The 780 series Handheld Test Instruments for HDMI® are battery-powered, portable video and audio generators and HDMI analyzers that enables you to conduct quick, on-site verification testing and troubleshooting of your HDMI system and analog video displays. The 780 and 780A are 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.
There are two 780 series models available: 1) The 780 supports HDMI testing at pixel rates up to 165MHz and TMDS rates up to 225MHz for deep color on the output and pixel rates up to 150MHz on the HDMI input. 2) NEW! The 780A supports HDMI testing at pixel rates and TMDS rates up to 297MHz for testing 4K capable HDMI source, sinks, repeaters and distribution devices.
You can use the 780/780A as a test pattern generator for calibrating your high definition TVs. The 780 is equippped with a variety of standard patterns and formats including deep color and HDMI 3D formats.
Because the 780/780A have both an HDMI output and an HDMI input, you can test your HDMI cables and systems with splitters, extenders and switches even when already installed on site using the Frame Compare feature.
The 780/780A can also be equipped with the optional Auxiliary Channel Analyzer utility for monitoring the DDC (HDCP and EDID) transactions and hot plug events using the 780/780A's feature. There are two options, one for monitoring while emulating an HDMI source and/or sink and a second option for monitoring passively an HDMI network comprised of an HDMI source, repeater and sink.
The 780/780A's portability makes them ideal for your bench and for use in the field. A color touch display makes the 780/780A 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.
