In the competitive media and entertainment industry, success relies on superior content and quality delivery. The PRISM family helps ensure both, through tools that meet the required diagnostic and analysis needs. Whether you need an instrument for engineering, the creative team, or both. PRISM delivers:
PRISM MPS SERIES

Provides an array of configurations for various display of YPbPr, YRGB or RGB with a variety of Gain, Sweep, Mag and Line Select functions and the ability to add cursors for precise measurement within the trace.
Allows the user to adjust the Saturation and Hue of the colour components with adjustment of Gain, Line Select or bar format (100% / 75%).
An X-Y plot of Luma versus Pb in the upper trace and negative Luma versus Pr in the lower trace for easy identification of the component. Provides inter-channel timing of the YPbPr components and simple adjustment of the black level using Gain and MAG.
Provides an X-Y Plot of G versus B in upper trace and G versus R in lower trace for easy identification or RGB components. Used by Camera Shaders and Colourist for simple adjustment of the RGB signal.
Shows a decoded image of the currently selected input. For visual identification of the image and to aid in troubleshooting issues.
Provides a summary of the SDI Format with SDI VPID SMPTE ST352, Bit Level and CRC Status. For IP streams provides summary of Format and Bit Level.
For the selected input audio levels can be show for each audio channel with in-bar indication for such events as over, clip, mute and silence. With configurable ballistics for True Peak, PPM1 and PPM2.
Shows a list of alarm events related to Source and Time the event occurred relative to internal time or derived from the input Timecode or PTP Time.
Show the input timing relative to the reference of Black Burst, Tri-Level or PTP (Requires option IP-MEAS) and allows the user to make simple timing adjustments to ensure synchronisation within the facility.
For IP signals provides a summary of Protocol, Bitrate, Payload Type, IP/MAC addresses, PTP Domain, Sequence Error, RTP Clock and RTP Marker Frequency for either SFP ports.
Customisation and Personalisation
PRISM is designed to be used in multiple applications from HD-SDI Live Acquisition to 25G ST 2110 IP Engineering and diagnostics. Software modules Options can be added any time to customise the instrument to meet the needs of job at hand.
The software based UI can then be personalised to meet the needs of the individuals on the team and how they like to work. These configurations can be stored as presets for quick instrument setup when needed.
With multiple ways to mount and install the instrument and multiple ways to interact with, and control the instrument, PRISM fits comfortably into any environment.
IP Session provides a summary of information for the decoded stream. With information on Layer 1 and 2. Along with syntax information on the video, audio and data streams. Summary information is provided on PTP and NMOS applications to assist the user in diagnosing problems. Requires option IP-MEAS to be installed in the instrument.
PIT Histogram provides a graphical plot of the packet arrival times of the signal being decoded for video, audio and data. The characteristic signature of the Histogram can be used to diagnose the type of Sender and help determine issues with network congestion. Requires option IP-MEAS to be installed in the instrument.
IP graphs provides graphical plots of parameter such as Total Bit Rate, Session Bit Rate, PIT arrival time and RTP Sequence Errors. These graphs can be plotted from the last 60 seconds to twenty-four hours. Allow users to see trending information of their decoded streams over time. Requires option IP-MEAS to be installed in the instrument.
Provides graphical plots of the timing for ST2110 video, audio and data. Comparing the data as it was received by PRISM relative to the embedded RTP time stamps and PTP. Stream Timing can be used to check the synchronisation of each sender to PTP for the various flows. Requires option IP-MEAS to be installed in the instrument.
Trending graphs of various performance parameters of the PTP signal can be plotted from 60 seconds to 24 hours. Allowing users to track the stability of PTP within the network. Requires option IP-MEAS to be installed in the instrument.
Video data is plotted as either a 1931 or 1976 CIE diagram. This display can be used to check the chromaticity of the video signal and determine compliance to specific gamut limits such as BT.2020, DCI-P3 or Rec. 709 Requires option PROD to be installed in the instrument
The Telestream Stop Display provides a tool to monitor the video signal with a variety of transfer functions in a consistent manner. This simplifies monitor of camera raw and High Dynamic Range (HDR) content to provide a consistent look. Requires option PROD to be installed in the instrument
This display shows the Dolby Metadata present within the Dolby signal or present within an ANC Packet as standardised in SMPTE ST 2020. The AUD option is required and if the user want to decode the Dolby signal option DLBY is required.
AES Channel Status
AES Channel Status display provides information on the audio signals Channel Status bits. When the Channel Use mode is shown as Profession the syntax can be automatically decoded. The AUD option is required for this application.
Datalist display can be used to view the samples of the SDI signals. The user can search through the data for Start of Active Video (SAV) or End of Active Video (EAV) or the next ANC Data packet. Option QC or ENG is required for this application.
ANC Session provides a watchlist of the available Ancillary Data types present within the signal and provides information on DID, SDID, Link, location and occurrence of the packets. With decode of SCTE 104 messaging. Option QC or ENG is required for this application.
The Eye Display provides a measurement of the SDI physical layer for Timing and Alignment with automated measurements. The Eye Display feature is available in MPS300 and MPD300 as standard and Requires option PHY for SD/HD/3G SDI for MPI2-25 and MPX2-25. Option FMT-4K to enable the support for 6G and 12G SDI.
The Jitter Display can be used in conjunction with the Eye display to measure the physical layer of the SDI signal. The Jitter Display feature is available in MPS300 and MPD300 as standard and Requires option PHY for SD/HD/3G SDI for MPI2-25 and MPX2-25. Option FMT-4K to enable the support for 6G and 12G SDI.
The Audio to Video Delay measurement measures the presentation time difference of Audio and Video using the AV Timing mode test signal (Flash & Pop) generated by the Telestream Sync Pulse Generator products. The user can measure lip sync timing of PCM / Dolby over SDI, ST2110 and ST2022-6 signals. Option QC or ENG is required for this application.
IP Generator provides a simple test pattern generator for ST2110 for colour bars and audio tones. Requires GEN option.
