IP Distribution Monitoring Blade


Product Summary

The VB120 modular BROADCAST PROBE is designed for continuous digital TV monitoring. System scalability in terms of monitoring capacity, signal formats handled and functionality ensures a future-proof solution. The ability to continuously measure all your media services makes the VB120 invaluable for confidence monitoring.

The VB120 BROADCAST PROBE comprises a fully-fledged ETSI TR 101 290 monitoring engine used to monitor enabled inputs, one monitoring engine per input working in parallel. The basic VB120 monitors ASI and IP. DVB-T/T2, 8VSB, QAM and QPSK DVB-S/S2 demodulators are available. The VB120 performs Priority 1, 2 and 3 measurements. The monitoring engine may also be configured to check signal scrambling. PSI/SI and PSIP tables are analyzed and presented as table summary and hex dump, the latter enabling analysis of proprietary descriptors. Bitrates are measured at TS, service and PID level, and the ETSI TR 101 290 engine also monitors RF parameters for optional demodulator inputs.
