The Video Measurement Suite (VMS) is a versatile set of video analysis and generation test solutions for validation and production test. The Digital Video Analyzer combines a PXIe-6545 high-speed digital waveform analyzer/generator with a PXI-2172 deserializer and decryption module and VMS software to deliver a comprehensive automated test solution for HDMI-enabled devices.

With the Digital Video Analyzer, you can test for the HDMI 1.4 Compliance Specification, including InfoFrame content and CEC messaging, and simulate various HDTV sets using the programmable EDID on the analyzer. When combined with PQA software, the Digital Video Analyzer performs real-time measurements for macroblocking, audio drops, and overall picture quality on HDMI streams.

The analyzer works with an extensive set of video formats and timings including:

-480i and 480p 24/25/29.97/30/50/59.94/60 fps
-576i and 576p 24/25/29.97/30/50/59.94/60 fps
-720p systems 24/25/29.97/30/50/59.94/60 fps
-1080i systems 24/25/29.97/30/50/59.94/60 fps
-1080p 24/25/29.97/30/50/59.94/60 fps

The Digital Video Analyzer offers easy-to-use graphical user interfaces, more than 100 measurements on the HDMI protocol, and audio/video quality that is optimized for automated test. High test throughput, coverage for design and production requirements, and relatively low costs ensure a reduced overall ownership cost for high-performance digital video test.
