Further adding to its broadcast monitoring capabilities, Sentry's RF monitoring capabilities have been expanded to include two new RF interfaces, DVB-S/S2 and DVB-T/T2. These new interfaces, along with IP, ASI and 8VSB allow easy integration into any broadcast signal distribution monitoring scheme.
Service providers including broadcasters and cable operators must comply with FCC Title 47 rules or face the risk of fines or other actions. For enhanced closed caption monitoring, Nexidia Comply is now integrated with Sentry. Nexidia Comply provides an accurate, scalable and affordable automation solution that empowers broadcasters to verify that captions and video description across all of their outputs comply with Title 47 FCC regulations.
"Broadcasters turn to Sentry as an affordable QoS monitoring solution for identifying and isolating problems quickly," said Charlie Dunn, general manager, Video Product Line, Tektronix. "Then, over time as they add more services and capabilities, they can very easily and affordably upgrade to full quality of experience (QoE) monitoring."
Sentry is a next generation video and audio quality monitoring solution for advanced video networks, offering scalable and comprehensive QoE and QoS monitoring. It enables video service providers to deliver services with optimum quality while reducing operational expenditures.
The new enhancements to Sentry are available now.
