4K/UHD (12G/6G/3G)

4K/UHD has led to a proliferation of new standards and formats, and these
higher bandwidth signals have brought new challenges with respect to QC
and compliance testing.

4K/UHD (12G/6G/3G) video & physical layer analysis

4K/UHD has led to a proliferation of new standards and formats, with delivery using quad-link 3G, dual link 6G or single link 12G signals. These higher bandwidth signals are more challenging to manage, and physical layer testing (Eye and Jitter) at facilities is especially important in view of the greater cable length sensitivity and unforgiving nature of these high speed interfaces. As 12G-SDI continues to gather momentum for UHD applications, and many customers face a choice between SDI and IP infrastructure, there is a real need for informed and pragmatic decision making influenced by business values.

To address this requirement, PHABRIX has developed a class-leading suite of SDI analysis and stress tools that extend all the way up to UHD 12 Gbit/s that are available as an option for the Qx. Until now it has not been possible to thoroughly evaluate the behavior and performance of 6 and 12 Gbit/s SDI interfaces.
