Please note this is a Used Tektronix WFM 5200 3G/HD/SD Waveform Monitor. ES Broadcast carefully tests all used equipment prior to sale, and offers a three-month warranty. Images shown are for illustrative purposes only and may not be of the specific model offered for sale. Accurate pictures of this model are available on request.
The Tektronix WFM 5200 is a basic, yet efficient, portable waveform monitor for adjusting and balancing cameras in broadcast studios, OB vans or field locations.
Used units with or without AUD and LOUD audio and loudness monitoring are available, depending on your requirements. Please call us on +44 (0)1923 650 080 to discuss the precise configuration that suits you.
A particular highlight of Tekronix’s WFM 5200 series waveform monitors is the ability to include TandemVu (waveform + vector) for precise camera alignment. Multi-camera balancing, meanwhile, is made simple with the waveform monitor’s Multiple Input Mode.
Quality Control (QC)
The WFM5200 offers the user in-depth monitoring and analysis of digital data, including ANC data. For units with these options installed, you can also use the WFM5200 for audio loudness monitoring and measurements.
Applications for the Tektronix WFM 5200
Mobile & Studio Production
To deliver spectacular images, proper set-up, alignment and matching of your cameras before an event is vital. The Tektronix WFM 5200, with its Multiple Input Mode, allows you to precisely match each of your cameras for consistently brilliant imaging across all your shots.
The WFM 5200’s easy-to-understand displays provide the minute detail which editors or colourists need to adjust colour fidelity with absolute confidence.
