Enhanced GuideBuilder™ PSIP Generator for Broadcast and Mobile DTV

The GuideBuilder™ PSIP generator is well established as a tool that enables broadcasters to meet the FCC's PSIP requirements, ensure the viewability of their DTV broadcasts, and enhance the off-air DTV service. Triveni Digital's strategy for GuideBuilder in the future mobile TV landscape is to leverage best-of-breed integrations with other station elements (traffic, automation, listing services, muxes, encoders, etc.) to allow broadcasters to repurpose their current investments in systems and training. Unlike alternative guide solutions for mobile DTV, Triveni Digital focuses on enabling near-zero impact on operations to deploy robust mobile DTV broadcasts.

At the 2009 NAB Show, the company will demonstrate a mobile signaling layer/channel changer software extension of the existing market share-leading GuideBuilder PSIP system. By integrating metadata management and generation for mobile DTV directly into the GuideBuilder, Triveni Digital provides broadcasters with both terrestrial and mobile functionality in a single platform using their existing workflow. The GuideBuilder system thus offers an easy software upgrade path for existing customers while maintaining all current operational functionality, thereby reducing additional overhead operational costs associated with basic GuideBuilder solutions for mobile service to near zero.

GuideBuilder's new signaling capabilities for mobile DTV enable transmission of channel changer signaling layer data to mobile ATSC receivers, allowing users to select and change viewing channels. In addition to supplying information about current show, duration, rating, and other characteristics, the mobile DTV enhancements to GuideBuilder also support the delivery and display of parental control data.

The GuideBuilder system provides mission-critical operational capabilities for both content providers and network operators by generating accurate metadata, the foundation for ATSC digital television transport streams, whether broadcast for television sets or mobile devices. Fully automated redundancy, support for centralized PSIP generation, and tight integration with multiplexers, traffic systems, and automation systems makes it easy to incorporate GuideBuilder into existing broadcast infrastructures.

StreamScope™ RM-40SE MPEG Video Monitoring Solution

At the 2009 NAB Show, Triveni Digital will showcase the StreamScope™ RM-40SE, a low-cost RF/QAM monitoring probe which can be located at transmitter sites for continuous, real-time monitoring of the DTV signal. This video monitoring solution makes it easy and inexpensive for broadcasters to ensure continuous service and rapidly debug issues when they arise. The RM-40SE is a full-featured, in-depth, 24/7 unattended remote monitoring instrument that performs comprehensive MPEG video monitoring for real-time RF streams and offers all the analysis functionality of the RM-40 base and High Bandwidth Edition (HBE).

The RM-40SE remotely monitors, measures, and records DTV streams to ensure their integrity, reliability, and compliance with standards. In addition to the well-established standards supported by the StreamScope line, including ATSC, ATSC A/78, and ETR 101 290, Triveni Digital's RM-40SE now also represents the first implementation of the new SCTE-142 standard.

The optional Remote Troubleshooting Module (RTM) provides remote analysis capabilities, including unique postmortem analysis feature that allows users to analyze/debug issues up to two weeks in the past. Used in conjunction with Triveni Digital's MT-40 end-to-end, MPEG-2/MPEG-4 transport stream monitoring and analysis system in a distributed network architecture, the RM-40SE also enables stream comparison across the network.

Low-Cost StreamScope™ MT-40 DTV Transport Stream Monitor and Analyzer

Triveni Digital is introducing a new low-cost version of its StreamScope™ MT-40 monitor, a comprehensive, user-friendly instrument for real-time analysis and verification of DTV transport streams. The MT-40 facilitates end-to-end MPEG-2/MPEG-4 transport stream monitoring and analysis for DTV signals carried by broadcast, cable, satellite, IPTV, or mobile networks, and Triveni Digital is using the 2009 NAB Show to offer a budget-sensitive model featuring two PCI card slots. For those broadcasters requiring analysis of just two input types, this solution offers all the functionality needed compared to the current shipping MT-40. In addition to the lower cost, size and weight are greatly reduced. The MT-40 supports RF (VSB), SMPTE310, ASI, QPSK, 64/256 QAM GigE, and file inputs, and broadcasters can select the two inputs best suited for their operations.

With in-depth troubleshooting and analysis capabilities for multiple signals over all commonly encountered physical layers including deep packet inspection, the MT-40 can monitor, alarm, troubleshoot, record, and measure DTV transport streams in order to ensure their integrity, reliability, and compliance with standards (ATSC, ATSC A/78, SCTE 35, SCTE 18). Key features include SNMP support for alarming; remote monitoring with full-featured connectivity to remote users; electronic program guide (EPG) display; unique, value-added PSIP and PSI cross-table consistency checking; SD or HD video thumbnails; close captioning; IP route analysis; IGMPv3 for IP multicast support; and real-time PCR analysis and video and audio buffer analysis with graphs. The MT-40 also interfaces with Triveni Digital's RM-40 unattended remote monitoring system to provide a meaningful picture of DTV transport streams across a network.
