Small, Powerful Signal Generator for HDMI with 3DTV and KSV Testing
Gefen's next-generation Mini Pattern Signal Generator for HDMI and 3DTV is designed for easy mobility when installing, designing, or troubleshooting audio/video systems in the field. Real-time testing capability for multiple displays and projectors, support for 3DTV and its compact size make this signal generator a valuable tool for integrators.
The GefenTV HD Mini Pattern Signal Generator supplies 25 timings, 6 patterns, and an additional 3D testing pattern for calibrating and testing video performance. The 3DTV test pattern supports side-by-side, top-and-bottom, and frame-packing 3D formats up to [email protected] It supports HD resolutions up to 1080p Full HD and VESA resolutions up to 1920 x 1200. The built-in audio signal generator provides up to seven channels of LPCM audio.
The Audio Return Channel (ARC) can be tested via the TOSLINK digital audio output. Other features include: 12-bit Deep Color, HDCP and EDID analysis, making this device very useful for installers and integrators. This new Signal Generator can also analyze the audio/video signal on the input and display the exact video timing and audio specifications on-screen.
Advanced features include a KSV count for the connected source- the HD Mini Pattern Signal Generator for HDMI and 3DTV will identify the maximum number of KSV keys the source can handle. This is extremely valuable when distributing an HDCP-compliant source to multiple displays.
This model also allows you to store a display's EDID information and take it to the field. If you experience issues with signal loss when testing displays in the field, you can use either display's EDID or the previously installed EDID to overcome the issue.
The easy-to-read OLED display, along with an external On-Screen Display (OSD) menu, guides users through all settings for easy operation. Its ease of use enables a professional on-site evaluation and calibration of HDTV systems, immediately locating where problems lie so they may be quickly solved.
How It Works
Connect an HDMI cable from the HD Mini Pattern Signal Generator to the output device (e.g. display).
If testing ARC (Audio Return Channel), connect an optical cable from the output of the signal generator to the optical input of an audio amplifier.
For pass-through signal analysis, from the source to the output device, connect an HDMI cable from the source to the HDMI input on the Analyzer. Connect the 5V DC power supply to the Analyzer.
