Gsertel’s RCS 400 ATSC is a network professional monitoring platform that allows the remote, proactive and real-time ATSC 3.0 and ATSC 1.0 signal monitoring. The RCS 400 ATSC has the ability to simultaneously measure, analyze and monitor RF, STLTP, ASI and IPTV signals.

With a compact format, 1RU, all the processing and analysis necessary to obtain the monitoring results is done on the equipment, not needing any additional element except a standard web browser to display the information.

RCS 400 ATSC is designed for a 24x7 monitoring signal, allowing to ensure the availability of services in a ATSC 3.0 & ATSC 1.0 network.

The intuitive web interface of the RCS, which allows an easy and quick access to all functions, coupled with unique features such as the powerful spectral analysis and capabilities of streaming or Transport Stream signal recording, make the RCS 400 ATSC an ideal solution for headend monitoring, transmission sites or locations on the field.
