PHABRIX highlights hybrid IP/SDI, HDR/WCG and 4K/UHD test and measurement solutions at BVE 2019

Mon 11, 02 2019

Newbury, UK – 11 February 2019:PHABRIX, a worldwide leader in test and measurement solutions, will demonstrate its full range of hybrid IP/SDI, 4K/UHD, HDR/WCG and HD ready test and measurement solutions on Stand G12 at BVE 2019, held at ExCeL London from 26-28 February 2019.

Hybrid IP/SDI generation, analysis and monitoring for SMPTE 2110/2022-7 workflows

Now with SMPTE 2110 (-20, -30 and -40) and ST 2059 (PTP) and ST 2022-7 support, PHABRIX’s flagship Qx Rasterizer and handheld Sx TAG offer the latest hybrid IP/SDI test and measurement tools required for next generation formats. The Qx IP supports one video, one ANC/Data and two audio flows, with support for up to 16 channel audio at 1ms and 125us. The Qx IP, together with the portable Sx TAG, offers an unbeatable solution for hybrid IP/SDI environments.

Advanced SDI interface stress testing

The Qx Series’ new SDI-STRESS option provides an advanced toolset for SDI interface stress testing which, together with its fast, automated 12G-SDI physical layer analysis employing RTE™ (Real-Time Eye) technology, provides a world-class solution to SMPTE compliance verification of 12G/4x3G/2x6G/6G/3G/HD-SDI interfaces. The toolset includes SDI jitter insertion (10Hz to 10MHz, 0.01UI to 16UI), eye amplitude adjustment (+/-10%), pre-emphasis, signal invert and mute features operating with either the video pattern generator with pathological overlay as source or a new PRBS Signal Generator (PRBS7, 9, 15, 23, 31), coupled to a new BERT Analyser tool. In addition, a new Pathological EQ/PLL condition detector with real time trigger over GPI out is provided.

Fully flexible user interface

A key feature of the Qx is its innovative, fully configurable user interface, allowing users to adapt the display for their preferred working practice. It can also be controlled remotely, offering analysis, monitoring and automated testing from any location. The instrument employs VNC technology to deliver up to 16 simultaneous scalable instrument windows remotely with network access to event logs, screenshots and user presets.

Enhanced HDR Toolset

Adding to its already comprehensive PQ HDR toolset, the Qx Series also now offers support for Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG), S-Log3 and SR Live, enhancing the visualization and analysis of 4K/UHD and HD content.

AV Delay Generation & Analysis

Also on show at BVE, PHABRIX’s renowned handheld instrument, the Sx Series, now offers a brand new Audio/Video Delay option, which combines a programmable AV test signal generator with an automatic AV delay analyzer, providing the ability to track audio to video timing within a signal chain.

“PHABRIX’s future-proofed test and measurement solutions are designed to support users at every stage of the transition to IP, UHD and HDR,” said Phillip Adams, Managing Director, PHABRIX. “We’re committed to providing a full suite of products that support all necessary interfaces, as today’s technology evolves, and look forward to showcasing them at BVE 2019.”
