The European Broadcasting Union has added a number of new features to its media-over-IP test and measurement solution.
EBU List is built by and for broadcasters, open source and incorporates the latest industry standards for live IP production.
List 2.0 has been rebuilt from the ground up, with a new user interface and new functionality, said the EBU.
The feature updates include:
- A clean and modern interface, making it accessible to a much wider pool of potential users.
- The home dashboard provides an at-a-glance view of whether or not a stream is compliant.
- Double-click a stream to bring up detailed analysis of the tests that have been run, along with a Stream Explorer and better, more detailed graphs than were available in Version 1.0.
- The Stream Comparison functionality has been expanded, with options to compare streams before and after processing or two versions of the same source stream, as well as to see whether a pair of streams are completely redundant, or to check audio to video synchronisation.
The EBU said manufacturers have already started to integrate EBU List analysis into their own products, which also helps to improve compliance with industry standards. An SDK (software development kit) is freely available via GitHub.
