CESI, which is responsible for the development of China’s DTV standard, will use the Tektronix PQA500 picture quality analyzer (shown), as well as the WR7120 waveform rasterizer and RSA6100A real-time spectrum analyzer.

Tektronix has introduced the VM6000, an automatic video measurement set that runs on a new hardware platform and replaces the VM5000.

Equipped with high-speed signal acquisition hardware, optimized video measurement algorithms, and an integrated, high-performance oscilloscope, the VM6000 offers the performance and flexibility required for testing digital television (DTV) reception and playout devices.

The VM6000 is well suited for the design of next-generation digital set-top boxes, video semiconductors, integrated HDTV tuner/decoders, PC graphics cards, DVD players, multimedia PCs and gaming consoles. The VM6000 can be used for design and development, quality/audit test, certification and compliance test, and automated production test applications.

The VM6000 also can test component analog video signals and is capable of testing SD (480i, 480p, 576i and 576p) and HD (720p, 1080i and 1080p) video formats to user selected tolerance limit.
