TG-5000 Dual Format HD-SDI Pattern Generator

General

To answer the demands for a cost effective HD-SDI pattern generator Maxtron introduces the TG-5000 test pattern generator. The TG-5000 is a very low-cost HD-SDI generator which supports only the 720p and 1080i HD formats 59.94Hz frame rates. These two formats are the only formats used by broadcast facilities in the US and Canada.

The TG-5000 provides the SMPTE RP 219-2002 HD color bar signal with the “Wizard” icon moving across the screen in a ping-pong motion. The pattern is native 16:9 aspect ratio and produces of both 75% and 100% color bars, a white strip, black-level steps, and linear ramp.

Mechanically the TG-5000 is very sturdily built and comes in a conveniently small package. It won’t roll off the bench or hide under a monitor. The package size is 4 x 2.5 x 1.25 inches. The TG-5000 includes an external power supply, and can be ordered with the optional internal L-ion battery pack for runtimes up to 5 hours.
