Top Waveform Monitoring

Audio & Loudness included

The PT0760 introduces a unique combination of Audio, Loudness and Waveform monitoring at the highest precision, allowing it to blend into virtually any metering application.

In addition PT0760 allows for Video and Audio source switching as well as quality Audio volume control on selectable audio outputs.

With its modular hardware approach and highly customizable user interface, the PT0760 comes is one of the most versatile Waveform Monitors / Audio and Loudness Meters on the market today.

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.


Dolby E Decoding

Dolby E encodes up to 8 channels of audio plus consumer and professional
metadata information and carries it within a digital audio pair in a SDI stream or
on a single AES3 audio channel. The PT0760M de-embeds the Dolby encoded
signal, decodes that signal back to its constituent parts and then presents full
audio metering of the signal and provides an output.

The PT0760M can deliver an audio downmix of the de-embedded and decoded
signals derived using the coefficients set in the Dolby metadata. This can provide
a health check as well as quality checking. Dolby metadata can also be shown onscreen

Modular Hardware

Build Your Configuration 

The modular hardware structure of the PT0760 allows you to completely define the specific inputs and outputs formats, be it Anlogue, AES, HD/SD SDI or Dolby E decoding.

Additionally, the PT0760 features both ethernet and USB control and Loudness Logging interfaces alongside the DVI screen out, enabling external screen hookup.
