Tektronix WVR5200 No SDI Signal
on May 1, 2017 at 8:03:53 am

Hi all,

One of our edit suites is using a Tektronix WVR5200 to view scopes, the signal is being sent via SDI from a BMD Ultrastudio 4K. It has been working without an issue for over a year and now recognises no SDI input when using Avid.
I have no idea what to test other than buying a new SDI cable. Hoping someone has some product knowledge on this that can help.

Thanks

No particular product knowledge with this specific scope, but basic troubleshooting.

You are only trying to use the scopes for HD, not 4k?
Can you run off the loop out on the scope to a monitor. (assuming it has a loop out)
A lot of scopes have A and B inputs, have you tried them both?
How sure are you of the BlackMagic output? Can you run the SDI that is feeding the scope into a monitor instead to verify the signal?

Glenn
