The Teledyne LeCroy 780 series handheld test instruments for HDMI® are battery powered (except 780C, 780D and 780E), portable video and audio generators and HDMI analyzers that enable you to conduct quick, on-site verification testing and troubleshooting of your HDMI system and analog video displays. The 780 series instruments are equipped with both a reference source and a reference sink interface allowing you to test audio, video and protocols of any type of digital video device: sources, repeaters and sinks.
The following is a high level view of the comparative features and attributes of the 780 series instruments. Please refer to the data sheets for each device for more detailed information on each module.
You can use the 780 instruments as a pattern generator for calibrating your high definition TVs. The 780s are equipped with a variety of standard patterns and formats including deep color and HDMI 3D formats.
Because the 780 series instruments have both output and input ports, you can test your digital video cables and systems with splitters, extenders and switches even when already installed on site using the Frame Compare feature. The type of digital video ports vary depending on the model but all the 780 series models are equipped with HDMI input and output ports.
The 780 series instruments can also be equipped with the optional Auxiliary Channel Analyzer (ACA) utility for monitoring the HDMI/HDBaseT DDC (HDCP and EDID) transactions and hot plug events. There are two ACA options, one for monitoring while emulating an HDMI source and/or sink and a second option for monitoring passively an HDMI network comprised of an HDMI source, repeater and sink. The passive monitoring option requires an extra hardware board with 4 HDMI ports.
The 780s’ portability makes them ideal for your bench and for use in the field. A color touch display makes the 780 instruments easy and convenient to use and when testing a source device you can view the incoming video image and metadata on the built-in LCD.
