This unit supports SD-SDI (ITU-R BT.601) monitoring only. Audio functionality includes (16) channels of embedded audio and (1) input for (2) channels of digital AES audio.

The monitor offers CRT-like traces, patented gamut displays, picture thumbnail, display freeze, and an error log for 10,000 events for content compliance verification. Digital audio monitoring support includes audio bars, lissajous displays, and a front-panel headphone port. It can accept power from a 12VDC source, a battery, or a 100 to 240VAC converter.

Possible applications for this unit include confidence monitoring of SDI video and uncompressed digital audio, compliance checking in distribution and broadcast, content QA in production and post-production work, and portable monitoring on camera and field production. The unit is housed in a 3RU half-rack width short-depth chassis to accommodate space-constrained environments.
This unit features an intuitive user interface with backlit buttons and online help and furthermore offers (32) user-configurable presets that can be used for custom functions.
Its display offers sharp CRT-like trace quality for clear waveform monitoring with the look and feel of an analog display.
Tektronix's patented displays alow colorists, editors, and operators to visualize whether content is compliant at a glance.
Selectable View
A range of display options lets users choose how they want information displayed on the monitor, allowing you to customize your display to meet your preferences and needs.
Multiple Status Parameters
The unit offers a breadth of statistical information to gauge status, including but not limited to alarms, quality statistics, and logging.
Controls for multiple audio parameters allows you to manage both embedded and digital AES audio signals.
