California-Based Elecard Devices Chooses Skyline’s DataMiner Platform to Power Elecard’s video quality monitoring solution.

Fri 12, 04 2024

Milpitas, CA – April 9, 2024 – Elecard, the leading developer of video compression and video quality analysis technologies, is announcing collaboration with Skyline Communications for Skyline’s DataMiner orchestration platform. The collaboration brings together Elecard’s widely-used IP monitoring and probing software, Boro, and Skyline’s DataMiner, renowned for its robust control and data consolidation features.

The integration incorporates the use of the Boro connector for smooth transmission of QoS & QoE probing data directly into the DataMiner management platform for further processing and visualization on Dataminer’s dashboards and LowCode APPs. Elecard’s connector has been published in the DataMiner Catalog and can be downloaded free of charge.

Elecard customers will now benefit from a unified presentation of network performance data with quality metrics retrieved from the network points equipped with Elecard’s monitoring probes on the contribution, after encoding and packaging sides, and throughout the delivery pipeline. The lightweight software nature of the probes allows quick and transparent integration into the network nodes for data gathering from multiple types of streams: UDP, RTP, SRT, NDI, CDI, RTMP, MPEG-DASH, HLS, and supervising quality operations across OTT, cable, and linear TV.

The media companies, network operators of all tiers, and video service providers who rely on the DataMiner platform for managing their network implementation workflows now get a definite operational advantage of the real-time in-depth monitoring of the transport and video layers provided by Elecard’s Boro.

“It marks a very important milestone for the success of Boro which enhances automation of data aggregation from probes and its consolidation in DataMiner, ” said Anton Proshutya, VP Product Strategy. “Our goal is to really give the broadcast engineers and managers of the video quality operations the real-time data on media quality, thus adding the value of Boro features to the full visibility of their networks enabled by the DataMiner platform.

“It’s great to see how fast the Elecard team has created the DataMiner connector to manage their Boro platform. Since the DataMiner Integration Studio (DIS) can be downloaded and installed free of charge and all DataMiner & DIS documentation has been made public on our Dojo platform, combined with a comprehensive set of training material, there was almost no further support required by the Skyline team to bring the Elecard DevOps team up to speed,“ said Thomass Gunkel, Market Director Broadcast at Skyline Communications. ”We are looking forward to further joining forces with the Elecard team to offer the right solutions and bring value to our customers.”
