MS-TestPro, the First HDBaseT Touchscreen Tester, Reaches the Market

Media Solutions Ltd, a design house for media distribution solutions for the smart home and the AV industry, announced today the availability of the MS-TestPro, the first touchscreen test device for HDBaseT networks. The MS-TestPro provides an elegant, handheld solution for in-field testing of HDBaseT-based systems and cabling.
With its built-in monitoring, logging, and diagnostics capabilities, installers and integrators have access to quick, efficient analysis and troubleshooting, simplifying audiovisual installations.
The MS-TestPro brings HDBaseT Tx, Rx, and PoH (Power over HDBaseT) functionality, providing a highly efficient testing platform for HDBaseT source and sink devices, powered devices, and up to 100 meters/328 feet of Cat5e (or higher) cabling.

There are two MS-TestPro testers currently available:

  • Touchscreen Model, with built-in 3.5” touchscreen
  • Mobile App Model, with built-in 3.5” touchscreen also managed via a mobile application

Each MS-TestPro consists of a main unit, Rx module and a Tx module. It emulates an HDBaseT transmitter or receiver device, operating up to pixel rates of 300MHz, enough to test for 4K ultra-high definition source or sink devices. It allows for testing of both source and sinks, even when installed up to 100m/328ft away. The MS-TestPro monitors performance of the installed cable, analyzes features of both source and sink devices, monitors configurations, and provides a downloadable detailed diagnostic log, saving time and money, and benefitting both installers and end users.

“Testing of AV networks is an essential step in the implementation of any system, and the ability to do so effortlessly on the spot is a major advantage to installers and integrators,” said Eliran Toren, CEO, Media Solutions Ltd. “The MS-TestPro is an affordable handheld device that further simplifies the installation of any HDBaseT network. It saves time and money, without compromising performance or quality.”

“We are happy to welcome Media Solutions as a new HDBaseT Alliance member,” said Ariel Sobelman, President, HDBaseT Alliance. “The company brings a valuable tool for installers and integrators, in that it allows them to work more efficiently with existing and brand-new HDBaseT installations. The MS-TestPro enriches the HDBaseT ecosystem of AV products, and we wish them success.”

The MS-TestPro is currently available for $1395. You can see the MS-TestPro tester at CEDIA 2016, September 13-17 in Dallas where M-Solutions will be a part of the HDBaseT meeting room. For more information or to place an order, you can contact M-Solutions at [email protected].
