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.
|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.|

|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..
|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 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.
As broadcasters make the transition from exclusively analog video broadcasting to programming that includes compressed digital video, digital encoder designers are faced with the need to understand the MPEG-2 compression standard and the role it plays in designing robust MPEG equipment

|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....
