Tektronix announces WFM8200, WFM8300 waveform monitors

Tektronix announced the WFM8200 and WFM8300 advanced waveform monitors. The instruments provide high-quality, real-time, automated 3Gb/s SDI eye pattern display and jitter measurements that help broadcasters and network operators effectively diagnose signal problems. The WFM8300 (with Option PHY) also provides multi-rate HD/SD-SDI and 3Gb/s SDI (with Option 3G) color bar and pathological signal generation capabilities that provide engineers with a simple signal source for quick signal path verification during system and equipment setup and troubleshooting.

The waveform monitors feature a Luma Qualified Vector (LQV) display, which allows users to selectively choose a luma amplitude range over which to isolate color components within the vector display. This enables operators to identify color components in terms of shadows, mid tones and highlights within multiple LQV displays.

The patented Spearhead display provides a new tool for color grading, allowing operators to view the video signal in terms of lightness, value and saturation. This 2-D representation of the 3-D color space provides operators a simple method to match images from scene to scene, enabling them to present consistent image quality throughout the production process.
