BRIDGE Technologies

Bridge Technologies provide a full end-to-end comprehensive range of products covering all the monitoring and analysis needs of the broadcast and telecommunication industries. The product range enables faster commercial growth of projects as well as engineering confidence in delivery on both traditional broadcast networks and in IP infrastructures or any combination of both.


VB12-RF PORTABLE BROADCAST PROBE covers all the monitoring needs encountered in hybrid IP and RF networks, be it QAM or VSB. In particular the factory-fitted QAM input front end option offers the service technician a must-have compact and practical tool for fault seeking in any modern cable-TV infrastructure.
VB20 PROBE is a high-end, portable measuring unit ideal for inspecting broadcast services as found in the distribution core of IPTV networks or hybrid transmission networks with IP transport cores. Up to 260 streams can be monitored in parallel by one VB20. The unit comes with the choice of electrical or optical GigE, separate management port and an ASI input for legacy signals.

VB120 BROADCAST PROBE is a realtime monitoring platform with applications in any network where digital video is carried across IP infrastructure. Built specifically to industry needs, this network service tool is ideal for both pure IPTV networks and hybrid networks with IP transport cores such as digital cable and terrestrial networks where it is used as a controller for the various RF interface cards.

VB220 PROBE is the high-end monitoring solution with up to 780 streams continuously monitored in a 1RU chassis. With an intelligent backplane facilitating inter module communication and built to carrier-grade specifications, the VB220 is designed for ultra-long lifecycle deployments, providing the industry´s best cost/performance ratio. The VB220 is also used as a controller for the complete range of RF interface cards.


VB330 PROBE is the flagship in Bridge Technologies product range. Equipped with up to two 10G Ethernet inputs it is capable of monitoring thousands of streams in backbone networks and central head-ends. The VB330 utilises the same visual and intuitive approach to monitoring and analytics as other probes.



VB280 CONTENT EXTRACTOR offers thumbnail decoding and metadata extraction from up to 100 broadcast multicast streams with either MPEG2 or MPEG4 encoding. The VB280 CONTENT EXTRACTOR is designed to give alarms on any descrambling or decoding failures at the head-end before ingress into the network and for at-a-glance monitoring remotely via any standard web browser. Typically inserted before scrambling insert in the HeadEnd and feed to the VBC server.

microVB™ is a breakthrough in both form-factor and functionality for real-time analysis of customer home network performance. This unobtrusive device provides deep packet inspection and end-to-end visibility in broadcast quality media delivery over any IP based infrastructure including OTT media in unmanaged networks.
