This short paper is dedicated to the subject of measuring QoS in the IPTV service. To start with QoS measurement models in general and then models designed specifically for measuring QoS in IPTV are presented. The paper goes on to describe a new numerical tool for examining the quality of IPTV video streams. The tool’s functionality is then put to the test in a number of analysis scenarios. The results and insights gained from the analyses are then presented in several diagrams, and interpreted. The paper concludes with a summary and an outlook on further areas of work.
