All-in-One measurement tool for broadcast and chief engineers

Telestream WFM-2300 is a ruggedized portable test instrument that is ideal for field production setup and troubleshooting.

Telestream WFM-2300 instruments provide a full range of audio, video and ancillary data measurements in order to verify performance or trace problems. It comes with complete set of physical interfaces like SDI, ASI, fibre, and HDMI for video; AES/EBU and embedded for audio.

A high brightness large 7″ screen will allow technician to utilise selection of standard displays (Waveform, Vector, Gamut, Picture) and optional (Eye/Jitter, Audio Loudness, Dolby) on the bench, near the rack or even outdoors thanks to the replaceable battery.

Some of the applications of the Telestream WFM-2300

  • Verify A/V delay
  • Measure Eye & Jitter at The Ins-and-Outs of A Mobile Production Facility
  • A Portable Toolbox for On the Spot Troubleshooting
  • Compare Multiple Cameras with Capture Mode
