AT BVE 2016, PHABRIX presented its new Rx rackmount series, the V9.04, as well as the Qx for UHDTV1/4K and UHDTV2/8K test and measurement.
V9.04 adds combined video and audio toolset to the extensive in picture instruments of the rackmount designed for engineering bay, QC and OB environments.
The Rx was presented in three chassis types, the 2U Rx 2000 with dual integrated screens and the 1U Rx 1000 and the half rack 1U Rx 500 .It also possesses the ability to display up to 20 instruments simultaneously on each of the 4 channel inputs.
PHABRIX's video analysis and generator toolsets have also seen significant additions. The on-board generator now provides direct system timing adjustment.
The Sx range hand held was also on display. The PHABRIX SxE, has on-board eye and jitter toolsets with a multi format generator incorporated within the analyser, as well as monitoring toolsets with full physical layer analysis.
The TAG with its SDI and analogue toolsets and fibre optic support has found a new following from many pro video engineers and has been further enhanced for both MSA and non MSA SFP support. The latest addition to the SFP’s supported is a useful HDMI EDID display.
The PHABRIX Qx UHDTV1/4K and UHDTV2/8K combined generator/analyser, developed using the latest FPGA technology, offers a solution to the broadcast industry’s latest trend – 4K and 8K.
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 testing for both UHDTV1 and UHDTV2 infrastructures.
