    • ISDB 1seg
  • analysis of all PSI/SI tables up to the last bit
  • tree-view of all PIDs in transport stream
  • SAMalyzer is available in 3 different editions, the ATSC-, DVB- and ISDB edition

PSI/SI Table Analysis
  • listing of all PSI/SI tables found in the transport stream
  • detailed analysis of every particular instance of all supported PSI/SI tables
  • detailed decoding and display of decoded data and data explanations in a comfortable tree-view
  • the tree-view gets mutually synchronized with a data grid showing the original data as hexadecimal representation
Transport Stream Analyzer
SI Table Analysis
Announced PIDs
  • listing of all content PIDs incl. exact purpose
  • in case of audio or video PIDs many additional information gets displayed which gets extracted from the actual audio and payload, such as
    • video encoding
    • video size,
    • frame rate
    • audio encoding
    • sampling rate
    • number of channels
EPG Viewer
  • analyzes and renders all types of EITs found in the transport stream
  • permits to adapt the time stamps from UTC as used in the PSI tables to the local time zone for more convenient display

In-depth Analysis of Transport Stream Snapshots
  • a snapshot from the current received Transport Strom gets created on the remote monitoring probe via triggering of an appropriate SNMP command
  • the TS snapshot gets transmitted via FTP from the monitoring probe to the PC of the system engineer
  • by using of the SAMalyzer tools the system engineer gets enabled to analyse the TS in any regard
  • problems/errors can be analysed very fast, very comfortable and very cost efficient
In-depth Analysis of recorded Transport Stream
  • the recording tool of SAMcorder records a TS from a live source
  • the recorded TS gets analyzed by the SAMalyzer application
