Real-Time A/V Quality Monitoring

RTM is an Automated, Quality-of-Experience (QoE) Monitor, which measures the quality between two points. It does this after the decoder (STB) has had a chance to hide (or fix) the problems, which is exactly what the audience sees. RTM measures the video quality, audio quality, audio or video delay (offset), audio program loudness and VANC data accuracy. If any of these drop below a preset threshold, then an alarm is triggered and the sequences are saved. RTM saves valuable man-hours by alarming on all errors which affirms what the operator already has seen or alerts them to a potential problem which was missed.
