Videotek Debuts the SQM-275 at IBC 2004

Serial Digital Macroblock Detection for their Signal Quality Manager line (August 26, 2004)

Videotek, a division of Leitch Technology Corporation and a leader in innovative test and measurement technology, is pleased to announce the debut of the SQM-275 Serial Digital Macroblock Detection Module for its popular Signal Quality Manager product line.

Utilizing Videotek's unique patented technology, the SQM-275 is designed to monitor serial digital video for the presence of standard-definition macroblocks. Upon detection, the SQM system will automatically send an alarm to an operator as well as log the time and duration of MPEG-2 macroblocks that are caused when video is overly compressed or has a high bit error rate.

For real-time, unattended monitoring, Videotek's Signal Quality Manager (SQM) serves as the eyes and ears of any facility's operations center, continuously monitoring the conditions of all common audio and video formats including analog, digital, MPEG and HD. Developed to detect errors in the signal path and pinpoint the exact location of the error, the SQM system dramatically reduces monitoring costs and provides the opportunity for immediate corrective action. Backed by unsurpassed quality and innovative technology, SQM meets all the industry's requirements for flexibility in system configuration, adaptability and conformity to technological change.

"The addition of the SQM-275 demonstrates that once again, Videotek's innovative technology leads the competition by delivering products specifically demanded by our customers," said Greg Huttie, director of product development at Videotek.
