MS-TestPro launches HDBaseT touchscreen test device
Media Solutions Ltd, a design house for media distribution systems for the smart home and the AV industry, announced today the availability of the MS-TestPro, the first touchscreen test device for HDBaseT networks.
The MS-TestPro provides a handheld solution for in-field testing of HDBaseT-based systems and cabling. It has built-in monitoring, logging, and diagnostics capabilities, to provide integrators with quick access to analysis and troubleshooting, simplifying AV installations.
The MS-TestPro brings HDBaseT Tx, Rx, and PoH (Power over HDBaseT) functionality, providing a testing platform for HDBaseT source and sink devices, powered devices, and up to 100m/328ft of Cat5e (or higher) cabling.
There are two MS-TestPro testers currently available:
• Touchscreen Model, with built-in 3.5” touchscreen
• Mobile App Model, with built-in 3.5” touchscreen also managed via a mobile application
Each MS-TestPro consists of a main unit, Rx module and a Tx module. It emulates an HDBaseT transmitter or receiver device, operating up to pixel rates of 300MHz, enough to test for 4K ultra-high definition source or sink devices. It allows for testing of both source and sinks, even when installed up to 100m/328ft away.
The MS-TestPro monitors performance of the installed cable, analyses features of both source and sink devices, monitors configurations, and provides a downloadable detailed diagnostic log,.
