MUMBAI: Tektronix, which provides test, measurement and monitoring solutions, has announced that Gearhouse Broadcast, a UK rental, sales, project solutions and systems integration company, has selected an extensive range of Tektronix waveform monitors.

The aim is to provide content verification capabilities in support of the 2006 World Cup. Gearhouse Broadcast will serve as a principal partner in providing technical production facilities to the host broadcaster in 12 cities throughout Germany for the 2006 World Cup.

The company which provides up-to-date digital technology, experience and expertise for major events, purchased a combined total of more than 50 Tektronix WFM700M and WFM601E Waveform Monitors for use during the broadcasts.

Gearhouse Broadcast MD Eamonn Dowdall says, "The World Cup broadcasts require an immense amount of verification and restoration, and we're proud to rely on the gold standard technology included in the Tektronix WFM range.

"The Tektronix WFM700 Series offers the monitoring capabilities needed in the production, post-production, distribution and transmission of high-definition (HD) and
standard-definition (SD) digital video content. It is basically everything a broadcaster needs for these applications in one package."

Tektronix video sales manager, Europe, Middle East and Africa Nicki Fisher says, "Monitoring digital video and audio quality continually presents new challenges to broadcasters everywhere.

"Ensuring high quality and high reliability is imperative for a broadcast as critical as the 2006 World Cup. Tektronix is thrilled to be chosen by a world-class broadcast operation for an equally world-class event. Gearhouse's choice of Tektronix is a dynamic endorsement of our technology."

The Tektronix WFM700 Series multi-format, multi-standard waveform monitors offer the monitoring and measurement capabilities needed in the production, post-production, distribution, and transmission of high-definition (HD) and standard-definition (SD) digital video and audio content.

With patented Diamond and Arrowhead gamut monitoring displays, Lightning display, session and status screens, a user-configurable multi-mode display, and eye and jitter measurements configurable for full field or line select, the WFM700 Series provides users with tools to enable quick error detection.

The WFM601A is an operational monitor useful to the graphics workstation, telecine or camera setup operator. The WFM601E extends the WFM601 platform to provide a more comprehensive evaluation of the digital transport layer and is used in digital production and master control operating centres. The WFM601M offers all of the video features of the
WFM601A and WFM601E, and provides data analysis capabilities for the installation and maintenance engineer.
