Portable instrument is first with DisplayPort and HDBaseT interfaces
Adding to the quantumdata 780 series handheld test instruments, Teledyne LeCroy. Introduces the 780E multi-protocol analyser / generator is equipped with DisplayPort input and output ports making it the only portable instrument capable of testing HDMI, HDBaseT and DisplayPort devices and distribution networks including HDCP 2.2 verification, says the company.
It is claimed to offer the broadest feature set available in a portable instrument, supporting tests for video, audio, protocols and the auxiliary channels. The instrument can run quick verification tests on distinct devices of any type (sources, repeaters, sinks) as well as entire video distribution networks, including heterogeneous networks comprising a mix of HDMI, DisplayPort and HDBaseT devices.
Both the DisplayPort interfaces, which support link rates up to 5.4Gbit/s on one, two or four lanes, and the 600MHz HDMIs, support verification of HDCP 2.2 authentication on sources and sinks (displays). The auxiliary channel analyser utility enables HDCP 2.2 transactions to be monitored in the same way the HDCP 1.4 transactions can be monitored on the existing 780 models.
