Richardson, TX, October 13, 2017– AudioVideo BrandBuilder Corporation has selected the NAB New York Show as the event to introduce PHABRIX’s latest developments in the Qx Series for 12G, IP, and HDR signals as well as in their Sx TAG model.

PHABRIX officially introduced the Qx Series in the US as a T&M solution to 12G signals during this same event a year ago.  Then, at the NAB show in Las Vegas, support for SMPTE 2022-6 IP signals was added to the functionality of the series.  Now at this year’s NAB New York trade show, the British manufacturer will highlight SMPTE 2110 IP and HDR support for the Qx Series as part of their constant improvements and product developments the company is committed.

“By offering media analysis and monitoring for both IP and SDI environments, we’re supporting broadcasters as they transition from SDI and hybrid SDI/IP operations to the fully IP-based infrastructure and workflows of the future,” said Neil Sharpe, head of marketing at PHABRIX. “IP and HDR have been at the heart of PHABRIX’s product development, and we’re looking forward to showcasing the latest capabilities at the NAB Show in New York.”

The Qx range offers IP, 4K/UHD, and HDR/Wide Color Gamut (WCG) generation, analysis, and video/audio monitoring.  It provides fast access to all the advanced, hybrid IP/SDI instruments required for transitioning to the next generation of video formats. The high-performance IP toolset is designed for SMPTE 2110 and SMPTE 2022-6, and includes packet interval timing (PIT) analysis for rapid diagnosis of packet congestion, packet loss, and jitter. There’s also a unique packet profile generator (signal generator), which can create different packet interval profiles to simulate IP congestion conditions.

In addition, PHABRIX is enhancing the IP support of its Sx TAG portable generator and analyzer to include SMPTE 2110 as well as 2022-6 decapsulation/encapsulation.  Designed for rapid fault-finding and compliance testing in broadcast systems, the Sx TAG can be used for applications demanding mobility, as well as for operation in remote locations with monitoring over a network.

Its rich toolset includes a multiformat waveform and vectorscope, and users can perform video monitoring using a 16:9 screen plus 16-channel audio monitoring. An intuitive, color-coded interface speeds testing workflows, and operation with mains or battery power provides versatility on the move.

“We believe PHABRIX is moving on the right path by offering products that are in sync with the developments happening in the industry.  PHABRIX is the only manufacturer in the world that has, not one but, two instruments focused on the latest SMPTE standards for IP signals – ST 2110 and ST 2022-6.  They will analyze packet congestion and packet loss, among other characteristics.  And their price points are extremely reasonable considering all of the functionalities these products offer”, commented Kevin Dunsheath, Vice President of AVBB.

AudioVideo BrandBuilder Corporation will be located in Level 3, Hall 3B, space # N671 at the
Javits Convention Center in New York City  |  October 18-19, 2017
