NewBay Media’s Best of Show Award for Bridge Technologies VB288

OSLO, Norway —  September 29, 2014 — The VB288 Objective QoE Content Extractor from Bridge Technologies was the recipient of a prestigious Best of Show Award from NewBay Media, presented at IBC 2014 in Amsterdam by TVBEurope.

NewBay Media’s Best of Show Awards are evaluated by an independent judging panel of industry experts, and are selected based on innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry. TVBEurope has been inundated with nominations for the first ever Best of Show Awards programme at IBC, and is delighted to be recognising those products and services that are driving true innovation and excellence in our sector.

“What a pleasure it is to be a winner in the first edition of these new Awards,” said Simen Frostad, Chairman, Bridge Technologies. “The VB288 is a real innovation in its field, and we’re delighted that the judging panel understood the sometimes complex issues and appreciated the benefits and potential the VB288 offers.”

The VB288 was shown at IBC 2014 for the first time with additional functionality that allows the virtual video wall to decrypt, view and monitor OTT services and real-time streams side-by-side in the same advanced graphical display environment, with configurable displays of status metrics. Supporting MPEG-2, h.264/MPEG-4 and h.265/HEVC streams, the VB288’s browser-based remote video-wall delivers full view-anywhere visual status, alarms (including loudness compliance alarms) and analysis. Operators can inspect very large numbers of content services, with dependable metrics and alarming on verifiable, accurate and objective parameters that affect QoE.

The award winners will be featured in the October issue of TVBEurope, and in a dedicated Best of Show Awards publication that will be released digitally across the NewBay Media database.

“We are enormously proud of our Best of Show recipients,” says TVBEurope Publisher, Steve Connolly. “Recognition with an award at IBC2014 from NewBay Media is a strong vote of confidence from our leading industry publications.”
