Cheetah Technologies has bolstered its video quality monitoring with the introduction of its V-Factor Stream Probe Advanced (VF-SPa) solution, providing cable system operators with monitoring of both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 video streams.

The enhanced VF-SPa platform, version 4.11, has been designed to extend the capabilities of Cheetah’s “Intelligent Decode” technology to MPEG-4, and offers event-based monitoring and network topology features designed to equip operators with new tools to quickly identify and isolate the origin of video issues with the highest impact to subscribers.

Introduced for MPEG-2 services earlier this year, Cheetah’s Intelligent Decode technology now enables cable operators to measure MPEG-4 video as it leaves the headend for blockiness, black screen, video freeze and jerkiness.
