Pixelmetrix, the global expert in Preventive Monitoring for digital television and IPTV networks, will set up a Lab Environment for IP Video Delivery with the integration of its DVStorIP-Gen, DVStation-IP3 and VISUALmpeg Qualify (video and audio quality analyzer) at Booth SU12105.
VISUALmpeg Qualify is a new addition to the video quality analyzer family – offering a new level of off-line quality assessment for audiovisual streams with comprehensive support for most current industry video and audio encoding standards and media containers. With a new and scalable distributed architecture, the VISUALmpeg Qualify allows for parallel test administration and browsing of results.
The DVStorIP-Gen is designed to simulate a fully operational IP video delivery headend. It is an effective lab test tool used to understand the behavior of network elements and devices in real world video delivery scenarios. A single IP-Gen eliminates the need for multiple equipment to simulate the operational scenarios of a typical IP video headend. The DVStorIP-Gen can generate error-free as well as user-defined impaired video streams. These capabilities are crucial for stress test network elements. Channel change simulation in a multicast enabled network and video server storage are some of the important functionalities of this cost-effective solution.
A one-stop monitoring engine for IP and Transport Stream Analysis, the DVStation-IP3 allows for detailed service visualization and IP Headend Output verification for IPTV networks. It provides, on all services, MPEG-2 and H.264 main profile thumbnails, Media Delivery Index (MDI) for packet loss and jitter measurements as well as video presence, freeze or blackout displays.
Danny Wilson, President and CEO of Pixelmetrix, remarked, “Combining these three robust systems creates a solid set-up for an IP Video Delivery laboratory environment. Simulating a real network is crucial for lab testing, yet, the flexibility and ease of use of this integrated solution makes the job a snap, assuring quality of service and quality of experience are not jeopardized in a live scenario.”
