HD World: Harris Intros New HD Test Tools
10/15/2008

Harris is showing some of it new product lines this week at HD World 2008 in New York City, including new advanced monitoring applications such as its 3 Gbps video-input module for its Videotek VTM and TVM series of test instruments. The tools are designed to enable monitoring of progressively scanned high frame-rate formats, including 1080p. According to Harris, its Videotek AVM-717-3GB is more space-efficient than earlier models and self-contained for testing and measurement.

For lower-cost HD monitoring, Harris has added the TVM-4DG HD waveform monitor/vectorscope for monitoring HD-SDI and SD-SDI signals in a half-rack scope package.

For portable testing needs, its Videotek Star line of hand-held tools include the HD-Star HD/SD-SDI monitor/generator (for use by cable field technicians, among others) and ASI-Star—featuring transport stream-monitoring of DVB-ASI or SMPTE-310M, for compliance to ETR-290 priority 1 specs with error counting.

HD World 2008 is being held through today (Oct. 15-16) at the Javits Convention Center in Manhattan. Harris is located at Booth 915. The conference was predicting it could have record attendance.
