Target of Evaluation

Abbreviated as TOE. The product or system that is the subject of the evaluation.

TCP/IP

Transmission Control Protocol (TCP or TCP/IP). One of the main protocols of the Internet protocol suite that originated in the initial network implementation in which it complemented the Internet Protocol (IP).

Telemetry

The collection of measurements or other data at remote or inaccessible points and their automatic transmission to receiving equipment for monitoring. 

Thumbnail

A reduced-size version of a picture or video, used to help in recognizing and organizing them. Sometimes referred to as the "poster image."

Timecode

A sequence of numeric codes generated at regular intervals by a timing synchronization system.

Time-to-Live

Time-to-Live (TTL) for stream packets. Specifies the number of router hops the stream packet is allowed to travel/pass before it must be discarded.

TLB

Transmit Load Balancing. The outgoing traffic is distributed according to the current load and queue on each slave interface. Incoming traffic is received by one currently designated slave network interface. If this receiving slave fails, another slave takes over the MAC address of the failed receiving slave.

TLS

Abbreviation of Transport Layer Security. Like its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), a cryptographic protocol that provides communications security over a computer network.

TOE

Abbreviation of Target of Evaluation. The product or system that is the subject of the evaluation.

ToS

Type of Service (ToS). Specifies the desired quality of service (QoS). This value is assigned to the Type of Service field of the IP Header for the outgoing streams.

Transcode-Multiplexing

Transcode-Multiplexing (Transmux). A process that changes the format of a video or audio file while keeping some or all of the streams of the original file. It converts to another format without changing the file's contents.

Transcoding

The direct digital-to-digital data conversion of one encoding to another.

Transmission Control Protocol

Transmission Control Protocol (TCP or TCP/IP). One of the main protocols of the Internet protocol suite that originated in the initial network implementation in which it complemented the Internet Protocol (IP).

Transmit Load Balancing

(TLB). The outgoing traffic is distributed according to the current load and queue on each slave interface. Incoming traffic is received by one currently designated slave network interface. If this receiving slave fails, another slave takes over the MAC address of the failed receiving slave.

Transport Layer Security

Abbreviated as TLS. Like its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), a cryptographic protocol that provides communications security over a computer network.

Transport Stream segments

Transport Stream segments (TS segments). A delivery format for audio-video.

TS

MPEG Transport Stream (MTS, or TS). A standard format for transmission and storage of audio, video, and Program and System Information Protocol (PSIP) data. It is used in broadcast systems such as DVB, ATSC, and IPTV.

TS segments

Transport Stream segments (TS segments). A delivery format for audio-video.

TTL

Time-to-Live (TTL) for stream packets. Specifies the number of router hops the stream packet is allowed to travel/pass before it must be discarded.

Type of Service

Type of Service (ToS). Specifies the desired quality of service (QoS). This value is assigned to the Type of Service field of the IP Header for the outgoing streams.
