Tektronix Inc. announced its new WVR7100 Rasterizer for monitoring the quality of high-definition (HD) content. With the device, HD, standard definition (SD) and composite analog signals, as well as digital and analog audio can be all monitored from one instrument.

"As HD television becomes more prevalent, those producing HD programming need a high quality, intuitive and flexible monitoring solution that provides the confidence necessary to deliver on the promise of HDTV," said Todd Biddle, VP of Video Product Line for Tektronix. "The WVR7100 brings to television organizations the full support for HD along with all of the features and reliability found in the successful WVR6000 series of Rasterizers, including the simplified user interface and the powerful, flexible FlexVu display."

With the FlexVu display, users customers can configure their instrument to display waveform, vector, gamut, picture, alarm screens, error log and audio signal levels. According to the company, the WVR7100 is the only HD Rasterizer with the de facto industry standard, Tektronix-patented, gamut displays (diamond, split diamond and arrowhead) that ensure that the broadcast material meets gamut compliance in the component and composite color spaces.

Other features

The new WVR7100 is designed with passive loop through inputs, which makes it one of the industry's only HD Rasterizer that can be installed within the actual signal path, so that the signal being monitored is the signal viewers see. It supports two passive loop-through HD SDI inputs of the prevalent HD formats (720p, 1035i, 1080i, 1080p and 1080sF) at a variety of frame rates.

The user interface for the WVR7100 is extremely intuitive and access to key functionality is available with the touch of one button, a press release from the company stated. The shallow menu structure allows the user to quickly access all of the unit's key functionality.
