Rapid testing for the latest HDMI products running at 297MHz
Elgin IL - May 11, 2011 - Quantum Data™, a worldwide provider of video test equipment, today announced the release of the model 804A Video Test Generator running at HDMI 1.4 pixel rates up to 297MHz to support testing HDTVs and other displays with 4K by 2K resolutions at 30Hz.
The rack mountable 804A is optimized for testing the latest displays. It features four (4) HDMI 297MHz 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 804A can output component analog and composite analog as well. Switching between video timings and images is fast; less than 100ms. The 804A 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 804A tests both 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 804A’s programmable analog audio outputs.
Manufacturing engineers can choose to operate the 804A in a few different ways. The 804A can be controlled through the user friendly touch screen interface which also provides status of the 804A instrument during testing. For control by an automated test system, the 804A can be operated through its extensive command set. The 804A supports many of 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.
