Elementary Stream Analysis

MTS4EAB Elementary Stream Analyzer is a powerful PC-based software package for the deferred time analysis of encoded audio and video elementary streams. Supported video standards include H.264/AVC, VC-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 part 2, and H.263. Supported audio standards include MPEG-2 audio, AAC, and AC-3.

MTS4EAB is available for stand-alone or networked PCs, and for Tektronix MTS4000 MPEG Test Systems.

Video compression standards are complex and involve many elements which are vitally important to the efficiency and interoperability of compressed video in different applications. MTS4EAB provides verification of the compliance of the stream against the compression standard, detailed analysis and statistics of the video and audio streams, tools for editing and debugging the stream, fidelity comparison against the original uncompressed stream, and checking for any video and audio delay. Analysis of intermediate H.264/AVC transform values is included, as well as ARIB TR-B14 compliance verification. It enables equipment and systems developers to test and bring new designs rapidly to market, and video users to test compliancy, interoperability, and performance of compression products. Streams can be outputted for use with the Tektronix PQA600 Picture Quality Analyzer.
