  1. Tektronix to Show Monitoring, Analysis at NAB

    At the 2017 NAB Show in Las Vegas in April, Tektronix will showcase video monitoring and analysis solutions including hybrid IP and SDI media analysis, ABR monitoring for live and on-demand content, and video network monitoring. Tektronix PRISM is designed for real-time monitoring and analysis of IP streams and the associated content, enabling early identification and diagnosis of network or content issues including intermittent loss of video, audio or data content. New additions to the platform's capabilities includes analysis of PTP synchronization timing, support for SMPTE ST 2022-7 redundancy, IGMP V3 and new API support for integration into network management systems, and IP stream capture. Tektronix SPG8000A master sync and PTP grandmaster clock generator is designed to offer Precision Time Protocol (PTP) support for hybrid IP and SDI media infrastructure, while PRISM offers PTP timing measurement and analysis for system setup and maintenance. Tektronix' Sentry ABR and Aurora file-based QC solutions provide Perceptual Video Quality (PVQ) measurements designed to detect video compression artifacts that affect the viewer's quality of experience (QoE). It's intended to provide correlation between file-based and live stream monitoring technologies. Sentry ABR is also designed to give an end-to-end view of QoE for all profiles by decrypting and decoding the live video and audio from the origin or caching servers for both encrypted and unencrypted content. Sentry ABR can decrypt each program from servers applying DRM and can view and report on the same content seen by subscribers. Tektronix Sentry is intended for monitoring multiple programs simultaneously and in real time. It can be used to provide alarming at the local broadcast station level to warn broadcasters of potential problems before they impact customers and provide engineering staff with diagnostic information to remedy problems. At the entry level, Sentry is designed to provide monitoring and alarming on TR 101 290 priority 1, 2 and 3 quality of service (QoS) of all content leaving the station. With software upgrades, the Sentry capabilities can be extended to include QoE, PVQ, CALM and regulatory compliance alarming, measurement, and reporting. Sentry can monitor streams containing HEVC, H.264, JPEG2000 encoded content in either OTT or linear formats. Connectivity solutions include IP, ASI, 8-VSB, QAM, T/T2 and S/S2.
