SM01: NTSC / PAL / SDI Video Pattern generator and encoder

SM01 is a broadcast quality SD video pattern generator and video encoder with support for 960H and 1280H formats.

SM01 generates 48 different 10-bit patterns (including a circular zone plate) and provides simultaneous SDI, YPbPr and CVBS.

Additionally SM01 accepts SMPTE-259 SDI inputs which it encodes to all the above outputs.

White noise and 50/60Hz hum may also be added to the CVBS output.

SM01 is easy to operate, affordable and compact.

It is perfect for the evaluation and measurement of SD video products and installations in industries such as security (CCTV), industrial inspection and broadcast TV.
