January 6th 2010 we let you know about three on-demand webinars offered by Tektronix as seen here.  Today, we're excited to let you know Tektronix has offered two more on-demand webinars.  One focused on MPEG Timing and Synchronization and the other on DTV & IPTV Monitoring - Reducing Downtime.  Both webinars are available via the Tektronix website via these links below: 


MPEG Timing and Synchronization: Two Keys to Video Quality

Whether your job is to design Encoders and Set Top Boxes (STBs), or to evaluate or integrate them, dealing effectively with timing concerns is essential. A Tektronix Buffer Analyzer can pinpoint the source of timing problems, and our new webinar covering topics such as Program Clock Reference (PCR) issues explains timing principles and their impact on video quality.  Click MPEG Timing and Synchronization to view the webinar. 


A Critical Quality-of-Service Ingredient in IPTV Networks
In today's IP video services, RF ingest is a critical part of the service flow. Now a new webinar explores IPTV delivery issues that can impact service. A veteran video engineer offers insights into some common network problems and introduces you to the Key Performance Indicators (KPI) that can guide your troubleshooting efforts in an IP Video network.  Click DTV & IPTV Monitoring - Reducing Downtime to see this webinar.

JDSU/Volicon Webinar: Seeing is Believing - Learn About the Best Measure of Video QoE Print E-mail
Written by Eric Heitz   
Tuesday, 12 January 2010 11:48

Volicon and JDSU are offering a complimentary webinar . . .

Topic:  Seeing is Believing: Using MPEG Monitoring and Alarm-Triggered Post Set Top Box Recording and Analysis to Deliver the Highest Digital Video QoE

When:  Thursday Jan 21st, 2010 at 6am PST *and* 10am PST. 

Register:  Register Here


Quality of experience (QoE) is emerging as the prevailing competitive factor for digital video operators. And there is no better measure of QoE for an operator than being able to see what the customer is actually viewing.

By combining MPEG monitoring with alarm-triggered post set top box recording and analysis, operators can obtain an accurate view of their customers' experiences; enabling them to focus troubleshooting and technicians on customer-impacting impairments.

Join speakers from JDSU and Volicon for a 45-minute presentation followed by live Q&A to learn more about:

  • Monitoring options, including stream vs content
  • Best practices for measuring QoS and determining their impact on QoE
  • Troubleshooting use cases using alarm-triggered post set top box recording and analysis

Straight from the minds of Tektronix a suite of 3 pre-recorded Webinars are available for you to view entirely at your own schedule.  These courses expose a basic understanding of MPEG, fault isolation, and quality of service toward digital services in the MPEG domain. 

Click each link below to be re-directed to the Tektronix website where you can view the material: 

Basic MPEG Overview / MPEG Made Easy
This introduction to MPEG covers Transport Streams, timing, and error types. Watch this webinar to learn about TR101-290 error types, and how it is giving way to ATSC Recommended Practice (A/78), a more meaningful measure of customer impacting events.


MPEG Troubleshooting in Cable Networks
A must for reviewing measurement guidelines and tools for testing MPEG in cable networks. This webinar covers many topics including the measurement guidelines know as ETSI TR 101 290.


Video over IP QoS (Network Monitoring of MPEG over a IP Transport) Webinar
This presentation on monitoring MPEG Transport Streams over IP networks describes test methodology used to ensure superior Quality of Service (QoS) in video.

Converged Backbone Transformation* REGISTER HERE

Date: Tuesday, January 19, 2010
With the explosion of bandwidth from IP-based video services such as IPTV, on-line video and 3G/4G mobile video, Service Providers must make additional investments in core networks to satisfy customer demands. These additional investments are not directly compensated by additional revenues however and many links and network elements remain underutilized. As a result, costs are rising faster than revenues, eroding profitability.

The Converged Backbone Transformation (CBT) solution changes the game for Service Providers by integrating the IP and optical layers into one single entity with common visibility, provisioning and protection to provide the lowest cost per bit delivery. This session will explain why the current mode of operation is inefficient, show how CBT provides a more efficient utilization of network resources and assets as well as how it achieves significant reductions in both CAPEX and OPEX.
