BMG by Providius on Display at IBC 2023!

With BMG Broadcast Media Guard by Providius, acquire, decode, and analyze a variety of media flows (uncompressed & compressed) concurrently across multiple high-capacity IP interfaces.

This high density analysis platform provides 24/7 real-time monitoring as well as simultaneous decoding and monitoring of multiple media types. It also features precision network packet timing analysis, NMOS IS-04/IS-05 support (for network discovery and patch management), and VM or bare metal deployments assessment.

IP Media Analysis & Visualization

  • Simplify complex packet & timing analysis with user-selectable apps.
  • Detect issues including packet loss, delay, and jitter

Concurrent IP Service Analysis

  • Acquire, decode, and analyze a wide variety of uncompressed & compressed media flows across multiple IP interfaces concurrently.
  • Detect & confirm compliance metrics (captions and SCTE 35/104 commercial insertion triggers).
  • Simultaneously support multiple 100Gbps network interfaces.
  • Continuously monitor up to 30 uncompressed services (ST2022, ST2110) or 100 compressed services (MPEG2, H.264, HEVC, HLS) at the same time.Providius_BMG_Concurrent-IP-Service-Analysis_TEVIOS

PTP Network Monitoring

  • Enjoy disruption-free operation thanks to an overview of all PTP clocks on the network (identity, stability, and dependents).
  • Identify active grandmaster clock plus detect changes and/or disruptions to PTP.

Real-time Analysis & Monitoring

  • Say hello to 24/7 “eyes and ears” on your media network.
  • Ensure that content is delivered at the highest quality, free of errors/disruptions.
  • Real-time event notifications delivered to external platforms as necessary.


Monitoring and Logging

  • Detect user-customizable impairments for each media service: audio & video essence freeze, black, and loudness.
  • Track and catalog errors over a long period of time with big data storage in order to characterize overall performance and availability per stream.

Providius will be showcasing their BMG IP media analysis platform alongside their network telemetry software at IBC 2023 (15 – 18 September, RAI Amsterdam) on stand 11.B05.

Monitoring by Exception “Penalty Box” Feature for BMG by Providius

One of the key features of the BMG Broadcast Media Guard by Providius is 24/7 real-time monitoring, specifically its capability of monitoring by exception.

Monitoring by exception makes it possible to monitor configurable IP media-specific thresholds. This includes audio/video compliance such as loudness levels and signal loss (frozen/black video).

Additionally, identify IP-related errors including:

  • ST 2110 RTP transport disruptions
  • MEPG TS errors using ETR 101 290
  • HLS structure


Monitor multiple concurrent media streams on the network with BMG. And with its monitoring by exception “Penalty Box” feature, easily identify only those streams that don’t meet the defined thresholds.

Penalty box/monitoring by exception & analysis are important applications for the media stream analyzer by Providius.

Presenting the BMG Media Stream Analyzer by Providius

The Broadcast Monitoring Gateway (BMG) by Providius is a high density analysis platform – the 24/7 eyes & ears of both video service and delivery network.

Acquire, decode, and analyze a wide variety of media flows across multiple high-capacity IP interfaces (up to 100Gb/s) including:

  • Uncompressed Production Formats SMPTE 2110 (all parts), 2022-6/-7
  • Compressed Formats MPEG-2 TS, H.264, HEVC, JXS, NDI*
  • Audio Formats MP1-L1, AAC, HE-AAC, A-52, AES67, RAVENNA
  • OTT/ABR Formats HLS


As Providius explains, the BMG “incorporates the essential analysis and decoding processing necessary to alert the operation tiers of service and packet transport related impairments for production, linear and adaptive bitrate (ABR) defined services.” Packets are processed for service compliance while analyzing the conditions of the delivery network. This dual-focused analysis approach provides a clear demarcation between video delivery and video processing. It drastically reduces the mean time to repair (MTTR), eliminating finger-pointing between transport and processing departments.

Features & Benefits

  • Precision software analysis
  • Monitor multiple media types simultaneously
  • Monitoring by exception & mosaic
  • Runs of COTS/VM compute platforms
  • Remote access client stations
  • Control system integration / NMOS
