The MTM400A provides a complete solution for real-time transmission monitoring of MPEG transport streams over RF, IP, and ASI interfaces. Powerful confidence monitoring capability and deep diagnostic measurements are both combined into a single integrated solution. This supports Broadcasters, Cable, Satellite and Telecommunication Operators to deliver superior quality of service (QoS) levels with reduced operational expenditure.
The confidence monitoring capability uniquely simplifies DTV monitoring with the FlexVuPlus summary displays, that includes video thumbnail and electronic program guide (EPG) views. This empowers operational staff with the simplest information necessary to ensure their service is delivering above their defined thresholds for superior QoS.
The deep diagnostic options provides engineers with intelligent hierarchical views of network information, media and data to support rapidly identifying the root cause of underlying service problems. These diagnostic monitoring options provide more in-depth analysis of the MPEG transport stream including recording capability, PSI/SI/PSIP/ARIB analysis, and unique user-defined template tests to ensure right content, right place, right time.
Unique Learning mode creates an automatic baseline for physical & Transport Stream parameters to eliminate non-customer impacting alarms. This enables true “monitoring by exception” showing only real deviations from known good measurement parameters. The Auto configure mode optimizes stream based test parameters at the IP physical layer (for example PIT, MDI), RF physical layer (for example MER, SNR), and Transport layer (for example repetition rates, PCR drift). This reduces operational expenditure by eliminating non-customer impacting alarms and focusing resources on other critical activities.
