Qligent, the provider of cloud-based media delivery quality assurance solutions, is returning to the upcoming NAB Show with a product update, promising its users “a more efficient and economical monitoring and analysis platform.”

Qligent’s Vision 5 software release is based on a cloud-native microservices framework that allows a media organization to better serve distributed architectures for broadcast, cable, satellite and OTT/streaming networks.

Qligent developed Vision 5 to address the need for deeper end-to-end monitoring of next generation broadcast and MVPD networks, providing greater visibility across the entire media supply chain. Vision 5 uses a microservices approach that allows enterprise-level businesses to target core media services, including QoE/QoS/compliance monitoring, for specific media workflows, audiences and/or subscribers.

This, the company says, is especially helpful for broadcasters and MVPDs as they transition to remotely operated hybrid network models.

Qligent CEO Brick Eksten commented, “The microservices approach utilized in Vision 5 helps our customers as they move to hybrid networks, allowing them to scale on demand using cloud-native tools for both cloud/ground networks or the new linear networks that utilize OTT distribution and linear at the edge approaches. Vision 5 allows customers to use the same tools they use for managing the cloud or other high scale networks to conveniently deploy Vision as highly performant microservices, avoiding the forklift virtualization approach used in other systems. Vision 5 further integrates into the customer network by leveraging open standards and exposing modern APIs that the customer can utilize directly for deployment and monitoring of the network, allowing Vision to act as a central analytics, alarming and notification tool. This brings the monitoring by exception toolset to a truly enterprise scale. That same framework is designed with large, distributed architectures in mind, making it easier and more affordable to scale Vision networks to serve new locations.”

Vision 5 also offers a comprehensive monitoring and analysis solution for ATSC 1.0 and ATSC 3.0 signals. The Vision 5 release also builds in a detailed analytics platform to help users access underlying information on performance across the media supply chain through to the delivery point.


Qligent will show Vision 5 in Meeting Room W2079 (West Hall, Las Vegas Convention Center) at NAB Show 2024 from April 14-16.
