Polistream Xpect is perfect for 24/7 network supervision, automated equipment test and validation, and Control Room Monitoring of output signals. Polistream Xpect can be used as part of a Quality of Service maintenance regime or Service Level Agreement monitoring; providing early visibility of faults. Integration with Polistream MSX applications allows deep analysis of subtitle faults and with the addition of MSX Logger can provide RAID redundant storage of subtitles transmitted over an extended period of time for full conformance checking of accessibility for regulatory purposes.
The mosaic generated by Polistream Xpect is an easy-to-oversee multi view display of the decoded video, subtitles, audio bars and monitoring status. The mosaic is fully customisable using a drag-and-drop configuration tool and XML templates and supports multiple decoded DVB subtitles, closed captions, clocks and picture cells with custom updateable contents. Alarms generated by the Polistream Xpect monitoring function can be shown in the mosaic using LED style indicators or by red/yellow borders around the cells. The mosaic can be displayed across multiple HDMI/DVI/xVGA2 monitors and can be dynamically re-configured to support service switching or alternate subtitle languages, for example.
Polistream XPECT is supplied as a turnkey monitoring system. It includes all software and server hardware to support ASI and IP delivered single MPTS transport stream monitoring and viewing. The XPECT Monitoring System decodes the video, audio and ancillary data from a multiple programme transport stream and analyses the content to full TR 101 290 compliance. Additional tests for freeze, black frame and audio silence are performed. The XPECT Monitoring System includes stream logging, web GUI, UDP notifications and Network Monitoring System integration. Polistream XPECT is supplied as a 2RU unit, requiring 230/110V.
Alternative inputs for Cable, Satellite or Terrestrial signal inputs are available on custom request. Both SPTS and MPTS streams are supported. As supplied, a single MPTS (or 16 radio or 8 TV SPTS streams) may be monitored.
Additional streams can be supported on a single unit at an additional cost.
Polistream XPECT may also be supplied in a ‘bundle’ together with MSX Workstation or MSX Logger for a comprehensive subtitle monitoring, analysis and conformance solution.
