Evaluation of H.264/AVC and H.265/HEVC encoders and deep analysis of video files encoded for VOD service provided via MPEG-DASH protocol.

ELECARD SOLUTION

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

RESULT

  • Fast evaluation of encoders
  • Improved quality of provided services
  • Ability to create custom test streams using command line mode
  • Automating the analysis of a large volume of files encoded with different parameters
  • Clear visualization of the stream
  • Encoding optimization for adaptive stream switching

SOLUTION IMPLEMENTATION

StreamEye Studio is used to check if the stream can be played on the clients’ STBs. Such parameters as bitrate, frame statistics, GOP alignment, HDR, variability of quantization parameter, structure of the headers, etc. are evaluated.

Feedback

"I've been working for about 20 years in VoD industry. It was always essential for me to have reliable tools to extract parameters of video bit stream and to make clear visualization.

Elecard StreamEye Studio is a set of very reliable, powerful and flexible tools which are very helpful in video analysis. I especially appreciate the ability to work in command line mode. This allows me to build some custom flows for particular tests. For example, I used StreamEye Console to test about 50 different settings of HEVC encoding to find the best one to produce stable MPEG-DASH stream for commercial STB decoder.

I must say the great advantage of using Elecard’s products is very fast and high-quality support from the company. It was very pleasant for me to see how Elecard’s engineers are willingly to make quick corrections to meet client’s needs and to improve the functionality of the software."
