Portable Waveform Monitor

25G ST 2110 and 12G-SDI with Battery Power*


12G SDI and 25G IP Professional Monitoring

“To Go”

FR | NL | DE | IT | PT | KR | JP | CN 

PHABRIX is pleased to present its first example of a traditional ‘Waveform Monitor’ – but with a twist. Inheriting all of the class leading features and flexibility of the QxL Rasterizer the QxP features an integral 3U multitouch LCD screen and an integral V-Mount or G-Mount battery plate, integral mains PSU and 12v external DC input. You now have 12G SDI and 25G ST 2110 compliance monitoring in a portable form factor using industry standard Camera Batteries*.

With its class-leading Waveforms, the QxP is equally at home on-set in SDR or HDR Productions, Grading, Shading, or QC, MCR, Engineering and R&D environments. The user is free to use the integral screen, or plug in an external HDMI monitor and use the flexible tool layout to view up to 16 instruments simultaneously. A rich set of remote access options including NoVNC and the UI as a 2110-20 flow provides all of the ‘headless’ operational flexibility of a conventional Rasterizer.

The QxP includes SMPTE ST 2110, 2022-6 and a wide range of formats as standard. In-field upgrades are available for a rich set of options: UHD/4K, IP-MEAS, HDR, Dolby E decode, PCAP capture, EUHD and extensive AV-ANC test signal generation. Factory-fitted options provide SDI interfaces or RTE™ real-time SDI eye and jitter analysis, with an engineering grade data view and an optional, advanced SDI-STRESS toolset.

For real-time IP workflows the QxP supports simultaneous Generation and Analysis of HD/3G/UHD/EUHD 2110 payloads on generic SFP28/25 GbE interfaces, with ST 2022-7 Seamless IP Protection Switching (SIPS) and independent PTP followers on both media ports for fully-redundant media network operation – all with AMWA NMOS IS-04 and IS-05.

Whether working in SD, HD, UHD, EUHD, SDR, HDR, SDI or IP, conventional or remote production, the QxP combines the user-configurability and advanced tools required for full operational flexibility when transitioning to next generation workflows.

*Batteries not included


3U instrument with integral 1920 x 1200,
7 inch LCD touch screen

The QxP’s integrated 7 Inch multi-touch LCD display adds a new control layer to the Qx Series. Building on the Qx Series’ innovative app based GUI, users are now able to configure and monitor all of their required instrumentation from the front display, up to 16 Instruments can be configured in various sizes. Plug in an external HDMI monitor and you have the same experience as if you were using the QxP as a conventional Rasterizer.

Class leading Waveform Test and Measurement Monitoring

The QxP comes with PHABRIX’s new class leading Waveform Monitoring with the flexibility to provide high quality traces for both SDR and HDR sources.  Combine this with the CIE chart, false color heat map/highlighting, vectorscope, and support for Generation and Analysis of a wide range of SDR and HDR formats in both SDI and ST 2110, the QxP is equally at home in critical Qc, MCR, Grading and Shading Environments

V-mount/G-mount Battery Plate for external battery and portable operation

The QxP is the world’s first portable, 12G-SDI, 25G-ST 2110, combined waveform monitor, generator and analyzer, with support for mains, external DC power and comes with a V-mount or G-mount battery plate as standard, allowing for the unit to be powered by an external camera battery. This makes the QxP ideally suited for On-Set Production, Outside Broadcast, Commissioning, Engineering and R&D environments

12G-SDI Physical Layer Analysis & Stress

The QxP 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.

25G-IP/10G-SDI Audio & Video Generation and Analysis

Generate and analyze a comprehensive set of SDR/HDR, YCbCr/RGB, HD/3G/6G/12G SDI and HD/3G/6G/UHD/EUHD IP Formats. The QxP can simultaneously generate and analyse 1x ST 2110-20 video, 4x ST 2110-30/31 audio with up to 80ch and ST 2110-40 ANC ST 2022-7 flows pairs and provide the GUI as a flow (1 x ST 2110-20 and 1 x 2110-30/31 with 2022-7).  The SDI pattern-set offers up to 32 channels of embedded audio per link or subfield (up to 128 channels on 12G interfaces) and 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


A suite of AMWA NMOS tools that provide flexibility when integrating with an NMOS controller and associate network Topology. Supported protocols: IS-04 v1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 IS-05 1.02, 1.1 and IS-09 PTP domain. Provision of both in-band and out-of-band control topologies with manual, mDNS, DNS-SD and DHCP. Senders and Receivers can be independently configured as single or dual NMOS end points.

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.

DOLBY® E Decoder & Metadata Analyzer

The Dolby E Decoder and Metadata Analyzer option provides a clear and accessible view of the Dolby E metadata present in a selected Dolby E or ED2 audio stream. It also enables you to check the correct timing of Dolby E packets in the audio signal in an SDI or ST 2022-6 broadcast chain. You can check whether the Dolby E is created correctly and transferred transparently by network equipment such as routers, switchers, satellite links, etc.

User-defined Instrument Layout

Out of the box, the QxP offers external media analysis for broadcast operator HD/3G environments via HDMI, 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. 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.
