A recently launched R&S Prismon monitoring and multiviewer system for broadcast and streaming media is being demoed at the Rohde & Schwarz stand and the IP Showcase.
It supports the SDI, SMPTE 2022-1/2, SMPTE 2022-6, AIMS/SMPTE 2110, ASPEN, HLS and DASH transport standards as well as media formats such as MPEG2/4, HEVC and TICO.
Future new standards and media formats could be added as software upgrades.
According to the company, Prismon automatically detects and signals dropouts and content errors in real time, using monitoring functions such as ‘video freeze with whitelisting’ and ‘video content compare’.
Channels – including those in UHD quality – can be monitored in parallel with Prismon and visualised on a multiviewer video wall.
Prismon is available from Rohde & Schwarz on hardware at various performance levels and as a cloud-based installation. At IBC, it’s being demoed with the VirtuWall, a cloud-based supplementary service to Prismon from R&S subsidiary GMIT. Using a mobile app, the optional VirtuWall service transmits monitoring data collected from geographically distributed Prismon probes.
