Pattern Generation and Error Analysis, highspeed BER Measurements up to 1.6 Gb/s The combination of generation and analysis in one instrument enables receiver BER compliance testing for today’s electronic and communications systems
Integrated, BER correlated eye diagram analysis with pass/fail masks Rapidly understand BER performance limitations, assess deterministic vs random errors, perform detailed pattern dependent error analysis, error burst analysis, and perform error free interval analysis.
Error Location and BER contour analysis on PRBS signals up to 1.6 GB/sec Provides a quick understanding of signal integrity in terms of BER. Error location provides detailed BER pattern sensitivities to speed up identification of deterministic vs. random BER errors
ANSI Jitter Measurements (RJ, DJ, and TJ) Fast, effective method for determining long pattern PRBS31 jitter composition with triangulation. Graphical representation makes jitter analysis more thorough, yet simpler to follow.
BER Contour with Automatic Mask Creation Measure and view the eye diagram opening as a function of BER.

Fact Sheet
Maintaining High Quality of Experience in an Adaptive Bitrate System

Broadcast TV has set a very high bar for viewer expectations and delivering a great quality of experience (QoE). As the trend and demand for multiscreen viewing and TV Everywhere or Over-The-Top (OTT) continues to grow, so does the demand for a high quality of experience with the best content on any device and at any time. Behind that multiscreen experience lies some very complex adaptive bit rate (ABR) technology and a new set of monitoring challenges.
