Tektronix’ Video Product Line introduces the new 4-SDI (3Gbps/HD/SD) input monitoring support and 3G Level B 2xHD input support capabilities for its advanced 3G/HD/SD-SDI waveform monitors, WFM8300 and WFM8200 as well as advanced 3G/HD/SD-SDI waveform rasterisers, WVR8300 and WVR8200.
These new capabilities will strengthen Tektronix’ leadership position in the baseband monitor market.
New 4-SDI Input Monitoring Capability for Camera Balancing/ Alignment Application during Content Production
Users can now simultaneously monitor up to four cameras with SDI output using the new firmware version 2.0 of the WFM/ WVR 8000 series instruments.
Users can also select Waveform parade, Waveform overlay, Vector/Lightning overlay or Gamut (Diamond, Split Diamond, Spearhead and Arrowhead) overlay display in full screen mode to monitor 2-4 SDI inputs (3Gbps/HD/SD) simultaneously.
Additional 3G Level B Formats Support including 2xHD Input Formats
The new firmware version 2.0 of the WFM/ WVR 8000 series instruments supports more 3G Level B input formats including 3G Level B 2xHD (1920x1080 or 1280x720) formats.
These additional input formats support will be available with all new WFM/WVR 8000 series instruments when Option 3G is installed.
Existing WFM/WVR 8000 series instruments with Option 3G installed can also be upgraded with these additional input formats support free of charge when the new firmware becomes available.
New Option DAT for WFM8200 and WVR8200
All WFM8300 and WVR8300 instruments presently come with SDI Data Analyser and Ancillary Data Analyser (ANC Data Inspector) as standard capabilities. With the new firmware, customers can now add these capabilities to the WFM8200 or the WVR8200 by ordering Option DAT.
The new firmware also includes SMPTE RP 2020 VANC Dolby Metadata display as standard capability (without the need to order the Dolby option) for all WFM/ WVR 8000 series instruments.
