MTD Prodigy monitoring digital cinema systems

Digital Cinema


"When it comes to D-Cinema distribution, reliability is key to our business..."




Distribution of content for Digital Cinema poses a unique challenge: transmit huge media files out to remote servers and confirm that it arrives error-free for viewing on thousands of screens. Most network monitoring systems have two main shortcomings in this regard:

  • Polling thousands of devices can cause latency in status reporting, preventing NOC personnel from recognizing a problem until its too late.
  • Most systems lack the ability to track or verify media.

MTD Prodigy overcomes these problems, currently monitoring thousands of D-Cinema locations. Using massively parallel processing, the status of uplink and receive sites is kept current, while the content management tools monitor the media transfer and content integrity once received.
