Ultra 4K Tool Box

SD/HD/3G/6G/12G-SDI UHD Analyzer, Generator, Converter

The Omnitek Ultra 4K Tool Box provides conversion, generation and analysis of TV and Digital Cinema signals in all current and anticipated video formats up to 4096 x 2160/60, allowing manufacturers, designers, researchers, broadcasters and systems integrators to build, test and commission 4K products and systems with complete confidence. There are also applications for the Ultra 4K Tool Box in Outside Broadcast vans and networks.

Conversion between connection and image formats allows operation in multi-format video environments, while advanced SDI eye and jitter analysis features will enable system designers to rapidly locate sources of signal error in all signal paths up to 4K/60 on 12G-SDI single link. To complete its comprehensive solution, the Ultra 4K Tool Box offers of a variety of connection formats – multi-rate SDI, HDMI and DisplayPort - for both video source and display.

GENERATE, CONVERT and ANALYSE options are included as standard, along with support of all standards up to 6G-SDI. Physical Layer Analysis and support for 12G-SDI available as optional extras.
