The DVDO AVLab TPG Test Pattern Generator supports full 4K Ultra HD resolution at 50/60 Hz as outlined in version 2.0 of the HDMI specification. Designed specifically for use with Color Management System (CMS) software such as CalMAN, this pocket size test pattern generator is powered by USB and uses the USB interface to automatically control the video calibration workflow. It helps AV professionals to add lab-quality functionality to on-site display setup and calibration.

Full 4K (50/60 Hz) Patterns

The test pattern generator matches test pattern quality to the capability of the 4K Ultra HD panel, which is critical to achieve optimum results. Professional AV installers can use custom 4K test patterns to verify format, sharpness, black levels, and color calibration.

Direct PC Control

Featuring a direct USB connection, the test pattern generator provides power and control for fast verification and calibration of a new panel in CalMAN or other video calibration software packages. It integrates into the workflow to dynamically generate new test patterns based on user and software control, and the included IR remote control allows fast jump-to pattern access for quick setups.

Custom ISF Patterns

A set of black and white PLUGE patterns is built-in for quick visual verification of black and white levels as well as contrast.

Wide Range of Easily Accessible Patterns

The test pattern generator features over 85 built-in test patterns (R, G, B, C, M, Y, K, Scale, Sharp, Focus, Bars, PLUGE, Half, etc.) to cover display setup and visual calibration. USB controlled custom patterns interface through USB with CMS software dynamically generates thousands of patterns. With HDMI/MHL pass-through, the test pattern generator accepts patterns via an MHL-enabled device (Android)


With built-in high quality patterns, installers can connect AVLab TPG to any MHL-enabled devices such as smartphones and tablets to integrate their favorite custom patterns into the workflow for direct high-definition display of custom test patterns. When powered by a 5V (3A) power supply, the AVLab TPG even charges the mobile device while in use.

Other Features

On-screen display for setup and pattern choice, audio stripping to S/PDIF, built-in IR receiver and dongle support, can be powered via USB or external power supply, field upgradeable firmware and patterns.
