VideoBridge System Monitoring Server

VideoBridge Diagram
Part Number: VBC

The Sencore controller (VBC) is a server application, its main purpose being to offer central control and management of all Sencore devices. The VBC gives unprecedented insight into network health and the flow of media streams. Key elements in the VBC are: configuration management, stream status monitoring, service status monitoring, 4-day historical data-display with the Microtimeline technology, SNMP multi-destination trap forwarding, alarm logging and PDF report generation. The users connect to the server by using a standard web browser as the client.
The VBC controller software is deployed in a Linux server environment offering powerful and standardized network access techniques such as SSH, telnet, FTP, XML, HTTP and SNMP. The VBC collects summarized data from probes and presents alarms filtered by user selectable thresholds and aggregation times, thus providing the high-level overview needed in a large system while still allowing drill-down for detailed alarm and measurement information.
