TSReader

Simple but very powerful

TSReader is simple yet powerful MPEG Transport Stream Analyser. With an easy to use inteface it can be used for fault finding and inspection of any MPEG Transport Stream.

Reporting Tools

TSReader can be configured to monitor multi channel streams, alerting you to any problems, from no RF lock to low bitrate.

Windows Environment

TSReader runs on all 32 and 64 bit windows versions with very light CPU load.

TSWatcher

Multi RF Channel Monitoring Application

TSWatcher loops through multiple muxes, detects errors and generates emails allowing for immediate response of RF or IPTV failure.

DVB-T and UDP/RTP

Specifically designed to check for errors on DVB-T and UDP/RTP streams. Alarms can be set as level 1 or level 2 with unique thresholds.

Available Alarms

Alarms can be triggered on a range of different events such as - No RF Lock, continuity errors, scrambled elementary streams as well as a range of other options.

TBS 5590 Multi-standard Real-time Monitoring Probe

Multi Standard DVB

The TBS 5590 is a multi standard external TV Tuner that can receive DVB-S2X/S2/S/T2/T/C2/C/ASI/ISDB-T for watching, recording or analysing any MPEG TS stream.

USB 2.0 Interface

Easily connect the TBS 5590 to your PC or laptop via the USB 2.0 interface

Perfect partner for TSReader

Used in conjunction with TSReader software the TBS 5590 becomes an invaluable asset for any AV engineer.

TSReader Feature List

  • Decodes MPEG-2 tables with DVB, ATSC, ISDB, SCTE and Digicipher II extensions.
  • Decodes MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and H.264 (AVC) video in thumbnail format.
  • Decodes H.265 (HEVC) video in thumbnail format
  • Decodes VC-1/WM9 video in thumbnail format
  • Includes a BISS descrambler for DSNG use
  • Thumbnails can be exported as they are generated to JPEG files
  • High speed parallel PMT parser
  • Parallel stream decoding (thumbnails display very quickly)
  • Parses MPEG, A/52 (AC3) and DTS audio streams to show bitrate/mode settings
  • Parses AAC audio streams to show bitrate/mode settings
  • Generates scope-style thumbnails for MPEG, AC3 and AAC audio streams
  • Shows A/52 (AC3) dialog-normalization (dialnorm)
  • Records the transport stream to a file. Recordings can be in plain transport stream or ALP transport stream formats which provides lossless compression
  • Records an individual program to files with PAT/PMT regeneration using a very flexible file naming scheme
  • Records individual or multiple PIDs to a file
  • Records tables (MPEG sections) to a file
  • Records multiple programs from multiple channels within a multiplex
  • Decodes IP/DVB transmissions in MPE format with the MAC and IP destination addresses
  • Can save the payload from TCP & UDP transmissions and act as a multicast IP/DVB to UDP router.
  • PID usage graph with percentage displays for each PID
  • Actual bitrate on PIDs carrying PCR and estimated bitrates for non PCR carrying PIDs
  • PID graph is color coded to indicate unscrambled and scrambled PIDs
  • Counts continuity and TEI errors on mux and PID-by-PID basis
  • Export MPEG-2, extension, thumbnail and PID chart data to HTML
  • Export all data into XML or XMLTV formats for parsing by other applications
  • Can be controlled to run automatically using command line and control server options
  • Graph generation for many different stream statistics
  • View tables carried in a PID and their content in TSReader Professional
  • View user data carried within video streams and video start codes
  • EPG grid for steams containing EPG data such as ATSC, DVB and ISDB
  • Supports extended EPG data on Bell, Dish, Media Highway 2 and Sky Broadcasting
  • Multiple configurations and instances
  • Closed caption (EIA-608 and CEA-708) decoder along with a command-line decoder
  • ETR-290 style monitoring with email alarms
  • Stream forwarding to UDP and RTP or hardware devices such as DVB-ASI, SMPTE-310 and RF
