DekTec Debuts SdEye 3.0
With a DTU-351 SDI to USB-3 adaptor and a notebook, SdEye makes an ultra-portable SDI waveform monitor.
Feature-rich real-time SDI waveform monitoring software expands tools for real-time and offline analysis of SDI signals.
The new DekTec SdEye 3.0 can display four SDI feeds at the same time with audio bars and closed captioning overlay. The four SDI inputs for this multiviewer can come from the DTA-2174 which offers four fully independent inputs, configurable as SDI SD/HD/3G, or 4K multi-link. Other supported input adaptors are available in PCI and USB-2 for SD-SDI, PCIe and USB-3 for HD-SDI, i5 minimum, Windows or Linux only.
The DTA-2174 provides four SDI inputs.
In addition to the new multi SDI view, version 3.0 provides decoding and analysis of VANC metadata packets per SMPTE 2020, and 4K UHD analysis. These additions compliment the reliable analysis capabilities of SdEye, which include CRC error checking, a freeze-mode buffer for offline analysis, and a confidence-monitoring window that displays all critical information in a comprehensive matrix.
Four 3G-SDI ports, a genlock port and DekTec Matrix API 2.0 enables users to create professional applications for encoding, transcoding, transmission, etc. with ease. External synchronization of SDI outputs via port 1 (digital genlock), or with analog genlock port accepting bi- and tri-level sync.
The DTU-351 USB-3 adaptor transfers full SDI frames for access to all video lines, 16 audio channels and any HANC or VANC packet.
StreamXpert provides real-time transport-stream analyzer application software for real-time analysis of transport streams. Combine SdEye and the StreamXpert to get a complete set of tools for analysis of compressed and uncompressed digital video signals.
SdEye 3.0 displays pictures, YCbCr/RGB waveforms, vectorscope and has a peak meter. It decodes HANC and VANC streams. Real-time raw SDI data display includes luminance/chrominance threshold settings for showing out-of-range pixel values.
For audio, it has a peak meter for all 16 audio channels and it provides EIA 608/708 Closed Caption analysis, and offline .dtsdi file analysis. Audible audio using PC speaker output.
DekTec's feature-rich real-time SDI waveform monitoring software offers a complete set of tools for real-time and offline analysis of SDI signals at great value for money.
