Pixelmetrix announced that 35 FOX owned and operated television stations in the United States have installed its DVStation ATSC/digital television monitoring platform.
Each station purchased a DVStation system configured for both off air RF/8-VSB and SMPTE310/MPEG-2 transport stream analysis and monitoring. Stations in duopoly markets received four-port DVStations, so both markets/stations could be monitored simultaneously.
FOX will use the systems to provide test and measurement and real-time monitoring of RF and MPEG-2 metrics. In addition, the VNC Remote Control software allows FOX engineering management to collaborate on station technical issues remotely.
The DVStation, which runs on the Linux operating system, is a real time, multi-tasking, multi-user analyzer designed to let engineers probe, detect, alert and monitor the various RF and MPEG-2 signals used in the ATSC Digital TV station.
