Advanced Methods And Tools For Online Evaluation Of Multiplexing Services And Encoding Parameters In Digital Video Broadcasting
Alexandru Florin Antone, Radu Arsinte
The paper contains a practical study regarding some aspects of multiplexing and encoding implementation in DVB systems. Starting from the ITU-R DTV model, the main blocks are investigated from theoretical point of view, emphasizing the points where is still possible to bring improvements in optimized practical implementation. The theoretical considerations are followed by an experimental study, performed online, using as a core element TSReader Pro, a software package developed to realize the analysis of different aspects (services, multiplexing, RF channel) in DTV (Digital TV). The results are useful in future service improvements, revealing, for example, the unused capacity in each distribution scenario.
