To answer the demands for a cost effective HD-SDI pattern generator Maxtron introduces the TG-5000 test pattern generator. The TG-5000 is a very low-cost HD-SDI generator which supports both the 720p and1080i HD formats 59.94Hz frame rates. These two formats are the only formats used by broadcast facilities in the US and Canada.

The TG-5000 provides the latest SMPTE recommended HD test pattern - the RP 219-2002 HD color bar signal. The pattern is native 16:9 aspect and consists of both 75% and 100% color bars, a white strip, and a linear ramp. The output conforms to SMPTE 292M at a signal level of 800mv into 75 ohms.

Mechanically the TG-5000 is very sturdily built and comes in a conveniently small package. It won't roll off the bench or hide under a monitor. The package size is 4 x 2.5 x 1.25 inches.

      Comments about MAXTRON PRODUCTS Maxtron TG-5000 Dual-Format HD-SDI Pattern Generator:

      I have used the Maxtron to check monitor feeds, cable identification, and to feed HD SDI bars/tone to our ENG truck inputs for testing. The first few minutes out of the box and I was feeding an HD test signal into a CATV QAM modulator for troubleshooting. To add to the versatility of the unit, consider ordering the TG-5000AB. This will give you verbal audio identifiers, and this model (AB) is powered by the on-board battery. The unit has two controls: power and format. The 720P setting gives you a circle overlay for aspect ratio checks. Very lightweight, this little generator is great for shop and field work.

          The battery last a good long time. It is very small and portable.

          Only Con I can think of: The bar chart is low color depth, but good enough.
