On AVBB Booth (N671), PHABRIX Will Showcase Award-Winning Qx Range and Extended IP Support for Sx TAG Portable

PHABRIX today announced that it will highlight SMPTE ST 2110 IP and High Dynamic Range (HDR) test solutions at 2017 NAB Show New York (Oct. 18-19) in booth N671 with AVBB, its master distributor in the Americas. PHABRIX will showcase its hybrid IP/SDI Qx rackmount and Sx portable ranges, as well as the advanced Rx line.

“By offering media analysis and monitoring for both IP and SDI environments, we’re supporting broadcasters as they transition from SDI and hybrid SDI/IP operations to the fully IP-based infrastructure and workflows of the future,” said Neil Sharpe, head of marketing at PHABRIX. “IP and HDR have been at the heart of PHABRIX’s product development, and we’re looking forward to showcasing the latest capabilities at NAB Show New York.”

The Qx range offers IP, 4K/UHD, and HDR/wide colour gamut (WCG) generation, analysis, and video/audio monitoring. It provides fast access to all the advanced, hybrid IP/SDI instruments required for transitioning to the next generation of video formats. The high-performance IP toolset is designed for SMPTE ST 2110 and ST 2022-6, and includes packet interval timing (PIT) analysis for rapid diagnosis of packet congestion, packet loss, and jitter. There’s also a unique packet profile generator (signal generator), which can create different packet interval profiles to simulate IP congestion conditions.

PHABRIX is enhancing the IP support of its Sx TAG portable generator and analyser to include SMPTE ST 2110 as well as 2022-6 decapsulation/encapsulation, in addition to 3G/HD/SD-SDI, optical SDI, HDMI, and analogue. Designed for rapid fault-finding and compliance testing in broadcast systems, the Sx TAG can be used for applications demanding mobility, as well as for operation in remote locations with monitoring over a network.

Its rich toolset includes a multiformat waveform and vectorscope, and users can perform video monitoring using a 16:9 screen plus 16-channel audio monitoring. An intuitive, colour-coded interface speeds testing workflows, and operation with mains or battery power provides versatility on the move.

PHABRIX will also feature the advanced Rx 2000 rackmounted analyser/generator, which offers rapid fault diagnosis with video capture and remote access, as well as ultra-flexible layouts with up to 16 instruments per monitor.
