|Transport Stream Monitor|
The Imagine Communications® ASI-STAR® is a portable, battery-powered transport stream monitor that provides functionality and versatility that distinguish it from other handheld test and measurement products. The first professional handheld device supporting the ISDB-Tb platform for the South American Region digital television market, the ASI-STAR allows users to record and play out test streams in ASI format, as well as monitor for ETR 290 priority 1 alarms. Embedded PSIP and SI tables can be viewed in the transport stream, allowing for simplified verification of transmitted data.
The device’s powerful array of features includes error counting and monitoring of bandwidth per program, total or null packets. ASI transport stream files are recorded onto a removable compact flash card, which can be removed and used in a PC for file storage or transfer.
The lightweight ASI-STAR is ideal for equipment installation or troubleshooting signal path issues related to ISDB-Tb, DVB-ASI or SMPTE-310 formatted transport streams.
