    WFM520UPAUD - Overview

    If you are already the proud owner of a Tektronics WFM5200 Waveform Monitor and you need to add 16 channel embedded AES audio monitoring (including Multichannel Surround Sound Display) then the WFM520UP-AUD option is what you need! This is a post sale upgrade option only! The WFM5200 is sold separately.

    The WFM5200 (with Option AUD) provides high-quality digital filtering and oversampling to insure precise, reliable, and repeatable audio measurements. The instrument provides 16-channel embedded digital audio monitoring with Audio Bars, Lissajous Displays, Surround Display, and a front-panel headphone port for easy compliance verification of digital audio without the need for an additional piece of equipment. Flexible mapping of the embedded audio inputs to the audio bar displays allows for a variety of audio mixes to be supported from multiple stereo signals to surround and stereo support.

    The Surround Sound display provides intuitive graphical representation of channel interaction in a surround sound system. The Bars display provides indication for faults, audio levels, and provides indication of the presence of a Dolby format. The flexible Lissajous display allows the selection of any two audio channels.

    Loudness measurements are made to ITU-R BS.1770-3/1771, EBU R 128, and ATSC A/85 recommendations. A Loudness meter (with Option LOUD) is available within the Audio display that provides Short and Infinite Loudness measurements. The Loudness session display graphically plots Loudness measurements over time, from 90 seconds to 30 hours. The Loudness measurements can be downloaded through the network or saved to USB for further analysis.

    Specialized audio displays provide deeper inspection of the signal and make the WFM5200 instrument a comprehensive compact waveform and audio monitor. The audio session displays summarize levels, faults, and number of active bits for each channel. These instruments also feature Audio Control Packet Data and Channel Status displays.

    The Dolby metadata can be monitored within the instrument using the Dolby Status display that gives an in-depth view of VANC Dolby metadata that complies with the SMPTE 2020 standard. The user can also choose to monitor Dolby E guardband timing information from one of the embedded audio channels.

    The WFM5200 Compact Multi-Format Multi-Standard Video Waveform Monitor from Tektronix provides an ideal solution for basic video and audio (with Option AUD) monitoring needs with an integrated high-brightness, low-power consumption LED backlit display in a convenient 3RU, half-rack, short-depth form factor, suitable for space-constrained environments. This versatile instrument can accept power from a 12 V DC source, a battery, or a 100-240 V AC converter.

    This instrument provides the reliability of the Tektronix waveform monitors family in a portable, basic monitoring product. Perfect applications for the Tektronix WFM-5200 include: Camera Monitoring (Camera Shading) in Mobile Trucks (OB Vans) and Production Studio Control Rooms, Color Correction and Manipulation, Content Editing and Special Effects, Content Quality Control (QC) in Production and Post Production, Field Production Setup and Troubleshooting and Compliance Checking in Distribution and Broadcast.
