The Linear Acoustic® MT2000 Bitstream Analyzer is a portable, handheld diagnostic tool that can monitor and generate Dolby® Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby E, and PCM bitstreams.
With its built-in test-signal generator, the MT2000 allows audio system integrators and service engineers to quickly monitor and check the integrity and composition of Dolby encoded and PCM signals routed through production, broadcast, cable, satellite facilities, or even a home theater system.
Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, and Dolby E inputs and outputs of test bitstreams; Stereo (AES/ TOSLINK optical) and multichannel PCM (SDI and MADI) input; Live generation of PCM waveforms such as white noise, pink noise, sine, and square waves, latency test signal, A/V sync test pulse (for beep/ flash).
ITU-R BS.1770 loudness measurement with Dolby Dialogue Intelligence; Error detection at the AES3 layer and within the coded audio layers, including SMPTE 337 formatting information and Dolby E guard band position.
|AES and MADI I/O||
All connectors are 75-Ohm BNC female; Main inputs with 75-Ohm internal termination; Signal levels per SMPTE 276M/AES-3ID-2001. Compatible with consumer S/PDIF connections. AES I/O connectors also serve as I/O for MADI.
Auto-sensing 3Gb/s HD/SD-SDI (SMPTE 292M/259M/424M), up to 1080p/60/59.94/50Hz, access to audio and VANC metadata and timecode.
