As the trend and demand for multiscreen viewing and TV Everywhere or Over-The-Top (OTT) continues to grow, so does the demand for a high quality of experience with the best content on any device and at any time. Behind that multiscreen experience lies some very complex adaptive bit rate (ABR) technology and a new set of monitoring challenges.
