DK-Technologies Announces PT0760M Software Update

pt0760m-dual-waveform-3d.JPGDK-Technologies has announced an important software update for its ground-breaking PT0760M HD/SD Multi-channel Video Waveform Monitor.

The software update has resulted in a much simpler menu structure, making it easier for customer to navigate the PT0760M’s extensive video and audio features. The unit also now has plug and play capability and incorporates Dolby Digital and Dolby E decoding, either from embedded audio within the HD/SD video or through separate AES inputs via a Dolby decoder module.

The PT0760M can also provide analogue or AES audio outputs with integral level control. This allows the PT0760M to provide an integrated solution for managing and monitoring Dolby Digital 5.1 coded audio signals.

“Since its launch at NAB 2008, we have worked very hard to improve the user experience,? says Richard Kelley, DK-Technologies’ Director of Sales and Marketing. “We have listened to our customers and reacted positively to them. This software update has resulted in a unit that is much more flexible and much simpler to operate.?

The new software will be installed in all future units, while existing PT0760M customers can download it free of charge without the need to return their units to the company.

Launched at NAB 2008, the award-winning PT0760M is effectively four HD/SD waveform monitors in one box. This lightweight and easy to operate unit is aimed at Outside Broadcast vehicles, production studios, Master Control Rooms and Camera Control Units.

Its unique feature set includes four separate auto-sensing HD/SD inputs that allow for the simultaneous display of four individual waveform monitors showing G, R, B, Y, Cb, Cr and Luminance, plus a vectorscope is also included. The PT0760M has a DVI output that enables the user to view multiple screens on a single external display. The images can comprise of all four waveform monitors and the selected audio metering.

Ease of use is a key feature of the new meter and to ensure this, DK has provided 11 user presets, user definable Gamut error settings and 10 user definable soft keys for fast set-up. Horizontal and vertical zoom is achieved via an inbuilt jogwheel and the unit also has an internal memory.

The PTO760M incorporates DK-Technologies’ MSD range of audio software, which feature the company’s unique JellyFish™ and StarFish™ displays for stereo and surround sound monitoring. This perfect combination of video and audio metering includes HD/SD audio de-embedding, surround sound metering, Peak Programme level measurements of up to 16 audio channels and seven directly selectable scales to conform to in-house standards. Users choosing this combined option also benefit from DK’s new ITU 1770 Loudness meter, which uses an approved ITU algorithm – an extension of Leq(RLB) – covering stereo and monophonic audio signals.
