“Today’s multimedia test engineers face increasingly sophisticated challenges to maintaining quality while increasing throughput and saving money,” said Eric Starkloff, vice president of test marketing at National Instruments. “The release of VideoMASTER 3.0 illustrates our company’s continuing investment in helping engineers decrease development time, streamline processes and reduce costs for multimedia test.”
The new PXI Express digital video analyzer 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 color with up to 12-bit color depth. The VideoMASTER digital video analyzer 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 VideoMASTER 3.0, engineers can perform more than 100 video measurements in less than four seconds. This high-performance functionality helps engineers achieve higher test throughput without sacrificing test quality.
VideoMASTER 3.0 also features improved support for analog video interfaces including composite, S-video and component video. With support for the latest versions of NI LabVIEW graphical system development software and NI TestStand as well as improved run-time performance, VideoMASTER 3.0 delivers a fast and powerful test solution for automated video test. VideoMASTER solutions are available in a variety of hardware-software bundles to meet diverse test requirements.
