Although there's a rumor that show attendance is down this year, that hasn't affected Tektronix one bit. While I was at the booth I learned that Tektronix had more than 800 people visit its booth each day this week, numbers that the company was very happy with. Amy Higgins, Americas Region PR Manager, Test & Measurement and Video products, told me that more people visited the booth in just two days during NAB 2008 than visited the booth over the total week of NAB four years ago.
She said the quality of the people who were visiting the booth was fantastic. People weren't just stopping by to get a brochure and leave. They stayed, and they had questions and needs.
Tektronix gave us a demo of its WFM7120 waveform monitor. The unit has been upgraded to include 3Gb/s single link serial-digital-interface (SDI) support. This capability is added through two new options: a monitoring option (3G) and a jitter measurement option.
