Tektronix designed its newest waveform monitor, the 4.5 Diamond WFM5250, with the challenges of delivering video anywhere, any time, in mind. It can monitor both the video and audio quality of HDMA with HDCP. With this capability, operators can test set-top box firmware in the lab without needing dedicated HDMI protocol analyzers, Tektronix says. Additionally, the WFM5250 can be used to troubleshoot applications at remote headends. This objective look at set-top box output, combined with monitoring sources and transport networks, gives operators a "complete view of picture quality" and allows them to "determine exactly where issues are arising that impact the service," a Diamonds judge said. All while providing loudness monitoring for CALM Act compliance. Visit Tektronix online.Return to the main Diamond Technology Reviews Program.
