WVR-5200 | Multiformat / Multistandard Compact Rasterizer

The WVR-5200 Compact Video Waveform Rasterizer provides an ideal solution for basic video and audio (with Option AUD) monitoring needs. Everything neatly wrapped in a convenient 1RU, half-rack, short-depth form factor, suitable for space-constrained environments.


  • 1RU height, Half-rack Width, Short-depth makes it ideal for Space-constrained Environments
  • Four SDI Inputs with Multiformat, Multistandard Support
  • Tektronix-patented Diamond and Arrowhead Displays for Colour Gamut Compliance Monitoring

Wide array of applications

Mobile & Studio production – For most realistic viewing experience of your live event you should correct setup, alignment and matching of cameras.
Post Production – Every colourist or editor would appreciate well maintained video signal thanks to easily adjusted and reliable colour fidelity.
Facility Operations – You will get trusted monitoring & analysis even while transcoding from HD to 4K or SDR to HDR.

Tektronix WFM-8200 is an alternative advanced waveform monitor.
