Pixelmetrix Debuts New Tool for IPTV Stress Testing
October 27, 2006
Pixelmetrix has expanded its IPTV service validation systems with the introduction of the DVStorIP-Gen IPTV test stream generator. The DVStorIP-Gen is a tool for the evaluation, compliance testing and verification of networks, monitoring and equipment analysis.
The DVStorIP-Gen is a hard-disk based system that allows non-stop simultaneous recording of multiple channels of transmitted IP video. It allows broadcasters using Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) to verify that a specific transmission actually occurred at a given time.
The DVStorIP-Gen supports SPTS (single-program transport stream) and MPTS (multiple-program transport stream) generation, as well as UDP and RTP streaming. Each generated transport stream can be forwarded to up to 100 target IP destinations, identified by the IP address and port number. It also allows restamping of continuity count and insertion of PCR discontinuity flag during transport stream loopback for error-free streaming.
Danny Wilson, president and CEO of Pixelmetrix said, "Our DVStorIP-Gen can generate up to seven unique transport streams simultaneously. Plus the fact that it can generate up to 900 Mbps of IPTV traffic, makes it an efficient solution for IPTV broadcasters as well as test and monitoring equipment and network providers."
Pixelmetrix is headquartered in Singapore, and has offices in the United States and Europe.
