Witbe to Launch Quality Monitoring Robot at IBC
Paris-based quality-monitoring company Witbe has announced that it will debut its latest robot at IBC in Amsterdam, which takes place September 13 to 17. Witbe's quality monitoring robots test devices such as set-top boxes, smartphones, tablets, game consoles, and connected TVs by replicating the actions of end-users. The robots allow service providers, content owners, and device makers to automate testing for new apps or devices before putting them on the market. Customers also use the robots to test the quality of live or on-demand video delivery to fixed or mobile clients.
This latest release, the Witbe 4402 Video Quality Monitoring Robot, is a rackable appliance meant for use in datacenters and test labs. Witbe says it can run tests on eight standard-definition or high-definition devices at one time. The idea is that the engineers conducting the tests will be able to do more cross-platform testing in less time, thus speeding up the product release cycle.
“Witbe’s new 4402 Video Monitoring Robot leverages the award-winning technology and expertise we have built over the years to help service providers and content owners accelerate innovation and gain tighter control on their video delivery chains so they can deliver the promises of multiscreen services,” says Jean-Michel Planche, Witbe’s president and co-founder.
Founded in 2000, Witbe has offices in Paris, New York, Montreal, Singapore, and Sao Paulo. While the 4402 robot will be introduced at IBC, it's available now for Witbe's customers.
