IP Network Probe
The VB220 Probe is the perfect choice in any network where digital video is carried across an IP-based infrastructure. This network service tool is ideal for both pure IP networks and hybrid networks (HFC, DVB-T2) with IP transport streams such as in digital cable and terrestrial networks. The VB220 probe hardware is custom-designed and built to telco-grade standards for maximum reliability and minimum maintenance. The VB220 can be paired with a full set of interface blades to cover signal formats such as DVB-T/T2, DVB-S/S2, DVB-C/C2, QAM-B, 8VSB and ASI. It is possible to monitor OTT/ABR streams at master play-out or at the CDN origin server in all common streaming formats using the OTT option.
Streaming formats supported currently include Microsoft Smoothstream, Apple HLS, Adobe HDS, MPEG-DASH and basic RTMP.
