FOX Technology Group Monitors Terrestrial and Mobile DTV Transport Streams With StreamScope® MT-40
PRINCETON, N.J. - October 31, 2012
Triveni Digital today announced that FOX Technology Group has deployed Triveni Digital’s StreamScope® MT-40 real-time DTV transport stream monitor with ATSC-Mobile/Handheld (M/H) capabilities in its DTV lab facility. Leveraging the StreamScope MT-40’s highly intuitive user interface, FOX Technology Group can more efficiently analyze the integrity of terrestrial and mobile transport streams for affiliate stations and monitor new mobile broadcast equipment, providing viewers with a flawless experience on any TV or smartphone device.
“StreamScope is the most accurate and comprehensive solution we have found for diagnosing terrestrial and mobile transport stream issues in real time,” said Yves Montané, director of research and development engineering at FOX Technology Group. “From a unified user interface, StreamScope provides our engineers with powerful monitoring and analysis capabilities that dramatically increase the efficiency of our broadcast operation.”
The StreamScope MT-40 performs real-time, detailed analysis for multiple terrestrial and mobile transport streams over all commonly encrypted physical layers, helping FOX Technology Group maintain compliance with industry broadcast standards as well as station business requirements. Through a single user interface, engineers can review error alerts, live video thumbnails, cross-table analyses, program guides, detailed charts, dynamic graphs, and system logs in order to troubleshoot and resolve transport stream issues quickly. The platform also monitors mobile frame timing and structure, parade and ensemble usage, and required and optional data tables for FOX Technology Group’s mobile transport streams, enabling broadcast stations to deliver a consistent broadcast on mobile devices. Engineers receive meaningful alarms via email and text message ensuring that they can rapidly troubleshoot errors, as well as analyze and resolve chronic or network-wide issues.
“In order to support a mobile transport stream reliably, broadcasters must adhere to a variety of new industry requirements and specifications,” said Ralph Bachofen, vice president of marketing and head of sales at Triveni Digital. “The StreamScope MT-40 was designed to ease the burden of monitoring multiple terrestrial and mobile transport streams by providing users with a single, user-friendly interface that can seamlessly be integrated into any existing broadcast architecture.”
The StreamScope MT-40 communicates with an existing Triveni Digital GuideBuilder® PSIP and Mobile metadata management and generation platform, enabling FOX Technology Group stations to transmit required schedule information accurately to terrestrial and mobile ATSC receivers. GuideBuilder displays both legacy PSIP and mobile DTV electronic service guides via a user-friendly program editor, optimizing the broadcaster’s legacy and mobile ATSC metadata workflow.
