Media Solutions Debuts an HDBaseT Test Generator

Media Solutions has announced the first handheld HDBaseT tester with a built-in HDMI pattern generator. In addition to monitoring, logging and diagnostics capabilities, the new MS-TestPro tester with built-in HDMI pattern generator says it will simplify the in-field performance analysis process of HDBaseT devices, cabling and overall configurations.

The new built-in HDMI pattern generator in the MS-TestPro supports both CEA and DMT resolutions up to 4K/28Hz, making it compatible with virtually every AV source and display device available. Because it reduces complexity and requires no additional pattern generating equipment, the MS-TestPro provides reliable on-site analysis that saves time and money on every HDBaseT installation.

One click on the 3.5” touchscreen displays basic performance diagnostics for fast analysis of connectivity signals, including go/no-go indication, cable length, pixel clock and Tx/Rx overall performance. More advanced installers and integrators can drill down into the results for detailed analysis on the MS-TestPro screen or on any browser using the optional Wi-Fi interface.

The MS-TestPro also houses a detachable Rx module and 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 devices. It allows for testing of both source and sink devices installed up to 100m/328ft away.

Here are the details.
