IneoQuest and Conviva Announces Technical Partnership at IBC 2016 which is Focused on Enabling the Highest Quality OTT Video Experiences

IneoQuest and Conviva announced a technical partnership at IBC 2016 which is focused on enabling the highest quality OTT video experiences. By combining Conviva's consumer-side Quality of Experience (QoE) measurement with IneoQuest's content preparation and delivery performance quality measurement, this collaboration delivers the industry's first complete, end-to-end view of Internet video delivery, pinpointing the exact location and root cause of streaming issues. Publishers and network operators now have greater visibility into their online video delivery to quickly address streaming issues causing customer dissatisfaction. When an error is detected upstream by IneoQuest's FoQus platform, Conviva's complementary Intelligent Control Platform immediately identifies the audience impact. For example, when Conviva's platform detects poor viewer experience, IneoQuest identifies if a quality issue is the cause and accurately points to the problem cause and location. This partnership truly delivers the market's first complete solution that isolates where and understands why a delivery issue is happening online. This partnership empowers OTT providers with unmatched tools to deliver better consumer QoE and network QoS, resulting in more satisfied, engaged customers and reduced customer churn. Additionally, providers leveraging IneoQuest and Conviva's solutions will realize reduced operational costs through faster diagnosis and repair of issues, limiting customer service requests and inquiries. The partnership between these two market leaders establishes a foundation for future capabilities, such as seamless end-to-end correlation, unified operational and experiential reporting, as well as integrated information exchange for faster analysis. The resulting improved intelligence can help the OTT industry to achieve broadcast quality and beyond.
