The second screen is called Timing Details and allows you to create custom resolutions, whilst the third screen shows the various patterns you can select. The fourth screen shows the Settings and here you can select HDMI/DVI, HDCP, Colour Space, Colour Depth etc. and the fifth screen shows the TV EDID information. The final screen is the RGB Triplet where you can select the window size, the window colour and the background colour.
Features & Specs
The Fresco is ISF Certified and includes over 100 test patterns including PLUGE, Chroma Multiburst and moving test patterns to verify image stability processing. There is also APL (Average Picture Level) support and RGB Triplet support via software or direct dial on the device. The Fresco has a left/right stereo input, allowing you to attach an external PCM source to embed into the HDMI output. You can also select up to 32 different speaker configurations from 2.0 to 7.1, with a maximum of 8 channels of audio at up to 24-bit/192kHz thus allowing you to conduct audio confidence tests. The inherent internal architecture of the Fresco means that it can also be upgraded via firmware updates, making it suitably future proof.

Murideo Fresco Six-G Video Generator Review
You have the option to use the Fresco as a handheld device, controlling everything via the buttons on the unit itself, but you can also connect it via USB or RS232. This allows you to use the free PC control software which provides the same setup and testing options but also six different screens that provide far more information than could be shown on a three inch display. The Fresco also supports CalMAN, making it ideal for professional calibrators and making the calibration process as easy and effective as possible. As if all that wasn't enough, you can even run test tones in up to 8 channels for 38 different speaker configurations, so it can even help you you set up and test the audio system as well. So is it worth the roughly £2,100 price tag? Let's put it this way, we've had the Murideo Fresco Six-G for two weeks and it's already indispensable!
