WFM8300 Waveform Monitor

Tektronix, a provider of video quality monitoring solutions, has announced that it will be offering its 4k-upgraded WFM8300 Waveform Monitor with UHDTV1 (3840x2160) content. The solution illustrates how Tektronix protects investments by giving customers a direct upgrade path without the need to replace existing products.

The WFM8300 Waveform Monitor uses a high-performance architecture designed from the outset to support the throughput requirements of 4K content. This means that existing users as well as those who are in the process of making infrastructure decisions can avoid the considerable extra expense of having to purchase new waveform monitors when moving to 4K.

‘Deploying 4K is a significant step and investment for any organization. Customers who purchase or have already purchased the WFM8300 will be able to add 4K support as a simple upgrade. By giving its customers a direct upgrade path, Tektronix is reducing both risk and expense, ’ said Eben Jenkins, general manager, Video Product Line, Tektronix.

‘What’s more, customers can continue to purchase the equipment they need for their existing requirements, secure in the knowledge that when the time comes to roll out 4K, they can easily upgrade. This level of investment protection is a direct result of Tektronix commitment to staying ahead of the technology curve.’
