Using the tablet-based device, broadcasters can cost-effectively perform real-time or file-based MPEG-2/MPEG-4 analysis and remote monitoring of DTV transport streams to ensure compliance with industry standards and deliver high-quality video services to viewers.
"StreamScope Portal significantly changes an operator's approach to MPEG analysis and monitoring," said Ralph Bachofen, vice president of sales and head of marketing at Triveni Digital. "In addition to offering the state-of-the-art features of our award-winning StreamScope MT analyzer product line, StreamScope Portal provides portability and a convenience factor that has not been available until now, making it an indispensable tool for efficient and cost-effective troubleshooting and analysis of DTV video distribution plants."
By providing users with comprehensive MPEG analysis and monitoring capabilities in an ultra-portable form factor, StreamScope Portal dramatically reduces the time to detect, isolate, and repair video impairments that impact the quality of the viewer's experience, including video tiling, lip sync errors, intermittent tuning, inconsistent loudness levels, and missing components. Through StreamScope Portal's personal, touch-based, portable form factor, engineers can rapidly perform file-based or real-time MPEG-2/MPEG-4 analysis and monitoring of DTV transport streams with Gigabit Ethernet, ASI, and RF interfaces. An intuitive, Web-based graphical user interface offers instant access to alerts, video thumbnails, audio graphs, cross tables, EPG data, system logs, and file-based analysis.
In addition to performing real-time or file-based analysis, StreamScope Portal also acts as a gateway to other Triveni Digital products, including GuideBuilder® 5.0 and StreamScope MT and RM analyzers and remote monitoring devices, further increasing operational efficiencies and cost savings for cable operators and broadcasters. Optional input interfaces, such as RF, will be available later this year.
StreamScope Portal was recently awarded a superior 3.5 rating in Broadband Technology Report's Diamond Technology Reviews, which recognizes the top products and solutions available to the cable industry based on criteria which include innovation, ease of use, efficiency, reliability, and contribution to profitability.
