Fox monitors multiple streams9 November 2012
The Fox Technology Group in the USA is to use the StreamScope transport stream monitor from Triveni Digital to analyse the integrity of its multi-platform delivery. The device is able to monitor terrestrial and mobile broadcast streams for Fox affiliate stations as well as being used in the lab to determine critical parameters for new mobile broadcast systems. The aim is to deliver a flawless experience whatever platform the consumer is using. “StreamScape is the most accurate and comprehensive solution we have found for diagnosing terrestrial and mobile transport stream issues in real time,” said Yves Montané, director of research and development engineering at Fox. “From a unified user interface, it provides our engineers with powerful monitoring and analysis capabilities that dramatically increase the efficiency of our broadcast operation.” The StreamScape is designed to provide detailed analysis through a simple single user interface. Engineers can review error alerts, live video thumbnails, cross-table analyses and system logs in order to troubleshoot and resolve transport stream issues quickly, maintaining consistent quality across multi-platform delivery.
