PHABRIX, a worldwide leader in test and measurement solutions will demonstrate the latest features on its Qx Series of hybrid IP/SDI, 4K/UHD and HDR/WCG rasterizers, Rx rasterizers for multi-channel monitoring and renowned Sx Series of handheld instruments at Inter BEE 2019. Leader Instruments will be demonstrating the full PHABRIX product range on booth #7205. PHABRIX will also be present on Ideal Systems’ booth #7411, Musashi Co Ltd’s booth #8312, DIGIcas’ booth #4206 and with Paltek.
Qx Series – Advanced rasterizers for hybrid IP/SDI ST 2110 and ST 2022-7 analysis and monitoring
PHABRIX will show the latest ST 2110 developments to its flagship Qx Series, offering the latest hybrid IP/SDI test and measurement tools. The Qx family (Qx 10G IP and QxL 25G IP) offers ST 2110 (-20, -30, -31, -40), two-port ST 2059 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) and ST 2022-7 seamless protection. It provides the simultaneous monitoring of 1 video, 2 audio and 1 ANC data flow in up to 16 active and scalable windows. The two audio flows each support up to 10 channels at 1ms and up to 80 channels at 125us packet time with either PCM or AES3 Transport. The core feature set also includes operator status information for PTP, 2022-7 seamless reconstruction and the timing relationship of flows to PTP.
The new Qx ST 2110 advanced engineering IP measurement features include the measurement of ST 2110-21 network compatibility and virtual receiver buffer models, advanced PTP to Flow timing and latency measurements, as well as Inter-Packet Arrival Times for all flows that contribute to the ST 2022-7 seamless reconstruction.
The new TR-1001-1 toolset available on the Qx rasterizer provides support for AMWA NMOS IS-04 Discovery and Registration and IS-05 Connection Management with DHCP, DNS Service Discovery, LLDP, SDP and PTP System Resource.
Sx TAG – Portable hybrid IP/SDI test and measurement
PHABRIX’s handheld Sx TAG provides support for SMPTE 2110 (-20, -30, -40) encapsulation and decapsulation with ST 2059 PTP. Its new features include SDI to IP and IP to SDI gateways for both ST 2110 and ST 2022-6 as well as the ability to generate an analog reference output slaved to the ST 2059 PTP or 2022-6 IP input.
Qx Series – Advanced SDI interface stress testing
PHABRIX will also be demonstrating the Qx Series’ new SDI-STRESS option, providing an advanced toolset for SDI interface stress testing. Together with its fast, automated 12G-SDI physical layer analysis employing RTE™ (Real-Time Eye) technology, SDI-STRESS provides a world-class solution to SMPTE compliance verification of 12G/4x3G/2x6G/6G/3G/HD-SDI interfaces. The SDI physical layer toolset now includes indication of DC offset, rise/fall overshoot, full and windowed eye amplitude histograms with Peak or Shorth Mean measurements, jitter amplitude histograms, SDI jitter insertion (10Hz to 10MHz, 0.01UI up to 128UI pk-pk), transmitter eye amplitude adjustment (+/-15%), risetime, pre-emphasis, signal invert and mute controls 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 Analyzer tool, all under REST API control. Test results can be transferred to USB memory stick using the new USB file manager. In addition, the proposed SMPTE pathological test pattern for SDI rates up to 12Gbit/s is provided operating in conjunction with a new Pathological EQ/PLL condition detector with real time trigger over GPI out.
Qx Series – Broadcast QC
The Qx Rasterizer family now provides on-screen display of ANC Timecode followed by SCTE 104 triggers. Accurate display of dual language support of OP47 and 608 in 708 Closed Captions is provided using two picture windows. AFD and Safe Area graticule and window will be provided as standard.
Sx Series and Rx Series – AV Delay Generation and Analysis
AV Delay Generation and Analysis, a new option available on all PHABRIX’s handheld Sx instruments and the Rx Rasterizer, offers an end-to-end solution for the measurement of audio to video differential delay through a broadcast system. The AV Delay Generator produces an adapted EBU Tech 3305 AV Sync ‘clapperboard’ Test Pattern and is compatible with third party AV delay analyzers including the LAWO V_pro8. The Rx is capable of simultaneously analyzing up to 16 channels of audio. The handheld Sx range can analyze 2 channels of audio and the SxA, SxE and Sx TAG can also be used to measure up to 1 second of overall video or audio latency/delay.
