Bridge Technologies’ Gold TS Protection Wins NewBay Media’s Best of Show Award 2015

Gold TS Protection, Bridge Technologies’ radical system for more accurate digital media monitoring received one of the industry’s most prestigious technology honors at NAB 2015 – NewBay Media’s Best of Show Award, presented by TV Technology magazine.

Making its debut at NAB, Gold TS Protection is a new technology that makes monitoring for digital services quicker to set up and fault-tracking much faster, more accurate and secure. Developed exclusively by Bridge Technologies, Gold TS Protection includes all the checks specified in the ETR290 standard, but goes much further to include testing for critical conditions missed by ETR290.

Conditions like failures of the conditional access system, errors in the program guide, and unintended language changes seriously affect subscribers, but standard monitoring systems based only on ETR290 do not raise any alert for these conditions. Services protected by Gold TS Protection catch these ‘ETR290-legal’ errors and provide a much more valuable real-world quality assurance for operators of digital media services.

“We are enormously proud of our Best of Show recipients,” says NewBay Media Broadcast & Video Group Vice President & Group Publisher Eric Trabb.

“Recognition with an award at the NAB Show from NewBay Media’s Broadcast & Video Group is a strong vote of confidence and admiration from our leading industry publications.”

NewBay Media’s Best of Show Awards are evaluated by a panel of engineers and industry experts, and are selected based on innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry. Only a small number of products were chosen for NewBay Media’s Best of Show Award from among hundreds of new products in competition.

Receiving the Newbay Best of Show Award, Bridge Technologies’ Chairman Simen Frostad said: “Gold TS Protection is based on a simple idea, and replacing complexity with simplicity is our goal as a manufacturer. The simplicity makes it far more efficient to use than conventional technology, and it provides a much more accurate and comprehensive monitoring safety-net which catches those error conditions that are beyond the scope of ETR290.”
