Product Highlights

The WM-3001 is an HDTV waveform monitor which is compact, lightweight and portable, designed to monitor the pictures being shot during live broadcasts, on location or in the studio. The monitor can also be powered by the camera battery pack, so pictures can be viewed absolutely anywhere. The monitor comes with a number of modes: the picture mode in which the input video is displayed in color, the waveform mode which displays it as waveforms, the vectorscope mode that displays it as vectors, and the status mode in which the data is dumped. A low-temperature polysilicon thin-film transistor (TFT) LCD panel is used for the monitor’s display. The input signals support 20 different video formats in all, including 19 HDTV formats and one SDTV format. HDTV SDI and SDTV SDI digital signals and HDTV analog signals can easily be selected. An HDTV SDI signal refers to a 1.485 Gbps NRZ serial digital signal, while an SDTV SDI signal refers to a 270 Mbps NRZ serial digital signal. The formats supported for HDTV are 1080/60i, 1035/60i, 720/60p, 720/24p, 1080/24p, 1080/24sF, 1080/30p, 1080/30sF, 1080/25p, 1080/25sF and 1080/50i. For SDTV, the WM-3001 supports the 525/60i format with frequency rates of 1.000 and 1/1.001. The field frequencies (60/59.94 Hz, 24/23.98 Hz, etc.) of each format are automatically supported.
