PHABRIX highlights SMPTE ST 2110 interoperability, new HDR, 4K/UHD and SDI Stress toolsets and a 25G future at IBC 2018

PHABRIX, a worldwide leader in test and measurement solutions will demonstrate its latest IP, HDR, 4K/UHD and SDI-stress toolsets for its flagship Qx Series as well as multiple ST 2110 interoperability demonstrations with some of the industry’s leading vendors on booth 10.B12, at IBC 2018.

Hybrid IP/SDI generation, analysis and monitoring for SMPTE 2110/2022-6 workflows
Now with SMPTE 2110 (-10, -20, -30 and -40) with PTP and ST 2022-6 support, the Qx offers an unbeatable solution for next-generation hybrid IP/SDI environments. New stream and network analysis tools include a Packet Profile Generator (PPG), offering an advanced toolset for stress testing video networks, and Packet Interval Timing (PIT) analysis for rapid diagnosis of issues such as packet congestion. On booth 10.B12, PHABRIX will be showcasing a series of IP interoperability demonstrations featuring its Qx rasterizer and handheld Sx TAG together with technology from Arista, Mellanox, Nevion and Trilogy a Clear-Com Company.

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.

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/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.

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.

“Showcasing how our solutions work seamlessly with other leading vendors in the industry who are also championing IP, will give visitors a broader understanding on how to tackle the transition to an IP workflow”, said Phillip Adams, Managing Director, PHABRIX. “We’re committed to providing a full suite of products that support all necessary interfaces, including 25G, as today’s technology evolves – talk to us at IBC if you’re interested to learn more!”

PHABRIX’s Qx and Sx TAG IP will also feature in the IP Showcase, rooms E106 and E107 at the RAI Amsterdam.
