Telestream Release PRISM Waveform Monitor Software V3.3

Telestream has announced the latest software for its PRISM family of hybrid IP/SDI waveform monitors. Version 3.3 adds significant new video format support for post production applications beyond broadcast television, faster switching of IP inputs, Dolby ED2 metadata support, and more to an already extensive collection of IP and SDI measurement tools.

Designed to be used in video engineering, operations, live acquisition, event production, and post production, PRISM includes specialized tools to maximize its usability with today’s wide color gamut, high dynamic range, and high-resolution formats. With faster switching of IP inputs, at around ½ second, camera shading operators can make comparisons quickly and efficiently regardless of whether they are working in an IP, SDI, or hybrid facility. Version 3.3 now supports DCI 4K post production resolutions up to 4096x2160 and refresh rates from 23.98 to 60p for everything from cinematic to broadcast workflows. The latest version also offers Dolby ED2 metadata decoding which is used for Dolby Atmos and guard band measurement for comprehensive audio monitoring.

PRISM is a software-defined instrument family. This unique capability enables users to add new features and capabilities with a simple software upgrade. In general, there is no special hardware needed to enable new features, which allows PRISM units to be easily updated in the field.

Additional new features:

  • AV Delay Measurement for SDI, ST2022-6 and ST2110-20/30/31 using the AV delay test signal from Telestream Sync Pulse Generator products.
  • Safe Area display with AFD graticule allows users to ensure that text, graphics, and important information like weather, headline, and school closure crawls are visible on consumer’s displays irrespective of aspect ratio and production aperture size.
  • Colorized RGB Parade Waveform / Stop display for ease of use and quick operation.
  • Larger floating timecode display allows timecode to be easily visible no matter how the tiles are configured.
