IP and QAM/8VSB Monitoring Probe
Sencore has extended its award-winning VideoBRIDGE™ product line with the launch of the VB12-RF, a highly portable RF/IP monitoring appliance for terrestrial and cable applications. With complete ETR101-290 analysis and alarming, the VB12-RF includes an interface for RF, ASI and IP in a compact and ruggedized chassis smaller than most laptop computers.
Designed for the rigors of real-world use, the VB12-RF is smaller and lighter than any comparable monitoring/troubleshooting solution. The VB12-RF can monitor 10 IP SPTS/MPTS services simultaneously and can be optionally expanded to support a maximum of 50 services.
Providing the field engineer with all of the interfaces needed for broadcast or IP analysis at any location in the transmission chain of both cable and terrestrial broadcast operations, the VB12-RF requires no external equipment or power supply and is able to withstand harsh operating conditions.
The VB12-RF incorporates many of the most advanced and patented technologies from the VideoBRIDGE End-to-End monitoring system. The product features an integrated web server and can easily be installed as part of a multi-probe system with a central server. For on-site analysis, an engineer can use the VB12-RF’s interface to measure directly in the field or capture the input signal for later use in the lab. The product can be left in the field for continuous monitoring and can easily be controlled remotely with the VideoBRIDGE Controller.
