Copenhagen, Denmark (August 28, 2009)–DK-Technologies has introduced a remote unit for its PT0760M HD/SD Multi-channel Video Waveform Monitor.
The PT0760-R is a remote unit that allows engineers to access the facilities of the PT0760M from an entirely different location. With this unit in place, an engineer on location can see exactly the same audio and video display as the engineer in the master control room. Engineers using the remote can independently access all the facilities of the PT0760M without interrupting the use at the master location.
DK’s new remote offers the same display as the PT0760M and gives users access to a set of soft keys that replicate those on the main unit. Both the PT0760M and the PT0760-R display can be independently controlled, allowing for either identical or individual display of video and/or audio signals at both locations.
A simple DVI interface between Master and Slave is provided and the unit follows a standard interface protocol, allowing any DVI/DCC interface to extend the distance between the remote and master units.
As the PT0760-R has the same footprint as the PT0760M it can also be fitted alongside the master unit, thus providing a second metering position with individual controls.
Both the PT0760M and the PT0760-R benefit from DK’s latest software update. The PT0760M master unit also now has plug and play capability and incorporates Dolby Digital and Dolby E decoding, either from embedded audio within the HD/SD video or through separate AES inputs via a Dolby decoder module.
Aimed at outside broadcast vehicles, production studios, master control rooms and camera control units, the units offer video and audio metering including HD/SD audio de-embedding, surround sound metering, Peak Program level measurements of up to 16 audio channels, seven directly selectable scales to conform to in-house standards and access to DK’s new ITU 1770 Loudness meter, which uses an approved ITU algorithm.
