New Tektronix MTM400A speeds detection of signal degradation

Tektronix has announced its new MTM400A MPEG Transport Stream Monitor, which lets broadcasters and IPTV network operators detect signal degradation caused during transmission and distribution so they can find and diagnose errors more quickly and prevent signal loss to viewers.

The MTM400A features a new FlexVuPlus user interface that leverages the deep measurement capabilities of the MTM platform to deliver greatly simplified DTV monitoring and diagnostics.

The MTM400A with FlexVuPlus provides a configurable common user interface for both confidence and diagnostic monitoring. The new MTM400A enables a faster understanding of initial fault reporting.

The unit provides multi-layer, multichannel, remote monitoring and measurement at IP, RF and transport layers to DVB (TR 101 290), ATSC, DigiCipher II (DCII) and ISDB-T (terrestrial and mobile) standards.
