  • detailed decoding and display of decoded data and data explanations
  • listing of all content PIDs incl. exact purpose
  • additional information for Audio/Video PIDs
  • EPG viewer
  • channel allocation
T2-MI
  • in-depth T2-MI TS analysis
  • analysis of each single L1 packet, Timestamp packet and Baseband frame

In-depth Analysis of Transport Stream Snapshots
  • a snapshot from the current received Transport Strom gets created on the remote monitoring probe via triggering of an appropriate SNMP command
  • the TS snapshot gets transmitted via FTP from the monitoring probe to the PC of the system engineer
  • by using of the decontis analysis tools the system engineer gets enabled to analyse the TS in any regard
  • problems/errors can be analysed very fast, very comfortable and very cost efficient
In-depth Analysis of recorded Transport Stream
  • the recording tool of SAMcorder records a TS from a live source
  • the recorded TS gets analyzed by the SAMalyzer application
