WFM/WVR7200 Waveform Monitor

WFM/WVR7200 Waveform Monitor

The 7200 Series waveform monitor and rasterizer is the go-to tool for mobile and studio production, post production, and facility operations.

It is as valuable in camera setup, as it is for color grading and correction, and overall quality control of content generated in HD with HDR. Available in 3RU half-rack with built-in display or 1RU rasterizer with external display, it optimizes quality, and ensures signal integrity and regulatory compliance.

Troubleshoot with A Single Tool, Anywhere in The Workflow

Analyze video, audio, and ancillary data content originated in various formats and standards. This versatility aids troubleshooting of any content and signal quality issue, wherever it occurs in the workflow.

  • Video: 3G/HD/SD-SDI with High Dynamic Range (HDR)
  • Audio: Analog, AES/EBU, Dolby E, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus

Upgrades. When Needed & Where Needed

The 7200 Series waveform monitor and rasterizer can acquire extra functionality through software-only field upgrade options. This augments the installed HD/SD-SDI capability to provide analysis of High Dynamic Range (HDR). This easy software-only upgrade path obviates purchasing new equipment when transitioning from HD SDR workflows to HD HDR workflows.

  • HDR support: Requires Option PROD

Performance You Need to Go Above & Beyond

The 7200 Series waveform monitor and rasterizer offers optional physical layer analysis with eye pattern and jitter measurement. Difficult to quantify cable length measurements, in-depth digital data analysis, audio loudness, and audio/video delay measurements are all possible with this instrument.

  • Audio loudness monitoring as per ITU-R BS. 1770-3
  • Most comprehensive ANC data monitoring
  • Physical layer signal integrity analyzer
