PHABRIX Provides Unique 4K/8K Infrastructure Test Set

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, the PHABRIX Qx hardware platform provides comprehensive testing for both UHDTV1 and UHDTV2 infrastructures.

The new PHABRIX Qx hardware platform also supports the next generation of both copper and fiber uncompressed SDI interfaces and importantly for those interested in IP, 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.

The PHABRIX Qx UHDTV1 and UHDTV2 combined generator/analyzer was developed using the very latest field-programmable gate arrray (FPGA) technology. It incorporates 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. SMPTE ST 2022-6 is supported over 10GbE for IP based infrastructures.

Timing is important with multi-link SDI interfaces and the Qx provides comprehensive tools operating across a wide range of standards. The Qx is controlled using an intuitive user interface consisting of mouse, keyboard and 1920x1080 display of a sophisticated instrument tool set for ultra high definition.

The new PHABRIX Qx hardware platform also supports the next generation of both copper and fiber uncompressed SDI interfaces.
