Mixed Signals Announces Addition of Medius(TM) to Product Suite
Enable remote and consolidated administration support for up to 15 Mixed Signals Sentry Digital Content Monitors
KEYSTONE, Colo., Aug. 8 // -- CableLabs Summer Market Conference -- Mixed Signals, Inc., leading providers of digital content monitoring systems, today announced the availability of a new product--Medius--to its product suite. For large systems which require a greater number of Sentry units to support their networks, Medius makes advanced monitoring easy to deploy and minimizes administration effort. With Medius, Mixed Signals' customers have access to features such as remote alarm management, an ETR 290 "dashboard" display, visual drilldown displays for alert notification and activity detail down to the individual PID and MPEG table level.
Building on successful deployments of Sentry, Mixed Signals identified the need for Medius. The product is essential for supporting larger systems that have significant monitoring needs. It will also allow operators to produce management reports on the efficiency of their entire system. In an effort to simplify large scale monitoring, Medius will allow for the aggregation and correlation of reports from multiple locations.
"Mixed Signals is constantly striving to expand upon our product line and support our customer needs," stated Eric Conley, CEO of Mixed Signals. "Today, monitoring is a necessity, and Mixed Signals has the most advanced, scalable, and cost-effective approach in the industry. We are reducing operational costs and lost revenue opportunities for our customers. The better technology we build for them, the more we can ultimately improve our customers' subscriber experience."
Medius will provide a centralized console for operators to communicate with all remote Sentrys.
Key benefits of Medius include:
o Configuration of any Sentry Digital Content Monitor on the network,
including program grouping and mapping, port names, carousel settings,
digital ad insertion, multicast groups and system settings;
o Convenient access to remotely monitor and manage Sentry(s);
o "Dashboard" view to provide an alert summary, aggregating alerts from
various Sentry units across the network and allowing users to
immediately focus on and address individual problem areas;
o "Alert Console" allows users to create and configure individual,
grouped, or global alerts that apply to Sentry units on the network; and
o Ability to group any channels or programs with the same or similar
characteristics (by connection, location, nature of programs, audio
only, etc.) across different Sentry units to more easily identify and
troubleshoot issues and better understand operational inefficiencies.
Mixed Signals will demonstrate Medius at The CableLabs Summer Conference, August 6 thru August 9, 2006 in Keystone, Colorado.
