Pixelmetrix will demonstrate a PSIP compliance monitoring for its DVStation monitoring platform at NAB2004.
When used with either the SMPTE-310, ASI or 8-VSB RF interfaces, the functionality provides terrestrial operators and cable head-ends a reliable and cost effective insurance policy against non-compliant broadcasts.
The DVStation allows operators to measure 8-VSB modulation quality, monitor the MPEG-2 transport stream, PSIP compliance, and validate program content. A graphical display uses color coding highlights actual abnormal behavior.
Unattended monitoring of RF, modulation and transport stream parameters can be accomplished through user-defined alarms. DVStation's alarm sub-system can trigger actions that include simple log entries, audible alerts, SNMP traps, contact closures, and transport stream recording (96Mb/s) with internal playback. Other user programmable actions can include email or pager notification.
