Tektronix WFM7000 Analyzer
The key features for all models include:
High-resolution XGA display with the FlexVuTM Interface
and high-quality waveform processing, providing outstanding
picture and signal displays and exceptional flexibility in creating multi-view displays.
Extensive fault detection, alarm generation, error logging and status reporting, including quality statistics on both
video and audio content.
Up to four independent picture displays of the monitored input that can show different safe area graticules and decoded
closed caption services.
Proprietary Split Diamond and Arrowhead displays that help quickly detect and correct gamut problems.
Sophisticated audio level and phase displays, including an exclusive display for surround sound audio, which helps
reduce time and effort in creating and verifying audio content.
A proprietary Timing display that graphically shows the timing relationship between the input signal and an external
reference signal or a saved offset. This easy-to-interpret display, along with numeric readouts of vertical and horizontal
timing relationships, reduces time and effort in verifying and correcting signal timing.
User-defined menus (MyMenu) give easy access to frequently used operations and simplify instrument operations.
Up to 20 instrument presets organized in four groups of five presets per group for easy access, with user-definable
labels for quick identification.
A front-panel USB 2.0 port for easily storing and recalling captured data and instrument presets.
A convenient front-panel headphone port for quickly verifying sound quality. Simple touch screen controls let you quickly
check the stereo pairs shown on the audio bar display.
Network access and control through a simple, Web-page Interface
, a more complete Java-based remote control Interface
or by SNMP. Ground-closure remote control port with an alarm output and support for recalling instrument presets.
Support for printing the display and event log on USB printers.
CaptureVuTM capability that can capture a full frame of video data and can compare live to captured data on the
waveform, vector, gamut, and picture displays. Data can be captured using the touch-screen menu or triggered by up
to 14 alarm conditions. Captured data can be stored on a USB flash drive for transfer to another instrument or to
a PC for more in-depth analysis.
Up to four independent displays of the signal characteristics of an SDI input, including Eye diagrams and measurements,
jitter readouts and bar display, jitter waveform display, and SDI status screen.
Two independent jitter measurements with separate high pass filters that offer simultaneous display of peak-to-peak
amplitudes of timing and alignment jitter.
Cable loss measurement with source level and cable length estimates based on user-specified cable type.
Extensive support for monitoring Dolby audio content, including auto-sensing Dolby formats, decoding Dolby content and
automatically configuring the appropriate audio level and phase displays, and showing decoded Dolby metadata.
