Low Res Test Media

Test Media
Test how an encoder handles lower resolution video (D1PAL and below; web-sized), in all aspects of global and local motion, slow/medium/fast motion, with panning, scrolling, zooming, smooth and erratic, high/low contrast, with limited colors/vivid colors and many common subject types. Scenes from Europe (London, Barcelona, Bruges, Munich) and USA (New York, San Francisco, Las Vegas).

Why Choose TVids?

TVids were designed both for encoder users (broadcasters, post production, streaming) and for encoder developers, to provide full test coverage of just about any type of video feature that an encoder is likely to encounter, in sequences which you can freely use for demos, trade shows, and on your website.

Every TVid source was captured specifically to cover specific video situations that encoders will encounter.  These situations were then codified in the manual and spreadsheet for each source.  Both content (animals, people, buildings) and challenges (angles, banding, focus, panning, patterns) are listed for easy searching when detecting problems, or finding clips to challenge particular parts of the encoder.

All TVids were captured at the highest possible resolution, bit depth and frame rate.  Lower resolution and frame rate versions were carefully created from the higher frame rate and resolution, providing the best possible quality.  This also means the same tests can be made against equipment and software running at different frame rates and sizes (e.g. 1080, 720 and SD).

TVids provide the most complete suite of test video, that are uncompressed, high bit depth, high frame rate and well documented in the industry.  TVids also provide a liberal multiple use in house and full use of exported/converted video and audio, with no worry about media and display rights internationally.

TestVid Tools

To get the most out of your TestVid test clips, TestVid has all the tools you need to display, convert and output your test material, test patterns and even other test material sources.  All TestVid material is shipped in the highest possible quality, and can be read by a number of third party software products. These tools provide guaranteed high quality viewing and conversion to formats that are compatible with almost all off-the-shelf software.

TestVid Reactor

TestVid Reactor is a dedicated tool that supports lossless conversion to uncompressed types and high quality conversion to compressed formats.  Direct high bit depth YCbCr conversion from the original material to MOV, AVI, YUV, V210, DPX or MXF means every possible bit is preserved in a perfectly compatible format. Compressed outputs like XDCam, AVCi (optional), ProRes and DNxHD (optional) are also available for maximum display compatibility.  Selectable timecode burn in and audio/video frame sync pulses adds further flexibility to the test media and test pattern output.

TestVid Pro Player

TestVid Pro Player provides 10 bit YCbCr to DVI, HDMI and HD-SDI using your AJA, BlueFish444 or Blackmagic video card, under Windows or OS-X. This player supports both the native, high bit depth raw file format or the test videos and patterns, as well as most standard scientific, post production and broadcast file formats.  YUV, AVI, MOV, MXF, DPX, HDR/Raw and even MPEG-2, MPEG-4, h.264 and internet file types can be be played.  Raw data (decimal/hex view), histogram, waveform monitors, vectorscope, and full screen DVI modes are included.

Special Limited Time Offer

For a limited time, both the TestVid Reactor and TestVid Pro Player are available bundled with any T2V (SD, HD, 2K and 4K test media) or T3D (3D 4K, 2K or HD) media set.  One full feature license of both products will be included, with full support and updates for one year.  Since we are including the TestVid Tools for free, if you need to license the AVCi and DNxHD codecs they are optional. Please note, this is a limited time offer.

TestVid Extras

Test Pattern Set - All TestVid test media packages include TestVid's Test Pattern set.  The test pattern set includes over 100 test patterns for each video standard, including 4K, 2K, HD 1080, 720, SD PAL and SD NTSC.  Audio files with calibrated Peak/RMS, EBU.128/1195 loudness, channel IDs and standard waveforms are also included.  All patterns are 10 bit YCbCr frames, and up to 24 bit audio at 48000 Hz.  

Test Pattern File Generator - Included with the test pattern source files is the TVid Test Pattern File Generator.  This software allows the single frame patterns and audio to be combined into MXF, MOV, AVI and other standard files for use in testing, editing and calibration.  The pattern files are also fully compatible with the included TestVid Pro Player for immediate HDMI, HD-SDI or DVI output, and TestVid Reactor for conversion to AVI, MOV, DPX, YUV, and MXF. This pattern system is also available separately for 99$ USD.
