MS Systems Tester Verifies HDBaseT Connectivity, 4K Signals

MS Systems has introduced a testing solution that is capable of testing HDBaseT connectivity with signals as dynamic as Ultra HD 4K.


Media Solutions, a manufacturer of media distribution products, has bolstered the feature set of its MS-TestPro HDBaseT system tester

The Israeli-based manufacturer’s new integrator-friendly option allows users to generate a certification report, and it supports the ability to inspect individual cabling runs to streamline the installation of HDBaseT networks.

“The HDBaseT report generator tool can analyze data automatically collected by the MS-TestPro and create a report detailing the quality of an HDBaseT routed cable. The report can be then transferred to a computer or smartphone,” says Eliran Toren, co-founder and CEO of Media Solutions. “This is a great opportunity for professional A/V installers and integrators. For the first time ever they can inspect the HDBaseT installation quality within less than a minute while in the field, detecting any possible failures on the line.”

MS Solutions’ MS-TestPro Documents HDBaseT Reliability

Media Solutions explains the MS-TestPro generates a report after testing to indicate cabling infrastructure parameters.

Some of the details the report produces include information on link quality, link status of the transmitter and receiver, the pixel clock, the HDBaseT link chip type and cable length.

All of this information is communicated via user-friendly graphs that summarize the tested performance traits.

The MS-TestPro is compatible with Ultra HD 4K-enabled HDBaseT systems. The MS-TestPro with the 3.5-inch touchscreen (MS102TD) carries an MSRP of $1,395. The Wi-Fi Client Model with a built-in HDMI test pattern generator (MS103TDs) carries an MSRP of $1,695.
