Gefen Mini Signal Generator for On-The-Go Trouble Shooting

Gefen Unveils Portable HDMI Signal Generator Upgraded for 3DTV with High Quality Audio Testing

Gefen’s next generation Mini Pattern Signal Generator for HDMI 3DTV is designed for easy mobility when installing, designing or trouble shooting audio/video systems in the field. Real-time testing of multiple displays and projectors, support for 3DTV, advanced features and the small, lightweight enclosure all make this Signal Generator a valuable tool for integrators.

The Gefen ToolBox Mini Pattern Signal Generator for HDMI 3DTV supplies several test patterns for calibrating and testing video performance. New video testing patterns are provided including 19 HDTV and VESA standard timings. The 3DTV test pattern supports side-by-side, top-bottom, and frame packing 3D formats up to 1080p @ 24Hz. It supports the connection of digital optical audio, used to test support for the HDMI 1.4 feature of audio return channel. This is to determine if the connected display properly returns audio over the same HDMI cable. This new Signal Generator can also analyze the audio/video signal on the input and display the exact video timing and audio specification.

Advanced features include a KSV count for connected sources. The Mini Signal Generator for HDMI 3DTV will identify the maximum KSV keys for each source. This is extremely valuable when distributing a source to multiple displays with HDCP-compliance as you can see if the system will support additional KSVs.

The Mini Pattern Signal Generator for HDMI 3DTV also allows you to store various displays’ EDID information through the local input and take it to the field. If you experience issues with signal loss when testing displays in the field, you can store that display’s EDID or use a previously installed EDID to overcome the issue.

The on-screen display menu, accessed through navigation touch capacitive buttons on top of the unit, guides users through all settings for an easy operation. Its ease of use enables a professional on-site evaluation and calibration of HDTV systems, immediately locating where problems lie so they may be eliminated.
