Classic XR, TQ, LAB and PQA (discontinued)
Waveform Rasterizers & Picture Quality Analyzer
The 'classic' XR, TQ, LAB and PQA products are now discontinued.
The classic Omnitek XR waveform monitor was designed specifically for colorists, post-production editors, and digital intermediates working with very high resolution HDTV and Dual-Link images. In 2003 Omnitek produced the world’s first native Dual-Link and 2K waveform monitor: the XR raised the performance of this system to a new standard. The rich feature set and highly configurable display enabled the user to customise the output according to their exact requirements. In 2008, we received the prestigious Queen's Award for Enterprise for the innovations introduced in this monitor.
The classic Omnitek TQ primarily addressed SD and HD broadcast monitoring applications. The feature set combined state-of-the-art waveform generation technology with a comprehensive range of audio and video monitoring and logging features. The main graphics display was completely configurable to enable the user to present the exact information required for their monitoring application.
The classic Omnitek LAB was, when it was introduced, the world's most comprehensive digital TV test signal generator and data analyzer. Designed to meet the needs of video research and development engineers, it was flexible, programmable, cost-effective, whilst supporting all SDTV and HDTV serial digital video formats. The LAB was unique in providing all the functions of a high-end signal generator totally integrated with a full-featured waveform monitor and video data analyzer. With the LAB, video engineers gained access to a complete test and measurement system in a single, easy-to-use, PC-based package.
The classic Omnitek PQA was a full-reference picture quality analysis system that provides all the tools necessary for R&D laboratories, broadcasters, and transmission engineers to make deterministic measurements of picture quality. These measurements included PSNR and macro-block detection. The innovative architecture allowed video images to be sourced either externally via two multi-format SDI inputs, or internally using the two full-motion uncompressed video sequence generators.
