The MTM400A Digital TV Monitor from Tektronix is designed for real-time transmission monitoring of MPEG Transport Streams over RF, IP, and ASI interfaces. It offers confidence monitoring capability and deep diagnostics combined into a single integrated solution. It is well suited for use in a wide variety of settings and applications, including broadcast, cable, satellite, and telecommunications.
It can be deployed at key network nodes to provide an intuitive and simplified presentation of video quality and diagnostic information. This functionality supports the delivery of Quality of Service (QoS) levels in an increasingly complex broadcast environment. When used together with VQNet, facility and network-wide views allow engineers to sectionalize network problems.
Other features include multilayer, multichannel, remote monitoring and measurement at RF and TS layers to DVB, ATSC, DCII, and ISDB-T/Tb standards with content-checking support for both MPEG-2 and H.264/AVC. Displays key RF monitoring parameters for DVB-T, ATSC, DVB-S/S2, and DVB-C/QAM interfaces to provide early indication of signal degradation before any picture impairment is visible to the end customer.
No additional analysis software is needed. All confidence and diagnostic analysis is carried out from the MTM400A alone. The unit's capabilities are determined by the add-on options that can be purchased separately to enhance its performance and functions.
