WFM5200 Multi-format, multi-standard portable Waveform Monitor

The WFM5200 waveform monitor offers uncompromised monitoring quality with sharp CRT-like traces, SD/HD monitoring, a range of software options, and an upgrade path to 3G-SDI.

This portable video waveform monitor weighs less than 3 kg. and provides an ideal solution for basic video and audio monitoring needs in a convenient 3RU half-rack short depth form factor, suitable for space-constrained environments. The WFM5200 supports options to accept power from a 12 VDC source, a battery or a 100-240 VAC converter, and shares the same accessories with the WFM4000 and 5000 models.
