MAINTAINING SIGNAL FIDELITY WHILE USING A PACKETIZED TRANSPORT SYSTEMHankey, Robert L.; Krasinski, Kevin; Apogee Labs, Inc. (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2004-10)Packetizing data for transport over a networked system corrupts embedded information such as absolute and relative timing from the data. Without this information, it is difficult to reproduce the data with its original timing restored. Absolute timing is the time between data points within a given channel of data. Relative timing is the time relationship between data points from two or more channels of data. Having this restored timing allows the use of existing equipment for analysis and eliminates the need for expensive custom designed equipment to analyze the recovered data. Using a packetizing solution that transports information about the data stream and transport packets that are broken up by system wide timing allows us to accomplish this.
