SINGAPORE -- Pixelmetrix Corporation will introduce at NAB, booth C6616:

Major upgrade to IPTV test & monitor platform, DVStation-IP latest features now include a service view display for viewing the summary of all components of a service including video, audio, CA, data carousels, etc. The system also presents all broadcast services within all SPTS IP connections in a single consolidated view. Additionally, audio alarms for silence and tone allow customers to monitor audio integrity on all channels. The DVStation-IP now supports the monitoring of 21 Single Program Transport Streams (SPTS) on its Gigabit Ethernet input.

DVStor-IP, a cost-effective hard disk-based system that allows non-stop simultaneous recording of multiple channels of transmitted IP video. The video is recorded by specifying the source IP address and destination IP address of the transmitted video. A continuous archive of recorded video is created on a "First In, First Out" (FIFO) basis. This means that out-of-date material is removed to allow for fresh recordings. However, when necessary, selected segments can also be locked to prevent it from being removed or overwritten.

ConsolidatorPlus, a comprehensive Network Management System for its DVStation preventive monitoring platform. ConsolidatorPlus enables complete visibility of network status from a straight forward Windows client. The user interface can be fully customized – including a geographical map showing the location and status of each device. When a fault occurs, the corresponding monitoring point is highlighted, enabling the operator to drill down and determine the nature of the fault. ConsolidatorPlus can be used to manage a mixed network of monitors, displaying the appropriate level of information for each device, fault, and/or location.

DVB-T Line Interface, a high performance solution for monitoring of digital terrestrial transmission, both over the terrestrial channel and at the transmission tower. The high fidelity demodulator is well suited to monitoring directly off a broadcast tower’s high power amplifier to ensure the integrity of the broadcast signal driving the transmission antenna. The DVB-T line interface is a standard DVStation family module available for DVStation Remote Controller, DVStation DVS210, as well as portable DVStation Pod applications.

Satellite Line Interface, a multi-standard solution for monitoring digital satellite transmissions. The SLF supports the DVB-S, Motorola DigiCipher II, and Turbo Code modulation, standards used to carry MPEG-2 transport streams. The SLF is a standard DVStation family module available for DVStation Remote Controller, DVStation DVS210, as well as portable DVStation Pod applications.
