StationView™ presents television operators with Simple, Effective Monitoring, utilizing the power and flexibility of SNMP without the complexity and hassle of heavy network management systems. Perfect for remote transmitter monitoring, StationView consolidates alarms and status from up to 15 remotely located DVStation probes into a concise dashboard showing RF status, TS bandwidth alarms, transport stream health and service/content verification results. Audio and Video status is also summarized for each service. The ECP VQI is a video quality measurement tool that scans all channels, identifies common video impairments such as macro-blocking, tiling and freeze frame, then combines them to a single, integrated metric. Results are consolidated across all channels and remote sites – making it easy to identify when and where video quality issues strike.

DVStor² offers one of the highest storage densities in the industry, with a capacity of up to 48TB, assuring reliable performance. RAID-6 and redundant power supplies further protect archived content, making it perfect for Disaster Recovery at a remote site, Compliance Recording, network delay or delayed broadcast.

DVStation-IP³ is a complete solution for video over IP quality assurance. It monitors all multicast and unicast streams on a fully loaded Gigabit ink. Supporting SPTS and MPTS, it provides unmatched coverage for IP, Transport Stream, SI and content. It also decodes video thumbnails for all services – encoding metadata, running blackout and freeze-frame tests.

DVStation-Mini² DVB-T monitors DVB-T transmitters and SFN networks, provides RF measurements and TS analysis, and video service support for H.264 SD and HD.
