Prasar Bharati will use Tektronix WFM91D Handheld Waveform Monitors
in a mixed analogue and digital environment for studio maintenance
and field production work. Because the WFM91D is a dual standard
monitor, it eliminates the need for the broadcaster to purchase
separate analogue and digital monitoring instruments. As part of
the WFM91D's flexibility, the instrument will auto detect whether
the incoming signal is composite analog video or standard definition
digital video and configure itself accordingly.
As Prasar Bharati moves Doordarshan from analogue to digital it
is looking to keep maintenance issues as simple as possible. The
flexibility of the Tektronix WFM91D in its portability and its ability
to move seamlessly between analog and digital sources allows Prasar
Bharati to cost-effectively serve over 362 million viewers with
the highest quality signals.
The Tektronix WFM91D Handheld Waveform Monitor is a handheld, multifunction
monitor ideally suited to the monitoring needs of field production,
equipment installation or any situation where portability and battery
operation is required for analysis of analogue composite video and
standard definition digital systems. The high-resolution, 4 in./102
mm color LCD display provides a clear picture of the incoming video
Alternately, the waveform, vector or audio displays may be shown
full-screen or overlaid in monochrome on top of the color picture
display. In addition to the integrated LCD display, a composite
video output enables routing to an external display.
