Telestream has updated its PRISM Waveform Monitor software to offer video format support for post production applications beyond broadcast television, faster switching of IP inputs, and Dolby ED2 metadata support.
According to the company, the half a second faster switching of IP inputs means that camera shading operators can make comparisons quickly and efficiently regardless of whether they are working in an IP, SDI, or hybrid facility.
Version 3.3 also supports DCI 4K post production resolutions up to 4096×2160 and refresh rates from 23.98 to 60p for everything from cinematic to broadcast workflows.
The latest version also offers Dolby ED2 metadata decoding which is used for Dolby Atmos and guard band measurement for comprehensive audio monitoring.
Other new features include:
- AV Delay Measurement for SDI, ST2022-6 and ST2110-20/30/31 using the AV delay test signal from Telestream Sync Pulse Generator products.
- Safe Area display with AFD graticule allows users to ensure that text, graphics, and important information like weather, headline, and school closure crawls are visible on consumer’s displays irrespective of aspect ratio and production aperture size.
- Colorised RGB Parade Waveform / Stop display for ease of use and quick operation.
- Larger floating timecode display allows timecode to be easily visible no matter how the tiles are configured.
“As the dividing lines between film and TV production blur, we are adding capability to the PRISM platform to extend the format capability in SDI and IP to meet these needs for a broad range of customers doing higher-end post work,” said Charlie Dunn, SVP, Video Test, Synchronisation and Quality Assurance Business Unit.
“Now that ST-2110 can be considered mainstream, we are adding the expected capability to measure AV-Delay, Dolby E/ED2, and enable a seamless switch so that the benefits of an IP infrastructure can be realised without any operational compromises.”
