UK integrator adds all-in-one test solution to its toolset

UK-based AV technical design and integration company, Technovations Ltd has added MSolutions’ portable MS-TestPro MS104B test device and HDMI Cable Tester module to its installation toolset.

Technovations’ installers can now use the device to verify signal presence, visual quality, and structural cable integrity for residential as well as commercial projects.

MSolutions’ MS-TestPro MS104B is a portable, battery-powered handheld device that provides built-in monitoring, logging and diagnostics capabilities to test and certify HDBaseT connections. The device then returns information needed to confirm link stability and quality, including 4K UHD signals. 

The device supports simple attachment of the HDMI Cable Tester modules to perform bandwidth and physical layer tests at both ends of an HDMI cable, rather than requiring a separate device to identify missing or defective wires under the shield. 

The fact that it is an all-in-one solution is what really sold the device to Technovations. Owner Graham Owens said: “The AV market moves very quickly, and we often have several jobs in motion at once, each with a different problem. 

“The signal path is complicated enough, and it’s important to identify problems as they surface. I don’t want to waste time swapping out devices to solve each problem.”

The MSolutions approach allows installers to troubleshoot typical HDBaseT connection issues, such as black screens and audio drops, and test the conductors and shielding for each HDMI cable.
