T-VIPS launches DVB-T/T2 monitor

TV transport technology specialist T-VIPS has launched the TNS547 DTT monitor for DVB-T and DVB-T2 networks.

This new solution, part of the T-VIPS nSure product line, has been developed in close cooperation with customers and will ship at the end of the first quarter of 2012, according to T-VIPS.

“With the switch off of analogue systems imminent, Quality of Service and reliability in DTT systems are of critical importance. Errors and service breaks need to be detected the second they occur, and that is what we enable with our nSure monitoring and switching solutions,” said Johnny Dolvik, CEO, T-VIPS. “By providing the capability to monitor off-air signals at the transmitter site with the T-VIPS TNS547, we can now offer powerful end-to-end DTT monitoring – from the head-end to the transmitter site – for both DVB-T and DVB-T2 infrastructures.”

The TNS547 provides RF measurements, T2-MI analysis capabilities (DVB A14-1), IP/Ethernet statistics and EPG/EIT verification. Error detection and alarms are compliant with ETSI TR 101 290 (Pri 1-3) for DVB signals, according to the company.

Applications include off-air RF monitoring of signals at DTT transmitter sites, simultaneous monitoring of signals in the transmission chain including ASI, IP, T2-MI and RF, TS monitoring, error detection and advanced analysis and 24/7 continuous supervision of signals.
