TSMonitor watches your broadcast interactive applications and subtitles/closed captions to make sure they are playing out correctly. It detects inaccuracies in output and timing and flags them immediately on a high-level overview page. An operator can then drill-down quickly to more detailed detailed diagnostics.

Receivers are virtualised within the user interface, complete with all necessary functionality.
Our ETV TSProcessor provides a range of functions for controlling ETV application content within a transport stream. Incoming transport streams can be analysed and ETV applications inspected, validated, ammended or removed to ensure they meet your standards.
