PHABRIX, a broadcast test & measurement innovator, has announced that Belgium-based, French language broadcaster Notélé has purchased a Qx rasterizer to monitor a wide variety of content, including programming for the deaf and hard-of-hearing. The unit was acquired from TEVIOS, a long term PHABRIX distributor in Belgium, France and Luxembourg.
Notélé is a local TV broadcaster that specializes in French language content and produces a large range of programming including news, sports and culture. For its latest equipment purchase, the company required a multi-faceted rasterizer that included all the advanced monitoring tools they required, plus full operational flexibility when transitioning to next generation workflows.
Arnaud Cresp, Technical Director, Notélé, comments: “We were in the process of developing new facilities for hearing impaired and blind people, and we were needing a tool to monitor the content from audio description, OP47 data, and so on. We were already a very satisfied user of the Sx TAG handheld instrument, so were familiar with the PHABRIX suite. Once we started looking at the various options, we soon found that the Qx supported everything we needed, with lots of opportunities to add additional features and standards support as our technology requirements progress. As with our previous purchase, I am delighted with the level of support they have provided.”
The Qx brings together all the advanced test and measurement tools required for transitioning to the next generation of video formats. Designed for HD/3G/6G/12-SDI and IP ST 2110/2022-7/2022-6 environments, the instrument set includes tools for rapid fault diagnosis, compliance monitoring and product development. The Qx’s core SDI toolset delivers media analysis tools for broadcast operator HD-SDI environments, including picture view, advanced waveform analysis, vectorscope, 32-channel audio metering and ANC status.
Raphaël Meunier, owner of TEVIOS, comments: “When Notélé came to us, it was very clear that they required a powerful rasterizer with a lot of tools built in. As a long-term PHABRIX user, Notélé were highly impressed that the Qx offered all the functionality they required and more.”
