Symmetricom today announced enhancements to its quality of experience (QoE) portfolio with upgrades to both the V-Factor QoE monitoring platform and the Q-1000 source video analyzer. The upgrades are intended to improve monitoring and troubleshooting of digital video quality and better quantify the impact of new technologies, such as statistical multiplexing and advanced compression.

The V-Factor platform now exhibits extended monitoring capabilities including RFC 4445 Media Delivery Index (MDI) support, a streamlined user interface, easier navigation, detailed reporting and alarm information, and an updated Web Service integration layer. New graphical components support channel and multiple program transport stream (MPTS) views to facilitate troubleshooting for program and multiplex related issues.

The Q-1000 now supports HD-SDI time codes (SMPTE RP188) as well as input profiles. It also provides target profiles designed to allow content producers, programmers and broadcasters to define the target display for their content.
