The MultiScreen 5!

DVB / DTH / OTT / Mobile / IP analysing system for UNLIMITED number of TV and Radio channels

Stream MultiScreen - system is intended for simultaneous visual and instrumental monitoring for unlimited number of channels in real-time.

Having been based on successful combination of versatile features including multi-channel (unlimited number of sources) and multi-format (HD/SD-SDI, IP, DVB-ASI, Composite combined in a single server) abilities with high-level reliability Stream MultiScreen system has been implemented in the projects of the largest Headend operators, Satellite and Cable operators, TV Channels and OTT operators.

Instrumental monitoring of unlimited number of channels

The system performs the intellectual analysis, generates warning events, logging and video/audio indication for the following video and audio stream parameters:

Quality of Experience (QoE):

  • Video loss
  • Frozen video
  • Black frame
  • Audio loss
  • Audio signal level: overload
  • Audio signal level: silence
  • R-128 Loudness Level
  • Loudness Splash
  • Loudness Short Term
  • Loudness True Peak
  • Clipping audio
  • Wrong field order detection

Quality of Service (QoS):

  • Video aspect ratio
  • Teletext page loss
  • Sync loss
  • Signal loss
  • Service lost
  • PID lost
  • ETR 290 (level 1 and level 2)
  • EIT actual section loss
  • EIT error
  • EIT other error
  • PID scrambled
  • Transport Stream Bitrate
  • Service Bitrate
  • Teletext and subtitling (only MPEG-2 TS)
  • HLS Transport error
  • HLS Low Throughput

Features and Benefits:

  • EPG monitorning
  • Round Robin
  • Ability of on-the-fly change of video windows arrangement in displayed configuration
  • Visual warning

What do we use for inputs?

For operation with Composite, SD/HD SDI, DVB-ASI input signals in Stream MultiScreen systems we use multi-channel input cards (Stream Labs’ production). The combination of these cards allows to build monitoring servers with almost any types of input interfaces and for any tasks. Severs can be in 19-inch rack mountable with Dual PSU.

  • Stream MS416 – 16 independent analog inputs and 16-line stereo-audio inputs.
  • Stream MS2 & MS4 – 2/4 independent software switchable inputs DVB-ASI/SD-SDI/CVBS. 
  • Stream MH4LM – 4 independent software switchable inputs DVB-ASI/SD-SDI/HD-SDI/CVBS.
  • Stream MH8 – 8 independent software switchable inputs DVB-ASI/SD-SDI/HD-SDI/CVBS.

It is also possible to use any DirectShow API support input cards or third party cards. The combination of these cards allows to build monitoring servers with almost any types of input interfaces and for any tasks.
