Teledyne LeCroy will soon include video protocols into its solutions offerings. Recently, the test tools company announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Quantum Data Inc., maker of HDMI and SDI signal generators and protocol analysers as well as test tools for other digital video technologies.

The purchase is part of Teledyne Lecroy's strategy to expand its protocol offerings into additional wired and wireless data communication standards with the goal to be the market leader in each protocol standard.

Teledyne LeCroy expects that acquiring Quantum Data will enable it to:

  • Broaden its offering of Serial Data Protocol Analysis and Test Tools.
  • Capitalise on growing customer demand for HDMI video generators and test tools.
  • Further penetrate the video broadcast market for emerging serial data test requirements.
  • Build on the recent acquisition of Frontline Test Equipment, a leader in wireless protocol test.

"[HDMI and SDI] standards are key to emerging capabilities in consumer electronics, professional video and studio/broadcast applications. We anticipate a growing need for protocol test tools among designers in these markets," said Teledyne LeCroy's Chief Executive Officer Tom Reslewic.

"As the largest player in the serial data protocol test tools market, LeCroy is well positioned to help Quantum Data unlock growth opportunities in new and existing markets. The opportunity to leverage LeCroy's Ethernet protocol analysers into emerging broadcast applications could provide Quantum Data a key advantage in the market," said Quantum Data CEO Allen Jorgensen.
