Handheld test solution for
HDBase-T cabling and systems
MS-TestPro is a handheld tool that provides in-field testing
of HDBase-T cabling and systems. Manufactured by Media
Solutions Ltd., the MS-TestPro is designed specifically for AV
installers, integrators and technicians. A newly added feature
enables users of the solution to generate a certification report on
the quality of each cable installed, thereby simplifying the installation of HDBase-T networks, explains Media Solutions.
“The MS-TestPro generates a report after a very brief test, indi-
cating the quality of various installation parameters,” the com-
pany said. “These include detailed information about link qual-
ity, link status of the transmitter and receiver,
pixel clock, HDBase-T link chip type,
and cable length. In addition, user-
friendly graphs summarizing the over-
all information are generated.”
Eliran Toren, co-founder and chief
executive offi- cer of Media Solutions, commented, “The
HDBase-T report generator tool can analyze data automatically
collected by the MS-TestPro and create a report detailing the
quality of an HDBase-T-routed cable.
The report can be transferred to a computer or a smartphone.
“This is a great opportunity for professional AV installers and
integrators,” Toren added. “For the first time ever, they can
inspect the HDBase-T installation quality within less than a minute
while in the field, detecting any possible failures on the line.”
The company recently announced that the tester offers full
support for HDBase-T testing analysis and inline diagnostic capa-
bilities for 4K content. The company said that using the tester,
“installers can immediately detect line sensitivity and reduce
installation time. The MS-TestPro generates a 4K readiness cer-
tification report, presenting highly important HDBase-T transmis-
sion-quality data, and ensuring 4K content streaming quality and
support for any topology or architecture.”
Ariel Marcus, Media Solutions’ co-founder and chief technol-
ogy officer, explained, “With the growing demand for 4K res-
olution content, we need to transmit four times as much data.
Currently HDBase-T is limited to a bandwidth of 8 Gbits/sec. To
quadruple the bandwidth, HDBase-T transitions to pulse ampli-
tude modulation (PAM) with 16 levels (PAM- 16) instead of 8 levels
(PAM- 8)—increasing the possibility of error.
"MS-TestPro adjusts the testing criteria while switching from
1080p to 4K resolution in order to meet the required transmission quality.” u
