Witbe to showcase latest technology at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2022

At SCTE® Cable-Tec Expo® 2022, Witbe will be showcasing its latest technology for automated testing and proactive monitoring.

This will range from the company’s newly updated Remote Eye Controller (REC) application to its complete lineup of Witbox products and everything in between.

In Philadelphia, Witbe will demonstrate how its technology allows streaming video providers to measure and improve the Quality of Experience (QoE) their customers receive.

“We are thrilled to be in Philly for SCTE 2022,” said Mathieu Planche, CEO of Witbe. “Our automated testing and proactive monitoring technology has helped the cable industry around the globe for over 20 years.

“At SCTE 2022, we’ll be showing how our latest software and hardware helps deliver better streaming video QoE for customers watching at home.”

At SCTE 2022, Witbe will continue to focus on the many ways the company’s technology can help streaming video companies and digital service providers. Some of the most popular use cases for Witbe’s technology include:

• Remote Device Access: Teams can remotely access their test devices from anywhere in the world, removing the need for engineers to travel thousands of miles to test specific devices in the field.

• QA Test Automation: Witbe’s automated testing can run simultaneous tests 24/7 without ever needing a break, allowing Quality Assurance (QA) teams to cover the endurance, stress, and performance testing that cannot be performed manually.

• Video Service Monitoring: Video operations teams receive real-time alerts whenever their video stream quality dips or gets interrupted. The alerts even include video traces to quickly identify the issue.

• VOD Asset Checking: Witbe’s technology can help content providers by testing that every asset in their video on demand (VOD) library is available and can be watched on any device and platform with all the intended features, including different audio tracks or subtitles.

Witbe Highlights at SCTE 2022 will include:

The REC hits the web

At SCTE 2022, Witbe will highlight the latest version of its popular REC application. While REC has previously enabled teams to access and control their test devices from anywhere in the world, it required a computer application.

This new version, now running on any modern web browser, bolsters these capabilities by allowing users to control their devices on laptops, smartphones, tablets, and more.

It also builds on previous versions with improved latency, a stronger search, and native full-screen and picture-in-picture modes. The web REC is the perfect option for remote teams testing on the go.

The complete Witbox family

Witbe’s Witbox houses the company’s automated testing and monitoring technology in a compact, accessible package that couldn’t be easier to set up.

The complete lineup of Witbox products will be on display at SCTE 2022, which includes the original WitboxOne for video streaming testing, the powerful Witbox+ for large team scalability, and the focused WitboxNet for web testing.

Witbe Cloud solutions

Witbe will present its lineup of Witbe Cloud products at SCTE 2022. Witbe Cloud delivers all the power users expect from Witbe’s technology without the need for extra counter or rack space.

With Witbe Cloud, companies enjoy dedicated, secure remote access to any physical testing device deployed wherever needed. With Witbe Cloud OnDemand, users can even rent access to the same testing and monitoring technology for short periods of time.
