BridgeTech Academy Trainers' Course Focuses On MPEG Streams In Multicast

Bridge Technologies continues its 2011 programme of training courses with another Train the Trainers course at its Oslo headquarters, between February 15 - 16. These courses complement the BridgeTech Academy's operator training courses by giving customers and distribution partners in-depth expertise for training their own staff in-house.
Led by BridgeTech Academy head Randouth Tillery, the course will equip operators with a full understanding of the key factors necessary to master monitoring and service quality control issues.
The February course content will place extra emphasis on monitoring MPEG-2 transport streams in a multicast environment, together with in-depth exploration of new features and functions of version 4.7 of the VideoBRIDGE software.
Developed in response to the demand from digital media operators, the BridgeTech Academy provides technical personnel with the multidisciplinary operational expertise necessary for a complete understanding of the entire digital TV delivery chain and the VideoBRIDGE advanced monitoring environment. Training courses are provided at Bridge Technologies' Oslo headquarters using a complete on-site transmission chain created for training and testing, or by arrangement at the operator's facility.
The courses are aimed at technical support engineers with some knowledge of IP and with either a broadcast or telco background. Course content will include:
  • Fundamentals
  • The transport stream and IP protocol stack
  • IPTV protocol mappings
  • Relevant standards, unicast vs multicast and IGMP
  • Digital TV measurement techniques
  • General considerations and standards
  • What to measure and where to measure

  • Common network problems and common video problems
  • Case studies, inter-arrival time, and jitter robustness
  • Stuffed vs unstuffed streams
  • The MediaWindow
  • Product training
  • Probes, extractor, generator and VBC
