As Astec prepares to launch iBroadcast 2015, they provide an insight of what we can expect from the latest version and how they are significantly driving down the cost of ownership of Network Management Systems.
iBroadcast is a leading, end-to-end, multi-vendor Network Management System, delivering real-time control and monitoring to the satellite, terrestrial, cable, IPTV, broadband and other broadcast sectors.
To celebrate their 15th anniversary providing control and monitoring solutions to improve the operations of their customers, Astec are launching iBroadcast 2015. Chris Barlow, Astec CTO explains why this latest version is a real paradigm shift for network management systems. “We thought long and hard about the direction of the product and the features that were most relevant to our customers. Astec is committed to providing solutions which empower our customers to improve their operations and to this end, we have focussed heavily on the configuration tools and openness of the product to make it more straightforward for anyone to implement an iBroadcast solution.”
“One of the most significant benefits is the simplified configuration of drivers which means any user with some very basic training is able to configure new drivers for iBroadcast. Our target is for the majority of drivers to be configured in under 15 minutes which gives users the flexibility to select the equipment that best feeds their operational requirements rather than considering which equipment may or may not have existing drivers for their Network Management System.”
iBroadcast 2015 will be unveiled at NAB 2015, 13th – 16th April. Visit Astec at stand N4421 for a discussion and demonstration.
