Rohde & Schwarz video testers support tests on analog audio/video interfaces in addition to HDMI and MHL testing
Rohde & Schwarz has introduced an analog analyzer module for the R&S VTC video test center, the R&S VTE video tester and the R&S VTS compact video tester.
This module enables manufacturers of consumer electronics equipment to comprehensively test the latest digital interfaces such as HDMI and MHL as well as classic analog audio/video interfaces using only one measuring instrument. The R&S VTx family of video testers from Rohde & Schwarz now offers the widest range of interfaces and functionalities on the market.
The new R&S VT-B2370 analog AV RX analyzer module comes with one composite input and two analog audio test interfaces. As an option, three inputs for analyzing SD and HD component signals and VGA (RGBHV) can be activated. Currently, the R&S VTx video testers can be used to analyze analog video signals in the time domain and to measure the color components using a vectorscope. In the future, it will also be possible to automatically measure common signal parameters. The most important parameters for analog audio signals are tested, including frequency and phase response, total harmonic distortion, signal-to-noise ratio, crosstalk and level.
