Harris To Show Videotek Test And Measurement Advances At NAB

Harris has announced new additions to its Videotek test and measurement portfolio.
The new products—which will be displayed at the 2012 NAB Show (Booth N2502) in Las Vegas—solve a host of signal monitoring and measurement challenges for 3 Gb/s 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. These are just some of the challenges our new products solve for customers."
New is the Videotek TVM-VTM-JEM3 multi-format jitter evaluation monitor, ideally suited for mobile production trucks and central machine rooms. 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 — ideal for checking incoming feeds for mobile units.
Harris also adds loudness compliance to its Videotek Multi-Source Analyzer Series of products (MSA-100 and MSA-300). The new MSA-OPT-LOUD option measures input signals and issues alarms for non-compliant audio. Harris will also show a software upgrade prototype that integrates its LLM-1770 loudness logger and monitor with Harris ADC automation to provide as-run records of loudness levels for recently-aired programming.
