Because video operators are large, geographically diverse, and deliver complex services, the ability of the operator to check their QoE and view their service across their footprint is critical. Place-shifting is such a useful capability within operations that consumer-grade appliances - up until recently the only devices to offer this functionality — have been deployed widely by networks and multichannel video programming distributors (MVPDs). What was intended to serve as a consumer device for consumer place-shifting streaming became an important part of their operations, but for better or worse?
Going beyond standard monitoring, this technology can be leveraged to support a variety of other valuable applications, such as loudness monitoring for compliance, spot check, ad monitoring, and interactive testing or applications.
This whitepaper by Volicon outlines the benefits associated with consumer placed-shifting devices, the initial problems associated with this and how these challenges, including reliability issues, were realised and dealt with.
