Advanced, Hybrid IP/SDI Toolset
Sx TAG with its SFP, SDI and analog I/O offers incredible versatility in a handheld device. It is ideal for IP, 3G/HD/SD-SDI, optical SDI, HDMI and Analog test & measurement as well as AES eye analysis, for applications demanding true mobility and ease of use.
It provides support for SMPTE ST 2110-20/30/40 encapsulation/decapsulation with ST 2059 PTP, SDP and NMOS as well as SMPTE ST 2022-6 encapsulation/ decapsulation, using 10GE IP SFP+ modules developed by Embrionix.
Sx TAG 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.
HYBRID IP AND SDI
The Sx TAG’S versatile SFP handles 3G/HD/SD-SDI, optical SDI, IP, HDMI and analog composite formats. Comprehensive support is provided for modern broadcast IP systems with encap/decap of ST 2110-20/30/31/40 with IP to SDI gateway, ST 2059 PTP, AMWA NMOS IS-04/IS-05, as well as ST 2022-6.
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 Sx TAG 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. The Sx TAG is shipped with a PHABRIX Padded Carry Case as standard.
ENHANCED REMOTE CONTROL
The Sx TAG 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 Sx TAG 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.
