smartSCOPE - Deep Packet Media Inspection & Network Analyzer

The smartSCOPE Deep Packet Media Inspection & Network Analyzer is a high density 24/7 analysis platform for IP flows in live production and delivery networks.

IP flows can frequently suffer from packet loss, jitter, encoding impairments and transport violations to name a few. Having
the right monitoring and visualization technologies in place to proactively identify impairments and service disruption is
imperative to the success of the operation. The smartSCOPE incorporates the essential analysis and decoding processing
necessary to alert the operation tiers of service and packet transport related impairments for ST2110/ST2022 production flows, linear MPEG services and over-the-top adaptive bitrate (OTT/ABR) defined streams.

At the heart of the smartSCOPE, packets are processed for service compliance with also the unique ability to analyze the conditions of the delivery network. This dual focused analysis approach provides a clear demarcation between video delivery and video processing thereby drastically reducing the mean time to repair (MTTR) and eliminating finger pointing between transport and processing departments.

NEW: Support of live production formats

In addition to existing transmission format support, smartSCOPE now also supports SMPTE ST2110-20/21/30/40 and ST2022-6/7 live production video formats. As a result, smartSCOPE allows integrated monitoring of both compressed and
uncompressed streams in high capacity hybrid systems. This new approach to signal and network probing provides
full confi dence and precision analysis for operations and engineering over managed and unmanaged networks. Scalable
to over 100 services in a single instance, it supplies a much needed solution to broadcasters leveraging COTS server architectures.
