Digital video analyser

20 January 2010 Test & Measurement

National Instruments has introduced NI VideoMASTER 3.0, a new PXI Express-based digital video analyser for validation and production test of multimedia devices. VideoMASTER simplifies the testing of multimedia devices by using configurable measurement steps within NI TestStand test management software to automate a full suite of video measurements.

The new analyser makes it possible for engineers to test multimedia devices with high-definition multimedia interfaces (HDMIs). The new solution supports the analysis of HDMI signals with full HD resolution up to 1080p/60 Hz, high-bandwidth digital content protection (HDCP) and deep colour with up to 12-bit colour depth. The VideoMASTER solution also includes more than 160 automated video measurements to eliminate the need for manual testing of HDMI devices such as set-top boxes, Blu-ray players and video recorders. Using this solution, engineers can perform more than 100 video measurements in less than four seconds.

VideoMASTER 3.0 also features improved support for analog video interfaces including composite, S-video and component video. It offers support for the latest versions of NI LabVIEW graphical system development software and NI TestStand as well as improved run-time performance. VideoMASTER solutions are available in a variety of hardware-software bundles to meet diverse test requirements.
