SM01 Video Test Pattern Generator.

Testing video installations or products can be very expensive and, frankly, intimidating. ScH phase, K-factor, differential phase - terms that might mean little to an engineer not steeped in video terminology.

The SM01 is designed to make video testing simple and quick. Take the subjectivity out of video testing and ensure your installations are not 'on the edge', leading to customer complaints or expensive visits to fix the problem. The SM01 is designed to work with the Tektronix VM700 video measurement kit, although it can be used effectively without. Long obsolete, the VM700 is still available on e-Bay, or better, from second-hand test equipment equipment suppliers. Together the SM01 and VM700 can perform single button measurements of all the video parameters to ensure your product is premium and avoid those field call rates compromising your product and your company's reputation.

The SM01 supports PAL, NTSC and aCVI analogue video outputs and SDI, HD-SDI and 3G-SDI digital outputs, from 525i to 1080p/60Hz.
