  • No license
  • Disabled
  • No Signal
  • Scrambled
  • Black Video
  • Frozen Video

Data Traffic Monitoring

  • IP layer traffic status
  • TS layer traffic status

Custom Layout and Labeling

TeleSight supports custom video layout and labeling. Video window can have different window sizes. Each output video can be positioned into any of the custom size window as long as there is no overlap. The video window label is also customizable. Users can select to display the service name decoded from the TS SDT tables, or the program title decoded from XDS data, or a custom name as the label of a video window. Different label color can be selected for different input sources.

Video Display Aspect Ratio and Alignment

TeleSight automatically adjust the video display aspect ratio according to the pixel aspect ratio of the video stream and the video display window size. Users can also select to align the video to the left side of a video window, or center it.

Analog and Digital Clocks

TeleSight supports both analog and digital on screen clocks. These clocks are fully resizable according to the window size they reside in, and they can be enabled or disabled separately.

Note: These clocks can be synchronized to a NTP server for better accuracy.

Analysis/Test Report and History

Test summary of each source at system, video and audio level

Detailed test message of each error/warning type

Monthly, Daily and Hourly test history (error/warning count) over the past 12 months

Stream Capture

TeleSight supports two different stream capture modes:

Automatic stream capture on error
Users can enable capture on error for system, video and audio layer tests, and specify the maximum auto capture size of a source.

Manual stream capture
Users can manually start and stop stream capture on a selected source.

Note: Input data before de-multiplexing are captured in both capture modes, except that RTP header can be dropped in manual mode.
