JDSU unveils video test systems

JDSU has introduced a digital and IP video monitoring system allowing operators to detect irregularities from the core to the network edge remotely. The system provides 24/7, simultaneous monitoring of more than 250 video streams and tests QoS at all access coverage points in a video network. The company has also provided new capabilities which eliminate manual testing and facilitate effective ad programming. SimulTrak, a gigabit Ethernet interface module, enables a single technician to simultaneously analyze and monitor hundreds of signals, eliminating the need to manually check each of the hundreds of MPEG-2 transport streams in a gigabit Ethernet link. Its Digital Program Insertion capability gives network operators added visibility into the digital ad insertion process.
