placed adjacent to the electronic device to emit electromag
netic signals for interfering With the electronic device, and a
signal collection apparatus collects video signals from the
electronic device. Then, the signal collection apparatus trans

housing 31 is made of metal, a cavity is therein. An absorption
layer 311 is painted on the external surface of the housing 31,
to absorb the electromagnetic signals transmitted to the hous

DETAILED DESCRIPTION
[0015] The light emitter 34 is received in and shielded by
the housing 31 to avoid interference by the electromagnetic
signals. The light emitter 34 is electronically connected to the
camera 32 and the microphone 33. The light emitter 34
receives the collected video and audio signals and emits tWo
corresponding light beams. Respective strengths of the tWo
light beams are changeable according to changes in the video
and audio signal, for example, voltage changes in the video
signal and frequency changes in the audio signal. The optical
?ber 35 is electronically connected betWeen the light emitter
34 and the analyZer 50. The tWo light beams are transmitted
along the optical ?ber 35 after total re?ection. The optical
?ber 35 transmits the collected signals to the analyZer 50,
Which has a higher degree of immunity against electromag
netic interference than the traditional cable used to transmit
electronic signal, so the analyZer 50 is not affected by the
interference to the collected video and audio signal.
[0016] The analyZer 50 includes a light receiver 52 and a

signal processor 54. The light receiver 52 is electronically
connected to the optical ?ber 35, and receives the tWo light
beams and transforms them into electronic signals. The signal
processor 54 is electronically connected to the light receiver
and its degree of immunity against electromagnetic interfer

The signal processor 54 also calculates any distortion of the
reconstituted video and audio signals. For example, the signal

exemplary embodiment. The testing system 100 can be used
[0012]
The testing system 100 includes a signal emitter 10,
a signal collection apparatus 30, and an analyZer 50. The
processor 54 compares the reconstituted video signal and a
signal emitter 10, the signal collection apparatus 30, and the
predetermined standard video signal, to calculate the distor
tion in the reconstituted video signal. The analyZer 50 further
electronic device 200 are all placed in a shielding room (not
labeled) to isolate them against extraneous interference.
[0013] In one exemplary embodiment, the signal emitter 10
is an antenna Which can emit electromagnetic signals of about
80 MHZ-l GHZ, to cause electromagnetic interference in the
electronic device 200. The electromagnetic signals can inter
fere With video signals and audio signals output from the
electronic device 200. For example, When the electronic
device 200 suffers from interference caused by the electro
magnetic signals, the audio and video qualities of the elec
includes a display 56 and a speaker 58 Which are electroni
cally connected to the signal processor 54. The display 56
displays the video signal and the speaker 58 plays the audio
signal, for monitoring by the operator Who is located outside
the shielding room, for example.
[0017] The operation steps of testing system 100 are as
folloWs: ?rst of all, the operator starts the electronic device
200 to output video and audio signals. Secondly, the signal
emitter 10 starts to Work and emits electromagnetic signals
