Standard Features (included with all options)
- Portable form factor. Device is powered via internal batteries or externally via an AC charger.
- Video pattern testing. Test a display’s HDMI and analog component inputs with all the necessary standard timings to ensure that it can render video test patterns including deep color and HDMI 3D patterns. Over 25 video patterns supported. Add custom bitmaps. Create your own custom formats. Scroll bitmap patterns to test for motion artifacts.
- HDMI audio testing. Send audio patterns, tones & noise through HDMI, SPDIF or Optical digital audio outputs including over HDMI 1.4 ARC channel for 780A. Program audio parameters such as sampling rate, bit depth and channels. Use a variety of audio formats including LPCM, Dolby, DTS and high bit rate audio formats such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio.
- HDMI analyzer for sources. Emulate a known-good HDMI sink device to analyze HDMI video and audio content from an HDMI source device with HDCP content protection. View the incoming video images and metadata from an HDMI source device on the LCD display even when content is protected with HDCP.
- Installer Test Utility. Quickly diagnose HDMI interoperability problems through an automated and simplified interface. Run tests upstream toward the source, downstream toward the sink or test both upstream and downstream simultaneously with the «Link» test. The utility also enables you to test on both sides of a repeater.
HDMI Network Analyzer (included on 780c)
- Verify HDCP on repeaters and displays. Send HDCP encrypted video content to a downstream repeater (e.g. AVR) and/or sink (e.g. DTV). Check the authentication response from the sink.
- Check Max HDCP HDMI devices. Check the number of HDCP devices an HDMI source supports during HDCP authentication.
- Verify video timing. Verify the timing of an HDMI source. Compare against a known-good timing.
- Verify video type. Verify the video type of an HDMI source. View AVI infoframe content.
- Identify EDID problems. Run verification tests on the EDID of a sink device such as an HDTV or input of a repeater device. View the entire contents of the EDID of the sink device. Run portions of the EDID compliance test. Compare two EDIDS.
- Verify an HDMI source’s response to an EDID. Emulate the EDID of any HDMI sink device to verify that an HDMI source device responds properly to it. Store and retrieve multiple EDIDs for use in testing.
- Verify audio data. Read the audio infoframes and audio sample packet headers including channel status bits from a connected HDMI source.
- Check for CEC devices. Poll an HDMI installation for CEC devices.
Other Options (Not Included):
HDMI Cable & Link Test Option
- Verify HDMI and HDBaseT (Cat5/6) cables. Run tests on HDMI or HDBaseT cables. Test for pixel errors on multiple formats (resolutions) on the TMDS video and check continuity on the 5 volt, hot plug and DDC lines.
- Prequalify HDMI and HDBaseT networks (prior to installation) with Repeater Test. Verify HDMI networks comprised of cables, audio/video processors, extenders, switches, repeaters, etc. prior to installation. Test for pixel errors on multiple formats (resolutions) on the TMDS video and check continuity on the 5 volt, hot plug and DDC lines.
- Test HDMI/HDBaseT networks (once installed) with Frame Compare test. Verify HDMI/HDBaseT networks comprised of cables, audio/video processors, extenders, switches, repeaters, etc. once installed. Test for pixel errors on the TMDS video.
Auto EDID Test option
- Specify a set of EDIDs for Testing. Specify a set of EDIDs to emulate in the 780C HDMI or HDBaseT input port. These can be commercial EDIDs, EDIDs from Quantum Data EDID Library, custom EDIDs created using Quantum Data EDID Editor utility or known-bad «Test» EDIDs.
- Verify Source Device Handling of EDIDs.Test verifies the incoming video type, timing, colorimetry, samplying and Video Identification Code and flags improper handling.
- Auto EDID Test Report. A text report can be generated to allow sharing the results with colleagues or for later viewing.
HDMI Auxiliary Channel Analyzer (ACA) option
- Monitoring of HDMI/HDBaseT DDC transactions, hot plug events and HDMI CEC messages. Monitor the HDMI/HDBaseT HDCP and EDID transactions on the DDC and hot plug related events while the 780 is emulating a known-good source device, a known-good display device or both. Monitor the HDMI HDCP and EDID transactions on the DDC, monitor hot plug related events and HDMI CEC messages while the 780C is passively monitoring between an HDMI source and sink device.
Custom Bitmap Test Pattern Pack Options
- China Res Test Pattern Package – The ChinaRes test pattern is specified by the National Testing and Inspection Center for Radio and TV Products of China. The image pack includes both a standard definition aspect ratio (shown right) and a high definition aspect ratio. This test pattern is supported at: 1920×1080, 1280×720, 720×576 and 720×480 resolutions.
- THX, LTD. Test Pattern Package – The THX test patterns enable A/V professionals to calibrate the displays on high-end 3D-capable HDTVs to match the same standards as those used in post-production facilities worldwide. Below are some of the THX test patterns included:
3D convergence test patterns to align pixels for proper convergence
3D crosstalk test patterns to determine level of 3D crosstalk
