There are eight standard performance tests which can be selected within the scene designer. To add a test, click on the 'Create new' button. This will add the tests one by one in the order shown below:

Pressing the ‘X’ next to a test will remove that test from the scene.

These tests can be assigned to any text elements. To add a performance test into a scene, click the ‘Text’ icon shown below.

Within the right hand panel, the parameter settings can be set to ‘Performance tests’ and then the desired test chosen.

Performance Test results will show as ‘Time taken’ by default. The following format options can be selected.

Once the parameter has been set as desired, the performance test will actively display on the video overlay.

Note that all on-screen performance tests will start in a stopwatch-style counter when the start conditions are met, and will freeze holding results on screen as soon as test end conditions are achieved.

Tests will be reset and started again after a completed test has been done when the start conditions for the test are met again.

Editing performance tests

To edit a performance test, select the test from the left-hand list. The settings for this test will then be shown in the main view window.

There are a number of standard tests which can be easily selected using the ‘select standard test’ drop-down list.

End of test settings

This area allows the test end conditions to be defined. Either set an end speed, or distance value.

Marking the ‘beep at end test’ box will cause the HD2 to sound a single tone upon test completion.

Mid-Speed settings

Enabling this setting allows a mid-speed to be added to the test – for example ‘0 – 100 – 0’ tests.

When this box is marked, a speed value area will appear as shown below.

Note: Mid-speed is disabled when running speed to distance tests.


Use these two drop down boxes to set the units of measurement used in the tests.
