Videotek’s SQM-355 module analyzes a single MPEG stream for compliance to Technical Report ETR 101-290, first, second and third priorities for DVB and ATSC equivalent standards..
Videotek, a test and measurement division of Leitch Technology, has introduced the SQM-355 advanced MPEG data analysis module for its Signal Quality Manager (SQM) system.
The SQM-355 module accepts and analyzes a single MPEG stream for compliance to Technical Report ETR 101-290, first, second and third priorities for DVB and ATSC equivalent standards. Additionally, the module reports bit-rate values per program, PID and transport stream total/used/available to SQM monitoring and control software. It is compatible with SQM-FR1/FR3 frames, existing SQM modules and the appropriate front end software configurations, alarms and operation.
For real-time, unattended monitoring, the SQM serves as the checkpoint of any facility's operations center, continuously monitoring the conditions of all common audio and video formats including analog, digital and MPEG. Developed to detect errors in the signal path and pinpoint the exact location of the error, the SQM system reduces monitoring costs and provides the opportunity for immediate corrective action.
