TAG Video Systems and Techex Unveil Advanced Cloud Video Monitoring and Control Solution
Strategic Partnership Combines TAG Realtime Media Performance Platform with Techex tx edge Software Gateway, Revolutionizing Video Workflows with Comprehensive Monitoring and Visualization Capabilities
Tel Aviv, August 17, 2023- TAG Video Systems, the leader in software-based, IP, end-to-end monitoring, deep probing, and real time visualization solutions has partnered with Techex, a leading cloud and IP video specialist, to deliver an advanced cloud video control, monitoring, and visualisation solution to major broadcasting and media companies. This strategic collaboration combines best-of-breed solutions from two industry pioneers integrated into existing environments and capable of transporting video and monitoring streams at every point in the delivery chain. It also features a superior level of data analysis for a scalable, reliable solution offered with flexible licensing options.
tx edge by Techex is a feature-rich software gateway built to fit into Infrastructure as Code (IaC) cloud workflows. tx edge moves video into, out and around the cloud providing leading broadcasters the tight control they require delivering their most valuable live video while also collecting data related to packet arrival times at the protocol level. Integration into TAG’s Realtime Media Performance platform enhances tx edge’s ETR 290 and IP-level stream monitoring capabilities, offering a higher level of comprehensive content and probing visualization tools. Together, tx edge and TAG’s Realtime Media Performance platform support and enable flexible migration between various workflows, including hybrid, fully-cloud, or fully on-premises.
This powerful combination illustrates the benefits of interoperability by delivering an all-in-one transport, visualization, error detection, alerting, and multiviewing solution. The engine to TAG’s solution includes their cloud-capable MultiChannel Monitoring (MCM) system and enables broadcasters to visualize content flowing through tx edge instances with continuous content-level actionable and meaningful probe monitoring of over 550 events, while reducing the complexity of managing video contribution, playout, and distribution workflows. Both organizations pioneer customer-centric billing models offering perpetual capex and time-based opex models designed to accommodate broadcasters’ cloud, hybrid, and on-premises requirements. TAG’s Zer0 Friction® approach to technology and licensing removes restrictions to multi-functional applications and opens the door for customers to maximize the value of their investment and deliver the highest Quality of Experience (QoE) to the consumer.
“TAG has been a close and trusted partner for over a decade,” said Techex CEO, Richard Bailey. “We’re excited to deploy tx edge and TAG together. Many broadcasters rely on tx edge to securely protect and transport their highest value content, this provides a comprehensive visualization of the content’s journey.”
Kevin Joyce, Zero Friction Officer at TAG, added, “Both Techex and TAG Video Systems share the same goals – to empower customers with the tools they need to ensure the health of their streams, securely deliver error-free content and access their own comprehensive data for greater insight into improving their business and media operations.”
Both Techex and TAG Video Systems will be demonstrating their software at IBC 2023, with Techex on stand 3.C55 and TAG Video Systems on stand 1.C15.
