Quantum Data announced the release of new video signal generators and upgrades supporting High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) version 1.3, enabling display manufacturers to design and manufacture 36-bit deep color displays.

HDMI is a prime digital interface for connecting displays to home theatre, broadcast and gaming sources. Version 1.3 (v1.3) of the interface is backwards compatible with previous versions and adds options for wide-gamut color, faster pixel rates, cable equalization, smaller connectors, advanced audio formats, and lip sync correction – in addition to deep color.

Video test equipment is required to check HDMI compliance and interoperability during development of displays and to detect defects during manufacturing. Today, few displays support the latest HDMI options available in v1.3, as manufacturers have had to wait for silicon and video test equipment to catch up with HDMI specification enhancements before proceeding.

Quantum Data’s new model 881E and 882E generators, built with the latest chips from Silicon Image, are capable of generating triple 12-bit/component colors in 4:4:4 sampling mode up to 165M pixels/second. Added test images reveal “banding” in fine color transitions – a defect that is supposed to be eliminated by HDMI v1.3’s new “deep color” option. As with previous offerings, the new generators output any video format on-demand, render test images, produce test tones, and perform a variety of compliance tests.

"The ABB Power Grids Jumet organisation is an innovative development and production facility of ABB that manufactures active filters and battery energy storage systems to support a stable grid. To test these systems we have acquired two Cinergia GE/EL +120kVA eplus units capable of doing grid emulation (AC + DC), operating as an electronic load (AC +DC) and being a battery emulator. We have experienced very good support from TTMS in obtaining these two Cinergia units. This included organising an on-site demonstration and supplying loan systems prior to the delivery of our final systems. This way we could start testing as early as possible. TTMS also organised training for the operators from the original manufacturer. This support allowed us to introduce the first battery energy storage systems even prior to the full delivery of the Cinergia systems."

“At the Energy and Environment department of the Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine (FSTM) of the University of Luxembourg we do have different research projects related to green energy contributing to the development of eco-cities. As a long-standing partner of our research unit, TT&MS has proven that they are able to answer even the most complex questions in a professional manner. They have shown that they are always up to date with the latest technology and do not spare any effort to look at the application and even the situation on site. The exchange of ideas was always very pleasant and took place quickly. We look forward to further years of fruitful cooperation.”
