The Tektronix WFM90D/WFM91D are handheld, multifunction monitors ideally suited to the monitoring needs of field production, equipment installation or any situation where portability and battery operation is required for analysis of analog composite video and 270 Mbps - SDI systems. The combination of features and monitoring modes provided makes these instruments powerful enough to set up, time and troubleshoot complex video and audio systems, combining the power of four separate instruments in the palm of your hand.

The high-resolution, 4 in./102 mm color LCD display provides a clear picture of the incoming video signal. Alternately, the waveform, vector or audio displays may be shown full-screen or any one may be cut into any corner of the display. In addition to the LCD display, a composite video output supplies a monochrome waveform, vector or audio display, either full-screen or cut into a color picture.

As a waveform monitor, the WFM90D/WFM91D provides all the features expected on a basic, single-channel monitor: external reference; 1H, 2H and 2F sweeps; X1, X5 and variable vertical gain; flat and luminance filters. The external reference input allows users to perform the system timing adjustments critical to sophisticated field productions. In addition to these basic features, an alarm mode, where the waveform's color changes above 100 IRE (WFM90D) or 700 mV (WFM91D), provides quick feedback when video levels exceed accepted standards.

The WFM90D/91D also reports presence/absence of EDH packet, FF/AP CRC Errored Seconds and Cable Length Margin Flag. All display controls are selected through simple, on-screen menus.

Whether adjusting a camera's black/white balance or adjusting chroma levels and hues on a time base corrector, the WFM90D/WFM91D Composite Vector Mode provides the needed display controls. Variable, X1 and X5 gain settings and a 360 degree phase shifter are selectable via on-screen menus, as is 75% or 100% bars for the WFM90D.
