News Image
Omnitek has announced that it will launch its new Broadcast Waveform Rasterizer at NAB 2017, Booth C7915.

The Ultra TQ is a fully equipped waveform rasterizer for the broadcast market, and features functionality from the Ultra 4K Tool Box and the Ultra XR products to provide a comprehensive set of tools to support broadcasters with the challenges posed by HDR and WCG production.

The waveform rasterizer supports analysis and generation of SD, HD and 3G-SDI formats as standard with an upgrade path to 4K/UHD if needed. It is aimed at broadcast production, engineering, OB, operations and control rooms.

The Analyser instruments within the Ultra TQ include Picture, Waveform monitor, Vectorscope, gamut meters, full audio monitoring and loudness measurement, video timing, video/audio status monitoring, event logging and closed caption logging as standard.

The Picture monitor provides a high-quality HD display with closed captions overlay, safe area cages and O-Zone – Omnitek's false colour display for HDR and SDR production.

The full resolution Waveform monitor can display YCbCr or YRGB and provides full horizontal and vertical zoom of single, multiple or all line displays. Analysis can be made of full frame video or Region of Interest.

Audio Meters display 16 audio channels with industry standard ballistics and scales. Loudness Meter supports ITU-R BS.1770 and EBU RP 128 to allow program or continual loudness logging.

In addition, Ultra TQ provides full logging of all physical and functional parameters of the video signal against timecode, ideal for program QC and Compliance

The integrated line test pattern generator allows the generation of 38 line-patterns. This can be upgraded to a full test pattern generator with a range of moving and static zone plates and test sequences.

Physical layer analysis and advanced physical layer analysis are available as options for use anywhere signal integrity needs to be checked.

Omnitek will continue to roll out new functionality on its Ultra family of products with its established customer base with 4K/UHD/12G-SDI equipment manufacturers and 4K/UHD/HDR post production houses.

The NAB software release for the Ultra family adds full audio and loudness monitoring, enhanced high dynamic range analysis and other functionality. This builds on the recent V3.2 release which added Omnitek's O-Zone false colour display for HDR and SDR material, closed caption/subtitle display and full timecode based logging of events.

Rob Arnold, Head of Worldwide Sales at Omnitek, said: "We're really excited to be launching the new Ultra TQ at NAB only just a year after the successful launch of the Ultra XR. The Ultra TQ is a clear indication that Omnitek's proven track record for leading-edge test & measurement equipment is maintained. Our engineers' experience, spread over the past 16 years, enables us to provide fully comprehensive and sophisticated solutions for real-world customer requirements at product launch."
