SIX-A + SIX-G = The Perfect Combination!
In development for over a year, the Murideo engineering team has delivered an extremely useful and cost effective field test tool for systems integrators - the Murideo Fresco SIX-A. In today's world of mixed systems and multiple flavors of SD, HD and UHD this tool solves problems. We use the SIX-A in our shop for testing what the manufacturer says a device will do vs. what it will actually do. We use the SIX-A for testing basic and complex switching solutions for maximum capability and performance; including complete high bandwidth HDMI cable testing, HDBaseT and HDIP link testing up to 18 GBPS (that means 8K SUHD, all HDR flavors, plus legacy sources like 480i/p). Plus, we can even use the SIX-A to monitor a pesky system with intermittent issues and capture the data required to fix the system. Consultants will love the SIX-A as a tool for system commissioning and validation - with included PC software for advanced analysis and reporting.
Murideo also offers a top notch reference 4K 18 GBPS (4K60 4:4:4) DPL Labs approved test generator, the Murideo Fresco SIX-G. The 6G has been in the field for almost a year and 1000's of folks are using them on a regular basis. Many are using the 6G for advanced video calibration and panel matching or as a tool for signal injection troubleshooting, or both.
You can inject reference signals into any HDMI receiver with the SIX-G then analyze the same signal at every HDMI transmitter in the system. It's really that simple. And it's best to test a system that is working, to get the hang of how things should work first. Now, with the touch of a few buttons you can turn HDCP 2.2 or 1.4 on or off, change formats, color space and bit depth, toggle HDR or inject a native 4K test pattern with the SIX-G and see what the system spits out at the other end with the 6A. In no time you can test every HDMI cable, balun, switcher, encoder or decoder in the system and identify any failure or low performing point in the system.
When you pair the 6A with the 6G you now have a complete end-to-end troubleshooting system, and bundled together, well this becomes a package you simply cannot ignore!
