Bridge Technologies’ VB288 Content Extractor Wins NewBay Media’s Best of Show Award
OSLO, Norway — April 28, 2014 — Bridge Technologies’VB288 Objective QoE Content Extractor is the recipient of one of the industry’s most prestigious technology honors, NewBay Media’s Best of Show Award, presented at the 2014 NAB Show in Las Vegas by TV Technology magazine.
NewBay Media’s Best of Show Awards are evaluated by a panel of engineers and industry experts, and are selected based on innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry.
Only a small number of products were chosen for NewBay Media’s Best of Show Award from among hundreds of new products in competition.
“We are enormously proud of our Best of Show recipients,” says NewBay Media Broadcast & Video Group Vice President & Group Publisher Eric Trabb. “Recognition with an award at the NAB Show from NewBay Media’s Broadcast & Video Group is a strong vote of confidence and admiration from our leading industry publications.”
The VB288 Content Extractor delivers visual content extraction, status displays and alerts to a virtual video wall display that can be viewed through any web browser. Running on a standard high-specification server, the VB288 powers displays of large numbers of HD quality H.264/MPEG4 and H.265/HEVC channels simultaneously, with integrated graphical alerts based on Objective QoE tests. The VB288 is a key component of the Objective QoE system, which implements a QoE solution based solely on the empirical assessment of objective performance factors specific to digital media operations, rather than using the ‘opinion-scoring’ method common until now. Objective QoE provides a more accurate tool for QoE assessment, free from the spurious and misleading results generated by conventional systems.
With an easy ‘embedded feel’ setup and operation experience, and accessible from any location, the VB288 provides a highly effective tool for integrating Objective QoE into digital media monitoring for connected media services.
Receiving the Newbay Best of Show Award, Bridge Technologies’Chairman Simen Frostad said: “Challenging the conventional approach is the only thing you can do, if you know there is a better way. The VB288 and our whole Objective QoE concept is the result of our efforts to clear the fog around Quality of Experience monitoring, so that digital media operators have a better grip on monitoring overall.”
