has announced the release of its rugged IPTV tester supporting a variety of video compression formats, stream transportation protocols and network protocols. It is an ideal solution for maintaining IPTV services. The versatile IPTV tester tests network performance metrics and verifies network configurations in xDSL networks. The tester provides many kinds of test patterns including simulation, interception, series connection and straight connection.
This practical IPTV tester conducts analysis of the transport stream quality according to the three priority levels defined in the ISO TR101290 standard. It also tests parameters such as jitter, packet loss, transmission speed and MDI to ensure a stable network. GAO Comm’s IPTV tester can function as a STB emulator capable of intercepting multicast streams. It offers both widely-used MPEG TS and ISMA specifications for stream transportation. Its video format options include MPEG2, MPEG4, H.264, AVS, and VC-1. The tester displays real-time test results on its LCD screen for convenient and immediate result analysis.
