Initial release supports source testing
Elgin IL - May 14, 2013 - Quantum Data™, a worldwide provider of video test equipment, today announced that the 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer test instrument supports HDMI-HDCP compliance testing for source devices per CTS 1.2. Quantum Data's support for HDCP compliance testing on the 980 Protocol Analyzer is a significant expansion to the existing support for the protocol, video, audio, and advanced features compliance test sections of the HDMI (and MHL) CTS for both source and sink devices. Note that the new HDCP compliance test option requires a memory upgrade to the protocol analyzer module.
Quantum Data was the first test equipment vendor to provide a commercially available HDCP test tool for the HDMI™ interface approved by Digital Content Protection (DCP), LLC. This initial support was provided with the 882E Analyzer test instrument.
Operation of the HDCP compliance test through the 980 Manager application is simple. The HDCP compliance test is initiated through the 980 Manager either through the 980 touch screen or from a host PC. Once initiated, the tests run to completion with limited user interaction required. When a test series has been completed, the instrument issues a detailed report that provides pass/fail results for each individual test. Reports can be viewed through a web browser, transferred over a network or printed.
In addition to the HDCP compliance test, the 980 HDMI Protocol Analyzer offers a rich debug environment that helps identify and resolve HDCP compliance related problems during development. Developers can monitor HDCP transactions and examine the encryption pulse occurrences within the HDMI stream to help identify the root cause of a compliance test failure. All raw capture data used for diagnosing HDCP compliance failures as well as the HDCP test results can be transferred to the host PC and disseminated to colleagues or Quantum Data application engineers for additional analysis.
Orders for the HDMI-HDCP compliance tool are being taken now. Contact your Quantum Data distributor or representative for ordering and pricing information as well as for procedures to upgrade the Protocol Analyzer instrument with the necessary additional memory.
