PROWATCHNeo 2: Advanced monitoring system

PROWATCHNeo 2: Advanced monitoring system

Surveillance of radio and television signals on terrestrial, cable and satellite systems with remote control from a single control center. SNMP protocol and DataMiner® compatible. It includes transport stream recorder and analyzer.

The PROWATCH Neo 2 is a monitoring system oriented to supervise radio and TV broadcasting , cable TV and satellite TV networks in the 5 to 2500 MHz frequency band. It is also possible to survey IPTV, ASI-TS or WiFi in the 2.4 and 5.7 GHz bands. It is possible to survey digital terrestrial transmissions in DVB-T, DVB-T2, ATSC, ISDB-T/TB and J.83B, Cable TV in QAM and DVB-C2 and satellite in DSS, DVB-S and DVB-S2.

PROWATCH Neo 2 can monitor and analyze streams coming out from satellite receivers, transport stream players, multiplexers, etc. Received transport stream signals can also be output to other devices.

PROWATCH Neo 2 provides full remote control for the different parameters in all the sites to warrant quality of the complete network.

The monitoring system is SNMP compatible, letting it be part of any SNMP manager system already in use by the network operator. Building a monitoring network with the PROWATCH Neo 2 is as simple as adding as many remote stations as required.

PROMAX can provide the MIB files that will allow the integration of the monitoring and telemetry equipment in any SNMP control system, including some of the most renowned SNMP managers in the broadcast industry such as the DataMiner®.
