 Agama Technologies AB : Agama Launches Next-Gen Analyzer OTT and New Massive
                Linear TV Monitoring Probe at TV Connect 2013

(LINKÖPING, March 12, 2013) - Agama Technologies, the video service quality
assurance expert, is launching the next generation of its Analyzer OTT for
adaptive bitrate (ABR) streaming services as well as a new probe for
high-capacity, cost-efficient linear TV monitoring, Analyzer NET 10G-500, at
TV Connect 2013. In addition to these highlights, Agama is pleased to preview
upcoming Version 4.4 of the DTV Monitoring Solution, with all its latest
developments and additions.

Agama's Analyzer OTT is a sophisticated ABR quality assurance probe range for
fully automated QoS/QoE monitoring and testing of over-the-top video services.
It offers unique depth and breadth of analysis with industry-leading
concurrent capacity, combining detailed metrics on the whole ABR stack with
analysis capacity for hundreds of concurrent streams down to the TS layer.
With an intuitive GUI, supporting presentation and analysis of monitoring
information in multiple dimensions, Analyzer OTT creates transparency and
situational awareness for operators on all relevant QoE and QoS metrics for
assets and their profiles by visualizing current real-time status as well as
showing metrics over time.

The next generation of the product family, being launched at TV Connect 2013,
introduces support for advanced content level analysis of Apple^® HTTP Live
Streaming (HLS) streams, which enables in-depth verification of the actual
video data and visual confidence monitoring in the form of thumbnails - a
valuable new capability in any HLS based OTT head-end. Additionally, Agama
strengthens the Analyzer's integration towards the central management system,
Agama Enterprise Server, for more efficient correlation, troubleshooting and
impact analysis capabilities in end-to-end service assurance deployments.

At TV Connect, Agama also launches Analyzer NET 10G-500, a new product for
high-capacity, cost-efficient monitoring of linear TV, suitable for operators
with larger service offerings and many HD channels. The new monitoring probe,
already proven in commercial deployments, supports monitoring on a fully
loaded 10 Gigabit network with up to 500 separate services concurrently
monitored. This is done with full analysis on the IP, RTP and the transport
stream layer, including TR290 Priority 1 and Priority 2 parameters, for all
services all the time.

"We are excited to present our latest innovations and refinements at TV
Connect 2013, all designed to provide operators with the actionable insight
needed to being able to assure service quality for every customer, regardless
of distribution form and player device," says Johan Görsjö, Director of
Product Management at Agama Technologies. "In addition to the highlights
already presented, we will showcase upcoming Version 4.4, with enhancements
across the complete product suite of the Agama DTV Monitoring Solution. News
includes highly improved problem triangulation and sophisticated correlation
features, several workflow and presentation refinements, enhanced reporting
capabilities with increased flexibility, new role-based dashboard widgets for
at-a-glance status overviews, and much more."

Agama will showcase its complete solution for end-to-end video service
assurance, including of course both Analyzer OTT and Analyzer NET 10G-500, at
TV Connect 2013 in London on March 19-21. For a live demonstration of cutting
edge service QA for IP, Cable and OTT video services, and to learn more about

and other service providers and technology vendors as part of the Service
Quality Management focus stream on March 20, covering strategies, approaches

11.30 and is divided into three sessions; 'Managing quality and improving
service experience', 'Enhancing the multiplatform experience', and 'Satisfying
the connected consumer'. Agama's CEO, Mikael Dahlgren, will be giving the
introducing presentation at 11.40.
