Triveni Digital has announced a new HEVC functionality for its StreamScope MT-50 transport stream analysis and troubleshooting tool.

Offering intelligent filtering, closed captioning analyses and audio monitoring, the StreamScope MT-50 allows operators to detect and resolve transport stream errors. The HEVC addition will add 4K to that mix.

"HEVC has emerged as a cost-effective method for delivering 4K video content. But the next-generation video compression scheme is much more complex than H.264, making it more difficult to pinpoint transport stream issues," said Ralph Bachofen, vice president of sales and marketing at Triveni Digital. "Adding HEVC functionality to our StreamScope MT-50 family greatly simplifies this process. By providing real-time, high-resolution reports of video, audio, and closed-captioning errors, including HEVC video thumbnails and text, the end-to-end transport stream analysis and troubleshooting tool speeds up error resolution, enabling operators to take advantage of new revenue opportunities and improve the QoS they deliver to customers."

The StreamScope MT-50 supports a broad range of video compression schemes, from HEVC to H.264 and MPEG-2, allowing operators to make a smooth transition to an all-HEVC infrastructure. As new video formats and compression technologies emerge in the future, the software-based solution will make it easy and affordable for operators to adapt, eliminating the need for any additional hardware.

The new HEVC capability is available for all versions of the StreamScope MT-50, including the StreamScope Portal, a touchscreen tablet-based analyser, and the StreamScope MT-50 HDT, which offers a 10 GigE interface option and a 16:9 HD touchscreen.

HEVC continues to make inroads in the industry. For instance MediaTek, a provider of systems-on-chip (SoC) for mobile and home entertainment devices, recently joined the HEVC Advance patent pool.
