Software Provides Real-Time Service Quality Monitoring and Diagnostics For Packet-Based Streaming Video and Video Conferencing - Technology Demonstrated At Spring VON

SUWANEE, Georgia - March 1, 2005 - Telchemy,® Incorporated, the global leader in VoIP Fault and Performance Management technology, today announced a new Video Module for it's widely deployed VQmon® family of call quality monitoring and analysis software. The VQmon/SA-VM (Video Module) adds real time monitoring and diagnostics for streaming video and next generation video conferencing applications to Telchemy's VQmon®/SA (Stream Analysis) product.

Specifically, the new module supports the analysis of ISO MPEG standards and ITU H.26x video Codecs and features Video Transmission Quality Metrics (V factor) and Video Quality Scores (VQS) in addition to the core VQmon/SA metrics.

"We now offer our customers a comprehensive set of Fault and Performance Management monitoring solutions for all their real-time multimedia needs."

Telchemy's new VQmon/SA-VM, Version 2.2, will be available in late April through leading networking, test and management partner companies.
