Network Ten tests HD quality with OmniTek PQA
Australia’s Network Ten has selected the OmniTek PQA to test the quality of different video signals in a range of HD video equipment currently being assessed for use by the broadcaster. PQA is a tool to identify and select equipment that introduces the minimum amount of image change/image degradation to video passing through its HD transmission path. The PQA’s capability to make real-time picture difference and MPEG-2 macroblocking artefact measurements and to give picture degradation measurement figures enables clients to rank their products in order of picture quality.
The OmniTek PQA is a full-reference picture quality analyzer that performs detailed analysis of images in all SD and HDTV formats to establish the exact level of image degradation through a processing path. It has been designed for use in a variety of different engineering environments in addition to production line testing.
