R&S®TSStream Multi-TS Streaming Software

Streaming of MPEG transport streams over IP

  • Overview

Key Facts

  • Total streaming bit rate ≥ 5 Gbit/s
  • More than 128 transport streams simultaneously
  • All MPEG transport stream formats

Brief Description

R&S®TSStream is used to play multiple MPEG transport streams simultaneously over a single IP interface. All transport streams are output as a seamless loop. R&S®TSStream is ideal for feeding data into the R&S®CLG and R&S®SLG multichannel TV signal generators and for testing IPTV equipment.

Features & Benefits

  • Streaming of multiple MPEG transport streams over IP
  • Seamless playout at the MPEG level
  • Convenient operation thanks to straightforward graphical user interface

Brief Description

R&S®TSStream is used to play multiple MPEG transport streams simultaneously over a single IP interface. All transport streams are output as a seamless loop. R&S®TSStream is ideal for feeding data into the R&S®CLG and R&S®SLG multichannel TV signal generators and for testing IPTV equipment.

R&S®TSStream multi-TS streaming software streams a number of MPEG transport stream files simultaneously over a single IP interface. The individual transport streams result in a high overall bit rate. To make the streams available on a standard PC, the R&S®TSStream software does not play the transport stream files directly from the hard disk but first loads them into the RAM. The maximum number and length of the transport streams depends solely on the PC's available RAM.

For uninterrupted operation, TV receivers require a continuous signal. This is why R&S®TSStream plays out all transport stream files at the MPEG level in a seamless loop. The PCR, PTS, DTS and continuity counter parameters are continuously restamped. When a transport stream file contains a seamless elementary stream, the receiver even delivers an interruption-free video and audio signal.

R&S®TSStream is especially suitable for feeding data into the R&S®CLG cable load generator and R&S®SLG satellite load generator. This makes it possible to reproducibly simulate real-world cable TV network configurations and satellite transponder assignments in the lab. R&S®TSStream can also be used as a signal source to test IPTV equipment.

R&S®TSStream features an intuitive graphical user interface. Status, memory occupancy and processor load are continuously displayed. Drag & drop operation makes it easier to work with a large number of transport streams. A special feature is the import function for configuration files from the R&S®CLG and R&S®SLG, which quickly and easily adopts these instruments' settings in R&S®TSStream .

    • Feeding of data into the R&S®CLG and the R&S®SLG
    • Simulation of real-world network configurations in the lab
    • Testing and stress testing of IPTV equipment
  • Seamless playout at the MPEG level
    • Interruption-free receiver operation by restamping PCR, PTS, DTS and continuity counter in all transport streams
    • Channel scan function test using transport streams with NIT
    • Service-level receiver tests using transport streams with continuous elementary stream
  • Convenient operation thanks to straightforward graphical user interface
    • Overview of current transport stream status, total streaming bit rate, memory occupancy and processor load
    • Intuitive drag & drop operation
    • Import of R&S®CLG/R&S®SLG configuration files
