Qx IP

Qx IP: IP, 3G-SDI + HDR generation, analysis & monitoring.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
The affordable, Qx IP delivers all the key tools for hybrid IP, 3G-SDI and HDR broadcast environments, and it's ideal for infrastructure compliance testing and content monitoring.
 
Single, hybrid device for IP, 3G/HD & HDR
With Qx IP, you no longer need multiple test & measurement devices for SMPTE 2022-6 IP, SDI and HDR / WCG. A single Qx IP can perform signal generation, analysis and monitoring across all these important formats. TR03, AES67 and PTP (ST 2059-2), as defined in the draft SMPTE 2110 specification, will be supported with upcoming software releases.
 
Ideal for live production
Highly compact and ultra-quiet, Qx IP weighs less than 2Kg and uses just 50W. This makes it well suited to live production applications. A flexible, easy to use control interface provides unlimited instrument layering, and is designed for fast moving operation. For challenging environments, Qx IP can be fitted with a replaceable air filter.

Simulation


PHABRIX Rx simulation

The Rx simulator shows a simulation of the Rx2000 product. If you have a monitor of 1920 x 1080 resolution or greater, then you will be able to select the external LCD and arrange the window layout which would be visible on an external HDMI monitor on the Rx range.

Rx Simulator 09.04.14365 (18th January 2017): Please contact PHABRIX sales or your local sales partner if based outside of the UK for more information on the PHABRIX Rx range and to book a demonstration.
