MPEG2 TS Packet Analyser is a lightweight tool designed to read the transport stream files saved by various broadcast systems. The specialists can use it to quickly analyze the TS files in order to identify transmission problems.
The MPEG transport stream format is commonly used for broadcasting television and radio transmissions. They store audio and video information and are able to compensate for signal loss by using stream synchronization features.
A detailed analysis of these streams is required when you need to test your equipment or the broadcast system. This tool is able to load the transport streams from satellite, cable or terrestrial broadcasts in order to perform a low-level analysis.
It supports ISO, DVB and AVCHD transport streams that need to be decoded in order to check the content of each packet. The main window of the program displays the TS headers and the details for the current packet.
You can use this program to view the video sequence headers, TS headers and adaptation data from every packet stored in the TS file. Unfortunately, you need to go through every packet from the sequence since the app does not allow you to jump to a certain packet.
The included tools enable you to check the file continuity and the packet ID spacing in order to test the compliance with the video broadcasting standards. You can also demultiplex a stream by specifying which PIDs should be included in the output file.
If you need to save the data for later analysis, the MPEG2 TS Packet Analyser includes flexible exporting features that enable you to customize the reports by specifying the relevant data.
While the program is designed for the broadcast specialists, its interface is easy to use and provides quick access to all the features. Basic keyboard shortcuts are supported in order to facilitate the packet navigation.
The MPEG2 TS Packet Analyser is easy to use and can be used from a removable device which makes it a reliable tool for anyone that needs to check MPEG2 transport streams.
MPEG-2 TS packet analyser will enable decoding and low level analysis of ISO / DVB / AVCHD transport streams.
It can be used for fault-finding, equipment and system testing, software development and learning more about how MPEG-2 systems work.
