The generator function of the module can be used to edit the dynamic range and mastering infoframe for HDR. It displays the extended display identification data (E-EDID) of the connected sink, including the HDR metadata block. In addition, it permits the playback of customer-specific, uncompressed moving picture sequences. The analyzer function also displays E-DID, dynamic range and mastering infoframe. HDR-CTS tests are available for both the generator and analyzer.
In addition to protocol tests, users can perform electrical tests on HDMI sources for debugging and precompliance purposes, as well as analyzing video and audio content.
