Chroma Presents Next Generation 8K & Type-C Video Signal Test Solutions

07 Jan 2021

The display market continues to race for ever higher resolutions and currently has reached 8K SHV (Super Hi-Vision). These high-resolution display applications equally drive the optimization of video interfaces. For example, the HDMI 2.1 specification introduced a single HDMI signal line capable of transmitting 8K video signals, with FRL (Fixed Rate Link) mode that can support up to 48Gbps.

USB Type-C integrates video transmission (DP Alt Mode), bidirectional power supply and data transmission functions, portability, as well as non-directionality (supporting both positive and negative insertion), and is already applied to various devices.

Chroma 2238 Supports HDMI 2.1 Dynamic 8K Video Output

Chroma 2238 Video Pattern Generator integrates A222812 HDMI 8K Media Player Module to support HDMI 2.1 dynamic video playback output resolution up to 7680x4320@60Hz and H.265 (HEVC, High Efficiency Video Coding) high efficiency video coding format playback. Easily edit and compose test programs, which eliminates the need for repeated wiring to achieve dynamic and static signal output when combined with the A222805 signal module. This test solution applies to equipment for public and advertising display, but also for laboratories and production testing.
