IBC this year sees Bridge Technologies in pole position on the corner of Hall 1, where the company is demonstrating its VB440 IP network probe operating in an 8K environment.

“What’s important about what we’re demonstrating at IBC isn’t that we expect anyone to need an 8K-capable network probe today – or even in the immediate future. It’s to show that the VB440 represents an entirely future-proof solution,” explains the company’s chairman, Simen Frostad. “Any customer taking delivery of a VB440 today is assured that, out of the box, it will provide support for SD, HD, 4K, and the 8K networks of the future. That will make migration easier and significantly more efficient – something we believe is truly unique in the industry.”

The demonstration at IBC of the VB440 handling 8K network traffic is, according to Frostad, a further example of the innate power and capability of the advanced IP network probe. Also being showcased is another innovation – the Widglets API HTML5 embedded video monitor for the VB440 network probe.

“Widglets enables the VB440 to become a truly multifunctional device beyond its current worldwide deployment for monitoring IP networks, extending its usefulness well beyond today’s test and measurement applications,” notes Frostad.
