Mixed Signals’ Sentry and Medius digital content monitoring solutions are being used by Bright House Networks to ensure that its programming – both in standard-definition (SD) and high-definition (HD) – is delivered to subscribers with the best possible picture and sound quality.

Bright House Networks has deployed Sentry nationwide, including in its Florida cable systems serving Orlando and Tampa, and in its systems serving Indianapolis, Ind.; Birmingham, Ala.; Bakersfield, Calif.; and other markets. 

The Sentry closely monitors each program at the MPEG, IP and quality levels, enabling issues to be resolved before subscribers are affected. Bright House will also use the Sentry to monitor digital ad insertions and data carousels.

Bright House is also using Mixed Signals’ Medius remote monitoring and management system to control all of the Sentrys from a central location. With Medius, operators can monitor each Sentry in a particular cable system.

Mixed Signals is demonstrating its Sentry Edge this week at the Cable-Tec Expo in Philadelphia (story here).
