MPEG transport stream monitor

StreamScope RM-50 MPEG transport stream monitor

The standard StreamScope RM is a cost-effective tool for maintaining viewer QoS and regulatory compliance across multiple MPEG transport streams.

For multichannel monitoring

The RM can handle many simultaneous inputs, including RF, ASI, and GigE. At-a-glance dashboards and reports display real-time QoS and compliance data.

With closed caption and loudness verification

To maintain FCC 14-12 compliance, the RM reports missing, inaccurate, and unsynchronized closed captions. For CALM Act compliance, the RM performs spot checks, displays LKFS graphs, and generates commercial loudness reports.
