Ultra-Portable IP/RF Monitoring Probe

VideoBRIDGE Nomad Pro
With support for almost all modern broadcast delivery technologies, Nomad Pro is the Swiss Army knife of digital media monitoring. It enables instant understanding and deep analytics of OTT multiscreen streams, IP multicasts, SDIoIP, ASI, satellite, terrestrial and cable sources. Nomad Pro covers all the monitoring needs encountered in hybrid IP multicast, OTT and RF networks. It is the ultimate, all-in-one and rugged monitoring and analysis solution for the technician on the move.
 
The Nomad Pro features an abundance of inputs including optical/electrical Gigabit Ethernet, ASI in/out, cable RF, terrestrial RF, DVB-S/S2 satellite and external 1PPS GPS time-reference. There are two versions of Nomad Pro - one for ATSC including an ATSC/QAM-A/B/C RF input and one for DVB including a DVB-T/T2/DVB-C RF input.
 
As media delivery technologies become more and more complex, using Nomad Pro will give invaluable insight into signal behaviors without the need for deep operator knowledge. The comprehensive IP and RF analysis tools in Nomad Pro are ideal for understanding system performance and finding issues regardless of the media transported. 
 
Cut from a single brick of aluminum, Nomad Pro sets a new standard for both finish and ruggedness. It is also of very light weight and is the perfect companion to a laptop.
