The Extron VTG 300 and VTG 300R are handheld, battery-operated video and audio test generators featuring high resolution computer-video, plasma, HDTV, and 16:9 rates, as well as standard definition NTSC or PAL video rates for RGB, component video, S-video, and composite video. The VTG 300R features a fixed rechargeable battery with an internal charger, while the VTG 300 operates on four AA batteries. Both models can be AC powered when the included external power supply is connected. When fully charged, the VTG 300R can operate continuously for up to approximately 5 hours. Each product is lightweight and compact for portable field use or bench testing. As versatile, broadcast quality reference tools, these test generators can be used for projector set-up, performance evaluation, alignment, convergence, calibration, synchronization, troubleshooting, and accurate video and audio signal reproduction in professional A/V applications.
The VTG 300 and VTG 300R feature streamlined user interfaces with easy-to-read, backlit LCD displays and rubber pushbuttons for direct and simple access to video and audio functions. The 13 video test patterns can be used with any of the 34 video scan rates. An integrated audio tone generator includes six audio test signals on a balanced XLR connector, as well as unbalanced on a female RCA connector and 3.5 mm dual-channel mono mini jack. When the test generator is turned off, the most recent settings are stored and automatically recalled when the unit is turned on again. The VTG 300 and VTG 300R are housed in compact, rugged enclosures. Each comes with a protective rubber boot to guard against severe environments and prolong the lifespan of the test generator. The boot is also reversible to cover and protect the front of the unit when not in use.
