Analog and digital HD-SDI video have many of the same constraints, and many of the problems that may occur in the digital domain are a result of incorrect analog source video. Therefore, it is important to have standards to reference for the design and operation of both analog and digital HD-SDI video devices.
For many, the HD-SDI video implementation will be part of a hybrid environment, adding complexity to the process of measurement, monitoring and analysis. Tektronix HD-SDI Video tools are designed for multi-format, multi-standard support and provide familiar user interfaces. Tektronix test & measurement tools and technical content will help guide you through the transition process of bringing HD-SDI Video services on line and ensuring operational efficiency.
|High Definition Analog Component Measurement|
Despite the benefits of digital signal processing, the final signal received by the customer is still converted to an analog signal for display on a picture monitor. With the proliferation of a wide variety of digital devices - set-top boxes, Digital Versatile Disk (DVD) players and PC cards - comes a wide range of video formats beside the standard composite output. It is therefore necessary to understand the requirements for measuring analog component High Definition (HD) signals in order to test the performance of these devices.
