Internet Streaming Video Monitoring Solution

Mividi WSM120 is a multiviewer monitoring system designed for monitoring IPTV and Internet streaming video services. It supports most common IPTV and Internet Streaming media protocols including UDP, RTP, HTTP, HLS (HTTP Live Streaming), MPEG-DASH, RTMP, RTSP and Smooth Streaming.

The system provides a real-time view of multiple video services coming from different streaming servers. Streams with different streaming protocols can be monitored in the same time. It can simultaneously display up to 60 SD or 20 HD video services using a single computer. Additionally, the system supports video rotation when more video displays are needed.

The system can be used for monitoring both live broadcast and VOD streaming services. Hundreds of VOD streams can be bundled together and the monitoring software will request the VOD services using their playlist URLs one by one, decode and display the videos. The test can be looped around and visual alarms are triggered when the video streaming service is interrupted.

The system displays video content and audio VU bars, and calculates audio loudness level. The monitoring software runs on standard Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 systems. The cost for setting up such a monitoring system is very low, and it is easy to use and maintain.

Flexible Multiviewer Display

The WSM120 supports multiviewer display of videos and audio PCM levels of IPTV or Internet video streaming services. It also calculates audio loudness and displays the loudness value along with video images. Additionally, the system can decode and display DVB subtitles and ATSC closed captioning data.

Each monitoring system can support up to four monitoring panels for multi-image display using graphic card features. The display panels can be arbitrarily configured in terms of size and location. A selected video can also be displayed in full screen mode, along with sound output. Audio-only program display is also supported.

The system takes transport stream input using IP interface. It can simultaneously monitor many different streams. Almost all common streaming protocols are supported, including UDP, RTP, HTTP, and HLS, MPEG-DASH, RTMP, RTSP and Smooth Streaming.

Live Broadcast and VOD Monitoring

The Mividi WSM120 supports both live broadcast and VOD monitoring. To play live broadcast video, simply map a URL to a display panel. When more than on URLs are mapped to a display panels, the system will start to rotate among multiple streams. Similarly, multiple VOD stream URLs can be mapped to one display panel and VOD streams can be played in turn. When all VOD streams are finished, they can be replayed in an infinite loop.

The system supports MPEG-2 and AVC video encoding formats, as well as commonly used audio formats including MP3, AAC, AAC plus, and AC3. It supports ATSC closed captioning and DVB subtitles. When there are multiple audios present in the stream, users can select specific audio streams to display.

The system supports multiviewer screen capture, encodes and streams the capture to a remote location using HTTP or RTP protocols for network-wide monitoring.

Visual, Email and Push Messaging Alarm

The system provides visual, sound, email and push messaging service alarms on the loss of input stream. The visual alarm is shown as red flashing boundary of a display panel with audio sound. The email alarm can be configured using a standard SMTP mail server. Additional, Mividi provides a push messaging service with an Android client app. Because both the email delivery and push messaging service may experience delay, it can be useful to enable both features.
