Services and IPTV Analyzer (*)

IPTV and RF services information

Allows the demodulation and analysis of IPTV streams (both Unicast and Multicast), not only through video display but also by displaying the total bitrate and bitrate for each service. The relevant information for each service is already given: SID, VPID, AID, video profile, bit rate for both audio and video.
In addition, this option completes the RF measurements since all this information by service is analysed as well for this type of signals.
For IPTV signals, specific protocol measurements (UDP/RTP) are also analysed, such as UDP format, Media Loss Rate, Lost IP frames.
(*) Optional feature: Ref. 593251

Wi-Fi Analyser (*)

All bands (2.4 and 5 GHz)

This functionality allows a full analysis of the Wi-Fi band for the automatic detection of all the networks. Each of them is identified by name, and the power of the signal at the access point is also displayed. Two display modes are provided for the user to choose. The β€œlist” mode provides a list of the detected networks with the associated data and power, while the β€œmap” mode represents them on a dual-axis map: power vs. frequency.
(*) Optional feature: Ref. 593250

Measuring return path

From 5 MHz

The capacity of the meter to measure the backwards channel from 5 MHz is very useful for cable installation technicians. By displaying the signal in the spectrum, measuring power and C/N, it is possible to ensure a good status and quality of the upload data transmitted on this bandwidth.

Pass/Fail Indicators

Easy decision-making

Reduce installation mistakes with the on-screen Pass/Fail indicators, a graphical tool that helps and speeds up the interpretation of measurement results. Different thresholds are available depending on the network area to be analysed: headend, multi-band amplifiers, bridging connection, connection records, user home, etc. Besides the pre-set values, you will be able to customize your own threshold values.

Channel Information

The less the better

Sometimes, taking a quick glance at one channel is all you need. The advanced H30Crystal single-channel measurement option automatically detects the channel type, displaying the audio and video levels, A/V and C/N for analogue signals, and power, C/N, and appropriate quality measures for each type of digital signal. All these measures are taken by means of one single button; at that point, all indicators will be activated and display the β€œPass/Fail” condition based on the thresholds specified by the user. Easy-to-interpret results, even for junior technicians.

System Scan

Monitored installation

Scan each existing analogue and digital channel in real time to determine the overall system frequency response. This function leverages the location-based thresholds to clearly show whether the signal levels meet the cable systems’ specifications with green, yellow and red bars. This feature provides an easy-to-understand, real-time view of the system, including the BER and MER values of the selected channel.
