Phabrix Qx Series

Advanced Rasterizers for Hybrid IP/SDI, 4K/UHD, HDR/WCG Generation, Analysis & Monitoring

The Qx range brings together all the advanced Test & Measurement tools required for transitioning to the next generation of video formats. Designed for HD/3G/6G/12G-SDI and IP ST 2110/2022-7/2022-6 environments, the instrument set includes tools for rapid fault diagnosis, compliance monitoring and product development.

The Qx rasterizer offers media analysis for broadcast operator HD-SDI environments, with picture view, waveform analyzer, vectorscope, 32 channel audio metering and ANC status as standard. The fully flexible architecture offers upgrades for UHD/4K-SDI, SMPTE 2110 and ST 2022-6, HDR, Audio and Video generation as well as engineering grade data view and ANC packet inspection. A factory hardware upgrade option provides real time SDI Eye (Real-Time Eye) and jitter analysis with the further option of a highly advanced SDI-Stress toolset.

Fast, automated 12G physical layer analysis

The Qx optional Physical layer Toolset offers the fastest 12G/6G/3G/HD-SDI physical layer testing, with its RTE™ (Real-Time Eye) Technology instantly highlighting any SMPTE compliance issues including eye amplitude, transition times and under/overshoot. Built in automation control allows testing to be performed faster, more reliably and at lower cost.

Hybrid IP/SDI

With the Qx platform you can operate in next-generation Hybrid IP/SDI environments that require 4K/UHD (12G/6G/3G-SDI), HD-SDI as well as SMPTE ST 2110, ST 2022-7, ST 2059 (PTP), AMWA NMOS* and ST 2022- 6 formats. Using standard industry SFPs, the core IP toolset provides the user with all of the necessary functionality to request and connect to IP encapsulated media flows and provide the necessary operator confidence status monitoring in an intuitive and accessible manner.

Advanced HDR visualization & analysis toolset

The Qx’s comprehensive High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut (WCG) toolset offers instruments to enhance the visualization and analysis of 4K/UHD and HD content to speed workflows. The HDR/WCG tools include a signal generator, CIE chart, Luma false color highlighting or “heat map”, vectorscope and waveform, all supporting Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) BT.709, BT.2020 as well as HDR BT.2100 HLG, BT.2100 PQ and Sony S-Log3 and SR Live. The heat-map provides 7 simultaneous programmable color overlay bands with presets for HDR and SDR ranges (including SR live), plus a user custom preset.
