Quantumdata 00-00226 overview

  • 1Description

The 780 Handheld Test Instrument from Quantum is a portable multimedia generator and analyzer that enables you to conduct quick verification tests of all your HDMI products – source, sinks, repeaters, distribution devices – on-site or in an R&D environment. The instrument's color touch display makes it easy and convenient to use it. The 780 test instrument supports pixel rates up to 165 MHz and TMDS clock rates up to 225 MHz for deep color on the HDMI Tx port and up to 150 MHz on the HDMI Rx port.

Testing HDMI Sink Devices

The 780 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, and HDCP and CEC messaging on HDMI sink devices.

Analyzing HDMI Source Devices

The 780 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 info-frames, and channel status blocks.

Testing HDMI Cables & Distribution Networks

Because the 780 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 prequalify cables and distribution systems prior to installation or once they are installed with the frame compare (pixel error) test feature.

Monitoring HDMI Protocols

With the auxiliary channel analyzer (ACA) options, you can monitor the HDMI hot plug related events and DDC transactions, EDID, and HDCP, between HDMI devices and the 780 while the 780 is emulating a known-good HDMI source or sink device. The second ACA option enables you to passively monitor the HDMI hot plug-related events and DDC transactions on three HDMI connected devices.
