ORION™-OTT | ORION Central Manager

ORION Central Manager (OCM) provides enterprise-wide visibility by enabling central management of multiple ORION Linear and ORION-OTT setups present at the same or diverse geographic locations. Interra Systems’ OCM is the only comprehensive web-based enterprise level solution that centrally monitors the health of probes, collects monitoring data from probes, and provides global alert summary across probes to operators for both broadcast and OTT services.

Based on a distributed architecture, where probes can be deployed at multiple points in the workflow, including the origin server, CDN, or at the edge, OCM increases flexibility and ensures efficient bandwidth management for operators by providing the most accurate depiction of quality of experience (QoE monitoring) and quality of service (qoS monitoring).

As content is routed through many systems such as encoders, transcoders, origin servers, and CDNs, OCM helps in error isolation and correlation by aggregating alerts from multiple linear and OTT probes in a broadcast workflow at a single location. OCM is able to provide alerts, along with video and audio quality tracking and scoring at any point, for any content.
