Telestream Extends Inspect 2110 Monitoring Platform
Telestream has unveiled a major new upgrade to its Inspect 2110 monitoring platform.
New to the platform is monitoring of ST 2022-6 data streams which, when added to the existing capability of monitoring ST 2110 video, audio and data essences within facilities and across networks, provides a means of assuring reliability within hybrid SDI-over-IP and ST 2110 deployments. This new capability is said to simplify operations and operational costs. Also added in this release is enhanced monitoring of primary and secondary streams in applications which employ 2022-7 for stream redundancy.
Hand in hand with ST 2110 monitoring is the addition of support for NMOS IS-04 and IS-05 APIs, which provide a means to discover and register devices and to handle connection management easily. Also, this capability enhances Inspect 2110’s ability to integrate within Software Defined Networks (SDNs).
Interoperability and discoverability means additional products and software offerings can be quickly added to the monitored network, saving deployment and development resources.
Telestream has also increased the Inspect 2110 platform’s scalability to handle the growing numbers of essence flows and program streams in hybrid ST 2022-6 and ST 2110 deployments. In this upgrade, added to the dual 100Gbps interfaces on the Inspect 2110 platform, are 40Gbps options to assure easy interfacing among varied network topologies.
“As live decentralized production of content becomes more and more prevalent and ST 2110 essences create hundreds or thousands of additional elements to monitor and diagnose, the Inspect 2110 solution, coupled with Telestream’s Prism probes, enables a broader and deep analysis of IP content, PTP synchronisation and hybrid networks,” says Agostino Canepa, director of product management at Telestream.
