Rohde & Schwarz Can Test HLG over HDMI

Rohde & Schwarz has a new module for its R&S VTC/VTE/VTS video tester family that can support testing of HDR and HDMI including HLG and it can support data rates up to 18Gbps. It can also support HDCP 1.4 and 2.2.

The generator function can be used to edit the Dynamic Range and Mastering InfoFrame specifically for HDR and HLG. It displays the Enhanced Extended Display Identification Data (E-EDID) of the connected sink, including the HDR metadata block. It also permits the playback of customer-specific, uncompressed moving picture sequences. The analyzer unit provides suitable E-EDID and displays the Dynamic Range and Mastering InfoFrame. The video analyzer functionality provides bit-accurate display of the electro-optical transfer function (EOTF) in use. HDR CTS tests are available for both the generator and the analyzer.
