QxL

The world’s most compact, feature-rich 25G IP ST 2110 rasterizer
VIEW BROCHURE

Addressing the needs of professional broadcast media IP networks in a compact form factor

The QxL inherits all the JT-NM Tested features of the Qx with a common look and feel across both platforms. Out of the box, this 10G/25G IP enabled rasterizer supports JT-NM TR 1001-1:2018, 2110-20 (video), 2110-30 (PCM audio), 2110-31 (AES transport), and 2110-40 ANC media flows all with 2022-7 Seamless IP Protection Switching (SIPS), and independent PTP slaves on both media ports for fully-redundant media network operation.

KEY FEATURES

SUITE OF IP MONITORING TOOLS

IP media interfaces are provided as standard in the QxL, inheriting all the JT-NM Tested features of the Qx. This 10G/25G IP enabled rasterizer supports JT-NM TR 1001-1:2018, 2110-20 (video), 2110-30 (PCM audio), 2110-31 (AES transport), and 2110-40 ANC media flows all with 2022-7 Seamless IP Protection Switching (SIPS), and independent PTP slaves on both media ports for fully-redundant media network operation.

ST 2110 ANALYSIS FEATURE SET

A suite of operator level IP flow health and PTP monitoring is provided with warnings and alarms. For detailed analysis and debug, the new IP-MEAS toolset provides advanced engineering-grade information including four 2022-7 Packet Interval Time (PIT) displays, media port network statistics, real time measurements of Flow to PTP relationships and latency plus real-time measures of 2110-21 Cinst and Vrx.

12G-SDI PHYSICAL LAYER & STRESS

The QxL offers a 12G/6G/3G/HD-SDI physical layer analysis option, including Real-Time Eye technology to instantly highlight any SMPTE compliance issues including eye amplitude, transition times and overshoot. The SDI-STRESS toolset provides both Shorth Mean/Mode, with a histogram overlay and exploration of eye amplitude. PRBS generation and analysis of PRBS-7, 9, 15, 23, 31 allows for deterministic measurement of link Bit Error Rates.

AUDIO AND VIDEO GENERATION

Generate and analyze a set of SDI/IP formats. Moving test patterns offer up to 32 channels of embedded audio per link or subfield (up to 128 channels on 12G interfaces). The toolset provides  core full screen SDI Pathological SDI stress patterns as well as allowing the user to define a combination of SDI stress and conventional generator patterns up to full frame.

DATA VIEW AND ANC INSPECTOR

A sophisticated engineering grade analysis toolset provides easily accessible visualization of the data on an SDI interface and associated ANC packets. A deep SDI data inspection offers full freedom to inspect Active Picture, VANC and HANC. API controls to read back Active Picture Data under automation control are also included.

PRESETS, VNC AND GUI SCREENSHOTS

The QxL interface employs VNC technology to deliver 16 simultaneous instrument windows over a remote network . Multiple display layouts can be saved as presets. This allows users to save bespoke layouts for different operational tasks; useful for rapidly changing between different screen layouts eg. Audio, HDR or IP focus.

USER-DEFINED INSTRUMENT LAYOUT

Out of the box, the Qxl offers media analysis for broadcast operator HD/3G environments, with a flexible user-defined instrument layout displaying up to 16 simultaneous windows, and the ability to rapidly change between bespoke layouts for different operational tasks with user presets.

ANALYSIS AND MONITORING TOOLSET

Picture view, waveform, vectorscope, 32 channel audio metering, detection of Dolby formats, ANC status and payload, on screen display of OP47 and CEA-608 in 708 closed captions and Ancillary Time Code (ATC), and advanced control and logging are all provided as standard.

HDR VISUALIZATION AND ANALYSIS

The QxL’s advanced HDR toolset includes a signal generator, CIE chart, Luma false color heat map/highlighting, waveform monitor and vectorscope. All the main live production SDR/HDR formats are supported: SDR BT.709, BT.2020, plus HDR BT.2100 HLG, PQ and Sony S-Log3 and SR Live. An extensive set of test patterns include BT.2111 HDR color bars for HLG, PQ and SR Live as well as SDR 709 patterns.
