Phabrix has been improving its Rx rack mount, with a number of new developments added to its Version 9, which the company will present at next month’s IBC.
Audio developments include a new full dolby decode module with support for Dolby E, Dolby D and Dolby D, as well as making the Rx a significant provider for the testing of Dolby within broadcast infrastructure. PHABRIX’s development path in offering both video and audio T&M support in one combined instrument is shown in its new four channel AES module and enhancement of loudness monitoring to offer 4 simultaneous channels.
PHABRIX has also added new closed caption support per input offering 608/708/WST and OP47. The user interface provides a set up for closed caption display along with the ability to view 608 and 708 side by side through separate input cards. The company has also made resolution improvement to its waveform display. Combined with its 1920×1080 output display, the new waveforms provide detailed response including RGB mode.
The Rx modular rack mount system is available in three chassis types, a 2U version with two integral screens and two rasterisers, the 1U Rx1000 a the demi Rx 500 1U half rack. The rasterised output is available on all three chassis type offering 1920×1080 output. Differing modules are available including analyser, generator, combined analyser/generator, audio AES and Dolby with the Rx2000 and Rx1000 configured with four slots and the Rx500 supporting 2.
At IBC, PHABRIX will be demonstrating the new toolsets and features available on the Rx in the company’s training zone.
