Please check out the 804 Series Product Selection Guide
to get a general understanding of the feature differences between the 3 models.
VIDEO PATTERN TESTING
The 804B video generator is equipped with all the standard video timings
and test patterns—including support for 3D—necessary for testing HDTVs.
The 804B instrument supports functional protocol tests such as EDID and
HDCP. You can verify the EDID of HDMI sinks including new data elements
related to HDMI 2.0. Both HDCP 1.4 and HDCP 2.2 verification tests are
supported as well.
The instrument features four (4) HDMI outputs—all active
simultaneously—for testing HDTVs with multiple HDMI inputs. This
eliminates the need for splitters often required for testing each HDMI
input on an HDTV. The 804B video generator can output component analog
and composite analog video as well as HDMI. Component (RGB) output
through the VGA interface operates up to 162MHz; component YPbPr output
through the BNC connectors operates up to 75MHz.
The 804B video generator tests compressed and uncompressed HDMI audio
formats using a variety of audio test signals. An HDTV's analog audio
inputs can also be tested using the 804B's programmable analog audio
Manufacturing engineers can choose to operate the 804B instrument in a
few different ways. The instrument can be controlled through the user
friendly touch screen interface which also provides status during
testing. For control by an automated test system, the 804B can be
operated through an extensive command set. The 804B instrument supports
the same commands that production facilities have become familiar with
on the other 804 series instruments as well as the early Quantum Data
families of video test generators such as the 802 and 881 series
instruments. Alternatively, an optional programmable keypad can be
attached to the USB Port or RS-232 port for keypad control.
The 804B video generator provides the necessary features and
functions for testing HDTVs on a production and are offered an
attractive price. Contact your Quantum Data distributor or
representative for ordering and pricing information.
