Norwegian broadcaster TV 2 has selected PHABRIX’s QxL rasteriser to provide 25G UHD IP ST 2110 video and audio generation, analysis and monitoring at its headquarters in Bergen.
The rasteriser is designed to meet the requirements of 10GbE/25GbE IP workflows suitable for professional broadcast. It supports generation and analysis of JT-NM TR 1001-1:2018, 2110-20 (video), 2110-30 (PCM audio), 2110-31 (AES audio), and 2110-40 (ANC) media flows, all with 2022-7 Seamless IP Protection Switching (SIPS), and independent PTP slaves on each media port for fully-redundant media network operation.
According to PHABRIX, the QxL is one of the first devices of its type for which SDI is an option – not part of the core.
Svein Henning Skaga (pictured), solutions architect, TV 2 Norway, said, “We are highly impressed with the QxL’s fully-flexible architecture, covering all our UHD signal monitoring and generation requirements in both 12G-SDI and 25G IP ST 2110. We will be using the QxL within our test network, but also on UHD sports productions.”
