ORLANDO, Fla. -- Tektronix, an industry-leading innovator of video quality monitoring solutions, announced here today at Cable-Tec Expo, that the new 10 Gigabit interfaces of its upgraded Sentry® and Sentry Verify make them the industry's first real-time video quality monitors capable of comprehensively monitoring up to 3 Gbps of video programming, enabling cable operators and other video service providers (VSP) to quickly identify and diagnose video and audio errors in the 10 Gigabit portions of their networks.

Before the addition of 10 Gigabit interfaces to Sentry and Sentry Verify, the only products suitable for 10 Gigabit networks offered very basic monitoring capabilities, such as noting packet loss, which by itself is not a reliable indicator of quality problems. In addition to combining 10 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces with the industry-leading ability to continuously monitor 3 Gbps of programming content, Sentry incorporates advanced Quality of Experience (QoE) monitoring capabilities that are complemented by Sentry Verify's Quality of Service (QoS) monitoring abilities. Individually or working as part of a comprehensive solution, Sentry and Sentry Verify give VSPs much greater insight into the content, enabling the identification and diagnosis of video and audio errors that can impact viewers' quality of QoE.

"These upgrades to Sentry and Sentry Verify are the latest examples of our listening to our customers and developing the specific solutions they need to ensure the best possible video and audio quality for their viewers," said Eben Jenkins, general manager, Video Product Line, Tektronix. "The advanced monitoring capabilities of Sentry and Sentry Verify provide cable operators and other VSPs with the unprecedented wealth of information they need to deliver digital video services with optimum quality on a 10 Gigabit network."
