MSolutions To Unveil Several Features To Its MS-TestPro Portable Test Device

MSolutions is to unveil several built-in and modular features to its MS-TestPro portable test device at ISE 2020.

MSolutions will exhibit at the HDBaseT Alliance stand (5-T80) in the Amsterdam RAI from February 11-14.

MSolutions has been active in HDBaseT development since the standard was introduced in 2010, and the MS-Test Pro device was introduced in 2017 to simplify the adoption and installation of HDBaseT media networks. The company has continued to add new features and modules that enable installers to test for other AV requirements using the same device, including HDMI cables.

At ISE 2020, MSolutions will introduce and demonstrate new AV over IP testing capabilities that address emerging signal and infrastructure test needs in AV environments. MSolutions will also demonstrate its specialized HDMI Cable Tester module, which allows integrators to efficiently perform bandwidth and physical layer quality tests, to ISE audiences for the first time.

"We continue to develop new innovations that address emerging needs for AV integrators, building on a proven solution that merges cost-efficiency with an all-inclusive feature set," said Eliran Toren, CEO, MSolutions. "Our new IP-capable test features give installers the insight they need today to verify signal integrity and network health in AV over IP systems without having to purchase a separate device, while allowing them to test for HDBaseT and HDMI requirements from the same portable platform."

The MS-TestPro is the first device of its kind to integrate AV over IP test capabilities into an HDBaseT device, eliminating the need for an expensive standalone IP tester. The software-driven capabilities, available to existing users via a simple software update, are activated upon connecting the device to a network switch.

Once connected, the software provides immediate, detailed feedback on network switch information and settings, and a general overview of IP network conditions and connections. The information received allows integrators to quickly confirm if the network settings fit the AV over IP requirements. This includes identifying network configuration faults, the status of network ports (open or blocked), and whether pertinent multicast settings are correctly enabled.

MSolutions introduced its HDMI Cable Tester module last year to provide customers with a comprehensive physical layer quality test solution. The HDMI Cable Tester drills down to each cable’s conductors and shielding, and provides instant feedback on missing or defective wiring.

The module easily attaches to both ends of an HDMI cable, and delivers detailed information on HDMI bandwidth requirements, the presence of HDMI-standard conductors, and compatibility tests for signals up to 4K@60Hz 4:4:4 in the HDMI 2.0 specification. MSolutions is in the process of developing a special pattern generator for next-generation HDBaseT systems and HDMI specifications.
