Inspect 2110 monitors ST 2110 IP video networks providing the automated visibility and diagnostics operations teams need. Broadcast production is changing from SDI to IP video bringing several benefits in flexibility, scale and efficiency. However that flexibility brings operational challenges to ensure the IP video network is working as expected.
Inspect 2110 monitors ST 2110 video streams across a production or contribution network to make sure they are present and working as expected. A notification will be triggered if the format, video, audio or data has errors or differs from the SDP file. Thumbnails provide visual indication of program status, and penalty box provides immediate visibility of error conditions for diagnostics.
PTP timing and synchronization is critical for IP video networking, and Inspect 2110 verifies that synchronization is operating and correctly sync’d across video, audio and data streams. Inspect 2110 simplifies automated detection of PTP issues and diagnostics, saving time and reducing errors.
Inspect 2110 software uses a high performance container based architecture supporting up to dual 100G Ethernet in a server configuration now, plus virtual and cloud configurations near term. IQ and Prism engineers worked together to ensure the latest monitoring technology works well within the IQ Solution ecosystem and directly links to Prism for IP analysis.
Inspect 2110 is API native providing complete access for automation, IQ IVMS ASM management and 3rd party system support. The IQ IVMS ASM management system will support Inspect 2110 in a future release to provide program correlated views across the production network. IQ monitoring solutions now include ST 2110, ST 2022-6, MPEG TS and ABR probes supported by IQ IVMS ASM management for end-to-end program correlated views, reporting, management and diagnostics.
