This feature allows the user to record audio and video data of a session to a file in QuickTime (*.qt) format. PacketScan™ can monitor video calls and display both audio and video RTP streams in summary view. The recorded video data in Quick Time Format (*.qt) can be viewed by VLC Viewer (3rd party application).




Record video option is available for both Auto Detected RTP Calls and SIP Calls. Supported Video Codecs are:

  • H263+
  • H263++ CIF 190 kbps
  • H263++ CIF 350 kbps
  • H263++ CIF 512 kbps
  • H263++ QCIF 128 kbps
  • H263++ QCIF 64 kbps
  • H263++ QCIF 80 kbps.
  • H264*

*Note that Video recording is supported only for H263+ codec. However, video QoS statistics is available for all codecs.
H.263 is a video codec designed by the ITU-T as a low-bitrate encoding solution for video capture and videoconferencing. H.263 provides video capture and video conference monitoring capability, while H264 is an industry standard codec for video compression.

QCIF - Quarter Common Intermediate Format, a videoconferencing format that specifies data rates of 30 frames per second (fps), with each frame containing 144 lines and 176 pixels per line.

CIF - A video format used in videoconferencing systems that specifies a data rate of 30 frames per second (fps), with each frame containing 288 lines and 352 pixels per line.

H.264 is the latest video coding standard of the ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG) and the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG). H.264 is an industry standard for video compression, the codec offers better compression performance over previous standards.
It has demonstrated the significantly improved coding efficiency, lower compressed bit rate for the same image quality, substantially enhanced error robustness, and increased flexibility and scope of applicability relative to its predecessors;

Wide application of H.264 includes;

  • Mobile TV broadcasting
  • Internet video
  • Video conferencing

Support Video QoS for H.263+ and H.264 video codec; Video Statistics such as Source/Destination Video Channels, Media Type, SSRC, Average Delay/Gap, Packet Counts, Codec Type, Missing Packets, Delay, Gap, Video Frame Count, Out Of Sequence count, Duplicate Packets count, Media Delivery Index (MDI- (Delay Factor : Media Loss Rate)), and Frame Rate are provided for each video session. PacketScan™ with Video QoS capability addresses customers long felt need of Video Call Quality in IP networks.

Media Delivery Index (MDI) measurement is used as a diagnostic tool or as a quality indicator for monitoring a network intended to deliver applications such as streaming media, MPEG video, Voice over IP, or other information sensitive to arrival time and packet loss. Media Delivery Index (MDI) can be used to monitor both the quality of a delivered video stream and to show system margin for IPTV systems by giving an accurate measurement of jitter and delay at network level (Internet Protocol, IP), which are the real causes for quality loss. The Media Delivery Index is typically shown as two numbers separated by a colon the Delay Factor (DF) and the Media Loss Rate (MLR).

Registration Summary

Packet Data Analysis is enhanced to display the SIP registration information in tabular as well as graphical format in Registration Summary. This interface displays the SIP registration information in a tabular format which includes user agent, registrar, registered time, status, time to live (TTL), expiry time, remaining time, Registration Request Delay (RRD) and Registration attempts for each user agent. In addition, it displays the active registration graph of the entire registration summary and provides the trace display of each registration.

Include graphs that display the active registration and registration trace message sequences of registered calls at the bottom of the registration summary. The registration statistics display the count of the total, completed, failed, & active registrations along with registration and de-registration packet count.
