Product Description


PG32e offers SMPTE, vertical graduation, horizontal graduation and single colour test patterns. These patterns can be generated in 16 different resolutions and frame rates with the ability to add a moving square to any combination.

Housed within a durable aluminium body, the 3.2” display gives an immediate visual confirmation of the test pattern output, also allowing use as a video confidence monitor. To assist with exposure and white balance, the PG32e also features waveform and vectorscope monitoring options.

With inputs and outputs for both HDMI and HD-SDI, conversion between the two couldn’t be simpler. All conversion is completely lossless and is completed with no delay. Signal output can also be set as progressive or interlaced, regardless of the input, using the PG32e’s clever ‘P2I’ conversion feature.

New to the PG32e is a testing function for HDMI and BNC cables. By connecting both ends of a video cable to the input/output ports on the PG32e, users can visually check that the signal output is appearing on the screen through the input port. This provides a simple solution for checking that cables are transmitting the signal correctly.

PG32e accepts various sources of power, with an input voltage range of 6~17V. Included with the package are battery mounts for Canon LP-E6, Canon BP911 and Sony NPF batteries. Also included is a D-Tap to mini-XLR cable, allowing use of the built-in mini-XLR port on the PG32e’s body.
