Tektronix, Inc. Key Developments

Tektronix, Inc. Unveils New Network-Based Lab Instrument Management Solution, TekSmartLab

Tektronix, Inc. has unveiled TekSmartLab, a new network-based lab instrument management solution for setting up and managing basic electronics engineering laboratories at colleges and universities. The new TekSmartLab solution supports managing up to 400 instruments (100 test benches) on a single platform. At many learning institutions, implementing productive and fully integrated instrument networks in classrooms can be a daunting task. For instance, using LAN cables to set up a network is costly, time consuming and limits flexibility. Moreover, many instruments lack LAN ports. Using instruments' existing USB ports and the new Tektronix network adaptor, the instruments on each bench can be connected to the network wirelessly or via Ethernet. TekSmartLab conveniently enables network connectivity on previously unconnected instruments, while giving professors the software tools they need to efficiently manage large, busy classrooms. The TekSmartLab software runs on a standard PC and sets up quickly without requiring any special skills in network administration or special instrument configuration. From a central dashboard, professors can load instrument configurations associated with different course requirements and distribute these to up to 400 instruments with a single mouse click. Educators can also easily check individual instruments' status and measurement contents, for instance, in order to help students on a specific test bench remotely. Instead of using a USB thumb drive to connect to an oscilloscope, students can now retrieve test results wirelessly after scanning a work station specific QR code with their smart phones. TekSmartLab also improves laboratory administration. In conventional teaching labs, lab managers must manually check and record information such as instrument model numbers, serial numbers and workstation location. Detailed information such as an instrument's utilization time can only be estimated by experience or by keeping paper-based usage logs. In contrast, TekSmartLab automatically records and displays this type of asset information, providing administrators with better information for classroom scheduling or making decisions on energy consumption and lab equipment investments. A typical classroom test bench consists of an oscilloscope, a function generator, a digital multi-meter and a power supply. Most Tektronix and Keithley instruments for education applications are supported by TekSmartLab, including the Tektronix TBS1000B-EDU series, DPO/MSO2000B series and MDO3000 series oscilloscopes; AFG1022, AFG2021 and AFG3000C series arbitrary function generators; and Keithley DMM2110 multi-meters and 2231A-30-3 power supplies. In addition, many Tektronix instruments released over the last 5 years, including the TDS1000 series, MSO/DPO2000 series, AFG3000 series, are also supported, and many existing labs can be easily upgraded to TekSmartLab without having to purchase a full set of new instruments.

Tektronix Adds Dual-Input to Sentry Video Monitoring Portfolio

Tektronix, Inc. announced a dual-input capability for its Sentry Video Network Monitoring solution. This provides broadcasters and other service providers the ability to monitor signals coming in and out of facilities in a single unit. The capability will also make it easier for operators to ensure compliance with enhanced FCC closed captioning quality rules that went into effect on March 16, 2015 as well as with other FCC requirements around video quality and audio loudness. Under the new FCC guidelines, broadcasters and cable operators must meet standards for television closed captioning for accuracy, synchronicity, completeness and placement. In addition, the FCC has imposed new requirements around record keeping and handling viewer complaints. With its dual input capability, Sentry gives broadcasters a low-cost, self-contained single-unit solution for monitoring compliance with FCC rules along with an integrated alert system and 60-day history. It can be further combined with a Tektronix MTS4000 MPEG analyzer to diagnose and resolve more serious problems. The dual-input Sentry, including support for ASI, RF, 1 GbE or 10 GbE inputs, is available now worldwide.

Tektronix Collaborates with Sony to Support IP Live Production System

Tektronix, Inc. announced its collaboration with Sony on its video over IP initiative, including support for Sony's IP Live Production system. This system will allow broadcasters to use an IP infrastructure in their facilities for HD and 4K video formats, and support broadcasters through the transition from SDI infrastructure to IP-based infrastructures.
