Smart-e 4K-9000 HDBaseT Install Tester Kit SMRT-4K-9000
Smart-e launched their first test products, the 4K-9000 series of HDBaseT testers. These comprehensive test tools come with a suite of measurements enabling the installer to easily identify and then rectify problems.
Based on over 5 years' designing with HDBaseT and over 30 years' experience in the AV and Broadcast market, Smart-e have used their extensive technical knowledge to produce a pair of testers capable of measuring: cable length, signal strength, bit error rate (BER) whilst allowing for firmware updates to the Valens chip set. Future upgrades will also provide an app for real time data gathering.
As Jon Lane, Smart-e's Managing Director says "There is nothing more frustrating than completing an installation only to find that there is no image on the screen. In the old analogue days, it was relatively easy to find the problem but now in the world of digital the problem is where to start! This is where our testers come into play, giving the installer information about the problem, pointing to where the issue might be"
The 4K-9000 testers can also be used to ratify an installation or provide confirmation that an existing installation is HDBaseT ready, this allows an installer to provide a chargeable service to the client.
The testers come in 2 versions, a transmitter 4K-TX9000 and receiver 4K-RX9000, both units support native HDMI and DVI. Transparent DDC connectivity provides HDCP V2.2 & V1.4 compatibility whilst a 10.2 Gbps through-put enables 4K resolutions for 4:4:4 colour space @30Hz, or 4:2:0 @ 60Hz together with Deep Colour, 3D, 2K and 1080p resolutions.
The 4K-9000 testers are available direct from Smart-e and its distributor network. To assist with the installation process and technical queries, Smart-e is also providing dedicated product training sessions for installers. All Smart-e equipment comes with a 3-year warranty and a high level of unlimited technical support.
