Tektronix' solutions monitor commercials as they run, enabling video service providers to identify overly loud commercials, so that they can then be re-encoded at a lower volume. Once re-encoded, the commercials can be checked again for compliance before running.

The company's line of loudness detection and monitoring solutions currently includes the WFM6000/7000, WFM8000, WVR6000/7000, and WVR8000 Series waveform monitors and rasterizers; the Sentry digital content monitor; Cerify content verification software; and VQS1000 Video and Audio QoE software.
