IP Transport Stream Monitor

Interact with this product in a Layout Tool:

The 7881TSM-IP remote probe is a complete solution for compressed network monitoring. By monitoring the MPEG Transport Stream at strategic points within the distribution network, and in conjunction with the industry-leading VistaLINK® PRO NMS (Network Management System), the 7881TSM-IP offers service providers the tools to continuously and effectively monitor their IP signals within any IPTV, satellite, terrestrial or cable network, ensuring reliable signal delivery.

The 7881TSM-IP can monitor up to 32x transport streams. It can monitor MPEG-2 or H.264 content and rapidly detect and separate encoder errors from network delivery errors, allowing the operator to act quickly and minimize downtime. Evertz' industry-leading VistaLINK® PRO NMS offers a new dimension to TS monitoring by enabling a graphical depiction of any measurement performed and a quick assessment of the different probe points in the system. The 7881TSM-IP probe system is an invaluable asset in any operational environment.
