Upgrades. When Needed & Where Needed

Thumbnail

The 8000 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 4K/UHD, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut (WCG). This easy software-only upgrade path obviates purchasing new equipment when transitioning from HD workflows to 4K/UHD workflows.

Highlights

  • 4K/UHD support: Requires Options 4K, 3G, and 2SDI
  • HDR support: Requires Option PROD

Performance You Need to Go Above & Beyond

The 8000 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.

Highlights

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