DK-Technologies launches four-in-one waveform monitor
DK-Technologies launched the DK PT0760 waveform monitor for outside broadcast vehicles, production studios and master control rooms at NAB2008.
The DK PT0760 is a lightweight, easy-to-operate HD/SD waveform monitor that is four waveform monitors in one box. The unit is well-suited for camera control units because it can monitor up to four cameras from a single compact box.
The PTO760 is unique because it features four separate auto-sensing HD/SD inputs that allow for the simultaneous display of four individual waveform monitors showing G, R, B, Y, Cb, Cr and luminance.
The unit also has a quad splitter that enables the user to view four simultaneous displays on a single screen, either external or internal. DK has incorporated a built-in rasterizer, so all PTO760 functions can be seen on an SD or HD monitor, while retaining the functionality of the built-in monitor as a control panel.
The unit’s HD/SD internal video test signal generator has an independent output and provides test signals in 1080p, 1080i, 720p and SD formats. The test signals include several color bar signals, color black, SDI checkfield and monitor alignment signals.
