StreamLabs MultiScreen TS 20 MPEG TS Monitoring Software

StreamLabs MultiScreen TS 20 MPEG TS Monitoring Software
Stream MultiScreen TS system is designed for real time playback and control of several MPEG TS (SPTS/MPTS) streams simultaneously on one or several computer screens (plasmas, LCD-television sets). The ability to create random video window configurations, place audio indicators and display other informational elements on the monitor allows to configure the system for carrying out any operating tasks. Stream MultiScreen TS also manages incoming video and audio signal parameters, and provides relevant messages and alerts.

Stream MultiScreen software can operate almost on any computer. The back-end service of the software is protected by the hardware USB dongle. The front-end services/client programs (layout editor and log-viewer) are not licensed and can be easily installed on any office computers/laptops.

Additional equipment is not required when MPEG TS streams are monitored using IP interface. When MPEG streams are monitored using ASI interface, any DekTec cards can be used.


Monitoring features

* Multiple monitors support. Up to 4 monitors (up to 2 monitors in standard configuration) connection via VGA / DVI / HDMI interface to one Stream MultiScreen TS device;
* Vertical monitor arrangement support;
* Displaying monitor resolution can reach: 1600 x 1200 pixels (VGA output) or Full HD 1920 x 1080 pixels (HDMI / DVI-I (DVI-D) output);
* Final signal image display in standard television CVBS / S-Video / YUV format with 720 x 576 pixels resolution via video card output.

Core graphic design features

Extremely user-friendly Stream Client Manager application allows to create window configurations on any common PC. By using simple drag/drop action, built-in window layout editor helps you quickly create a necessary configuration, including signal control parameters assignment, amount of service information supplied to user, clock, timer and sound indicators display.

* Random video windows position and size. The maximum size a video window can reach is the full-screen monitor size. 16:9 frame ratio support;
* Unlimited number of layers for objects layout (windows, PPM, clocks, captions etc.);
* Brightness, contrast and saturation can be adjusted for every video window separately;
* Random audio PPM sound indicator position;
* Random window text (title) location, font, size and colour;
* Digital clock output with random position, font, size, colour and format of displayed data (time/date);
* Several analog clock types;
* Time zone adjustment for digital and analog clocks;
* Each system graphic object can have a specified outline (width, colour) and background (colour or image from file (bmp, tga, tif)).

Controlled signal parameters

"Video Server" system modules log the following events:

* Configuration change;
* Video Loss (video fallout / recovery);
* Audio Loss (basic audio stream fallout / recovery, level overshoot, low signal level);
* Frozen Video;
* Black Frame;
* Blocking Frame;
* GPI input change;
* Edh-errors reports for SDI-signal;
* Error in "continuity counter" field (for MPEG_TS source).

A schedule is composed to check the emergency alert response (with alarm analysis time span indication) with an option for custom response settings for each event.

The system operation log information is constantly updated and saved in client's (operator's) application, where it is also possible to make a query from any available "Video Server" module in order to obtain selective information at random system operation time range.

The system operation log features the following data:

* Time and date of alarm response start and end;
* Alarm signal duration;
* Alarm signal type;
* Multicast group name, IP address and port, PID stream;
* Server name, from which the alarm signal came;
* Service information: specified alarm response threshold values, signal operating values, etc.

The system can be configured for response to any emergency alert in the following ways:

* Visual (graphic): changing colour and frame width;
* Sounding an alarm signal via computer Sound Blaster;
* Alarm receipt confirmation by pressing a button or equivalent key in the client software;
* E-mailing a message to specified address.


The quantity of MPEG TS streams processed simultaneously depends on their format and size (MPEG2\H.264 and SD\HD) and the processor capacity.

For ex. For Intel i940 processor:
MPEG-2 format - 50 video windows (processor load - 50% just display)
H.264 format - 24 video windows (processor load - 50% just display, 70% - display and alarms analysis)
H.264 HD - 8 video windows (processor load - 50% just display)

The 4 Gb RAM is required if all the alarms are turned on.
