The Hamlet Flexiscope is a multi-format multi-standard handheld waveform, vector, audio, picture monitor. Using a built-in 3.5" diagonal high quality VGA (640 x 480) TFT display shows the picture in 4:3 or 16:9 formats. Also shows conventional waveform, vector and audio displays together with data analysis. Easy to plug-in option modules allow operation in all current formats and enables future standards to be accommodated and allows easy upgrade for the user at any time.

The FlexiScope unit is capable of analysis, measurement and monitoring HD SDI, SD SDI and composite video signals and audio in its embedded, or AES/EBU formats and generating HD SDI and SD SDI video and audio signals dependant on the installed modules. Waveform, Vector, Audio and Picture can be monitored and measured. Colored traces, Line Select, stuck bit detect (no activity on one data line).

Built-in headphone socket and speakers are installed directly in the base of the unit, so the decoded audio can be monitored. Hamlet furthers the Flexiscope ’s user-friendly flexibility by including a USB cable socket. This allows computer downloads and data uploads between a PC and the Flexiscope by USB connection.

Using the new Option 03 module, video and audio generation is now available simultaneously with the monitoring and measurement allowing a closed loop testing environment to be set up with the device/system under test

It is ergonomically designed machined aluminium case, operating for over 2 hours on 6 x AA batteries or from the supplied 12V power adaptor.
