MPEG Generators - Tektronix MTX100B MPEG-2 Recorder and Player

Supplier: TekMark Australia

The MTX100B MPEG-2 Recorder and Player offers a flexible, affordable solution for design evaluation and conformance testing of digital video systems using MPEG-2 technology

Price Guide: POA

The MTX100B records and plays out MPEG-2 transport streams compliant with ATSC, DVB, and ISDB standards at the high data rates needed to verify and troubleshoot designs for high-performance video products and systems. The large internal storage, USB 2.0, and Ethernet download capability help you build and maintain a large library of test streams. A suite of DVB, ATSC, and MPEG Test streams are provided with the instrument and optional Multiplexer software with new integrated playout functionality, provides a complete stream creation and generation tool set.

The MTX100B offers continuous, error-free transport stream looping for long-duration playout, and PCR jitter insertion for stressing designs. Users can continuously loop all sample streams, including updating of all time stamps, continuity counters, time tables (TDT, TOT, and STT), Normal Playtime Reference, ISDB-T Reed Solomon FEC plus RTP time stamps and sequence numbers for IPTV, without fear of buffer under- or overflow. IP generation capability negates the need to purchase a separate IP Player and provides a consistent user experience regardless of which physical interface is used to generate streams. Investment is protected through inclusion of support for IPv6 and TTS standards.

Ethernet network remote control functionality enables control of functions such as Play, Record, Clock Rate, and Jitter Insertion using the SCPI (Standard Control for Programmable Instruments) command set.
The MTX100B can play any transport stream files, including custom transport streams created with offline multiplexers in the Tektronix MPEG Analysis Tools. In addition, the MTX100B can play data files in other formats, including elementary streams and files in DSS format.
