Compact A/V Test Set

March 14, 2018
Saelig Company offers a video generator and analyzer that can quickly identify likely causes of problematic and expensive failure conditions.

The Teledyne LeCroy quantumdata 280 HDMI/HDBaseT Video Generator (Tx) and Analyzer (Rx) is a compact, battery powered test set ideally suited for professional A/V integrators and home theatre installers. This test set assists with fundamental verification and diagnostic tests on HDMI/HDBaseT cables, video distribution networks, and individual A/V components. The HDMI input and output ports support testing at data rates of up to 18Gbps and pixel rates of up to 600MHz. The HDBaseT input and output ports support testing at pixel rates up to 300MHz.


The Teledyne LeCroy 280 Test Set can quickly verify hot plug, +5V, EDID, HDCP, and video transmissions through a video distribution network, check interoperability between video sources, displays and distribution equipment, and diagnose video and protocol failures in cables, video distribution devices and components with a simple Pass/Fail indication on its LCD display.


Installing video equipment and distribution networks is a complex task. This is especially true for the newest 18Gbps network installations. The quantumdata 280 Test Set can quickly identify likely causes of problematic and expensive failure conditions such as no video, degraded video, flashing video, unexpected video or audio and other performance issues. Audio/video professionals will appreciate this affordable solution that helps bring quick resolution to these problems.


Whether verifying an HDMI cable or a re-terminated HDBaseT cable run, checking an HDBaseT extender, testing the EDID handling of an HDMI switch, checking HDCP content protection protocols or just verifying a video distribution network end-to-end, this compact, affordable 280 Test Set will save installation time on site, reduce callbacks, and provide technicians with the assurance that the video distribution network just installed will run problem free.
