Description

 

Complete DVB-T and DVB-T2 Analysis, from RF down to the Video.

ENENSYS ReFeree T2 allows to monitor DVB-T and DVB-T2 parameters (RF, T2 frame structure, PLP parameters), whatever the DVB-T (MFN/SFN...) or DVB-T2 transmission mode (Single PLP, Multi PLP, SFN/MISO. ..).

As forerunner on DVB-T2, ENENSYS proposes a real time application, capable to monitor simultaneous RF signal & Transport Stream content. Monitoring screens can be totally customized.

In its basic version, the ReFeree T2 features live stream capture capabilities for baseband stream (T2-MI or MPEG2-TS) recording. The application also integrates a video decoder enabling real-time decoding of any unencrypted services (SD, HD MPEG-2/4, H264) within the DVB-T2 stream.

To facilitate your analysis, ENENSYS RFScope plug-in includes a specific screen gathering the main RF parameters in real-time: Rotated Constellation, Impulse response, SNR level, LDPC iterations, BER monitoring... Depending on the received signal, this screen automatically adapts to DVB-T or DVB-T2 parameters.

With the TS Analyzer plug-in, the Transport Stream carried by the DVB-T signal, or even contained inside the selected PLP of the DVB-T2 stream can be analyzed. PSI/SI tables are parsed and displayed (including Private Table parsing). The 3 priority levels of ETR290 are implemented. Bitrate can be monitored globally and for each service. Customizable alarms are also available.

Finally, the DVB-T2 standard has defined the DVB-T2 Modulator Interface, or T2-MI. The T2MI plug-in software gives access to the most complete T2MI Multi-PLP analyzer: L1 specific screen (pre & post signalling), T2 Frame composition, T2 timestamp, ... Detailed information on DVB-T2 Modulator interface (T2-MI) is available on the www.dvb.org web site in the blue book section: Modulator Interface (T2-MI) for a second generation digital terrestrial television broadcasting system (DVB-T2), ref A136.

We are using the ReFereeT2 for testing during development of our DVB-T2 transmitter products. It is easy to use and is very powerful for debugging and monitoring. It is very useful for testing of multiple PLP configurations. The monitoring of PCR accuracy is also a nice feature.

Joe Tozer 05/07/2012 ReFeree is nice "Swiss Army knife" test tool, analyses pretty much everything from RF through T2 signalling, TS parameters, PSI/SI tables and even demodulation for pictures. Being small and USB powered I find it really handy to travel with for field and site work and to make TS recordings for later office based analysis. 5 / 5

After getting familiar with the ReFeree T2, this device is absolutely necessary.

The RF analyzis on the ReFeree T2 is perfect to know the modulation parameters and the stream structure.

"ImaginLab includes a DVB-T2 experimentation broadcast network, in order to support a testing service offer in that environment. To monitor this trial network which in deployed in the area of Rennes (Brittany - France) and which is operated by Images & Réseaux cluster, ImaginLab was already equipped with Enensys tests & monitoring products (Referee and EdgeProbe) on transmitter sites. As we were fully satisfied by the features provided by Enensys products and the easy way to operate them (GUI and SNMP), we decided to enhance our experimentation facilities with a new referee device in order to grant our customers with a neutral and flexible test service with is available for in-lab and in-the field test campaigns. Referee product is not only used for measuring the signal but it also very convenient to map various software decoders (H262, HEVC, …) on DVB-T2 demodulated streams. Doing so, ImaginLab provides a up-to-date flexible and agile environment to its customers.
