DK-Technologies has unveiled the PT0710M HD/SD waveform monitor, a single channel version of the acclaimed PT0760M that won a TV Technology STAR Award at NAB last year.
Billed at the PT0760M’s baby brother, the PT0710M can display Red, Green, Blue and luminance plus Gamut errors. It is available with a variety of upgrades, making it ideally suited to smaller production studios and Outside Broadcast vehicles that don’t currently need a multi-channel unit but would like the option of adding functionality at a later stage. These upgrades include external reference from Black Burst or Tri-level signals, Vectorscope, audio de-embedding of up to 16 channels, simple bar graph audio metering, Dolby E decoding, full 5.1 metering via the DK StarFishTM/JellyFishTM display and a full range of 8 audio channel input and output plug-in cards.
DK-Technologies’ CEO Karsten Hansen says: “The PT0710M is just as light-weight and easy to use as its big brother but because it can be configured in numerous ways it allows users to tailor-make the product to their exact requirements. In these cost-conscious times, this is exactly the type of product the market wants. The upgrade path is very simple to implement and can be done at any time via additional software keys and plug-in cards. With this unit, users get all the benefits of DK’s groundbreaking monitoring and metering technology without having to invest in features they don’t currently need.”
