An HDMI 2.1 Pattern Generator and Analyzer with enhanced gaming features, dubbed the UCD-422, is an HDMI 2.1-capable 8K device supporting Dolby Vision testing and other HDR formats. The UCD-422 is now available for order.
The UCD-422 supports FRL and TMDS modes and can test video up to 8K at 60 fps. Support for HDCP 2.2 and HDCP 2.3 is also available. Unigraf’s user-friendly UCD Console GUI provides users with a built-in pattern generator as well as a live preview of the captured video and audio. The UCD-422 comes with built-in tests for video (CRC), audio and link. All tests can be easily automated.
The UCD-422 also features enhanced gaming features in the Variable refresh rate (VRR) and Auto Low Latency Modes (ALLM). With these enhanced gaming features UCD-422 is a complete test tool for game console and display manufacturers.
The UCD-422 supports Dolby Vision and can be used to test Dolby Vision at up to 8K resolution. “Unigraf first started supplying Dolby Vision Test Tools with the UCD-323 for HDMI 2.0 Test kits. The UCD-422 expands Unigraf’s Dolby Vision Test Tools to HDMI 2.1 interface and 8K resolution,” said Viktor Khachtchanski, R&D Manager of Unigraf.
