Harris has made several new additions to its Videotek test and measurement portfolio.
The new products, which will be displayed at NAB in Las Vegas next month, aim to solve signal monitoring and measurement challenges for 3Gbps signals, DTV transport streams and audio loudness compliance.
“These new Videotek products were designed in response to the changing needs and demands facing broadcasters worldwide,” said David Guerrero, vice president and general manager, Videotek test and measurement solutions, Harris Broadcast Communications.
“Broadcasters need solutions that test and monitor multiple formats and signals in one device. They also need monitoring solutions that ensure compliance with the Calm Act to regulate loudness levels of broadcast content.”
The Videotek TVM-VTM-JEM3 multi-format jitter evaluation monitor is suited for mobile production trucks and central machine rooms, according to Harris.
Its built-in test generator confirms jitter tolerance to ensure SMPTE video standards compliance, providing five different jitter levels and frequencies ranging from 50 Hz to 500 kHz. The unit also measures SDI signal integrity.
Harris has also added loudness compliance to its Videotek Multi-Source Analyzer Series of products.
