Sima\'s ExtenHD line offers X -GEN PRO HDMI Signal Generator

Feature rich HDMI tester offers high end benefits.

(Oakmont, PA - July 26th, 2007) How do you know if the signal you are sending is true HD? The ExtenHD™ X -GEN Pro is an HDMI signal generator, allowing the user to select one of over 35 signals at various frequencies. From standard 640 x 480 resolutions up to 1080p signals, the X -GEN pro is an invaluable tool for the bench or toolbox.

The X -GEN Pro has several unique features including an RS -232 port for loading your favorite setups or integrating into a remote control system allowing for off -site diagnosis. The unit can also generate HDCP signals. The HDCP can be turned on or off, which is critical for testing compatible components. The X -GEN Pro can generate patterns in 4:2:2 or 4:4:4 YUV format and also 4:4:4 RGB. The unit provides for the insertion of audio into the HDMI stream and also has an internal tone generator.
"We needed to generate a true HD signal to test our displays. Based on this need, we developed the X -GEN Pro solution," says Bob Pennington, Commercial Products manager at Sima. The tester allows users to dial in a wide variety of signals. It is useful for testing, confirmation and system setup. "We use the running H pattern to setup projection systems. It's also helpful for resolution and keystoning setup" adds Pennington. "The tester outputs DVI signals too, so it is backward compatible," Pennington says. The X -GEN Pro also includes an IR Remote that controls the unit.
The X -GEN Pro is just one of the innovative products made for demanding users in the ExtenHD™ family. Switchers, protocol converters and distribution amplifier/splitters round out the ExtenHD™ line. Products are rack mountable and feature a cable management system that is critical for the current non -latching HDMI connector.
With over 30 years of experience in the electronics industry, Sima continues to innovate, keeping pace with today's changing technology.
