Tektronix delivers automated test device for consumer HDTV products
Pushing a single button on the VM5000HD, according to Tektronix, can objectively and reliably assess product performance in 100 different parametric measurements in eight specific test categories.
Tektronix has introduced an automated component analog video signal analyzer that measures HD, progressive scan and PC format signals for consumer video equipment. The new Tektronix VM5000HD Automated Video Measurement Set, available on a combined set of DVDs and CD-ROMs in both compressed and uncompressed formats, is targeted at CE manufacturers, video network operators and others that require fast and repeatable testing.
The VM5000HD provides fast, accurate, and repeatable video measurements in 1080i, 720p, 480p and SXGA formats utilizing multiple industry-standard video parameters, without the need for complicated instrument set-ups, algorithm selection, time-consuming manual measurements or tedious results correlation. Additionally, the signal set provides significant flexibility in the selection of signal generators.
Pushing a single button on the VM5000HD, according to Tektronix, can objectively and reliably assess product performance in 100 different parametric measurements in eight specific test categories. And the unit displays any of these measurements within 10 seconds.
The VM5000HD also offers a HD matrix test signal set for the creation of standardized test signals, including color bars, multiburst, sweep, and five other signal types; for testing in Y/Pb/Pr and RGB color space. By offering reference signals in a broad array of formats, this signal set also eliminates any operability issues or doubt created by questions regarding the quality of input test signals.
The Tektronix VM5000HD Automated Video Measurement Set is available for order now with a four-week delivery from receipt of order. For more information visit www.tektronix.com.
