Media Solutions Intros MS-TestPro Touchscreen Test Device for HDBaseT Networks

mediasolutions-testpro-0816Media Solutions announced today the availability of the MS-TestPro, the first touchscreen test device for HDBaseT networks. The MS-TestPro provides an elegant, handheld solution for in-field testing of HDBaseT-based systems and cabling. With its built-in monitoring, logging and diagnostics capabilities, installers and integrators have access to quick, efficient analysis and troubleshooting, simplifying audiovisual installations.

The MS-TestPro brings HDBaseT Tx, Rx and PoH (Power over HDBaseT) functionality, providing a highly efficient testing platform for HDBaseT source and sink devices, powered devices and up to 100 meters/328 feet of Cat5e (or higher) cabling.

There are two MS-TestPro testers currently available:

  • Touchscreen Model, with built-in 3.5” touchscreen
  • Mobile App Model, with built-in 3.5” touchscreen also managed via a mobile application

Each MS-TestPro consists of a main unit, Rx module and a Tx module. It emulates an HDBaseT transmitter or receiver device, operating up to pixel rates of 300MHz, enough to test for 4K ultra-high definition source or sink devices. It allows for testing of both source and sinks, even when installed up to 100m/328ft away. The MS-TestPro monitors performance of the installed cable, analyzes features of both source and sink devices, monitors configurations and provides a downloadable detailed diagnostic log, saving time and money and benefiting both installers and end users.

The MS-TestPro is currently available for $1,395. Here are the details.
