Omnitek is both a leading manufacturer of broadcast test and measurement equipment, and a major provider of design and consultancy services to broadcast, professional A/V, and image processing companies. Over the past 15 years our customers have included Altera, AMD, Avid, ARRI, Barco, Calrec, Cisco, Dolby, Ericsson, Harmonic, Harris, IntoPIX, Microsoft, Pandora, Riedel, Snell, Sony, Tandberg, Texas Instruments, Vicon and Xilinx, among many others.

The engineering team at Omnitek has an international reputation for excellence. The company’s first products were born out of frustration at the lack of good test and measurement equipment for use in multi-format video environments. Over the years it has worked closely with our customers in post production, broadcast and design to offer a suite of products for waveform and data monitoring, physical layer analysis and picture quality assessment.

Omnitek has IP available for the following technologies:

  • Video Display Processing

4K/UHD Analyzer/Generator/Converter

The Omnitek Ultra 4K Tool Box provides conversion, generation and analysis of TV and Digital Cinema signals in all current and anticipated video formats up to 4096 x 2160/60, allowing manufacturers, designers, researchers, broadcasters and systems integrators to build, test and commission 4K products and systems with complete confidence. There are also applications for the Ultra 4K Tool Box in Outside Broadcast vans and networks.

Conversion between connection and image formats allows operation in multi-format video environments, while advanced SDI eye and jitter analysis features will enable system designers to rapidly locate sources of signal error in all signal paths up to 4K/60 on 12G-SDI single link. To complete its comprehensive solution, the Ultra 4K Tool Box offers of a variety of connection formats – multi-rate SDI, HDMI and DisplayPort – for both video source and display.

GENERATE, CONVERT and ANALYSE options are included as standard, along with support of all standards up to 6G-SDI. Physical Layer Analysis and support for 12G-SDI available as optional extras.
