Rx2000 2U dual screen
Order Code: PHRX2000
Top of the range Rx2000 with two monitoring and control screens complete with HDMI/SDI output make this an ideal instrument for outside broadcast facilities, engineering bays and broadcast manufacturers. Confidence is assured with both video screen and instrumentation available at point of source with simple touch of a button control. The Rx2000 benefits from an angled slim profile, it is lightweight and benefits from very low power consumption. Clever tilt-in-bay mechanical engineering allows the Rx2000 to be seen at various eye levels. Available as SD/HD-SDI chassis and upgraded to 3G-SDI later if required.

As budgets continue to be squeezed in broadcast the Rx range has been designed as a cost effective investment for test and measurement with the quality and reliability established by the PHABRIX brand.
The Rx range allows a flexible approach to configuring test and measurement on a new technological platform designed for longevity. The innovation in Rx technology allows each Rx product to benefit from developments as they arise.
Modular means choice and with that choice is the ability to create the solution that matches each individual broadcast environment requirement.
Adding modules is like adding an independent new instrument. There is no 'overhead' demand on the platform, each module has its own dedicated FPGA allowing independence of function within a connected structure.
The Rx range uses a PHABRIX CPU 'layering' module which sits at the heart of every system. Here signals from each independent instrument on board are processed to provide a variety of instrument displays.
Unhindered by any processing restraints, the layer board provides an output display up to a staggering 1920 x 1080 pixels with perfect scaling via HDMI or SDI. In practice the Rx acts like a test and measurement multi monitor providing scaled instruments over any selected video input.
The layer board also has provision for AES input. Bi/Tri level looping reference is provided as standard. A D26 way connector allows GPI, LTC control and analogue audio.
Dual USB ports can be used for mouse and keyboard control.
TCP/IP Ethernet provides remote control access to the Rx range using any web browser. It is also the method for updating firmware and software via PHABRIX's dedicated server. Simply select and forget for effortless upgrades.
Power is provided via a locking XLR input supporting an external 9-17V DC transformer. The system has an automatic 'last know configuration' fail safe should there be a power outage.
A super quiet fan assembly is temperature controlled to operate in extreme conditions thus reducing any distracting ambient fan noise.
Modules can be inserted into the rail guided bays. Once inserted the Rx checks the identity of the module then seamlessly incorporates it into the system.
The Rx supports SD-SDI and HD-SDI signals as standard with an option to add 3G-SDI.
Over 400 different formats can be analysed or generated by the Rx including Dual-Link and 3G level A and B with 2K.
Each Rx can be enhanced with different modules. Optical support is available using the onboard SFP where applicable. A full range can be viewed in the hardware module section. PHABRIX technology is constantly being added to this list.
Modules include analysis with the addition of eye and jitter physical layer if required. Generator modules offer the full range of industry standard SMPTE signals.
Audio support includes AES, Dolby E, D, D+ and Pulse.
The Rx uses ultra reliable Linux as its operating system providing a robust and stable core. This dedicated solution provides confidence that the Rx will always be available throughout its 24/7 operation.
The Rx range benefits from a 2 year warranty including telephone and email support. Each Rx leaves our UK factory with its own unique list of quality controlled settings which are captured by our manufacturing department. Should the Rx require calibration, these settings are compared with its pre- calibration state to ensure consistency and traceability.
Calibration services are available throughout the PHABRIX worldwide network of distributors.
