Rx Series

Advanced Rasterizers for 2K/3G/HD/SD Signal Generation, Analysis & Monitoring

Faster fault diagnosis, ultra-flexible monitoring

3x the choice

Based on the award-winning Sx portable test & measurement range, the rackmounted Rx series of rasterizers delivers advanced 2K/3G/HD/SD signal
generation, analysis and monitoring for faster compliance testing and fault diagnosis of both video and audio signals.

Up to 16 Simultaneous Instruments

Monitoring workflows are optimized with ultra-flexible, user-defined instrument display layouts. Up to 16 instruments can be presented simultaneously, at sizes ranging from full screen down to 1/16 screen. In multi-channel environments, channel identification is simplified with a dedicated window color per channel.



Monitoring configurations can be built to suit individual operators and key applications, with rapid recall of layout presets for fast turnaround of screen layouts eg. Video or Audio focus. Up to 99 presets are available to suit even the largest facility.


To speed fault finding, the Rx Series offers video and audio capture to help diagnose problems. The capture can be triggered automatically when faults are identified by the analyzer, according to user-defined criteria. Monitor and analyze video via a web browser from any location.


Advanced diagnostic tools include up to four simultaneous Real-Time Eye™ and Jitter physical layer analysis instruments plus closed caption, loudness and Dolby® monitoring. This makes the Rx Series ideal for OB trucks, broadcast facilities and video technology manufacturers.


AV Delay measures the audio-video delay through a broadcast workflow. Features include; a realtime update of the differential delay between the video and up to 8 audio channel pairs, plus support for EBU Tech 3305 and LAWO V_line AV Sync test patterns.


With simultaneous signal generation and analysis, the Rx toolset includes a multi-format waveform, vectorscope and video display, plus an ANC toolset offers ANC, Misc, Video and Board status. Data view and VANC/ANC inspector are available as optional toolsets.


The Rx Series offers metering of up to 16 embedded audio channels as well as bitstream generation and analysis of Dolby DE, DD, DD+ and decoding of metadata for Dolby DE, DD and DD+. Loudness and downstream monitoring are also included.
