The V-Factor Source Monitor 150, the latest edition to Cheetah Technologies’ V-Factor Source Monitors, can process and monitor three times more on the network than previous versions, allowing cable operators to analyze as many as 12 HDTV channels simultaneously. ? ?

V-Factor SM automates such manual tasks as video equipment qualification or competitive analysis between existing video services. It’s also green: With its ability to view more channels at once, the energy used on the network is decreased. ? 

The increase in simultaneous channel monitoring, Cheetah adds, also enables operators to monitor video ingest on hundreds of critical video streams without taking up rack space and power.

“V-Factor technology is a hybrid between deep packet inspection (DPI) and deep content inspection (DCI), which Cheetah believes is essential to ensuring accurate root cause analysis for video service providers,” notes Steve Day, senior vice president/Marketing and Strategic Planning. “However, monitoring video streams with this level of detail has never been trivial. Our former product line analysis capability was two HDTV channels per appliance due to the complexities of reviewing every pixel of the video stream in real time.”?
