Remote Monitoring & Streaming Solution

Product ManualManual

Evertz® 160RM Remote Monitoring System offers a reliable way to monitor remote sites from a central location. Customers of the 160RM products include Cable, IPTV and Satellite Head Ends. The challenge they face is determining the quality of service at the edges of their network where they don't have any means of viewing their content. The 160RM solves this challenge by offering a simple way to stream the audio/video of any channel on the network back via IP.

The 160RM Platform

The 160RM is outfitted with the ability to easily interface with a consumer STB using standard connectors and an IR interface to replicate the "remote" control of the STB. The IR interface offers a simple way to manually select a channel or scan through hundreds of channels looking for problems. The control protocols for the STB can be learned by the 160RM and can include advanced control such as special menus and VOD services.

The 160RM employs technology from Evertz® extensive and award winning broadcast monitoring family which includes MVP® and VIP™. By utilizing the same industry proven technologies with more than 20,000 installs worldwide, the 160RM is the most advanced and most comprehensive remote monitoring solution available.
