PHABRIX is a world leader in broadcast test and measurement, with a full range of portable and rackmount systems for rapid fault diagnosis, compliance monitoring, and product development. Technology strengths include IP video stream generation and analysis, advanced HDR/WCG visualization, and ultra-responsive physical layer analysis.
Qx IP, with ST 2110 (-10/20/30/40) & PTP and ST 2022-7 support is the world’s first fully flexible rasterizer for IP analysis, generation and monitoring. The Qx IP’s features include multiple Packet Interval Timing (PIT) histograms for monitoring signal flows, and 2022-7 'hitless' flow reconstruction.
The Qx 12G offers an advanced toolset for SDI interface stress testing. Combined 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/6G/3G/HD-SDI interfaces. The toolset includes control over eye amplitude (+/-10%), pre-emphasis, signal polarity, output mute, and scrambler. These operate with the video pattern generator with controls for the overlay of SDI-pathological signals and the insertion of SDI jitter (10Hz to 10MHz) into the source. The stress suite also includes a PRBS Signal Generator (PRBS7, 9, 15, 23, 31), coupled to a built-in BERT Analyser tool for interface Bit Error Rate testing. In addition, a Pathological EQ/PLL condition detector with real time trigger over GPI out is provided.
Based on the award-winning Sx portable test & measurement range, the rackmounted Rx series of rasterizers delivers advanced 2K/3G/HD/SD signal generation, analysis and monitoring for faster compliance testing and fault diagnosis of both video and audio signals.
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. Other key capabilities include Dolby® E, Dolby® Digital and Dolby® Digital Plus bitstream analysis, as well as video status logging, and remote operation over Ethernet.
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. Useful hybrid IP/SDI features include SDI to IP and IP to SDI gateways for both ST 2110-20/30/40 and ST 2022-6 as well as the ability to generate an analog reference ouput slaved to the ST 2059 PTP or 2022-6 IP input.
