Any solution for monitoring transport stream based content must be able to adapt to the rapidly changing broadcast landscape yet be fully compatible with all major industry standards.

Reliability in challenging environments, low-energy operation, deployable on both software and dedicated hardware, these solutions must bring greater efficiency to digital media businesses, by making it simpler to manage complexity.

Bridge Technologies is able to provide in-depth IP & Transport Stream analysis for detailed understanding of data for error, jitter, dropped packets, latency and low throughput analysis. In particular, the comprehensive ETR290 engine for full broadcast service monitoring and analysis functionality according to TS 101 290 as used in head-end and studio environments is widely recognised as the gold standard for transport stream measurement & analysis.

Bridge Technologies have added many new checks to the analysis engine which complement and extend the ETSI TR 101 290 specification.

The additional checks cover the Conditional Access system; RF measurements for QAM, DVB-S/S2 QPSK and COFDM inputs; extended tests for most of the PSI/SI tables such as verification of important descriptors as well as comparison of the NIT across different frequencies. Tables and descriptors can be analysed visually for PSI, SI and PSIP. Minimum, maximum and current bitrate measurements are available for both PIDs and services and for either textual or graphical presentation, and scrambling is indicated throughout the GUI.

The MicroETR technology presents transport stream measurements in one easy to comprehend GUI. The operator can easily click on the stream containing errors and drill down to find the cause of the problem. The probe displays full measurements and details for all checks, not just the alarms themselves. Alarm graphs further make it possible to view alarm history over time, with tool-tip functionality to facilitate quick error pin-pointing.
