New Instrument Provides Four (4) Simultaneous HDMI Outputs
Elgin IL - June 22, 2010 - Quantum Data™, a worldwide provider of video test equipment, today announced the release of the model 804, a new multimedia test instrument for testing HDTVs on a production facility.
The rack mountable 804 is optimized for testing modern HDMI flat panel TVs. It features four (4) HDMI outputs—all active simultaneously—for testing HDTVs with multiple HDMI inputs. This eliminates the need for splitters often required for testing each HDMI input on an HDTV. The 804 can output component analog and composite analog as well. Switching between video timings and images is fast; less than 100ms. The 804 is equipped with all the standard video timings and test patterns—including support for 3D—necessary for testing HDTVs including tests for HDMI protocols such as HDCP, EDID and CEC.
The 804 tests compressed and uncompressed HDMI audio formats using a variety of audio test signals. An HDTV's analog audio inputs can also be tested using the 804's programmable analog audio outputs. Modern HDTVs typically have digital audio outputs on S/PDIF and optical interfaces; these outputs can be tested with the 804 as well (future).
Manufacturing engineers can choose to operate the 804 in a few different ways. The 804 can be controlled through the user friendly touch screen interface which also provides status of the 804 instrument during testing. For control by an automated test system, the 804 can be operated through the 804's extensive command set. The 804 supports the same commands that production facilities have become familiar with on the Quantum Data 802 and 881 series test instruments. Alternatively, an optional programmable keypad can be attached to the USB Port or RS-232 port for keypad control.
The 804 provides the necessary features and functions for testing HDTVs on a production and is offered an attractive price. Contact your Quantum Data distributor or representative for ordering and pricing information.
