Understanding PQR, DMOS and PSNR Measurements

This application note covers these various measurement aspects and how to address quality issues during the transition.

Picture Quality Measurement for Video Applications

This application note focuses on the issues video engineers face when developing and/or evaluating an algorithm, device or video signal path; and the objective picture quality measurement solutions Tektronix® provides to support those requirements.

Objective Measurements and Subjective Assessments Application Note

By using the PQA500 video, content providers can evaluate the various compression and delivery formats to ensure the best possible picture quality of the program.

High Definition Analog Component Measurement

Despite the benefits of digital signal processing, the final signal received by the customer is still converted to an analog signal for display on a picture monitor. With the proliferation of a wide variety of digital devices - set-top boxes, Digital Versatile Disk (DVD) players and PC cards - comes a wide range of video formats beside the standard composite output. It is therefore necessary to understand the requirements for measuring analog component High Definition (HD) signals in order to test the performance of these devices.

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.

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.

Maintaining High Quality of Experience in an Adaptive Bitrate System Webinar

This webinar will look at the many points in an ABR system where the video is touched. From ingest (satellite, file, and IP), to egress, each point should be qualified for compliance to help maintain a high QoE, as well as to provide help in troubleshooting problems that arise over time.
