QD780C (4K, SDI, HDbaseT)
The Quantum Data 780C Multi-Interface Interoperability Tester is a handheld digital video generator and analyzer that enables you to run tests on various digital video devices and network distribution devices on-site or in the R&D lab. The 780C instrument provides a 7-inch color touch screen for operation and viewing the status of outgoing and incoming video and audio. The 780C has multiple interface types, including HDMI, HDBaseT, 3G-SDI, and component analog. Testing digital interfaces is supported by both an output port and an input port to allow testing of digital video sources, displays, audio devices, and distribution devices. Testing hybrid converter devices supporting 3G-SDI, HDMI, and HDBaseT distribution networks is also a crucial application of the 780C.
- HDMI Tx and Rx ports. The 780C can emulate an HDMI source or an HDMI sink operating up to pixel rates of 300MHz. This supports testing 4K ultra high definition sources and sinks operating at 50/60Hz using HDMI 2.0 4:2:0 pixel encoding.
- HDBaseT Tx and Rx ports. The 780C can emulate an HDBaseT source or sink operating up to pixel rates of 300MHz. This supports testing 4K ultra high definition sources and sinks operating at 50/60Hz using HDMI 2.0 4:2:0 pixel encoding. The HDBaseT interfaces are invaluable for testing A/V distribution gear with HDBaseT and HDMI interfaces.
- 3G-SDI Tx and Rx ports. The 780C can emulate a 3G-SDI source or sink operating up to data rates of 2.97bps. This supports testing 3G-SDI sources and sinks and hybrid conversion SDI conversion devices. The 3G-SDI interfaces are invaluable for testing incoming 3G-SDI video streams and 3G-SDI monitors.
- Analog Component video. Send video patterns to test RGB and component YPbPr on the computer and other video displays. Use a variety of test patterns and CEA and VESA timings.
You can use the 780C as a pattern generator for calibrating high-definition TVs. The 780Cs are equipped with various standard patterns and formats, including deep color and HDMI 3D formats.
Because the 780C instrument has both HDMI/HDBaseT output and HDMI/HDBaseT input ports, you can test your HDMI/HDBaseT cables and systems with splitters, extenders, and switches even when already installed on-site using the Frame Compare feature.
The 780C can also be equipped with the optional Auxiliary Channel Analyzer (ACA) utility for monitoring the HDMI or HDBaseT DDC (HDCP and EDID) transactions and hot plug events. The ACA option enables you to monitor the DDC while emulating an HDMI or HDBaseT source and/or sink or passively monitor the HDMI DDC, hot plug events, and CEC messages between an HDMI source and sink.
The 780Cs' portability makes them ideal for your bench and for use in the field. A color touch display makes the 780C easy and convenient to use, and when testing a source device, you can view the incoming video image and metadata on the built-in LCD.
