Phabrix unveils new Qx capabilities

Publish date:

Phabrix has revealed the latest IP, HDR, 4K/UHD and SDI-stress toolsets for its flagship Qx Series.

Now with SMPTE 2110 (-10, -20, -30 and -40) with PTP and ST 2022-6 support, the Qx offers a solution for next-generation hybrid IP/SDI environments. New stream and network analysis tools include a Packet Profile Generator (PPG), offering an advanced toolset for stress testing video networks, and Packet Interval Timing (PIT) analysis for rapid diagnosis of issues such as packet congestion.

Key features of the Qx are its fully configurable user interface and remote control capability. The instrument employs VNC technology to deliver up to 16 simultaneous scalable instrument windows remotely with network access to event logs, screenshots and user presets.

The Qx Series’ new SDI-STRESS option provides an advanced toolset for SDI interface stress testing which, together with its fast, automated 12G-SDI physical layer analysis employing RTE (Real-Time Eye) technology, provides a solution to SMPTE compliance verification of 12G/6G/3G/HD-SDI interfaces.

The toolset includes SDI jitter insertion (10Hz to 10MHz, 0.01UI to 16UI), eye amplitude adjustment (+/-10%), pre-emphasis, signal invert and mute features operating with either the video pattern generator with pathological overlay as source or a new PRBS Signal Generator (PRBS7, 9, 15, 23, 31), coupled to a new BERT Analyser tool. A new Pathological EQ/PLL condition detector with real time trigger over GPI out is provided, while the Qx Series also now offers support for Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG), S-Log3 and SR Live, enhancing the visualisation and analysis of 4K/UHD and HD content.
