AudioQuest announces availability of the Quantum Data HT-180 Handshake Tester for HDMI

AudioQuest HT-180 HDMI Handshake TesterAudioQuest, a manufacturer and supplier of specialty A/V interconnects and cables, today announced the availability of the Quantum Data HT-180 Handshake Tester for HDMI. This new lightweight, portable test instrument enables A/V custom installers to identify the root cause of HDMI interoperability problems encountered in both field and shop environments.

The new product incorporates expertise gained through Quantum Data’s extensive work in creating HDMI and HDCP compliance test equipment. For technicians and operatives working on A/V custom installations, the ability to troubleshoot HDMI-related problems in the field promises a huge benefit. By diagnosing problems on the job site, installers can avoid costly trips back to the head office that might otherwise be done to check or replace equipment.

AudioQuest HT-180 HDMI Handshake Tester

The HT-180 can test up to three HDMI devices at one time including HD sources (e.g. set-top-box or Blu-Ray player), A/V receivers or switchers, and HDTV displays. Tests are initiated with the press of a button. Once a test is initiated, the HT-180 monitors and logs +5V power status, hot-plug events, and HDCP and EDID transactions over the DDC. When a test is complete, the unit’s LCD display presents simple reason codes (with severity levels) that reflect suspect behavior of specific HDMI products or cables. A supplied PC graphical user interface is provided for users to enter information about the site & equipment in the HDMI system under test. Log files, collected during a test, can be viewed on-site or e-mailed to head office for further analysis.

The HT-180 is available for $1,500. More information can be obtained by calling AudioQuest at (949) 585 0111 or emailing sales@audioquest.com.
