Product Information

The Magni AVM-510A is the latest addition to Magni's multi-standard video signal monitor product line. The AVM-510A Automated Video Monitor is a rasterizing waveform monitor and vectorscope with 4-channel audio level metering, and automated measurement screens that provide numerical values for all important video parameters. These values can be used to generate alarms and reports on out of limit signal conditions. The AVM-510A serves as the platform for a wide range of analog and digital monitoring solutions and includes versions tailored to transmitter measurements (AVM-510A-T), and component measurements (AVM-510A-C). The AVM-510A addresses major television formats such as NTSC, PAL, S-Video, and Component (EBU, Beta, M-II, GBR). Its display outputs are provided in standard Composite and S-video, and in TIFF format through the RS-232 port.

The Magni AVM-510A-C adds component measurement sets to the standard AVM-501A Automated Video Monitors. It is a full-featured rasterizing waveform monitors and vectorscopes with comprehensive measurement and error reporting capabilities. Magni?s patented raster display technology provides bright and sharp waveform and vector displays that resemble familiar CRT displays. All displays are routable so they can be viewed anywhere in a facility and on existing picture monitors. The AVM-510A-C monitors is dual standard (NTSC and PAL) and multi-format (Beta, MII, S-Video, EBU and GBR). It also saves space by occupying only a single rack unit (1 RU). The AVM-510A-C is an active monitoring system with reporting, alarming, and numerical readouts on ?Program Video? parameters. Automated Measurement sets provide graphic displays and numeric readouts on program video and standard broadcast Vertical Interval Test Signals (VITS) for simplified QC and testing. In any ?Out of Limit? condition, the system highlights the pertinent parameter in red, activates a ground closure, and generates a report to a personal computer or printer with time code (VITC) or real time/date stamp. The AVM-510A-C is ideally suited for site monitoring and remote control from a personal computer, or any other control system providing an RS-232 interface, over a Local Area Network (LAN) or Wide Area Network (WAN). Magni?s Windows based LOGBOOK II software provides full front panel control and easy viewing of bit maps of VITS, waveform/vector displays and measurement screens. For those facilities in transition to Serial Digital 601, Magni also offers the SDM-560 Series, an innovative solution that builds on the AVM-510A analog platform. The SDM-560 provides Serial Digital and Composite inputs in a single unit with the features of the AVM-510A-C and new digital processing technologies. The specification s of AVM-510A-C is the same as the AVM-510A standard unit with the addition of: ? Component measurement screen with ? Component signal parameters: ? Sync amplitude (loss of video) ? Peak video amplitude ? H-reference timing
