Software Description

1.  DtTV – MPEG-2 Transport Stream Television Software

 DtTV Features

  • Live decoding of any unscrambled  service within a transport-stream
  • Intuitive user interface, enabling easy switching between services (zapping), controlling audio volume and brightness level and selection of an input device
  • Decoding of multiple television services in parallel, for creating a mosaic
  • Quarter-resolution decoding mode for using less processor cycles per decoded picture
  • Decoding of MPEG-1/2, AC3 audio
  • Decoding of  MPEG-4 part 10 / H.264, MPEG-1/2/4, SD/HD,
  • Decoding of HD video (high-end processor and graphics card required)

 DtTV Applications

  • Demonstrations where a decoded  picture is required
  • Mosaic generation
  • Quick verification of the services available in a transport-stream

2.  DtGrabber+ – Transport Stream / SDI Advanced Recorder

 DtGrabber+ Features

  • Recording of MPEG-2 Transport-Streams or SDI signals
  • Multi-file functions:
    – Erase files older than X hours
    – Maximum number of files
    – Time stamp/index in filename
  • Merge tool for combining several files
  • Remote monitoring and control through SNMP
  • Select PIDs to record, with range support, positive/negative filtering
  • Record to a single file, to multiple files or “looped”: continuous recording of the last X seconds/minutes/hours or MB
  • SDI recording: 8 or 10 bits, full frame or video only, Huffman compression on/off
  • Disk-space monitoring

 DtGrabber+ Applications

  • General-purpose capturing tool
  • Advanced recorder solutions
  • Archiving of broadcast signals

3. StreamXpert – Transport Stream Analyser Software

 StreamXpert Features

  • Real-time analysis, monitoring and recording of MPEG-2 transport streams
  • Provides detailed statistics on the PIDs, services and tables found in the transport stream
  • User definable TR 101 290 templates
  • PCR analysis
  • PID grid: compact overview of all PIDs
  • Integrated video and audio decoder with support for MPEG-2/H.264 video streams and AC3 audio
  • Deep decoding of PSI, DVB-SI, DVB-RCS and ATSC-PSIP tables and descriptors
  • Supports DVB-RCS tables: SCT, FCT, SPT, CMT, TBTP, RMT tables and common DVB-RCS descriptors
  • Support for decoding of custom descriptors and tables with a user-defined XML template file

  StreamXpert Applications

  • The world’s most cost-effective and user-friendly transport-stream analyser
  • Test and validation of equipment with transport-stream output
  • Quality monitoring of MPEG-2 transport streams in studios, head ends, etc.
