Video test & measurement

SRI Sarnoff’s comprehensive testing tools catch and identify errors throughout the digital signal chain. Built on five decades of video and broadcast experience, our suite of patterns and bitstreams ensures interoperability and digital video quality at every stage from pre-production through to consumption.

    Sarnoff® Bitstreams™ Decoder Compliance Tests

    The Sarnoff® Bitstreams™ suite is the de facto standard for systematically and unambiguously testing decoders against industry standards. Our Emmy® award-winning technology works in a matter of seconds and does not require a reference signal or specialized decoder.

Test patterns and audio

visualizer

Visualizer™ Digital Video Test Pattern

The Visualizer™ test pattern comprehensively evaluates more than 20 key parameters of video quality from a single screen. It can identify processing errors throughout the digital signal chain quickly and easily.

csm

The Color Space and Monitor (CSM) Test Pattern Suite

The CSM Color Space and Monitor test pattern suite tests displays and image processing systems for color space correctness and performance. CSM’s “eyes-only” design reveals trade-offs made during conversion among various color spaces including High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut (WCG) systems.
