Smart-e launches handheld HDBaseT tester
Smart-e has launched its first test products, the 4K-9000 series of HDBaseT testers. The test tools come with a suite of measurements enabling integrators to identify and rectify problems.
Smart-e has produced a pair of testers capable of measuring cable length, signal strength, bit error rate (BER) whilst allowing for firmware updates to the Valens chip set. Future upgrades will also provide an app for real time data gathering.
The 4K-9000 testers can also be used to ratify an installation or provide confirmation that an existing installation is HDBaseT ready, this allows an installer to provide a chargeable service to the client.
The testers come in 2 versions, a transmitter 4K-TX9000 and receiver 4K-RX9000, both units support native HDMI and DVI. Transparent DDC connectivity provides HDCP V2.2 & V1.4 compatibility whilst a 10.2 Gbps through-put enables 4K resolutions for 4:4:4 colour space @30Hz, or 4:2:0 @ 60Hz together with Deep Colour, 3D, 2K and 1080p resolutions.
The 4K-9000 testers are available direct from Smart-e and its distributor network. To assist with the installation process and technical queries, Smart-e is also providing product training sessions for installers. All Smart-e equipment comes with a 3-year warranty and unlimited technical support.
