Omnitek Launches Ultra TQ
Alan Wheable, FISTC, MITOL - Communications Manager at Omnitek - discusses
the latest developments, and what's on show from the company at NAB 2017...
InB: Can you give us a brief
overview of what we can expect
in the next six to 12 months within
your sector?
Alan Wheable: Omnitek will
continue to roll out new functionality
on its Ultra family of products and
now that it has an established
customer base with 4K/UHD / 12G-SDI
equipment manufacturers and 4K/
UHD/HDR post production houses,
Omnitek's new Ultra TQ will be aimed
squarely at supporting broadcasters.
The NAB software release for the
Ultra family adds full audio and
loudness monitoring, enhanced high
dynamic range analysis and other
functionality. This builds on the recent
V3.2 release which added Omnitek's
O-ZoneTM false colour display for HDR
and SDR material, closed caption /
subtitle display and full timecode
based logging of events.
Further development, later in the
year will enhance the existing Ultra
toolset and add additional functionality
for audio.
InB: Any specific products taking
center stage at the show this year?
AW: At NAB, Omnitek will be
launching the Ultra TQ which is a fully
equipped waveform rasteriser for
the broadcast market. The Ultra TQ
inherits functionality from Omnitek's
highly successful Ultra 4K Tool Box and
the Ultra XR products to provide an
unrivalled comprehensive set of tools
to support broadcasters.
The Ultra TQ supports analysis
and generation of all SD, HD and
3G-SDI formats as standard with an
upgrade path to 4K/UHD if needed,

Ultra TQ is aimed at broadcasters

by customers, in the future. It is
aimed at broadcast production,
engineering, outside broadcast,
operations and control rooms
that require the comprehensive
tool set that is offered as
standard.
The Analyser instruments
within the Ultra TQ include
picture, waveform monitor,
vectorscope, gamut meters,
full audio monitoring and
loudness measurement, video
timing, video and audio status
monitoring,
event
logging,
and closed caption logging as
standard.
The line test pattern generator
provided as standard allows the
generation of 38 line-patterns. This
can be upgraded to a full test
pattern generator with a range
of moving and static zone plates
and test sequences, as well as
the ability to import user-define
test images.
Physical layer analysis and advanced
physical layer analysis are available
as options for use anywhere signal
integrity needs to be checked.
Other options include High Dynamic
Range support and Video / ANC Data
Analysis.
The Ultra TQ user interface can be
displayed on an HDMI or SDI monitor
and remotely via a web browser. This
can display up to nine instruments at
a time or individual instruments at
full size. Global presets allow system
configurations to be stored and
recalled to completely reconfigure
the unit for different program types,
installations and applications.

Launching at NAB 2017
- Omnitek Ultra TQ

InB: What challenges did you face
when designing and launching this
product?
AW: One of the challenges with
launching the Ultra TQ was to find
the right mix of functionality to suit
broadcast
program
production,
post-production and QC activities
in a package to suit current needs
at a price within tight budgetary
constraints. All of this while providing
a future-proof platform that can
be adapted to future needs and
technological trends.
By employing the technology already
in use by the Ultra 4K Tool Box and
the Ultra XR we were quickly able to
build a sophisticated tool set in a small
form factor package suitable
for desktop and rack mount
installation in an engineering
bay, control room, QC suite
and OB truck.
InB: Which territories
do you think will show
particular interest?
AW:
Omnitek
has
established sales of its Ultra
4K Toolbox and Ultra XR
products around the world.
The Ultra 4K Tool Box has
been adopted as the de
facto standard T&M product
for 12G-SDI development in

the USA, Europe and Asia/Pacific. The
Ultra XR has found success in the USA
and in Europe with post houses and
broadcasters already working with 4K/
UHD and / or HD high dynamic range
programs. We are hoping that the new
Ultra TQ will be successful both in the
USA and in Europe with broadcasters
who are not yet ready to move to
new production methods, but want
the reassurance that the equipment
purchased is future-proof.
InB: Any future product/service
innovations ahead that you can
discuss?
AW: Omnitek has a policy of
continual
product
development
and there is a road map to add new
functionality to the Ultra family over
the next few years.
There are two sides to Omnitek's
business, the T&M side and the
IP & Design side. As a business
Omnitek is already working on new
technology that is being driven by
equipment manufacturers needing
solutions for HDMI 2.0, Video-overIP, 8K image processing and high
frame rate processing. These types
of development directly influence
Omnitek's T&M products.
Omnitek's T&M products will be
on display at NAB 2017, Central
Hall, Booth C7915, our IP and Design
Services team will also be available to
discuss any future requirements.
