Phabrix celebrates production of 2000th SxE25 August 2011
Test and measurement equipment specialist Phabrix has marked the manufacture of its 2000th Phabrix SxE combined generator, analyser and monitor by producing a unique carbon fibre-clad model with LED back-lit control surfaces.
The Phabrix SxE – which is capable of testing 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and SD-SDI on a portable platform with eye and jitter measurements – will be on display at next month’s IBC show.
The special carbon fibre SxE is a one-off and was created in three days by Bassam Asman and Adam Bishop at the company’s HQ in Burghclere, UK. It continues the tradition of making each 1000 sales an instrument to remember that saw the showcasing of a 24 carat hold 1000 SxE at last year’s IBC.
Paul Nicholls, head of sales and marketing at Phabrix, commented: “Bassam and Adam created this 2000th SxE purely for its stylistic appearance; however, it is certainly a head-turner and a fully working instrument. Along with the 24 carat gold version, do not expect to find the carbon fibre instrument on the price list soon – they are both one of a kind a bit like the Phabrix SxE itself. All the hand-held products have been universally successful, [but] the Phabrix SxE’s success has been stellar.”
