“DVB-T2 can offer a much higher data rate than DVB-T with a much more robust signal. Actus fully supports DVB-T2, starting from capture cards to API compatibility, with the ability to analyze different performance and operational information in real time,”

“Customers can count on Actus to investigate and support important new industry standards.”

Actus QualiTV – Remote Broadcast Verification & Monitoring

QualiTV is the only tool on the market today that brings you a complete picture of the DVB broadcast status. QualiTV is a multi-layer solution that centralizes broadcast performance operational information in real time:   • DVB Signal Layer – Signal strength, SNR, MER, BER, etc. • Transport Stream Layer – PAT, PMT, SDT, Active PIDs etc. • Video & Audio Layer – Actual access to remote live and recorded media   QualiTV allows broadcasters and operators to monitor one or more capture locations; recording multiple channels. The centralized user interface and content aggregation reduces the overhead costs involved with onsite operational monitoring.   Users can monitor as many remote sites, transport streams and channels per site as needed. QualiTV provides monitoring, statistics, archive access and alerts about content performance on all remote servers. Users can thoroughly investigate performance or problems, now or in the past, effectively increasing quality of service and fixing problems before or as they happen.   QualiTV also constantly monitors the health status, providing detailed graphs and reports of the recorded service giving users an additional layer of assurance that all content is being recorded as it should. Through the dashboard users are able to gain the confidence that the servers are up and running and that the recording services are working properly.   QualiTV monitors the following DVB-T Transport Stream parameters:   • Signal Level in dBmV • Uncorrected Packets • BER • MER • SNR • Current Tuner Frequency in Hz • FEC status • FEC uncorrected errors • FEC corrected errors • FEC burst errors • PAT errors
