Product ManualManual

The 9780TSM line of remote probes is a complete software-based solution for compressed network monitoring. By monitoring the MPEG Transport Stream at strategic points within the distribution network, in conjunction with the industry leading VistaLINK® PRO NMS (Network Management System), the 9780TSM offers service providers the tools to continuously and effectively have the confidence that their IP signals within any IPTV, Satellite, terrestrial or cable network is being delivered properly.

The 9780TSM can monitor up to 32 transport streams. The 9780TSM can monitor MPEG-2/H.264/J2K/HEVC content and can in no time separate encoder errors from network delivery errors allowing the operator to act quickly and avoid down time. The industry leading Evertz® VistaLINK® PRO NMS offers a new dimension to TS monitoring by allowing a graphical customization of any measurement performed and a quick viewing of the different points in the system. It makes the 9780TSM probe system a valuable system in any operational environment.
