The client needed a partner to support them with the architecture and development of their completely new 24/7 Transport Stream (TS) monitoring system

The Skills Required

Analysis of product requirements, specification development, implementation of solution and comprehensive test system, with branch, merge and release management.

Development of highly efficient, comprehensive codebase, including third-party elements and interfaces to ensure industry-leading performance on a range of PC and Operating System environments. Complex thread and memory management tasks, highly evolved database integration and Transport Stream processing, serviced through web GUI, SOAP and SNMP calls, all served to produce a highly configurable, extremely stable, best in class product.

A fully automatic regression test suite was created to support the development. The first task performed after bug detection was to create an associated test to add to the suite. A full bank of soak test PC/OS configurations was used to ensure fully stable solutions capable of long-term 24/7 monitoring on multiple platforms were released to customers.

Testimonials

CEO, DekTec Digital Video B.V. - Sito Dekker

Fen’s engineers have done an excellent job in creating a sophisticated flagship product that outperforms the competition with respect to price/performance ratio. The development methodology is mature and leads to qualitatively solid software, while Fen’s approach has been persistent and professional at all times.

The Brief

The client needed a partner to support them with the architecture and development of their completely new 24/7 Transport Stream (TS) monitoring system, DTC-720 Xpect® Mosaic. Xpect Mosaic is a software package that combines 24/7 Transport-Stream monitoring with a fully configurable multi viewer Mosaic of decoded video, audio bars and monitoring status.

The Solution

Fen worked in partnership with DekTec’s engineering and marketing teams to develop a highly configurable, feature-rich software product to run on standard PC hardware that supports real-time monitoring, triggered recordings and decoding of a large number of SD and HD DVB and ATSC Transport Streams simultaneously. A key achievement was to deliver efficiency, stability and reliability of a TS monitor, running 24/7.
