Omnitek to attend HPA Tech Retreat

BASINGSTOKE, UK July 6th 2016 – Innovative Test & Measurement manufacturer, Omnitek, will be at the HPA Tech Retreat at Heythrop Park, Oxfordshire on 13th and 14th July, where Mike Hodson, company President will be in attendance to demonstrate the 4K/UHD analysis, conversion and generation capabilities of the Ultra XR and 4K Tool Box.

The Ultra XR Advanced Waveform Analyzer, which starts shipping this month, is configured specifically for content creators, colourists, post-production editors and other processors of DI, working with ultra-high resolution UHD images delivered over QL 3G, DL 6G or 12G SDI and HDMI links. The XR provides all the traditional tools expected to work with DI but is engineered with 4K/UHD in mind and supports 12-bit 4:4:4 SDI input formats in YCbCr and RGB, along with Wide Colour Gamut RGB - ITU-R BT.2020 and High Dynamic Range (HDR) inputs - ST2084 / PQ and Hybrid Log Gamma.

Complementing the XR at the show, the Ultra 4K Tool Box, has been shipping since summer 2015 and provides comprehensive diagnosis tools such as 12G-SDI Eye & Jitter analysis and full raster-video capture and playout (including ANC information). The 4K Tool Box was created to help with product design and 4K system infrastructure testing for 4K equipment manufacturers to develop and debug 4K applications with confidence.

"Omnitek have been working in the Test & Measurement domain for the past 15 years and our experienced engineers have now developed our 4th generation ‘Ultra’ series of products to address the ongoing needs required in the 4K/UHD domain. The HPA Tech Retreat has always been an important date in our diary and I’m looking forward to answering questions from the always well informed attendees." said Mike Hodson, President at Omnitek.
