The Teledyne LeCroy rack mountable model 804, 804A and 804B Video Generators are optimized for testing modern HDMI flat panel TVs. The 804 video test generator supports testing of HDMI resolutions operating up to 225 MHz. The 804A Video Generator supports testing of HDMI 4K x 2K resolutions up to pixel rates of 300 MHz. The 804B video test generator supports testing of HDMI 4K x 2K resolutions up to pixel rates of 600 MHz.
Please check out the 804 series Product Selection Guide to get a general understanding of the feature differences between the three (3) models.
The following is a high level view of the comparative features and attributes of the 804 series instruments. Please refer to the data sheets for each device for more detailed information on each module.
The 804 series instruments feature 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 instruments can output component analog and composite analog video as well as HDMI. Switching between video timings and images is fast. The 804 instruments are 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 instruments test 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.
Manufacturing engineers can choose to operate the 804 series instruments in a few different ways. The instrument can be controlled through the user friendly touch screen interface which also provides status during testing. For control by an automated test system, the 804 and 804A can be operated through an extensive command set. The 804 series instruments support the same commands that production facilities have become familiar with on The Teledyne LeCroy quantumdata 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 instruments provide the necessary features and functions for testing HDTVs on a production and are offered an attractive price. Contact your Quantum Data distributor or representative for ordering and pricing information.
The 804 series products are rack-mount or desktop video generators primarily intended for testing HDTVs in manufacturing but also very popular with R&D. They provide basic functional and interoperability testing for HDMI, DVI (single link) and analog RGB and component. They can be operated either through the embedded touch screen display or through the command line via USB or RS-232. There are three (3) 804 instruments to choose from. Please refer to the 804 series Product Selection Guide for a summary of the features and functions of each 804 test instrument.
