VideoForge HDMI


The VideoForge HDMI is a completely updated model of AV Foundry's VideoForge Classic, which has been the world's best-selling pattern generator since its introduction in 2010.


The new VideoForge HDMI is faster, lighter, and more rugged than its predecessor, with a completely updated hardware body designed for durability. With the VideoForge HDMI's updated, more flexible software engine, users can now configure the internal patterns to fit their needs, or upload their own custom patterns. The VideoForge HDMI is also Wi-Fi capable, a feature entirely new to the VideoForge product-family.
