PHABRIX Releases the Qx and More at IBC

PHABRIX will introduce a powerful new set of UHD test and measurement tools at IBC 2015.

PHABRIX is releasing its Qx UHDTV1 and UHDTV2 combined generator/analyser to the industry in Hall 10 B12. Developed using the very latest FPGA technology, it provides a unique test and measurement solution to the broadcast industry’s latest 4K and 8K trends.

Incorporating the ‘World’s first’ real-time multi-frame rate 12G-SDI physical layer analysis (eye and jitter) tool-set with automatic SMPTE compliance measurements, it provides comprehensive testing for both UHDTV1 and UHDTV2 infrastructures.

The new Qx hardware platform also supports the next generation of both copper and fibre uncompressed SDI interfaces and SMPTE ST 2022-6 over 10GbE for IP based infrastructures. HDR (High Dynamic Range), WCG (Wide Colour Gamut), HFR (High Frame Rate) along with advanced object based audio formats will be provided as the standards develop.

PHABRIX also added features to its highly successful rack mount product range at IBC 2015. V9.03 provides Loudness monitoring and Closed Caption 608/708 monitoring as standard.

The PHABRIX Sx range has additional format support and Dolby levels generator. A new eye and jitter filter and histogram toolset has been added as part of the standard along with a separate jitter instrument. A quite useful VANC/ANC grid display provides instant awareness of the ancillary signal present on the input has been added as a standard feature across the whole new Sx range. The Sx TAG, is PHABRIX’s multi-interface hand held providing analogue, SDI and optical support. It now features EDID display for HDMI SFP’s.
