The Mividi TSM Probe is a compact system that runs Mividi TSM100 video streaming monitoring software and TSM Web remote management software on an Intel NUC PC. It receives data via IP interface and supports most common streaming protocols including TS over UDP, RTP, HTTP, HLS, RTMP, RTSP and MMS. The size of the device is only 4.5 x 1.9 x 4.4 inches, and it can be used for remote monitoring of IPTV and OTT video services in the proximity of customers.

TSM Probe Application

Broadcast, IPTV and OTT Video Monitoring Probe

Mividi TSM Probe is a small device with powerful features. It can monitor and analyze transport streams, log errors, and send error alarms. It can also transcode the original video data and transmits the video streams back to the NOC for viewing. Additionally, it contains a web server for remote access of analysis data and control of the device using a web browser.

Because the device is very compact that weighs less than 2 pounds (or 1 kg), it can be used in the field to collect quality of service (QoS) data near customer premises. It is also a cost-effective solution for transport stream analysis and monitoring for stations with a small number of streams to monitor.

The Mividi TSM Probe uses an IP interface to receive video data. It supports TS over UDP, RTP or HTTP broadcast protocols, and HLS, RTMP, RTSP, and MMS web streaming protocols. It supports DVB and ATSC broadcast standards, supports MPEG-2, H.264/AVC, and H.265/HEVC video encoding formats, as well as all commonly used audio formats.

The TSM Probe can simultaneously monitor up to 20 channels and transcode up to 10 channels. Any transport stream errors are logged in a database for review and report. Alarms can be triggered by specific errors selected by users. Remote access and control of the device is provided by the TSM Web software.

Turn-key Solution with a Mini PC

The TSM Probe uses the Intel NUC as the hardware platform. The Mividi TSM100 and TSMWeb software is preinstalled and fully configured so it is ready to use out of box. It takes the input from the IP interfaces and contains a wireless network interface which may be used for data management.

Probe for STB Monitoring

To monitoring video signal in the secondary hubs and home premises, the signal may be scrambled and requires special decoders like set top box (STB) to decode and render the video. In the case, a different probe is required to monitor the HDMI signal out from the STB. Multiple STBs maybe connected to the same probe to create multi-viewer display. Because HDMI interface can only send one program at a time, a special software app can be used to control the STB to tune to different channels so multiple sets of video programs are monitored by the probe in round-robin rotation mode.

Comprehensive TS Analysis

The TSM Probe provides comprehensive TS analysis for MPEG transport streams. It supports MPEG-2, H.264/AVC, and H.265/HEVC video encoding formats, as well as commonly used audio formats including MP3, AAC, AAC plus, and AC3. It can also decode DVB SI and ATSC PSIP metadata tables and perform standard compliance checks on these data.

The system performs detailed TS error checks based on DVB test guideline TR 101 290 and reports all three priority level errors. It analyzes transport stream program structure, measures PID bitrate, performs PCR, and buffer analysis, detects any black and frozen frames, and monitors missing audio and video element streams.

In addition to MPEG transport layer testing, the system also performs IP and HTTP layer testing, including MDI measurement on IP streams. It measures video segment downloading parameters and monitors delay on HLS input streams, as well as HLS playlist syntax analysis.

All errors and alarms are logged in the database and can be reviewed at a later time. Reports can be generated to summarize TS status over a period of time.

Error Logs and Alarms

The system provides multiple ways of sending error alarms, including email, visual displays on a multiviewer screen, and audio sound. The alarms can be triggered by errors selected by users, such as loss of input, audio or video components, black or frozen frames, etc.

Remote Access

An optional web server is available on the probe for remote access to test results, include video thumbnails, TS analysis results, error and alarm logs. The web server can be accessed using a standard web browser.

The system provides multiple ways of viewing the conditions of video services remotely. Video key frames are decoded and may be displayed on a remote monitor.

Central network management software is also being developed to manage multiple TSM Probes across the network. The central server provides a URL link to individual probes for status checks, collects alarms, and compares the QoS value of videos at different location.
