The Go-To Tool

The Go-To Tool

The 8000 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 or 4K/UHD 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.

Upgrades. When Needed & Where Needed

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

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.

Highlights

  • Video: 3G/HD/SD-SDI, 4K/UHD with High Dynamic Range (HDR)
  • Audio: Analog, AES/EBU, Dolby E, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus

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
