Pixelmetrix portfolio of end-to-end IPTV test and monitoring systems serves to facilitate the efficacy of ‘always on’ converged IP network architectures and the ever-expanding multitude of IPTV services. In line with the rapid deployment of IPTV systems, Pixelmetrix devices offer broadcasters, operators, content and network providers a distinct edge in optimizing their IPTV service delivery.
The product demo line-up will include the DVStation-IP for IPTV Quality of Service Monitoring, DVStorIP-Gen for IPTV Stress Testing and DVStation210 Preventive Monitoring System.
DVStation-IP provides MPEG-2 transport stream analysis and monitoring over an IP connection via a 10, 100 and 1000Mbps Ethernet port. It offers remote control and automation platform - ideal for operators requiring the transmission of video and data over Internet or other IP networks. Live Video Display that allows visual confirmation of program content presence, Service View that spans multiple TS, displays MPEG-2 and H.264 video thumbnails, critical TS and audio/video parameters in a concise format, as well as IP input payload capability of up to 500Mbps are some of its key features. A combination of real-time signal measurements and user-configurable alarm thresholds are also integrated.
The DVStorIP-Gen works as an effective IPTV stress test tool for the evaluation, compliance testing and verification of networks. It supports SPTS and MPTS generation, with support for UDP and RTP streaming as well. Each generated transport stream can be forwarded to up to 100 target IP destinations, identified by the IP address and port number. It can also generate up to seven unique transport streams simultaneously, and up to 900Mbps of IPTV traffic, making it an efficient solution for IPTV service providers, monitoring and network equipment providers. The DVStorIP-Gen simulates real network conditions by injecting different types of errors or impairments that can occur in the end-to-end delivery chain of an IPTV system.
The DVStation 210 offers the flexibility to track thousands of parameters within hundreds of television signals real-time, simultaneously and continuously.
The forum will last for three days, starting on March 5, in London.
