Many devices, including cellphones, now have mp3 players or similar music replay capabilities. Assessing the quality of the replay is important in product development, production and a factor in cellphone selection. Here’s how to do it with MultiDSLA.
Smartphone Control – A new option in MultiDSLA for managing mobile phone testing. The initial release supports Android; Blackberry, Windows and IOS support will follow. Automating mobile phone call set-up and teardown using the phone’s handsfree pushbutton and inbuilt facilities can be complicated. Smartphone Control simplifies the process and provides some useful data from the phone. Download an app from …
Over the last few months a number of bugs have been found and fixed in POLQA. These have been published in ITU Recommendation P.Imp863. Why a new Recommendation? This is standard practice in the ITU. Rather than reissuing the original recommendation the bug fixes are published in an implementer’s guide. The new recommendation includes 9 fixes. The MultiDSLA v4.3.2 and subsequent versions …
MultiDSLA v4.3.0 now includes Perceptual Evaluation of Audio Quality ITU-R Rec. BS.1387. PEAQ compares a 48k reference music signal with the music replayed by a phone or MP3 player. A number of other enhancements are included in this release, including some improvements in the POLQA® implementation.
MultiDSLA is well known for its speech-based measurements but it also supports the tone-based and other measurements used traditionally to assess telephony performance. These features are contained in the Telephone Tester option and can now be used with a 48k sample rate DSLAII to measure the performance of music playback.
Malden presents the advantages of POLQA over PESQ and displays MultiDSLA at the Toyo Solutions Fair in Tokyo and Osaka.
Malden will be on stand 824 at 4G World this month in Chicago. We will be pleased to give you an overview of how the industry leading MultiDSLA system uses the new metric – ITU-T P.863 POLQA – to provide meaningful measurements across a variety of technologies including 2G, 3G, 4G, LTE and VoIP. Some of the main capabilities of the MultiDSLA that …
In this how-to we explain how adjusting the level at which we run the test significantly influences the measured speech quality of the connection.
A recent request we received to monitor a call and terminate it if, at any time, a tone is detected on the call.
MultiDSLA includes a programmable interface to control the configuring and scheduling of tests along with the extraction of results. This tutorial demonstrates how simple it is to get started.
