Cerify version 7.4 keeps pace with the file-based workflow evolution
Cerify automates the QC of file-based video and audio, and now includes a series of new enhancements in the version 7.4 software release. Significant speed improvements now enable Cerify to test content at many times faster than real-time. A growing list of supported files enable Cerify to start processing files as they are being ingested, resulting in an improved workflow efficiency. Keeping pace with emerging new mezzanine standards, Cerify now supports testing of DNxHD and JPEG2000 mezzanine formats. The addition of teletext and DVB subtitling s strengthens the existing 608/708 caption support. Learn More
New Fully Featured WFM2200 Portable Waveform Monitors Helps Engineers in the Field
Intuitive to operate, the WFM2200 makes it easy for technicians to quickly and efficiently find, diagnose and fix signal or content quality problems in the field. This portable HD, SD and 3G-SDI capable waveform monitor features a large, bright LED back-lit display, and a replaceable and rechargeable battery which eliminates down time. It’s sharp “CRT-like” display helps broadcast engineers and technicians quickly identify signal issues and recognize problems within the video and audio signals. It also pairs signal generation with waveform analysis, making it ideal for verifying link performance between two broadcast facility devices. The WFM2200 displays the external reference as an analog signal to check the quality of the video sync pulse signal, and the Tektronix patented timing display helps to ensure facility system timing.

New Generation TG8000 SD/HD/3G-SDI Video Generator for comprehensive test & evaluation
The new TG8000 Signal Generator offers robust, comprehensive SD/HD and 3G-SDI signal generation for design and evaluation of professional video equipment such as routers, servers, encoders and transcoders. Its new SDI7 module provides support for a wide variety of formats and standards (including 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and SD-SDI) in a single module, which provides greater flexibility in generating a range of test patterns.
SD/HD/3G-SDI generation with EMB audio and ANC Data provide the test density required for testing in manufacturing and installation in broadcast operations. The circle, multi-language text, and color logo overlays can be applied to the generated test signals to check aspect ratio, identify streams or apply station logos. A flexible upconverter provides a 3G-SDI or HD Dual link test signal from single full motion HD-SDI file. A deep test signal library includes a moving zone plate test signal, critical when testing codecs. Learn More
