TAG Video Systems and VidOvation Announce Technology Partnership

Companies team to bring IP solutions to clients across USA

Tel Aviv – April 16, 2020 — TAG Video Systems, the world leader in 100% SW, 100% IP, 100% COTS Probing, Monitoring, and Multiviewing solutions, and VidOvation, a major technology and systems integrator, have announced a technology partnership aimed at bringing the most advanced solutions and support to clients navigating the transformation to IP workflows. Kevin Joyce, TAG’s Zer0 Friction Officer, revealed details of the agreement from the company’s world R&D headquarters in Tel Aviv.

"The acceleration to 100% COTS/Cloud IP workflows has significantly increased the demand for TAG’s Video Solutions. With the launch of our Zer0 Friction strategy, we need partners that understand and support IP workflows more than ever," said Joyce. "Jim Jachetta and his team of IP workflow experts at VidOvation are the perfect partners at the perfect time. Together, we will provide our clients with the foundation and support they need to transition to IP, which is the ideal infrastructure for a remote work environment."

According to Jachetta, EVP of Engineering and CTO, VidOvation; "VidOvation is excited to integrate TAG Video Systems’ IP monitoring, probing, and Multiviewer technology into our customers’ workflows and ecosystems, giving them the ability to monitor and troubleshoot complex IP production, contribution, OTT, and distribution workflows at any point in their systems. TAG solutions will also give our customers the capabilities they need to probe and diagnose the implementation of at-home remote production, transport over managed and unmanaged networks such as the public Internet and cellular for contribution, and then achieve the same visibility for OTT, CDN, and distribution."

Added Jachetta; "In addition, TAG will help our customers overcome the challenges that exist in enterprise IPTV systems where Verimatrix digital rights management and encryption is mandatory. TAG can help probe and troubleshoot any network issues that could impede the flow and distribution of live video, consequently keeping IPTV systems within legal parameters."
