RANGER Neo release 24 - More for your analyzer!
We are glad to inform you that firmware “Release 24” is now available for RANGERNeo TV analyzer series. As usual, this is offered for free. Following is a short description of the new functions included in this firmware version. Please spare a minute to go through them because they might be interesting for your application.
4K frame grabber
All RANGERNeo TV spectrum analyzers now include the new “4K frame grabber” function which allows viewing of 4K-UHD video. UHD video frames are decoded and shown in the form of a slide show allowing the user to effectively confirm that the UHD content is received properly.

OTT or Over The Top refers to video, audio and other media services delivered directly to the user over the Internet. There are different standards being used to deliver OTT services. We will cover MPEG-DASH in this release with coverage for others to come at a later stage. All OTT protocols address the fundamental problem of poor viewer tolerance to disruption or buffering during video play out caused by the naturally changing network conditions of the Internet.
- MPEG-DASH MPD (Media Presentation Description) files analysis
- Segment downloads monitoring
- Bitrate graphic
RANGERNeo +, RANGERNeo 2 and RANGERNeo 3 will now include a web server making it possible to access many of the analyser’s functions remotely. This function will continue to grow in the near future.

SCAN + TILT
Mainly but not only with our Cable TV customers in mind SCAN and TILT functions are now available on most RANGERNeo analysers. These functions become handy when you need to evaluate the response of a cable distribution system in whole or in part.
SCAN and TILT functions
Multiple channel signal monitoring
Signal monitoring, drive test, coverage function, different names for slightly different functions which can do nonstop measurements on a TV or radio channel. We expand these functions now allowing simultaneous signal level measurements for multiple channels.
GPS drive test for multiple channels simultaneously
Video / Audio streaming
It is now possible to stream the video and audio of a specific service or the complete transport stream to a remote destination IP so that it can be monitored using a video player such as VLC Media Player.
