QoE Systems has unveiled its Q-Master HD Video quality analyzer. The solution is designed for telecommunications development engineers within system OEMs and service providers that need a flexible and cost-effective solution to test, measure and analyze the video quality generated and received by their multimedia products. A tool for laboratory environments, the system uses ITU standard perceptual analysis to generate a Mean Opinion Score (MOS) that represents the end-user’s perception of quality from the device under test. The devices include codecs, echo-cancellers, real time encoders and trans-coders, headends, set-top boxes and other types of video networking equipment.
Q-Master Video provides the following measurement parameters: an overall MOS score, blocking, blurring, jerkiness, PSNR, PSNR vs. time, lost frames and/or packets, and others. Additional algorithms will soon be available for no-reference video, lip-sync, etc. It uses a Windows-based GUI and has a video playback.
