Tektronix Inc., a provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation, has announced the availability of the TDSHT3, an oscilloscope software package that provides an automated compliance testing solution for High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) products.

According to the company, the high-performance software is the industry's first package to enable engineers to efficiently perform reliable in-house compliance tests in accordance with the HDMI Compliance Test Specifications (CTS).

"The HDMI software [TDSHT3] enables our customers to perform a wide range of tests efficiently and reliably," said Colin Shepard, VP of Oscilloscope Products for Tektronix. "The Tektronix offering, including the oscilloscope, data time generator, a complete library of test patterns built upon the HDMI CTS framework, and crucial test adapters provide customers with the most complete in-house solution for HDMI testing."

HDMI is the first industry-supported, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface. It is still in an early phase of market adoption, but the company said that many industry sources expect HDMI to overtake Digital Visual Interface (DVI) in consumer electronics products such as televisions, STBs and DVD players within the next two to four years.

Conformance to HDMI standards and test specifications ensures reliable results with TDSHT3. It features a high level of automation, less manual set-ups, accurate eye rendering and precise violation testing.

The software enables remote control of signal sources, automates Sink, Source and Cable tests, and cuts test times. Automatic Mask-fit measurements and Pass/Fail notification delivers quick results and one-button selection of multiple tests ensures faster testing.
