B'casters' easing ATSC 3.0 transition: Artel, Qligent integrate

MUMBAI: Real-time, multimedia delivery solutions company Artel has partnered cloud-based, enterprise-level media analysis specialist Qligent to help broadcasters ease the transition to ATSC 3.0. 

The integration provides network operators transitioning to new systems the opportunity to validate interoperability and test configurations, optimising infrastructures and operational efficiencies.

As broadcasters begin to manage their repacking assignments, implement plans for ATSC 3.0, and migrate toward all-IP networks, the dynamic nature of all the ATSC 3.0 components and the added criticality of IP links between the physical locations require pro-active real-time monitoring and analysis of the media service delivery chain. 

As part of this partnership, Qligent has integrated Artel's DigiLink and InfinityLink platforms into its Qligent® Vision solution offering broadcasters a broader view of end-to-end signal paths and Artel's solutions deployed throughout IP and fiber-based network. 

"Qligent's expertise for telecom and broadcast networks aligns with Artel's mission," said Artel chief revenue officer Tony Morelli. 

"Partnering with Qligent offers the industry confidence that as over-the-air technology grows more complex, vendors within the ATSC 3.0 ecosystem are coming together to help offload the infrastructure deployment concerns so broadcasters can focus on accelerating new business models," he added.

Qligent COO Ted Korte said, "We are excited about the opportunity to break down artificial silos. An IP-based studio to transmitter link has become a critical component within ATSC 3.0 and Artel has an excellent reputation for reliability. Now we can keep a close watch on the signal as it passes through the entire chain with a single view but from multiple perspectives. It will be easier to test a wide variety of configurations with immediate feedback on stimulus and response for quick proofs-of-concept and optimisations."

Qligent's software-defined approach provides an open, vendor-agnostic platform to monitor performance, integrity and compliance of multiple signals, streams and systems across enterprises of any size. Artel's integrated IP- and fiber-based solutions include the award-winning DigiLink media transport platform; InfinityLink broadcast media transport solutions; and FiberLink, one of the industry's largest selections of fiber optic transmission products.
