TG-5100B - Overview

A Superior HD Signal Generator with Embedded Audio at Half the Price! This version features a factory installed Internal Li-ion Battery Pack.

Don't let the size of the TG-5100 fool you, this is a full featured, multi-pattern, multi-format, SMPTE 292M HD-SDI generator with individual 16-channel voice ID's. The embedded audio repeats the channel ID every15 seconds, leaving no doubts or confusion about the audio channel you're monitoring. Plus, between the voice ID's there is standard level 1kHz audio for the "right" and 440Hz for the "left", permitting accurate system leveling. In addition, both the US -20dBFS and European -18dBFS levels are supported.

The pattern lineup was specifically chosen to expose system weakness and limitations. For example, a moving zoneplate is used to qualify video compression and scaling. The pathological pattern is used to stress the PLL's in the signal path. There is even the traveling wizard that moves smoothly about the screen to reveal dropped or repeated frames. Then there are the classic patterns: the color bars, SMPTE RP 219 and full-field; the projector alignment and convergence grid; and the flat color fields and black. And, on top of most can be placed a thin circle to check for proper display aspect.

Physically, the TG-5100 is no toy either. It won't roll off the bench or hide under a monitor. It is mechanically sturdy in a convenient package. Patterns and formats are changed using push-wheels that always indicate the exact status of the generator, and they are not prone to being accidently changed.
