The VB440 dual 40 Gigabit Ethernet IP probe, which typically monitors high-bitrate IP media traffic in core broadcasting networks, production studios, outside broadcast and master control centres, enabling users to quickly rectify problems and maximise Quality of Service (QoS). It is unique in its ability to support dual 40 Gigabit interfaces – giving it analysis of redundant networks capability – and in its support of uncompressed media over IP with full ST2110 and ST2022-6, providing network operators and digital media organisations with an analytics solution for large amounts of streams of streams and multiple technologies in real-time and in parallel. With the included dual Instrument View option it provides uncompressed video and audio analytics from 270MBit to 12GigaBit with packet accuracy in the sub microsecond range. With additional Instrument View licenses, up to 8 simultaneous clients can view analytics data either in a standard web browser or with the optional Instrument View aluminium kits, with form-factors built specifically for the production industry.


Bridge Technologies options are designed to enhance the overall ability and performance of accurate monitoring in the broadcast environment

  • Overview

    The VB440 is also the first product to feature SMPTE 2022.7 dual redundant stream analysis as an extension of its support for uncompressed media; SMPTE 2110, 2022-6, 2022-7, RFC 4175 and AES67. The VB440 is designed for the full cross-section of services commonly found in media-related network operations. It is a multi-use tool to monitor network performance involving signal formats and areas as diverse as video IP multicast/unicast, Ethernet packet micro bursts, PCAP recording and general traffic protocol inspection.

    Developed for broadcast studio deployment, the VB440 appliance can be installed rapidly in any rack enabled environment. Through its EII (External Integration Interface) the VB440 can also be integrated with any third-party management and data systems.
