New Tektronix MPEG Test Analysers Foster DTV And IP Video Transition

Tektronix, a leading worldwide provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation, has announced two new models in the MTS400 MPEG Analyser Series.
The midrange MTS415 and the portable, entry-level MTS400P models provide first line diagnostics with integrated cross layer fault analysis and error logging. Additionally, the company announced an enhancement to the MT S430 and new Tclips test streams. The analysers add to the industry-leading portfolio of video test equipment and solutions from Tektronix with a wide range of supported DTV and IP video related standards including MPEG, DVB, ATSC, ISDB-T, ISDB-TB, IPv4 and IPv6. The new additions advance the development and deployment of next generation DTV and IP Video networks and services.
Engineers developing, testing, debugging and evaluating next generation compressed video technology, products and services that are distributed and delivered over RF and/or IP networks must comprehensively and quickly test, characterise and validate video services within their systems.
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. In addition to standard features, the IP Video Option for the MTS400P offers a choice of 10, 100 and 100base-T or optical LineRate connections. This option supports IPv4 and IPv6 networks and includes Time-stamped Transport Stream (TTS) analysis. The MTS400P enables customers to analyse both constrant and variable bit rate streams, single or multi-program transport streams plus IP and TS Key Performance indicator analysis of up to 500 simultaneous sessions in IPv4 and IPv6 based networks.
Other options include an MPEG Player, Deferred Time Multiplexer, Deferred Time Transport Stream Compliance Analyser, PES Analyser, Buffer Analyser and a Carousel Analyser and Generator.
The new MTS415 offers premium analysis and the key measurements that broadcasters and operators require. Standard features include an MPEG Player/Recorder, Transport Stream Compliance Analyser for either deferred time or real time analysis, PES and Buffer Analysers. Also included is MTS4CC, a cost effective solution for CODEC comparisons and diagnosing interoperability problems. Like the MTS400P, an IP Video option is available for the MTS415 that includes support for IPv6 and Time-stamped Transport Stream Analysis.
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. New MTS430 models now include a second software license that allows either the TS or ES analysis tools to be used on another PC.
