WFM Luminance and Vector mirrored WFM Luminance and CbCr with Audio mirrored

Introducing the DK T7 Waveform Monitor

Audio & Loudness included

The DK T7++ now delivers ultra fast and high resolution Waveform Monitoring. On top of this it includes the DK T7++ Audio & Loudness engine for simultaneous Video and Audio metering – Literally the best of both worlds…

Every TV and Post Production editing suite realizes the need for monitoring both video and audio quality parameters during every day production. The application calls for a simple and easy to operate solution that delivers instant overview of the relevant video and audio parameters and results – The DK T7 Waveform Monitor is just that!

The DK T7 WFM combines the best of both worlds, by bringing together every day Waveform monitoring and Audio|Loudness displays in a tight cooperation forming the ultimate working tool.

Video Waveform 

The traditional video waveform display is used to show various aspects of the video components. Available video components are R, G, B, Y, Cb and Cr . The horizontal time base on the waveform display is selectable between line, field and frame and the vertical scale shows the signal level in percentage, voltage or hex values. Horizontal as well as vertical zooming is possible.

The parade display is a typical display mode in a monitoring situation. The video components are displayed side by side and amplitude errors are easily detected. In one view, many parameters of the video signal can be monitored to check and optimize the picture quality, e.g. gamut margin, dynamic range, exposure, black level, etc. In parade mode the levels of the different video components can easily be compared – e.g. for checking the white balance. There are three different parade modes which are Y, Cb, Cr, RGB and RGBY. Video overlay is also possible from selected elements on each channel to provide a combined image.
