MPEG Software

Sophisticated MPEG Software tools for Generation, Editing, and Analysis of Transport, Program and Elementary Streams (MPEG-2, MPEG-4, AVC / H.264, and HEVC / H.265)

Tektronix MPEG Software Tools allow you to delve into transport and elementary streams to track down the sources of picture anomalies or Transport Streams with errored syntax. The ability to capture events for deep analysis is critical to identifying the root cause of problems, and our QoE software analysis tools shorten the time to finding the root cause by identifying impairments and artifacts that can be traced directly to network issues.

Features

Benefits

Tools operate on file based or IP streams Transport Stream analysis includes both deferred-time (TSCA) and real-time (TSCR) capabilities to analyze streams received via your PC’s Ethernet interface (IP)
Buffer Analysis, Multiplexing and ES Compliance Checking Facilitate the transition to Next Generation video compression technology with a complete suite of tools for creation and analysis of transport streams.
Compliance verification with the encoding standard Confirm the stream will be correctly decoded by all compliant receivers in the market place
Synchronized video, audio and data views Instant cross referencing reduces time to insight and increases efficiency
Reliable and accurate video artifact measurement by performing a full decode on the video stream. Allows operators to determine if the source of a problem is in the content source (for example over-compression) or in network distribution.
Analysis of decoded MPEG-2, AC-3, MPEG-2 AAC and MPEG-4 AAC Audio Loudness in accordance with ITU-R BS.1770/1771 and ATSC A/85. Allows operators in all regions to analyze loudness related problems to the ITU audio standards.

Solving Intermittent Transport Stream Problems with CaptureVu Technology

CaptureVu technology allows you to set an error break point on an incoming real time or stored MPEG transport stream. By setting specific conditions for CaptureVu technology you allow the analyzer to find intermittent problems for you, trigger a recording to memory, or stop analysis to allow you to drill down to the route cause of an issue quickly and efficiently.

A Layman's Guide to PCR Measurements

Program Clock References (PCRs) provide the means for a digital TV receiver to lock its decoded video output to the video source present at the input to an encoder. The subject of PCR measurement is often misunderstood. This technical brief describes impairments that affect the PCR and appropriate..

Technical Brief
A Guide to MPEG Fundamentals and Protocol Analysis

MPEG is one of the most popular audio/video compression techniques because it is not just a single standard. Instead, it is a range of standards suitable for different applications but based on similar principles. MPEG is an acronym for the Moving Picture Experts Group.

Primer
PCR Measurements Primer

Engineers and technicians who monitor or measure video parameters must have confidence in the results. We describe in this primer a new procedure for jitter measurements as recommended in TR 101 290.

Testing the MPEG2 Transport Stream

The protocols involved in iTV are very complex. A full understanding of them is necessary, not only to ensure that iTV can be delivered in a flexible way, but in a way that provides the responsiveness that a consumer expects and ultimately pays for.

Testing Video Transports Streams Using Templates

The addition of template testing makes Tektronix test systems, such as the MTM400, a very powerful and cost-effective way of applying scheduled service and related tests to specific target probe points. Transmission-chain errors can be detected and pinpointed promptly by strategically....
