Friday 23rd March 2018 – PHABRIX, a worldwide leader in test and measurement solutions will be demonstrating its full range of IP, UHD and HDR solutions at NAB 2018 including its latest Qx series, portable Sx range and rack-mounted Rx series.
Phillip Adams, Managing Director at PHABRIX commented, “As a test and measurement manufacturer, we are seeing three major changes in the broadcast industry; the transition from HD to UHD, SDR to HDR and the paradigm shift from SDI interfaces to IP interfaces. Our customers are relying on us to deliver agile and future-ready test and measurement solutions to support their needs today as well as the challenges they will face tomorrow.”
Qx Series – IP/12G-SDI, 4K/UHD and HDR Generation, Analysis and Monitoring
PHABRIX’s top of the range Qx Series will be on show at NAB offering the latest hybrid IP/SDI test and measurement tools required for the transition to the next generation of video formats. The top of the range Qx IP now offers SMPTE 2110* with PTP and 2022-6 support.
The Qx Series’ new 12G-SDI STRESS option will be making its NAB show debut, providing an advanced toolset for SDI interface stress testing. Together with the Qx Series’ fast, automated 12G-SDI physical layer analysis with RTE™ (Real-Time Eye) technology, provides a world-class solution to SMPTE compliance verification.
Adding to its already comprehensive PQ HDR toolset, the Qx Series now offers support for Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) and S-log3, enhancing the visualization and analysis of 4K/UHD and HD content. The series’ new remote interface will also be demonstrated, employing VNC technology to deliver 16 simultaneous scalable instrument windows backed by a new powerful preset mechanism.
Sx Series: Portable generators/analyzers for hybrid IP/SDI and physical layer testing
Now including support for the latest SMPTE ST 2110* and SMPTE 2022-6 decapsulation/encapsulation, PHABRIX’s Sx TAG is the go-to handheld test and measurement instrument for the world’s most advanced broadcasters and broadcast manufacturers.
Designed for rapid fault-finding and compliance testing in IP, 3G/HD/SD-SDI, optical SDI and analog broadcast workflows, the Sx TAG’s advanced toolset also includes multi-format waveform and vectorscope monitors. With an inbuilt 16:9 screen and speakers, users can perform video and audio generation and analysis in remote locations.
PHABRIX will also be demonstrating its SxE 3G/HD/SD generation, analysis and monitoring solution with advanced physical layer analysis.
Rx Series: Rack-mounted signal generation, analysis and monitoring (2K/3G/HD/SD)
Ideal for broadcast QC in the studio, MCR or live production truck, PHABRIX’s rack-mounted Rx Series delivers 2K/3G/HD/SD signal generation, analysis and monitoring for faster compliance testing and fault diagnosis of video and audio. It’s ultra-flexible, user-defined instrument layout can present up to 16 instruments simultaneously, ranging from full screen to 1/16 screen. PHABRIX will be demonstrating the Rx’s advanced diagnostics tools at NAB, including RTE™ (Real-Time Eye) and jitter physical layer analysis instruments, plus closed caption, loudness and Dolby® monitoring.
