T-VIPS Expands its Footprint in Digital Terrestrial Television with the Launch of the TNS547 DTT Monitor

The TNS547 DTT Monitor extends T-VIPS' portfolio of DVB-T2 solutions and enables "end to end" monitoring - from the headend to the RF signals at the transmitter - delivering a complete toolset ensuring top class Quality of Service in terrestrial networks

Oslo, Norway - T-VIPS, a global leader in professional video contribution and distribution solutions, today announced the launch of the TNS547 DTT Monitor for DVB-T and DVB-T2 Networks, which provides true end-to-end monitoring for DVB-T and DVB-T2 operators. The TNS547 is the newest member of the T-VIPS nSure product line and is designed to ensure the delivery of high-quality video content by simplifying the monitoring and analysis of DVB-T/T2 transport streams and services throughout a terrestrial network. This new solution has been developed in close cooperation with customers and will ship at the end of Q1 2012.

"With the switch off of analogue systems imminent, Quality of Service and reliability in DTT systems are of critical importance. Errors and service breaks need to be detected the second they occur, and that is what we enable with our nSure monitoring and switching solutions," said Johnny Dolvik, CEO, T-VIPS. "By providing the capability to monitor off-air signals at the transmitter site with the T-VIPS TNS547, we can now offer powerful end-to-end DTT monitoring - from the head-end to the transmitter site - for both DVB-T and DVB-T2 infrastructures."

The T-VIPS TNS547 provides efficient monitoring of all major interfaces, formats and layers found in DVB terrestrial networks. The monitoring and analysis features enable fast fault-detection and diagnostics either through an intuitive web-based user interface or integration with a network management system. Improved operational efficiency and network reliability are compelling reasons to deploy the TNS547 DTT Monitor in digital terrestrial networks.

As broadcast infrastructures become increasingly complex, the TNS547 provides an ideal tool for the continuous monitoring of relevant QoS parameters at important points in the terrestrial transmission chain. The TNS547 provides an extensive range of RF measurements, T2-MI analysis capabilities (DVB A14-1), IP/Ethernet statistics and EPG/EIT verification. Error detection and alarms are compliant with ETSI TR 101 290 (Pri 1-3) for DVB signals.


o Off-air RF monitoring of signals at DTT transmitter sites
