ABC Relies on DTS-200’s MPEG and Advanced Audio/Video Analysis Features to Help Ensure Accurate Signals
SAN JOSE, CA, September 9, 2005 - JDS Uniphase Corporation (NASDAQ: JDSU; and TSX: JDU), the worldwide leader in broadband test and measurement solutions, announced today that Australia Broadcast Corporation (ABC), Australia's national non-commercial public broadcaster, has selected the award-winning DTS-200 digital test and measurement solution. ABC is therefore extending its long-time use of Acterna DTS solutions which have been recently acquired by JDS Uniphase.
For years ABC has been enhancing its network with new equipment and systems, including the use of JDS Uniphase’s DTS-100 test equipment for complex analysis of potential issues that could affect the network beyond the reach of basic stream content monitoring. When commissioning any new equipment or systems, the DTS-100 has been an effective tool to verify output from ABC’s network to ensure a complete and correct signal.
With the recent purchase of the next generation analyzer, the DTS-200, ABC is expanding into more advanced capabilities offered by the DTS line, such as MPEG analysis for digital bandwidth efficiency and more advanced audio analysis tools. Since the DTS provides ease of access via remote networking and M-probe, a software tool which provides offline video and audio analysis tools, the DTS is positioned to support ABC in their effort to deliver the most reliable and efficient service to their listeners and viewers.
About the DTS-200 and DTS-330
JDS Uniphase’s DTS-200 allows digital network operators and associated equipment vendors to gain remote visibility into their MPEG streams and perform various test applications to identify problems with equipment and content. A powerful remote test solution, the DTS-200 provides a simple and rapid means to access and analyze digital video (DV) data. The DTS-330 is a “one-box” solution that offers several different combinations of MPEG (digital video broadcast, or DVB, and advanced television systems committee, or ATSC) transport stream generation, capture, creation, and analysis. Its applications range from R&D validation to system deployment and troubleshooting.
