Advanced Physical Layer Toolset
With advanced SDI physical layer analysis (Eye & Jitter), the SxE is ideal for applications such as video technology manufacturing and live production.
The instant, RTE™ (Real-Time Eye) technology speeds physical layer testing, and delivers automated measurements and logging for key parameters such as: rise time, fall time, delta, overshoot, undershoot and cable length. The Jitter analysis instrument enables an engineer to quickly analyze the nature of jitter present using a graph of jitter versus time.
The SxE also now offers automatic link detection of single links of multi-link 3G and HD based UHD formats.
SxE 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.

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 SxE offers great mobility with a lightweight, rugged aluminium case with integral, high quality screen for instrument display and video monitoring. The generator/ analyzer operates via rechargeable lithium battery for up 2 hours, and can also be powered by the mains to offer flexible operation around facilities.
ENHANCED REMOTE CONTROL
The SxE 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.
MULTI-CHANNEL AUDIO ANALYSIS
The SxE 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.
Cingularity selects PHABRIX Sx for power and portability on sports broadcasts
PHABRIX, a worldwide leader in test and measurement solutions, has supplied three Sx handheld 3G/HD/SD video/audio monitoring instruments and an Rx 2000 rasterizer to Cingularity, the media network provider, for monitoring on location at two upcoming sporting events.
SxE Advanced Physical Layer Analysis
- 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
