Tektronix: Waveform monitors meet key 4K needs12 September 2014
Tektronix is showcasing its WFM8200 and WFM8300 waveform monitors and WVR8200 and WVR8300 rasterizers. Tektronix recently announced they can now be easily upgraded via software to support 4K and UHDTV1, eliminating the need for customers to purchase costly hardware replacements in order to shoot, prepare and deliver 4K/UHDTV1 programming.
The WFM8200 and WFM8300 waveform monitors and WVR8200 and WVR8300 rasterizers can perform a broad range of 4K measurements including four tile displays of waveform, picture, vector, gamut and eye diagram for YPbPr formats. These comprehensive measurement capabilities enable users to reduce the time to isolate, diagnose and remedy system issues and design faults.
The software upgradeable platform at the heart of each model uses a high performance architecture designed from the outset to support the throughput requirements of 4K content. Their combination of capabilities, features, performance and upgradeability make them ideal for meeting the 4K requirements of equipment manufacturers, post-production houses, broadcasters and other video service providers.
