Initial approval covers 4K x 2K video format compliance testing for HDMI sources.


Quantum Data™, a worldwide provider of video test equipment, has announced that their source compliance test tool has been approved by the HDMI technical committee for use in the HDMI Authorized Test Centers (ATCs). The approved source compliance test tool is part of the 980 Protocol Analyzer 297MHz "Gen 3" model. This initial approval for the HDMI CTS version 1.4b covers the 4Kx2K Video Format Timing Test ID 7 -39 for HDMI source devices. The HDMI CTS version 1.4a had not identified recommended test equipment for the 7 -39 Test ID.

Quantum Data has consistently provided compliance test solutions for the HDMI ecosystem. These solutions include CEC compliance, HDCP compliance, and EDID compliance available on the 882 platform and more recently HDMI source and sink compliance tests offered in the 980 Protocol Analyzer.

"We welcome the availability of test equipment that meets the markets' need for the development of 4K x 2K applications for HDMI technology," said Steve Venuti President of HDMI, LLC.

The 980 Protocol Analyzer compliance test tools support a broad range of HDMI source and sink compliance tests. Quantum Data continues to pursue HDMI approval for the entire supported source and sink compliance test suites. The 980 Protocol Analyzer is suitable for pre -testing HDMI source and sink products prior to submission to an ATC and also for self -testing where manufacturers have tested initial source products at e ATC.

The 980 Protocol Analyzer provides developers with complete visibility into the HDMI protocol, control, metadata, timing data and auxiliary data at the higher HDMI 1.4 pixel rates up to 297MHz. Unlike competing analyzers for HDMI source testing, the 980 captures all data islands and control events and assigns precise timestamps to each event even when packets are transmitted in rapid succession.
