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.

SM01 generates simultaneous SDI and NTSC/PAL outputs.

SM01 generates 12 different patterns, including a circular zone plate. Pattern and standard are simply selected using push button switches, with the selection displayed on a small status display.

The SM01 can be powered using a universal input power adaptor or it can run standalone using internal batteries for more than 4 hours of continuous operation.
