Introducing the 804A Video Test Generator supporting HDMI 297MHz capability for testing HDTVs with 4K x 2K resolutions. The rack mountable 804A is optimized for testing modern HDMI flat panel TVs on a production line. It features 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 804A can also output component analog and composite analog for testing an HDTVs analog video outputs. The 804A is equipped with all the standard video timings up to 297 MHz and test patterns including 3D patterns and tests for HDMI protocols such as HDCP, EDID and CEC.
The 804A tests 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 804A’s programmable analog audio outputs.
