Based on PXI Express technology, the hardware acquires 1080p60, HDCP-encrypted content and applies a library of proven measurements to objectively measure picture quality.

The NI Picture Quality Analysis software offers powerful algorithms for referenced video testing during multimedia device design and validation. For higher throughput applications, NI Picture Quality Analysis software offers real-time high-performance measurements to remove operator error and subjective tests. You can use the configurable interface to choose referenced or non-referenced testing, select pre-built measurements, set limits, and automate applications.
