The Teledyne LeCroy quantumdata 780AH Handheld Test Instrument for HDMI® is a battery-powered, portable video and audio generator and HDMI analyzer that enables you to conduct quick, on-site verification testing and troubleshooting of your HDMI system and analog video displays. 780AH supports testing of HDMI 2.0 devices up to 300 MHz pixel rate for testing 4K Ultra HDTVs with 4:2:0 pixel encoding on sources and sinks and HDMI 2.0 EDID emulation for testing HDMI 2.0 sources and distribution devices. The 780AH also supports testing of HDCP 2.2 authentication on both HDMI 2.0 sources, sinks and repeaters.

Note: The 780AH has replaced the 780A. The 780AH adds support for testing HDCP 2.2.

The quantumdata 780AH is equipped with both a reference HDMI source and a reference HDMI sink interface allowing you to test audio, video and HDMI protocols—HDCP, EDID, CEC & infoframes—of any type of HDMI device: sources, repeaters and sinks.

You can use the 780AH as pattern generators for calibrating your high definition TVs. The 780AH are equipped with a variety of standard patterns and formats including deep color and HDMI 3D formats for routine video pattern testing and calibration of high definition and ultra high definition displays and TVs.

The 780AH’s portability makes them ideal for your bench and for use in the field. A color touch display makes the 780AH instruments easy and convenient to use and when testing a source device you can view the incoming video image and metadata on the built-in LCD.

Because the 780AH test instrument has both HDMI output and HDMI input ports, you can test your HDMI cables and HDMI network with splitters, extenders and switches even when already installed on site using the Frame Compare feature.

The following is list of some of key the 780AH standard features and benefits. Please refer to the 780AH Data Sheet for a list of all 780AH features and benefits.

Battery powered / small form factor – The small size, battery power and operation through the embedded touch screen make the 780AH convenient to use in all applications, in the field, on your test bench or in the R&D lab.

HDMI Out (Tx) port – Supports the emulation a known-good HDMI source device up to 300 MHz to test HDMI sinks and downstream HDMI networks including HDMI 2.0 sinks with 4:2:0 pixel encoding.

HDMI protocol Tests - Verify EDIDs and HDCP authentication (1.4 or 2.2) on HDMI sources, sinks or repeaters. View incoming HDMI infoframes from source devices.

Extensive format and test pattern library – Enables you to test a variety of video test cases on a high end HDTV including deep color and 3D.

Audio test tones and clips for uncompressed LPCM and compressed formats – Enables you to verify that an HDMI audio rendering device supports various audio formats including LPCM and Dolby and DTS compressed formats including Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio.

HDMI In (Rx) port – Supports the emulation a known-good HDMI sink device to test HDMI sources and upstream HDMI networks including HDMI 2.0 sinks with 4:2:0 pixel encoding.

Installer tests Enable you to quickly diagnose HDMI interoperability problems through an automated and simplified interface. Run tests upstream toward the source, downstream toward the sink or test both upstream and downstream simultaneously with the “Link” test. The utility also enables you to test on both sides of a repeater.

NEW! Report File Creation. Enables residential installers, proAV integrators and test engineers in R&D to produce a record of the tests they perform.  Reports can be run on HDCP, Format Analyzer, Audio Analyzer, Cable tests, auxiliary channel analyzer tests for any interface type. The reports can be provided to customers, colleagues or to the contracting agent to verify and demonstrate project completion. The reports can be run on a single test or aggregated for a series of tests. The reports can be transferred by SD card or the USB interface and viewed in a standard browser or any text editor.

Network Analyzer – Enables you to run diagnostic tests to verify proper timing, infoframes metadata, HDCP authentication, EDID structure and content and CEC messages on HDMI sources, sinks and entire HDMI distribution networks.

HDMI Cable and Link Test – Enables you to run functional tests on HDMI cables and HDMI distribution devices and networks.

Auxiliary Channel Analyzer (ACA) – Monitoring when emulating HDMI source or sink – Monitor the HDCP and EDID transactions on the DDC and also monitor hot plug related events while the 780AH is emulating a known-good source device, a known-good display device or both.

Auxiliary Channel Analyzer (ACA) – Passive Monitoring – Monitor the HDCP and EDID transactions on the DDC and also monitor hot plug related events while the 780AH is passively monitoring and HDMI system comprised of multiple devices. Requires an additional hardware module with four (4) additional HDMI ports.

THX Test Pattern Pack – The THX test patterns enable A/V professionals to calibrate the displays on high-end 3D-capable HDTVs to match the same standards as those used in post-production facilities worldwide.

Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) Test Pattern Pack – The ISF test patterns enable A/V professionals to calibrate the displays on modern high-end HDTVs.

China Res Test Pattern Package – The ChinaRes test pattern is specified by the National Testing and Inspection Center for Radio and TV Products of China. The image pack includes both a standard definition aspect ratio (shown right) and a high definition aspect ratio. This test pattern is supported at: 1920×1080, 1280×720, 720×576 and 720×480 resolutions.
