Measurements on the MPEG-2 Transport Stream

  • Walter Fischer
Part of the Signals and Communication Technology book series (SCT)


With the introduction of digital television, neither the hopes of the users nor the fears of the test equipment makers were confirmed: there is still a large need for test instruments for digital television, but of a different type. Where it was mainly video analyzers for evaluating the test lines of an analog baseband signal in analog television, it is mainly MPEG-2 test decoders which are being used in digital TV. Throughout the world, taking measurements directly at the transport stream has become the most important digital TV test technology with regard to turnover and demand.
