A just-unveiled signal generator for HDMI 3D TV, built by digital-connectivity-solutions provider Gefen, could assist anyone installing or designing home-entertainment systems. ?

Ready to throw into the truck, the Gefen ToolBox Mini Pattern Signal Generator offers different test patterns for video displays and projectors using HDMI, including a 3D TV test pattern supporting side-by-side, top-bottom and frame-packing 3D formats. ??

According to Gefen, one of the most valuable features of the Mini Pattern Signal Generator is its ability to determine the maximum KSV count for any connected high-def source, “extremely valuable when distributing a source to multiple displays with HDCP-compliance. You can instantly determine if the source will be able to accomplish any kind of video distribution in the home.” ??

The on-screen display menu guides users through all settings to evaluate HDTV systems, immediately locating problems. It also provides real-time testing of multiple displays and projectors.?
