Columbus Communications, a provider of digital cable television, broadband Internet and digital landline telephony across the Caribbean, has deployed Triveni Digital’s StreamScope Portal MPEG analysis and troubleshooting tool across its operations in the region.
This tool enhances Columbus’ ability to monitor and improve video streams from its distribution plants on multiple islands in the Caribbean, creating a more enhanced viewing experience for its customers.
Columbus is a privately held diversified telecommunications company based in Barbados. It provides services in Trinidad, Jamaica, Barbados, Grenada, St. Lucia and Curacao under the brand name FLOW and in St. Vincent, the Grenadines and Antigua under the brand name Karib Cable.
Triveni Digital’s resale partner, Incospec Communications, a Canadian-based corporation that provides video integration services worldwide, proposed the StreamScope Portal to Columbus.
With its web-based graphical user interface, the StreamScope portal reduces the time required to detect, isolate and repair video impairments that impact the quality of the viewer experience, including video tiling, lip sync errors, intermittent tuning, inconsistent loudness levels and missing components.
With the service, companies like Columbus have instant access to alerts, video thumbnails, audio graphs, relevant data and file-based analysis, allowing them to rapidly perform real-time analysis and monitoring of video channels including DTV transport streams.
