As media companies transition video operations to IP networking technology at scale, a more automated approach to monitoring the health of the video network can be achieved. Like large scale MPEG stream monitoring on IP delivery networks, Telestream now offers Inspect 2110 for automated ST 2110 video monitoring providing the visibility, verification and alert by exception that operations teams require. While Inspect 2110 monitors the video network at scale, a simple click-to-view enables deep analysis of any stream in PRISM waveform monitor, providing a complete ST 2110 monitoring and diagnostics solution.
Automated ST 2110 monitoring and video network diagnostics
Detailed video analysis with industry leading wavewform monitor
PTP sync generator and fail-over solutions keep the network timed
Building a fully redundant 2022-7 video network with independent paths requires setup confirmation and long-term operation verification. PRISM’s deep analysis of 2022-7 redundancy helps commission and validate a proper redundant network. Once operational, Inspect 2110 can automate monitoring that redundant paths are accurate, similar, and in sync together, providing alert by exception of issues for deep diagnostics by PRISM.
PTP can be a challenging part of ST 2110 implementation. The SPG provides proven, reliable, and accurate PTP timing and synchronization with support for ST2059-2 and AES67. PRISM assists with initial validation to establish a reliable system using PTP. Once PTP is running, Inspect 2110 monitors video timing and PTP sources to ensure primary and redundant feeds are synchronized. In the case of a PTP issue or grandmaster failover, PRISM provides deep analysis.
Using the NMOS capability and information in PRISM, customers can dive into SDP file details to ensure –in a manual way– that the video is working and matches the SDP file as expected. The Inspect 2110 can automate this to ensure that SDP files are accurate and ready for network expansion.
As networks scale to 100’s or 1000’s of ST 2110 programs, manually watching a monitor wall isn’t practical. Inspect 2110 can automate health monitoring across large numbers of streams in your network. Using 100GE network connections the Inspect 2110 can programmatically go through each of your important flows to ensure they are accurate, the right formats, synchronized and have the audios and meta data expected. And if there’s an issue, the integration with PRISM can be used to dive into any problem remotely.
