The Videotek CVM-306-3GB Compact Multiformat Signal Analyzer from Imagine Communications is designed to deliver integrated video and audio signal monitoring. The CVM-306-3GB possesses two triple-rate (3G/HD/SD) inputs and selectable waveform, vector, gamut, timing, and full-screen picture display. You can meter all 16 channels of embedded audio or the one AES input, with integrated speakers that can monitor any two selected channels. You can also customize the integrated LCD display with independent sizing and positioning of waveform, vector and picture, or select from the waveform or timing; vector or gamut; audio, alarm pane or alarm status; and picture quad displays. This 3RU signal analyzer is approximately 7" deep. An 11-17 VDC power input comes standard, and low power consumption allows the use of convection cooling for silent operation.
