Thatcham, UK – 5 March 2024: Test & measurement innovator, PHABRIX, has announced plans to exhibit its full suite of instruments at NAB 2024, including the Qx, Rx and Sx Series. PHABRIX and parent company Leader Electronics together will be demonstrating test and measurement solutions suitable for all broadcast and media applications, whether on-set, studio production, post-production, broadcast QC, or for in-house video technology manufacturing facilities. One of the industry’s most important annual gatherings, the NAB Show takes place this year from 13-17 April at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Showcasing on booth C5521 will be a host of new features for the Qx Series of rasterizers and waveform monitors – comprising the Qx, QxL and QxP models. The series now supports the detection and analysis of SMPTE Full Range video standards. Enabling customers to focus on maximizing the quality of their content, the update means that the Qx Series can now generate video standards in Full Range, Full Protected (FP) Range or Narrow Range (NR) in IP ST-2110, and either Full Range (FR) or Narrow Range (NR) in IP ST 2022-6 and SDI. In addition, with the Qx Series’ analyzer, it is now possible to verify color content regardless of the specific video format being used.

Other features of the Qx Series that will be highlighted at NAB 2024 include:
• An advanced EUHD option with the QxL rasterizer and QxP portable waveform monitor that supports UHD and 4K HFR (High Frame Rate) extended video formats in ST 2110 – workflows that are now increasingly popular for video walls and other applications involving the use of advanced media processing.
• The addition of legacy SD analysis ensures a full range of support from SD-HD-UHD-EUHD formats with no need to change equipment.

Aside from the Qx Series, PHABRIX will also showcase new features to its Rx Series and renowned Sx Series to NAB Show visitors:
• The addition of Enhanced Gamut Monitoring to the Rx Series of advanced rasterizers for 2K/3G/HD/SD signal generation, analysis and monitoring, following on from the introduction of a new 6-bar gamut toolset in 2023.
• The Sx Series of handheld instruments, including the Sx TAG hybrid IP/SDI and analog generation, analysis and video/audio monitoring device.

Martin Mulligan, CEO, PHABRIX, comments: “NAB 2023 was a really great event for us, with huge amounts of interest in our T&M solutions for SDI and IP workflows, so we are delighted to be back at the show again this year. With broadcast & media companies delivering greater amounts of content, via more platforms and formats than ever before, it’s vital that they can rapidly analyze and diagnose faults in time-critical situations. The PHABRIX range – led by the Qx, Rx and Sx series – provides them with all of these capabilities, and as the latest software update demonstrates we always strive to be one step ahead in adding the new features our customers will require next.”
