The Nielsen Digital Code Extractor Tool is a stand-alone diagnostic tool that enables transcoding clients to test their pre-encrypted feeds. For developers, the application provides a snapshot of the current functionality of a specific ID3 transcoder. The tool shows the Elemental Data Units (EDUs) for each tag that it detects in HLS content at a URL to which the transcoder is streaming. It also reports the NAES 2 and NAES 6 watermarks that it extracts from the AAC audio-stream component of the HLS stream.
