VITEC Deploys iTrinegy’s NE-ONE to Optimize IP Encoder-Decoder Performance Over Networks for a Better Viewer Experience

LONDON, U.K. -- IBC Amsterdam -- iTrinegy, leading providers of Software Defined Virtual Test Networks, are pleased to announce that VITEC, a prominent worldwide end-to-end video streaming solutions provider for broadcast, military and government, enterprise, sports and entertainment venues, has selected iTrinegy's NE-ONE Network Emulator to enhance their IP Encoder/Decoder testing capability.

Combining broadcasting with live streaming capabilities, VITEC's H.265 (HEVC) and H.264 offering is the most extensive in the market with encoding and decoding appliances, IPTV solutions for desktops and mobile devices, and PCI cards with SDK for integration projects.

Wishing to ensure their solutions continued to meet and ideally exceed customers' expectations, VITEC looked to deploy network emulation technology to enhance their QA and testing procedures by enabling them to create a virtual test network in which to verify the resilience of its products to lossy IP transmission links such as The Internet or Satellite.

iTrinegy's NE-ONE Network Emulator helps VITEC achieve this objective by reproducing, within the lab, a comprehensive range of network types and manipulating characteristics such as Packet Loss, Network Jitter (Packet Delay Variation), Packet Corruption, Packet Duplication and Packet Reordering in order to stress test media content transmissions.

Using the NE-ONE VITEC are able to:
* Test transport protection technology and error correction algorithms for video, audio and metadata transmission
* Test and validate VITEC products that integrate these transport protocols and algorithms
* Reproduce their clients' use cases: simulating their own network conditions (The Internet, Satellite, RF,...) in order to enhance incident management and accelerate resolution times.

Included in VITEC's selection criteria when choosing an appropriate network emulator was ease-of-use and test automation and the NE-ONE Model 20, offering both the ability to quickly select pre-defined network environments and the capability to perform automatic regression testing by utilizing the built-in scripting / command line functionality, have helped VITEC achieve significant time saving during their testing procedures.

However, when asked what the major benefit of using the NE-ONE is, Richard Bernard, Senior Product Manager, VITEC commented that, "The iTrinegy solution helps us deliver optimized IP encoding and decoding solutions to the market. Ultimately, it assures our customers that VITEC products are very effective in lossy IP networks, giving them the confidence to deploy VITEC technology into their streaming environments."

iTrinegy Director, Graham Wood responded, "We are delighted to have VITEC as a new customer using our NE-ONE product. They join a significant number of broadcast and media sector organizations that recognize the value of being able to easily configure and deploy a wide range of networks and network conditions, within their test labs."

Wood adds, "The success of any broadcast or streaming service is ultimately defined by the perceived user experience. So having the ability to quickly identify and mitigate network-related issues both during development and test, ensures broadcast and streaming media providers enhance their ability to deliver the best viewer experience possible."

Ubisoft’s Future Games of London deploys iTrinegy’s NE-ONE to improve online player experience testing

LONDON, U.K. -- iTrinegy, leading providers of Software Defined Virtual Test Networks, are pleased to announce that Ubisoft Studio - Future Games of London, the developer and publisher of the highly popular Hungry Shark mobile games, has become the latest studio to deploy iTrinegy's NE-ONE Network Emulator to enhance their games performance testing capability.

As owners of a brand that entertains hundreds of millions of players worldwide, Future Games of London (FGOL) already recognized the necessity of providing a good online experience for their players in network conditions found around the globe. In partnering with iTrinegy, FGOL saw an opportunity to simulate a much broader range of network conditions; enhancing the testing process in place and so enriching player experience.

To address these issues, FGOL has selected iTrinegy's NE-ONE Network Emulator Model 20 which enables the studio to test games performance and online player experience over 20 different network configurations simultaneously, in a fully controllable virtual test network environment. Its built-in Network Scenario Builder also allows their Quality Control team to combine a range of different network experiences over a timeline in order to build test scenarios that more realistically reflect the real-world network conditions likely to be encountered when playing the game.

FGOL Technical Director, Peter Hodges commented, "The standout feature for the NE-ONE for me is it's easily accessible to my team; we can use the emulator without needing a network engineering background to recreate different network conditions. We might say the NE-ONE lives up to its name as anyone can use it. Now we are able to create our testing scenarios in a very fluid way that reduces the overall bug fixing cycle, saving us time and improving game quality. There is every reason to be content with the progress made so far".

iTrinegy Director, Graham Wood responded, "We are delighted to welcome Future Games of London as a new customer of our NE-ONE product range. They join a growing band of games studios that are recognizing the value of being able to easily recreate a wide range of network conditions, on demand, within their test labs. The success of any game is ultimately down to its playability and the ability to quickly identify and resolve network-related issues during development and test will ensure their players enjoy a positive online experience."
