Broadcasters, Network Operators and Cable MSOs need to ensure high availability network performance and improve their time to insight when problems arise. Tektronix provides a complementary suite of MPEG analysers, generators and monitors with a common analysis activities to meet these diverse and demanding needs.
The portable MTS400P real-time analyser provides an entry-level MPEG analyser from the leading video test vendor.

The MTS415 provides first line diagnostics with integrated cross layer fault analysis and error logging. Time to problem insight is reduced by informing the user whether root cause of video problems is at the Transmission, Transport Stream or Elementary Stream layer. With its new measurement interfaces and analysis capabilities, the MTS415 Series is ideal for equipment developers working to improve product quality and reduce to market and assists engineers and technicians within broadcasters and network operators looking to ensure quality of service in next generation video networks.
The MTS430 provides a fast analysis engine, enabling reduced time to insight, rapid development, evaluation, deployment and diagnostics of next generation DTV and IPTV systems and services.
