To help tackle the test and monitoring challenges arising from the transition from SDI to an all-IP infrastructure, Tektronix is demonstrating new capabilities for Prism IP
These include analysis of PTP synchronisation timing, support for SMPTE ST 2022-7 redundancy and SMPTE ST 2110, IGMP V3 and new API support for easy system integration into network management systems, as well as IP stream capture for deep dive analysis.
These capabilities offer broadcast and network engineers real-time monitoring and analysis of IP streams and the associated content, enabling early identification and diagnosis of network or content issues, according to the company.
Tektronix has also introduced a suite of 4K HDR features on the Prism platform. These enable high-quality live production in OB vans, trucks or studios by ensuring consistent look of images in mixed and multi-camera HDR and SDR environments using different colour spaces (BT.709 and BT.2020).
Also introduced at IBC is the new single link 12G-SDI interface on Prism including eye-pattern display capabilities.
