The new instruments are an integral part of the transition to digital video underway in India.

Commenting on the deployment of Tektronix solutions, Dinesh Singh, head – Broadcast & Technology Operations, NDTV Group, said, "We found the rare combination of 'highest precision' and 'easiest to use' in the Tektronix instruments and software deployed at NDTV. The patented Diamond Display feature on the WFM6120 Waveform Monitors simplifies complex monitoring issues in the video testing process and the acclaimed Stay GenLock feature in the SPG600 help to ensure the highest quality of service for our customers."

According to Suraj Pal, vice president for technology, BAG Films & Media Ltd., "We have chosen Tektronix video test and monitoring tools to attain assured quality in our video transmission and production. We have file based workflow and need to keep Video signals within Legal PAL colour limits both immediately before acquisition and after final playout. We are extensively using the Diamond Display in our Production Control chain to effectively keep Video signals best suited to the DVB chain. The end result is impressive."

Shrinath Kulkarni, sales director, Tektronix India, said," The choosing of Tektronix by NDTV and BAG Films points to the growing importance of digital video technologies and the value provided by Tektronix See and Solve features such as the Diamond and Split Diamond displays which were designed specifically to simplify the process of ensuring Gamut compliance.
