Tech Specs
The new Videotek® SD-STAR™ is a handheld, battery-powered monitor and test generator for SD-SDI and analog composite video signals. The unit provides multiformat functionality and versatility, setting it apart from other handheld test products on the market.

With a powerful array of features and functions, including a video test signal generator, color monitor, waveform monitor, vectorscope, oscilloscope and audio analyzer/monitor, the lightweight SD-STAR is ideal for monitoring field production camera setup, equipment installations or troubleshooting signal path issues related to analog and standard-definition digital formats.

This PDA-sized test monitor offers the convenience of portability without sacrificing function and performance. To enhance the user experience, the SD-STAR features an integrated 320x240 color LCD that utilizes touchscreen technology to control and configure each operation. Maintaining power in the field isn’t a problem either — the SD-STAR runs on a rechargeable lithium ion battery pack that can deliver more than six hours of continuous operation (subject to functionality selected).

The SD-STAR includes two video inputs — one for monitoring composite analog NTSC and PAL video signals and one for monitoring SD-SDI signals formatted in SMPTE 259M-C with embedded audio. The analog input can be used with the oscilloscope function for a variety of analog signals. The test signal generator has individual outputs of composite analog video and SD-SDI. The stereo headphone output may be configured to monitor embedded audio from the SDI source or double as a monaural analog tone generator output.

Standard accessories include a sunshield, rechargeable lithium ion battery pack, AC power adapter, serial communications cable and a belt-style pouch.
