BANGALORE, INDIA: Tektronix Inc. has announced a new solution for monitoring ISDB-Tb broadcasts from the moment video content enters the network until broadcast, helping to ensure superior quality of service (QoS) for viewers.
With advanced capabilities like remote monitoring and diagnosis, it helps broadcasters deliver reliable services across massive service areas while minimizing the time experts need to spend in the field tracking down the source of problems.
With the new RFM220 ISDB-Tb RF Channel Monitor, Tektronix is delivering the next generation of monitoring solutions for ISDB-Tb that can not only monitor the physical layer RF signal for error detection but also the underlying MPEG video transport stream. This helps engineers quickly determine whether problems are occurring in the physical layer – which could require time-consuming travel to a remote location – or in stream syntax or metadata.
“Today’s digital content goes through considerable processing before it gets delivered to the end-user. Monitoring the RF signal and the underlying MPEG transport is critical to ensuring the best possible experience for the viewer,” said Eben Jenkins, general manager of the Video Product Line, Tektronix.
“At Tektronix we are committed to providing our customers around the world with the relevant solutions they need to solve real world challenges. In the case of ISDB-
Tb, remote monitoring and troubleshooting is a critical need that we now fulfill.”
