The IPQ1000 is a handheld MPEG transport stream analyzer focused on making video over IP more intuitive and easier to diagnose. Quick touchscreen selection of source data from ASI or IP can be decoded and displayed on the LCD screen. Data is also available as MPEG tables in a tree view. Bandwidth is measured by PID, program, and stream.
The IPQ1000 contains a comprehensive alarm engine based on the ETSI TR-101-290 and ATSC-A/78 standards. An MPEG2 decoder and an optional Dolby D decoder provide audio and video to the internal LCD touchscreen and speakers for quick verification of your audio / video source.
Dual Ethernet ports for video over IP allows the device to be inserted in line with a suspected problem device. The IPQ1000 will identify all IP traffic by source IP address, destination IP address and destination port number.
The Source Display lists all sources discovered by the IPQ1000. Select the source you want to view on the other tabs by touching the line item you are interested in. When selected, the source will be highlighted as seen here. The bandwidth for the interface (ASI or IP) can be seen at the bottom of the screen. Each source represents a separate transport stream that can be evaluated in the following tabs.
The Tables Display lists all tables contained in the selected transport stream. Each table is expandable to list the contents of each table. Just touch anywhere on the table of interest to expand the table. The color of the table will change to indicate that an alarm has triggered for that particular table.
The Details Display lists all available programs in the source selected in the sources tab. The bottom part of this display contains a second tab bar where you can choose to display an electronic program guide or the picture of the selected program.
The IPQ1000 can show a guide generated from the tables. This display will show the channel name, events for each channel in their respective time slot, and the details of each event can be displayed by selecting the event of interest. The details will be displayed under the guide in the info box.
The picture can be display by selecting the program you want to view in the program list above the picture.
