Today's operators need reliable and portable tools to help resolve video broadcast, transport and reception challenges. In an effort to increase the options available on the market Nickless Schirmer partner, Blonder Tongue Laboratories, recently introduced two new analyzers to provide real-time measurements for a wide range of digital and analog TV and radio signals.

The MTSA-PRO and BTPRO-7000S Analyzers enable engineers to configure, calibrate and text a number of RF and IP video networks, to deliver the best quality of service possible to customers.

Jeff Smith, vice president of sales at Blonder Tongue, said, "Our new analyzers provide operators with reliable, flexible, and affordable tools for detecting transport stream issues. Based on their unique design, which is extremely compact and lightweight, the analyzers can be used anywhere in the world to ensure a superior quality of service for viewers."

Blonder Tongue's MTSA-PRO MPEG transport stream analyzer measures QAM, IP and ASI signals. In addition it can play out transport stream files for troubleshooting purposes, serve as a PSi/PSIP generator and includes a wide range of analysis tools. The device offers advanced monitoring capabilities, including modulation error ratio (MER), received signal strength indicator (RSSI), High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) support and SCTE-35 marker detection.

Blonder Tongue's BTPRO-7000S is an HD tablet that allows engineers to analyze and document HD/SD QPSK/8PSK satellite, 8VSB, QAM and analog television or radio signals in real time. The device offers a range of frequency from 4 to 2250 MHz and can perform a variety of CATV measurements.

Both analyzers were designed with portability in mind, and offer a compact, lightweight builds perfect for use in remote locations.
