Extensive Video and Audio Toolset
The SxA offers advanced signal generation, analysis and monitoring capabilities. There’s support for SMPTE compliance testing with over 350 different formats. An extensive array of video and audio tools includes a signal generator with moving test patterns, a high performance waveform, and ANC/VANC inspector. The SxA also offers 16 channel audio generation and metering with support for Dolby® E, Dolby® Digital and Dolby® Digital metadata and bitstream analysis.
The SxA also now offers automatic link detection of single links of multi-link 3G and HD based UHD formats.
SxA KEY FEATURES
EXTENSIVE VIDEO TOOLSET
With simultaneous signal generation and analysis, its built-in core toolset includes a multi-format waveform, vectorscope and video display, plus data view and VANC/ANC inspector. Over 350 formats are supported for compliance monitoring. Signal generation offers 32 test patterns, including pathological.
MULTI-CHANNEL AUDIO ANALYSIS
The SxA features support for 16-channel audio metering and bitstream generation and analysis of Dolby E, Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus. Embed a single external 48kHz synchronous AES stream into the generated video stream, as well as extract embedded audio and export it via the AES output.
AV DELAY GENERATION AND ANALYSIS
AV Delay Generation and Analysis offers an end-to-end solution for the measurement of Audio to Video differential delay through a broadcast system. The tool provides a realtime update of the differential delay between the video content and the selected audio channel pair to measure the propagation (latency) or pipeline delay.
ULTRA PORTABLE, RUGGED DESIGN
The SxA offers great mobility with a lightweight aluminium case with integral, high quality screen for instrument display and video monitoring. The generator/ analyzer operates via rechargeable battery for up 2 hours, and can also be powered by the mains to offer flexible operation.
ENHANCED REMOTE CONTROL
The SxA features a TCP/IP interface for remote control, automated testing, engineering support and fault analysis. Comprehensive status logging with custom reports, together with instrument picture capture to simplify fault finding is also included.
- The Log ANC Status menu allows customization of which ANC packets to log for changes in status (e.g. Present, Checksum Error, Missing, Parity Error)
- Logging of Dolby and AES Status as well as device system errors
- Control of logging duration
