HDBaseT has proven to be a very reliable and consistent technology for distributing HD and UHD resolution images, sound and control over long distances. However, there can be issues due to the cabling connecting the transmitter and receiver. Structured cabling varies in specification as it has evolved over the years to cope with increasing demand for bandwidth, and because of the transition to digital signals it has become more necessary to make sure the cabling within an AV signal is correctly installed.

The question then becomes, how does an installer know if an existing installation will work with HDBaseT, or if a new structure cabling system has been correctly installed? To solve this problem Smart-e has created the first in its new range of HDBaseT testers, the 4K-9000. The 4K-9000 is designed to pinpoint faults within HDBaseT installs, giving the user information on any issues within the installation and allowing them to fix any problems that arise.

When the 4K-9000 is connected to the pre-existing cabling it is able to give a full report all useful data, including: Cable length, Signal strength, Bit error rate, and Max error rate on each channel. This gives a prospective installer all the information they need about whether the existing cabling is able to deal with the new solution, potentially saving time and money for both the customer and the installer.

Additionally, the 4K-9000 has a Smart-e created Pass/Fail verification system, which means that in addition to a full read-out a user can simply press a button and the 4K-9000 will tell them whether the system has passed or failed the testers verification test. This means that an installer can get an easy answer as to whether the pre-existing cabling is compatible or not, before going more in depth and looking at any individual problems that may have been noted by the tester.
