When it came time for Cox Media Group to decide on an analyzer to put into use for its ATSC 1.0 and ATSC 3.0 broadcast TV standards and channel-sharing arrangements, now that the repack process is underway, it went with a product from Triveni Digital.
CMG will use Triveni Digital’s StreamScope XM MT analyzer at 12 Cox Media Group stations making the transition.
“With the next-gen ATSC 3.0 TV standard being completed, we now start to look at what’s needed at the stations, and evaluating test and diagnostic equipment will be critical,” said Dave Siegler, VP/Technical Operations at Cox Media Group. “Triveni Digital’s solution makes it practical for us to support early deployment of ATSC 3.0 by providing us with a unified service analysis solution that ensures quick detection, isolation, and resolution of issues that may arise in either ATSC 1.0 and ATSC 3.0 infrastructures.”
Using the monitoring and analysis system from Triveni Digital, which functions as a full receiver, Cox Media Group stations may perform detailed analysis of ATSC 3.0 streams and data structures. StreamScope XM MT is able to analyze every demarcation point from DASH, ROUTE/MMT, and STLTP, and has recently added support for advanced RF analysis in both ATSC 1.0 and ATSC 3.0
“Preparing for the next phase of broadcasting can be complex, and broadcasters needs tools that support channel-sharing environments and simulcasting to ensure a smooth migration,” said Triveni VP/Sales & Marketing Ralph Bachofen “Cox Media Group is a longstanding customer of ours and always at the forefront of innovation. With our solution, the station group is well on its way to building an infrastructure that supports the complex service environment of the future.”
Triveni Digital will demonstrate its ATSC 3.0 digital TV metadata management, content delivery, and service quality assurance solutions at the 2018 NAB Show, April 9-12 at booth N1427.
