Compressed Media Analyzers


The CMA 1820 is the ideal solution for compressed media in-depth analysis and encoding compliance. It enables designers, engineers, system integrators, and network operators to quickly and easily verify standards compliance, identify media interoperability issues, develop products around new CODECs, and troubleshoot transmission issues. With full support for HEVC/H.265, H.264, MPEG2,and VC-1 video along with AC-3, AAC, and MPEG audio, the CMA 1820 is well-suited for use with all contemporary broadcast equipment. Support for the latest OTT/WebTV systems is now available with the OTT option and allows direct examination of manifest files and the corresponding segmented media. Other enhanced options such as closed caption, subtitle, SCTE35-DPI and PTS/DTS alignment analysis can provide even more benefit to the demanding user. Whether it is used in conjunction with other Sencore analysis and monitoring equipment or on the laptop of a mobile professional, the CMA 1820 is the perfect tool for use with all next-generation digital video networks.
