Wohler offers 3G portable signal test generator
PANORAMAdtv, the video products division of Wohler, makes the Touchstone 3G portable signal test generator for digital video and audio. The palm-sized, battery-operated device is targeting a need for flexible testing of signals including 3Gb/s serial digital signals.
Disk backup, video editing, nearline data storage, and other media-focused applications involve a greater volume of data than ever before. The Touchstone device makes it easy to test and confirm these signals.
The Touchstone 3G unit can generate 37 different 10-bit video test patterns with embedded audio signals that provide programmed tones for up to eight stereo pairs. Video test patterns include motion zone plates and a pathological signal for 4:2:2 digital signals including 1080-50/60P at 3Gb/s.
Touchstone 3G can be powered by rechargeable or single-use batteries, in addition to an included universal AC supply. Touchstone 3G is extremely portable and may be carried as easily as a mobile phone. An optional carry case with integrated belt clip allows for convenient, hands-free transport.
