MPEG Analysers - Tektronix MTS415 MPEG Test System

Supplier: TekMark Australia

The New Tektronix MTS400 series MPEG test analysers foster DTV and IP video transition.


With its innovative MTS400 series, Tektronix offers the fastest, most accurate and broadest range of easy to use and easy to understand solutions for analysing and isolating problems with compressed video products or services used in cable, satellite, terrestrial, fixed and mobile networks.

The new MTS415 offers premium analysis and the key measurements that broadcasters and operators require. Standard features include an MPEG Player /Recorder, transport Stream Compliance Analyzer for either deferred time or real time analysis, PES and Buffer Analyzers.
Also included is MTS4CC, a cost effective solution for CODEC comparisons and diagnosing interoperability problems. Like the MTS400P, an IP Video option is available for the MTS415 that includes support for IPv6 and Time-stamped Transport Stream Analysis.

Features & Benefits

  • Industry's Fastest Analysis Engine Enables Reduced Time to Insight, Rapid Development, Evaluation, Deployment, and Diagnostics of Next-generation DTV and IPTV Systems and Services
  • A Wide Range of DTV Standards are Supported, Including MPEG, DVB, ATSC, ISDB, and ISDB-TB (Brazil). Specific SI for Terrestrial, Cable, and Satellite, plus Regional Variations of these Standards are Also Supported
  • Range of Interfaces and Analysis Capabilities Provide the Necessary Connectivity to Diagnose Problems Anywhere in the Network Environment, whether that be Transmission Links (RF or IP layer) or Content Processing (TS layer)
  • Connect to both IP Version 4 and 6 Networks, Including those using IGMP and MLD Multicast Protocols Respectively
  • Analyze both Constant and Variable Bit Rate Streams (CBR and VBR)* 
  • Integrated Cross-layer Fault Analysis and Logging Provides One-box Solution for Fault Diagnosis, Reducing Time to Insight when Troubleshooting
  • Playout Functionality Provides Stimulus with Parametric Capabilities and IP Multisession Replication to Characterize Behavior of Network or Device Under Test
  • CaptureVu Technology Captures and Analyzes System Events in Real Time and Deferred Time to Debug the Intermittent and Complex Problems that Traditional Analyzers Miss
  • Innovative Program-centric User Interface Brings Expert Power to the Novice User
  • H.264 Buffer Analysis, Multiplexing, and ES Compliance Checking Provide the Most Powerful Suite of Tools for Creation and Analysis of Transport Streams Containing H.264 Content
  • Both Buffer Analysis and Multiplexing are Now Available for MPEG-4 AAC, a Mandatory ISDB-TB Audio CODEC. These Compliment the Existing MPEG-4 AAC ES Compliance Checking
  • Try Before You Buy: Demo Versions of the TSCA, Multiplexer, and Buffer Analyzer are Available to Download

Equipment Manufacturers - Manufacturing Test
  • Equipment Test is Simplified and Faster with CaptureVu and the High-speed Analysis Engine

Broadcasters and Network Operators

  • RF and IP Connectivity and Analysis Provide Single-box Solution for Broadcast System Troubleshooting
  • Integrated Cross-layer Fault Analysis and Logging for Network Fault Diagnosis Reduces Time to Insight when Troubleshooting and Removes the Need for Additional IP- or RF-specific Diagnostic Equipment
  • CaptureVu Technology Allows Isolation of Intermittent Network Problems that Other Analyzers Would Not Be Capable of Isolating
  • Tests Contribution Feeds or Encoder Outputs, Multiplexer Inputs/Outputs, Head-end Modulators, and IP Encapsulators
  • Tests PCR Insertion, Recovery, and Regeneration Equipment
  • Encoder and Other Equipment Fault Diagnosis and Evaluation
  • Analysis of Transport Streams to Confirm Correct System Operation and Isolate Faults During Installation and Commissioning
* Some timing-related measurements are not possible with VBR streams.
** Duplex is not available for Transport Streams over IP.
