Dolby bitstream Generator

Order Code: PHSXOBD-G

Available: Now


The PHABRIX Sx Dolby E, Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus bitstream generator option uniquely adds significant Dolby metadata generation features to the Sx range. This is available on the PHABRIX SxA, PHABRIX SxD, PHABRIX SxE and SxTAG hand held instruments.


  • Intelligent metadata viewer with colour coding for legal, illegal and irrelevant values

  • 8 channel audio metering

  • Guard band analysis

  • Unique closed loop testing when linked to generator

  • Logging of CRC errors, guard band timing, common and program metadata

  • Operates with all SD/HD and 3G video standards

The Dolby E generation option provides broadcast engineers with a highly functional set of tools for Dolby E streaming. It is unique in being the world’s first metadata Dolby generator with editable profiles.

With a selection of Dolby E, Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus streams to choose from, engineers can quickly enter and adjust parameters to check broadcast infrastructure.

This option allows the display of Dolby meta data present in a selected audio stream and determines whether the Dolby-E packet is timed correctly on the SDI video stream.

Dolby streams are provided for all program configurations with fixed audio data. Among the tools included in the Dolby E streaming option is the ability to adjust the ‘start of frame’ for Dolby E packets.

The generated Dolby E follows the  video generator reference source. There is also the ability to edit the program configuration and bit depth with fixed audio signal. The PCM stream can be carried on any embedded or AES pair. The option can sets the video line number where the internally generated Dolby E test stream begins. Meta data can be edited by the user and stored in memories.

Purchased in combination with the Dolby E analysis option PHSXOBD-A will allow a closed loop test scenario with both generation and analysis toolsets.

Note: This option does NOT generate Dolby audio
