BroadcastAsia 2024 Exhibitor Preview
May 29-31
Singapore Expo
Booth 6F1-12

At BroadcastAsia 2024, part of the Asia Tech x Singapore (ATxSG) 2024 event, taking place May 29-31 in Singapore, Witbe will showcase its powerful automated testing and proactive monitoring technology. The company will demonstrate the benefits of its hardware and software solutions for streaming and broadband video service providers looking to measure their customers’ true quality of experience. A key highlight at the company’s BroadcastAsia 2024 stand (6F1-12) will be Witbe’s unique Ad Monitoring and Matching technology, which helps providers verify streaming errors caused by dynamic ad insertion.

“We’re very excited to bring Witbe’s latest automated testing innovations to BroadcastAsia 2024,” said Marie-Véronique Lacaze, president and co-founder of Witbe. “Our Singapore team will be at the show in full force, sharing our new Ad Monitoring and Matching technology with teams who are seeing the major impact of streaming ad errors on their services. The technology is part of our continued commitment to measuring true video performance on real devices and will help our customers take their ad monitoring to new levels.”

Ad Monitoring and Matching Technology
Witbe’s Ad Monitoring and Matching technology helps providers identify streaming errors caused by dynamic ad insertion, commonly used with the rise of Free Ad-Supported Television (FAST) channels. Witbe tests and monitors real, physical devices to measure the true ad performance that viewers receive. Service providers receive accurate reports on the most important key performance indicators (KPIs) for their video service, including critical ad errors such as black screens, excessive buffering, audio cuts, crashed streams, and issues when returning to the main content.

All of Witbe’s technology comes with shared video recordings, which can be used as proof of ad delivery for third-party advertisers. The company’s Ad Matching feature can then verify when an ad played throughout a stream, how it performed, and if it played repeatedly in a single ad break. Witbe’s Ad Monitoring and Matching technology is capable of testing FAST channels and all other forms of ad-supported video, including AVOD services and sports streaming, and is available now.

The bundles include a Witbox, the company’s hardware that allows video service providers to test any existing real device easily and directly, along with a Witbe Hub Cloud to work remotely, and a set number of standardized test scenarios.

ABR Stream Analysis Technology
Witbe’s new ABR Stream Analysis technology enhances the monitoring capabilities of the company’s powerful Witbox+, offering service providers additional data on how their viewers’ experiences are affected by the adaptive bitrate (ABR) stream. The recently announced technology is available as a software addition to the Witbox+ or as a separate dedicated device in the WitboxABR. The WitboxABR allows teams to perform their network tests at scale, along with monitoring for CDN errors and SCTE-35 ad cues.
