Tindie seller Qwertymodo has opened a wait-list for RGBench, a multi-input analog video analysis test-bench gadget designed to sit between almost any analog video signal and an oscilloscope for signal analysis.

"The RGBench is a multi-input analog video analysis test-bench," Qwertymodo's product page explains. "Simple plug-and-play design allows easy interfacing between almost any analog video signal and an oscilloscope. This solves the problem of trying to figure out how to attach probes to various video connectors, and includes a switchable 75-ohm load termination on each signal. While this device is primarily designed for signal analysis, it can also be used as a pass-through adapter with the load resistors disabled."

Each RGBench comes with a five-connector BNC output cable, and provides input connectors for VGA, SCART, mini-DIN, RCA, and BNC via optional BNC-to-RCA adapters. The unit supports video in line-level or TTL analog RGB format using an integrated sync signal, separate H/V sync, or CSYNC, YPbPr component, S-Video, and composite video formats.

While the RGBench is not yet available to buy, Qwertymodo has opened a wait-list for an upcoming production run with each unit priced at $65 with bundled output cable.

More information is available on the official product page.
