Testing times for IP streams16 September 2017
The newest member of the ClearView line of video quality analysers is on show at IBC.
Designed for broadcast product manufacturers to use in their test labs, ClearView IP plays or records up to two channels of uncompressed video from a high-capacity testing server into a SMPTE-compliant network. It can apply new IP standards and play while recording in the IP domain.
Video engineers can use automated or desktop controls to perform recording, alignment and other measurements that will help them to assess the progress of their product development. Results can also be used to set encoding parameters for programme delivery, and to evaluate encoders from different vendors.
Two ClearView IP models are available: the Extreme IP, a 3RU server with both IP and 4K SDI interfaces, and the portable Shuttle IP. ClearView Player IP, a high-capacity server specifically designed for use in an IP infrastructure, is also on show.
This device has record and playback functions for uncompressed video using new IP-related video transport standards.
