MVP-200 (MPEG Video Probe) (Discontinued)

Rack-mounted remote-accessible MPEG video monitor and analyzer.

The MVP-200 is a cost effective monitoring platform that can also provide the detailed information needed to isolate and resolve the most difficult MPEG2 problems in a cost effective platform.

VIAVI MVP-200 digital video probe with SimulTrack™II for Ethernet offers an industry first by providing the capability to do both monitoring and analysis simultaneously  in a single platform. The result is more effective analysis and improved troubleshooting efficiency.  The MVP-200 monitors all programs, without scanning. When needed, an engineer can use the same MVP-200 to perform detailed deep packet inspection of a selected stream or program without any interruption to the monitoring function.


  • Gigabit Ethernet Line Rate monitoring of all programs
  • 24x7 monitoring of Timing / PCR health of all programs on Gigabit Ethernet
  • 24x7 monitoring of key TR 101-290 parameters for all streams and programs
  • On-demand deep packet inspection/analysis of selected transport stream or program in real-time
  • Full table and metadata decodes and analysis in real-time
  • Eliminates the need to “scan” programs on Ethernet links


  • Monitoring key Headend and Hub points in the network for MPEG TS and program health
  • Monitor, troubleshoot and isolate problems with Multiplexing, Transcoding and Transrating operations
  • Monitor the Timing health (PCR accuracy, jitter, offset and drift) for 600 programs simultaneously
  • Insure the quality of video source feeds
  • Real-time on-demand deep packet inspection and analysis for troubleshooting and root cause identification

Key Features

  • Monitoring of up to 600 programs per probe for TR 101-290 P1+P2 and PCR timing health
  • No need to scan channels – monitoring is all channels all the time
  • Nanosecond resolution for PCR timing accuracy and jitter measurements
  • Real-time deep packet inspection of a selected stream or program without interrupting the line rate monitoring functions
  • Complete real-time decodes of tables and metadata
  • XML based API and SNMP trap generation for integration into monitoring fault management systems
  • Remote access to all functions
  • Transport stream recording for forensic analysis
  • Supports Ethernet , QAM and ASI interfaces
  • SD and HD support
  • Supports 2 interfaces operating simultaneously
  • Automatic report generation
