Overview: VistaLINK® • Monitoring & Control for all Applications
Root Cause Analysis:
New root cause analysis features within VistaLINK® PRO allow users to zero in on a fault causes and suppress needless downstream fault alarms. Through the addition of the optional system Root Cause Analysis plug-in (+RCA) the VistaLINK® PRO system allows users to define logical and ordered hardware Service groupings. Once these groupings are defined the VistaLINK® PRO system will correlate alarms coming from multiple devices within a Service, determine the root cause alarm and suppress from operations view any fault alarms that are a result of upstream errors. The root cause analysis feature includes adjustable correlation timing windows for customizable setup according to the application.
Root Cause Analysis assists with focusing operations staff on the root cause of a problem and suppresses faults or information that is simply present due to an upstream fault alarm. Root Cause Analysis speeds operator fault diagnosis, focuses the operators view on real problem areas and reduces overall Mean Time To Repair (MTTR).
Simplify Complex Control and Monitoring:
By better managing and maintaining the output quality and consistency of a broadcast service the benefit of a quality monitoring and control system is realized. VistaLINK® PRO allows operators the ability to rapidly diagnose and correct system faults. VistaLINK® PRO provides intuitive easy to understand interfaces for even the most complex broadcast systems, focusing the operator on the root cause of a problem or fault and thus reducing OPEX.
Monitoring By Exception (MBE):
By using Evertz multi-input monitoring electronics, VistaLINK® PRO can provide a monitored by exception environment. Keying operators to real faults and not requiring unnecessary maintenance of good channels increases the operators efficiency. Evertz multi-viewer display systems can be configured to work in unison with VistaLINK® PRO fault detection to provide dynamically updated signal fault QC stations and signal display. Operators can focus on a specific fault (Penalty Box) display that is dynamically updated with faulting video/audio signals when VistaLINK® PRO detects errors.

Effective, simple-to-use graphics, unparalleled drill down information, external notification tools and a network efficient SNMP monitoring & configuration architecture - VistaLINK® PRO PLUS provides you with all of the details!
VistaLINK® PRO PLUS (Graphics Client)
Building on top of standard VistaLINK® PRO configuration clients, add user-configurable graphical representations of your broadcast facility - local and remote. Start with global perspectives and drill down to specific rack and frame layouts or consolidate important status information and direct configuration control on a single display.
Import facility block diagrams or generate an off-line simulation using virtual equipment and graphics from the VistaLINK® media library. Link multiple views for the most effective facility or application presentation. Integrate your VistaLINK® PRO PLUS graphic screens with a VIP™ or MVP® and get the best of both on-screen signal display and network monitoring & configuration. All graphics page design tools are included with the application and users can easily design new graphical layouts using initiative windows like drag and drop design tools. No special programming or scripting language knowledge is required.
The VistaLINK® PRO-PLUS graphical client system allows limitless graphical dashboard interface screens to be designed and linked together to provide an enterprise level graphical network monitoring solution. Graphical NMS monitoring pages expose device and signal faults better and provide faster visual fault impact and cause analysis.
In today's high signal count and complex broadcast environments, the VistaLINK® PRO-PLUS graphical clients allows systems to be presented to front end operations staff in a meaningful and graphically representative fashion providing easier system fault diagnosis and faster Mean Time To Repair (MTTR).
