The 780A HDMI 2.0 Handheld Test Instrument from Quantum Data is a portable multimedia generator and analyzer that enables you to conduct quick verification tests of your HDMI products-source, sinks, repeaters, distribution devices-on-site or in an R&D lab. The instrument's color touch display makes it easy and convenient to use. This unit features a 300M Hz HDMI Tx port, and a 300 MHz HDMI Rx port. It allows you to test 4K Ultra HD HDMI 2.0 devices at 50/60 Hz with 4:2:0 pixel encoding and EDID feature enhancements. You can view full scaled captured video frames by panning. The headphone jack monitors the incoming LPCM audio, and the RS-232 port commands line control. You can emulate HDMI 1.4 ARC Tx to test ARC Rx on an A/V receiver.

The 780A is equipped with an HDMI output port for testing HDMI sink devices. You can test and calibrate the video on your high definition TVs with a variety of resolutions and standard 2D or 3D test patterns as well as custom patterns from THX and ISF. You can also verify hot plug, EDID, HDCP, and CEC messaging on HDMI sink devices. The 780A is also equipped with an HDMI input port for verifying HDMI source devices. The HDMI input port and built-in display enable you to verify the incoming video parameters and view the entire, unscaled video image including 4K images by panning, even when encrypted with HDCP. You can also verify the incoming audio by examining the decoded IEC audio headers, audio infoframes and channel status blocks. Because the 780A has both an HDMI output and an HDMI input, you can test your HDMI cables and distribution systems (splitters, extenders and switches) with the Cable Test feature. You can pre-qualify cables and distribution systems prior to installation or once they are installed with the Frame Compare (Pixel Error) test feature.
