Evertz Showcases RF Probe Solution At NAB
Evertz Microsystems, a provider of media and entertainment technology solutions, will launch its RF Probe platform at next week’s NAB Show.
The RF Probe is an advanced high performance, real-time RF and Transport Stream (TS) monitoring solution giving RF operators new advanced capabilities for monitoring their RF facilities.
Evertz’ RF Probe gives RF operators the ability to monitor multiple RF sites from a single centralized location giving them a cost-effective solution that ensures maximum uptime for their RF infrastructures. With its ability to monitor multiple RF sites across the globe, the RF Probe is designed for both small and large teleports, direct-to-home (DTH) service providers, content providers and broadcasters.
The RF Probe features a compact 1RU form factor with the ability to monitor a comprehensive list of RF parameters, with additional features including an integrated spectrum analyzer, full TR101 transport stream analyzer and RF channel cycling. The RF Probe also uses RF-inSITE, a powerful data analytics engine for monitoring critical RF parameters over time.
This power troubleshooting tool gives operators the ability to compare the current performance of their RF systems to past performance giving them the ability to quickly identify potential performance issues.
In addition, the RF Probe features an intuitive web-based user interface. This enables operators to easily monitor signals remotely and configure operational thresholds that, along with notifications based on critical RF and TS parameters, provide operators with a low-cost flexible solution for monitoring remote RF sites.
“Many of our customers have RF infrastructures that span large geographic regions and they require a simple, reliable monitoring solution,” said Zakaria Alhaddad, Evertz product manager, RF Products at Evertz. “The RF Probe features a 1RU form factor but doesn’t sacrifice performance for size. The RF Probe, with its comprehensive ability to monitor all critical RF and TS parameters, combined with its simple user interface, is the industry’s leading RF monitoring solution.”
