 is available from Q4 2011.
VideoBRIDGE 4.9 Software
This new release adds enhancements and upgrades for the complete VideoBRIDGE range of products. At the show, highlights and previews of upcoming versions of the system will be demonstrated including powerful SQL database features, advanced graphic displays, probe auto-discovery, enhanced device control and more.
microVB Advanced Data Gathering
This solution for deep packet remote analysis at the set-top box now has complete data-gathering capabilities, allowing operators to capture any packet that passes through the unit and to forward those packets filtered into third-party protocol analysis software. The microVB’s new advanced data-gathering function gives media service providers and telcos unique 24/7 real-time analysis and low-level analytics capability, allowing unprecedented accuracy in fault resolution of any condition at the subscriber premises, and previously unavailable insight into how factors such as packet loss levels affect real-world service quality.
EC Enhanced Chassis
This new enhanced chassis for VideoBRIDGE probes further increases ruggedness and resilience for remote operation in extreme conditions. The new chassis features redundant power supplies, front-to-back airflow, six CPU-controlled high-speed fans, and high-grade cast alloy metalwork. The new chassis has been designed for NEBS-compliance, and has also been engineered to accept future generations of high-power cards.
