Encompass TS Content Capture System

Capture & Real Time Monitoring of ASI, RF, or IP Channels


Encompass captures your MPTS or SPTS and saves them as individual full/native resolution single program transport streams for easy search and export. Each captured transport stream is transcoded into a low res proxy for easy playback, review, segmenting, and download through a web browser from any location.

Encompass monitors transport stream parameters per ETSI TR101.290, with 24x7 monitoring and logging of Loudness/LKFS per the requirements of the ATSC A/85 Calm Act, 24x7 monitoring and logging of 608 and 708 closed captioning, PSIP logging and loss of PSIP detection, black screen detection, loss of audio detection, and ratings watermark detection and logging with configurable alarms and thresholds on each parameter within each stream. Notification of alarms and events is configurable through Email, Text, and SNMP.
