Telestream’s Inspect 2110 Monitoring Solution Offers Enhanced Visibility For Broadcast Engineers

New 180Gbps capable platform, with flexible software options, increases diagnostic efficiency with automated network-wide monitoring to proactively notify engineers of issues.

As Broadcast media networks transition from SDI to IP, engineers and operators can lose visibility of the high volume of activity on their network and the continual changes to their content. Inspect 2110 ensures reliability within hybrid SDI-over-IP and ST 2110 deployments by utilizing a “monitoring by exception” approach to proactively notify engineers of any quality issues within facilities and across networks. The latest version features a 180Gbps bandwidth-capable platform and an entirely new way to think about the Inspect 2110 probe.

The offering is now configurable based on bandwidth monitoring needs and offers options that allow it to be easily tailored to specific applications in contribution monitoring, multiple-studio monitoring, and live and production applications for monitoring multiple vehicles from a single location. New features include a high-performance platform, an audio and video remote viewer, automatic detection of frozen and black frames, and compliance measurements for loudness (CALM).

Users can click on the “View in PRISM” button to redirect an anomalous IP stream to a chosen PRISM media analysis instrument, where an engineer can see and analyze the problem in depth. These deep dive diagnostics provide one-click access to fine-grained debugging of the video, audio, and ancillary streams as well as, crucially, the PTP timing.

Inspect 2110 will also monitor PTP behavior such as verifying PTP timing signal accuracy, validate that proper video and audio signals are being carried in each stream, confirm that redundant streams are identical and in sync, and identify any stream that is out of compliance with applicable standards.
