Â Â The NEW Digital Quality IndexÂ The New Digital Quality Index, only available from JDSU, catches digital errors better and faster than other traditional digital measurements, allowing installers to go a step further and detect impairments below the threshold at which digital video is corrupted. DQI is a real-time measurement and often catches impairments that are masked by the correction capability of QAM receiver components or the burst protection capability of deep interleaving. DQI is software enabled and is currently available on any DSAM with DOCSISÂ® 2.0 hardware and shipped with firmware v3.2 or greater.
