Monitoring 

Headend monitoring system is more complex and provides detailed information to a headend Engineer about issues that he may be facing.

  1. Videowall for MSO can be one to four panels.
  2. Penalty box panel or display area that shows channels with errors but does not rotate channels, meaning PB box channels are static until fixed.
  3. Black frame, stuck frame, no audio detection, no video detection and this is already done.
  4. Missing SI tables (PAT/PMT)
  5. Missing secondary audio track when PAT shows multiple audio tracks
  6. MPEG video quality inspection where we analyze the video and report Important video quality issues and this will be carefully managed so 1000’s of useless alerts are not sent.
  7. Email or SMS text messaging on issues with update via webpage showing current details.
