CMA 1820 Compresse Media Analyzer

The CMA 1820 is the ideal solution for compressed media in-depth analysis and encoding compliance. It enables designers, engineers, system integrators, and network operators to quickly and easily verify standards compliance, identify media interoperability issues, develop products around new CODECs, and troubleshoot transmission issues.
With full support for H.264, MPEG2, and VC-1 video along with AC-3, AAC, and MPEG audio, the CMA 1820 is well-suited for use with all contemporary broadcast equipment. Enhanced options such as closed caption subtitle, SCTE35-DPI and PTS/DTS alignment analysis can provide even more benefit to the demanding user.
