Tektronix to Introduce New Video Waveform Monitors

At NAB2006, Tektronix will demo a new family of multi-format waveform monitors: WFM6100, WFM7000 and WFM7100. The new waveform monitors enable customers to achieve quality levels required for video production, distribution and broadcasting.

"These waveform monitors offer unparalleled performance and flexibility, making them the preferred solution for maintaining hybrid video production, distribution and broadcast systems through the transition from analog to digital video and audio technologiesm," said Todd Biddle, vice president of Video Product Line at Tektronix.

The three new multi-format waveform monitors allow customers to select the exact configuration that best supports their business needs. The SD-capable WFM6100 Multi-format Waveform Monitor offers high performance monitoring and measurement capabilities for systems using composite analog video and SD digital video formats. The HD-capable WFM7000 and WFM7100 Multi-format Waveform Monitors help customers manage hybrid HD/SD/composite video systems.

The WFM7000 addresses basic monitoring needs, while the WFM7100 has additional capabilities for high-performance monitoring and measurement. Available options include support for monitoring digital audio, both embedded and discreet AES/EBU inputs, and analog audio formats. The WFM6100 and WFM7100 monitors also offer options for Dolby measurement, high-performance SDI signal measurement and in-depth digital data analysis. All units provide an integrated high-resolution XGA display.

Tektronix will be in Booth SU4141.
