PRINCETON, N.J. — May 28, 2008 — Triveni Digital, a subsidiary of LG Electronics (LGE), today announced that it has extended its StreamScope™ test and measurement line with the release of the RM-40SE, a low-cost, easy-to-use monitoring probe that provides comprehensive and continual remote MPEG video monitoring for real-time RF streams. The full-featured monitoring instrument is packaged in a compact design, yet boasts the power to verify DTV transport streams carried by broadcasters and cable, telco, satellite, MobileTV, and IPTV service providers.
"The introduction of the StreamScope RM-40SE rounds out a complete monitoring solution that encompasses an entire cable or IPTV operation, whether on a local, regional, or national scale," said Ralph Bachofen, Triveni Digital senior director of product management and marketing. "By providing in-depth unattended monitoring 24/7 at a low price point, the RM-40SE gives service providers a highly effective and very affordable means of maintaining the quality of video delivery from any site in the broadcast network."
In addition to working with the well-established standards — ATSC, ATSC A/78, and ETR 101 290 — already supported by Triveni Digital's StreamScope line, the new RM-40SE represents the first implementation of the new SCTE-142 standard describing transport stream conformance criteria. Successful tuning and display of programs relies on adherence of the transport stream to SCTE standards, and the RM-40SE uses these guidelines to identify and categorize errors by type and severity, thus supporting efficient troubleshooting and simplifying the resolution of issues within the DTV stream.
The RM-40SE can be monitored from any SNMP agent in the network, and alarms can be distributed via e-mail, SMS, or SNMP traps. Interfaces to Triveni Digital GuideBuilder™ metadata management systems validate that the streams are well formed from a standards perspective. The RM-40SE also includes innovations such as stream profiling and comparison and template learning, which together add further business-specific intelligence to the monitoring process. Additionally, the optional Remote Troubleshooting Module (RTM) provides remote analysis capabilities, including a unique postmortem analysis functionality allowing users to analyze issues up to two weeks in the past.
