Validate IP streams in new ST2110 production facilities and studios
Lab testing of new ST2110/2022‑6 equipment
Remotely troubleshoot contribution feeds from multiple providers
The VB440 Appliance provides a breakthrough for the monitoring and analysis of high-bitrate broadcast media traffic as defined in SMPTE 2110 and SMPTE 2022-6 for core broadcasting networks, production studios, master control centers and broadcast vehicles and venues. In addition, JPEG-XS light compression is supported for analysis with add on licenses. The VB440 Appliance is the perfect blend of benchtop analyzer and 24/7 monitor that enables production and contribution teams to continuously survey all layers of media transportation on an IP network and facilitates quick rectification of potential problems.
Based around Sencore’s VideoBRIDGE IP Probes and backed by years of deep IP knowledge, the VB440 Appliance provides dual-100Gb Ethernet connectivity with monitoring of up to 80Gbps of streams. Up to 8 users can simultaneously analyze dozens of streams in real-time and view results via the full motion, web-based HTML5 user interface on any modern browser.
On all monitored streams, the VB440 Appliance provides industry-leading analytics including network timing, video and HDR colorimetry, audio metering and ancillary data presentation. SMPTE2022-7 redundancy is monitored with an intuitive side-by-side path delay display when the VB440 Appliance is connected to both primary and backup networks. The ancillary data analysis provides engineering views of things like captions, subtitles, SCTE104 ad insertion messages and many other ANC types.
