CHATSWORTH, CA - Connectivity solutions provider Gefen is pleased to announce the availability of the new Gefen TV Signal Generator. This solution is packaged under the Gefen TV prosumer brand, and is recommended for anyone installing, designing, and purchasing home theater systems today.
Designed for easy portability, this device enables real-time testing of all video displays and projectors operating with the HDMI format (or DVI if used with an adapter). Nearly 40 video testing patterns including HDCP verification, three audio testing signals, a sine-wave formation and 35 timing settings are accessible through
the unit's LCD display menu. These features enable a complete evaluation and calibration of HDTV systems, offering an easy method of locating where problems lie so they may be eliminated.
"I used it myself on a recently upgraded home theater system," said Hagai Gefen, president and CEO. "I was able to easily identify the trouble in the long-distance cables and a trouble-shooting process that could have taken hours took just a few minutes."
Users can navigate the Gefen TV Signal Generator's menu through the navigation buttons and easy to read LCD on top of the unit. Advanced users can download a Windows-based application for extra timing and programming controls, including reading/writing of EDID and favorite timing modes for the auto scroll feature.
The unit comes equipped with supplemental RCA and TOSlink audio inputs in addition to the HDMI output, and supports the measurement of both standard and high definition video formats including PAL and NTSC. An overscan option is included when working with undersized video.
The Gefen TV Signal Generator (MSRP $699) comes with a six-foot HDMI cable, a six-foot RCA cable and a 5v power supply.
