CUSTOMER'S TASK

In order to provide maintenance and technical support for their STBs, TP Vision needs to find violations in transport streams in DTV networks of their clients. It was required to replace manual analysis with automated one to save time and resources.

REQUIREMENTS

  • Fast evaluation of DTV transport streams
  • Easy UI for intuitive navigation and use
  • Companion algorithms for data structure parsing

ELECARD SOLUTION

Installation of Elecard StreamEye Studio tools to perform deep analysis of streams and find violations.

RESULT

  • High performance due to fast transport stream analysis
  • Low barriers to deploy thanks to simplified analysis as compared to manual one
  • Quick integration into analysis process
  • Saved analysis time and human resources
  • Increased profit because of reduced after-sale costs

SOLUTION IMPLEMENTATION

StreamEye Studio was quickly adopted into the analysis process: Stream Analyzer allows evaluating DTV transport streams and PSI/SI tables, PES packets and hex values; Elecard SreamEye is used to examine motion vectors and decode H.264 video including element headers which helps quickly identify problems.

Feedback

"We needed a tool for pointing out the exact wrong field/structure in order to speed up analysis procedures and save time and resources. We have usually employed manual analysis which took one or two weeks, while Elecard’s tools are able to reduce it to a couple of days. The analysis became faster and cheaper. Elecard’s solution is simple and well-suited for our task. StreamEye Studio was quickly integrated into our analysis procedure. The intuitive UI of comprehensive tools provide exactly what you want in a simple way. Also, Elecard’s technical support engineers were very helpful in identifying problems and finding correct solutions."
