Test HDMI, HDBaseT and 3G-SDI sources and displays all in the same test instrument.
The Quantum Data 780C Multi-Interface Interoperability Tester is a portable digital video generator and analyzer that enables you to run tests on various digital video devices and network distribution devices on site or in the R&D lab. The 780C instrument provides a 7 inch color touch screen for operation and for viewing status of outgoing and incoming video and audio. The 780C is equipped with multiple interface types including HDMI, HDBaseT, 3G-SDI and component analog. Testing digital interfaces is supported by both an output port and an input port to allow testing of digital video sources, displays, audio devices and distribution devices. Testing hybrid converter devices supporting 3G-SDI, HDMI, HDBaseT distribution networks is a key application of the 780C as well.
HDMI Tx and Rx ports. The 780C can emulate an HDMI source or and HDMI sink operating up to pixel rates of 300MHz. This supports testing of 4K ultra high definition sources and sinks operating at 50/60Hz using HDMI 2.0 4:2:0 pixel encoding.
HDBaseT Tx and Rx ports. The 780C can emulate an HDBaseT source or sink operating up to pixel rates of 300MHz. This supports testing of 4K ultra high definition sources and sinks operating at 50/60Hz using HDMI 2.0 4:2:0 pixel encoding. The HDBaseT interfaces or invaluable for testing A/V distribution gear with HDBaseT and HDMI interfaces.
3G-SDI Tx and Rx ports. The 780C can emulate an 3G-SDI source or sink operating up to data rates of 2.97bps. This supports testing of 3G-SDI sources and sinks as well as hybrid conversion SDI conversion devices. The 3G-SDI interfaces are invaluable for testing incoming 3G-SDI video streams and for testing 3G-SDI monitors.
Analog Component video. Send video patterns to test RGB and component YPbPr on computer and other video displays. Use a variety of test patterns and CEA and VESA timings.
You can use the 780C as a pattern generator for calibrating your high definition TVs. The 780Cs are equipped with a variety of standard patterns and formats including deep color and HDMI 3D formats.
Because the 780C instrument has both HDMI/HDBaseT output and HDMI/HDBaseT input ports, you can test your HDMI/HDBaseT cables and systems with splitters, extenders and switches even when already installed on site using the Frame Compare feature.
The 780C can also be equipped with the optional Auxiliary Channel Analyzer (ACA) utility for monitoring the DDC (HDCP and EDID) transactions and hot plug events. There are two ACA 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 passive monitoring option requires an extra hardware board with 4 HDMI ports.
The 780Cs' portability makes them ideal for your bench and for use in the field. A color touch display makes the 780C 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.
