VIDEO CONVERTER SERIALIZER

Autonomous Operation
of Vehicle Displays

Our Video Converter Serializers were developed to enable the autonomous operation of automotive video displays for development and testing. This means that a head unit/ECU is not required for commissioning. Instead, you can operate the vehicle display directly on your PC or laptop. True “Plug & Play” within a few minutes.

TZ Video Converter Serializers are series-produced for the generally used GMSL and FPD-LINK technology standards and are available with a variety of connectors such as FAKRA or Rosenberger HSD.

We will be pleased to realize other technologies and connectors individually for you on request.

We can also preconfigure the individual application on the software side for each device, whereby up to 100 different configurations can be stored in the device. You also have the option of creating your own settings via our TZ GUI software.

Applications

  • Laboratory tests and measurements of parameters such as color reproduction, contrast, brightness, viewing angle, etc.
  • Verification of specifications according to the vehicle manufacturer
  • Development of screen and UX designs on the real display
  • Environmental tests (resistance/function at heat shock, cold, UV radiation, etc.)
  • Hardware-in-the-loop tests (long-term tests)
  • End-of-line tests
  • Test and trial runs

TZ electronic systems offers a wide range of Video Converter Serializers as standard. If your combination of requirements is not covered, then we are happy to implement a solution which meets your specific needs.

Functions

Depending on the equipment, you can do much more with our video converters than just transfer video signals to vehicle displays. We also offer devices that are able to emulate CAN signals and map additional functions such as touch operation.

Settings Selector

All our video converter serializers allow different configurations for various displays to be switched between via rotary switch. Up to 100 different customer-specific configurations can be stored – this saves valuable time and cuts costs.

Remote Control

Remote switching of the settings is also possible via the USB port, e.g. for automated end-of-line tests with different displays in the network.

Control Channel Master

Registry entries can also be read and set during operation via the built-in USB Control Channel Master. As a result, no additional tools are required for this task.

TZ GUI Software

Our TZ GUI, a powerful and user-friendly software which allows the easy and fast configuration of new components and test tasks, is available for all our current products. As an alternative, we will also be pleased to create new configurations for you.

Status LEDs

Status LEDs for the most important functions indicate the respective operating status and allow quick identification of possible error sources.

2:1 Switch

Some of our devices have a built-in 2:1 switch. These enable you, e.g. during trial runs, to switch back and forth between the signals of the head unit/ECU installed in the vehicle and an additionally connected PC at the push of a button (more about this here). We offer external switches from 2:1 to 20:1 as an alternative.

Touch Function

More and more vehicle displays feature touch operation. All touch functions are fully usable with our appropriately equipped devices.

CAN Signal Emulator

A display needs the CAN data as well as the video data to enable it to function. As an option, we also offer video converters that simultaneously emulate the CAN signals required for test operation, thereby enabling completely autonomous operation of the display.

Extensive Interfaces

Additional external sockets can be used to connect further tools and test devices, e.g. to test the touch functionality of a display.
