The 8K SIX-G: An HDMI 8K Signal Generator
Everyone’s favorite HDMI test device received an 8K overhaul. The 8K SIX-G from Murideo is beyond a test pattern generator. It is an essential tool for anyone working with HDMI. Able to produce video signals up to 40Gbps allowing you to test any 8K capable HDMI product, including 8K TVs, sources, AVR’s, and projectors.
- Ideal for Modern Display Calibration
- 40Gbps Maximum Bandwidth
- 8K60 (4:2:0) 10-bit
- Full HDR, Dolby Vision, HDR10+ and HLG support
- EDID Read Functionality

The Murideo 8K SIX-G is an HDMI pattern generator intended for the AV integration market to confirm HDMI 2.0(b) and HDCP 2.3 operation at the 40Gbps level. This device can create a signal that allows it to act as any modern HDMI source. Additionally, the SIX-G is an excellent field troubleshooting tool for distributed high bandwidth HDMI systems and a reference source for video calibration.
The handheld device is portable thanks to a built-in battery and can generate over 100 different test patterns for setup, calibration, and troubleshooting. There’s a three-inch color display with simplified menus as well as free PC control software. The 8K SIX-G also features Hot Plug Detect, EDID read/write functionality, and the ability to create custom resolutions. There’s the option for either RS232 or USB control and support for Calman and Light Illusion calibration software. The 8K SIX-G is the only unit to carry the complete suite of ISF test patterns, select-able color output level, RGB Triplets, and Constant APL (Average Picture Level) all in one place. The 8K SIX-G is a calibrator’s dream because it’s: ISF Labs certified, the firmware is field upgradable, and it even includes audio confidence tests.
Pair the 8K SIX-G with the 8K SIX-A Analyzer, and you have the most powerful HDMI system troubleshooting system on the planet! You can upload any image/pattern you want. The uploader will store the pattern in one of the ten available “slots” for recall later. It will even upload the thumbnail to the LCD screen. It supports .jpeg, .png, .bin and .bmp.
You can access the Pattern Uploader & Library at our new, consolidated downloads page.
