NBT Equips HD Production Studio With PHABRIX SxE Instruments

National Broadcasting Services of Thailand (NBT) selects PHABRIX SxE instruments for versatile test and measurement.

Headquartered in Bangkok, NBT is a national public television station, operated by The Government Public Relations Department (PRD), a division of the Thai Government.

The SxE devices replace NBT’s legacy SD test and measurement equipment, delivering HD video and audio Generation, Analysis and Monitoring with advanced Physical Layer Analysis.

SxE offers an extensive video toolset, with support for SMPTE compliance testing of over 350 different formats. An extensive array of video and audio instruments includes a signal generator with moving test patterns, a high-performance waveform, and ANC/VANC inspector. The SxE also offers 16 channel audio generation and metering with support for Dolby E, Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital metadata and bitstream analysis. Its 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 and cable length. The Jitter analysis instrument enables quick analysis of the nature of jitter using a graph of jitter versus time.

Mr Kachan Kannika, Director, Engineering Support and Development Bureau at the National Broadcasting Services of Thailand, comments, “We are highly impressed with the functionality, portability and value for money the PHABRIX SxE instruments offer. The units are intuitive and logical for our team to just pick up and use – no training required!”

Phillip Adams, CEO, PHABRIX, adds, “The SxE appeals to broadcast customers worldwide, with over 7000 Sx units now in the field. We are delighted that NBT has selected the SxE for its new HD production studio. The SxE offers NBT advanced diagnostic tools and true portability for reliable and versatile monitoring of their new HD production studio.”
