Test & Measurement in a Multiscreen World

The provision of any service/anywhere presents test and measurement challenges for cable operators that mix the old and the new. In this webinar, the first of two focusing on test and measurement in July, we examine how operators can ensure that their multiscreen service rollouts proceed smoothly and maintain the expected quality of experience. You’ll hear recommendations specific to the latest adaptive bit rate (ABR) and encoder boundary point (EBP) specifications, particularly around alignment and drift, as well as recommendations for packaging files together for testing of alignment prior to origin.  You’ll also discover the important role RF test continues to play in premises certification, leakage and ingress detection, and avoiding interference among the subscribers’ various devices.
