PHABRIX® PHQX01(E) 12G-SDI Rasterizer

The Qx range brings together all the advanced Test & Measurement tools required for transitioning to the next generation of video formats. The instrument set includes tools for rapid fault diagnosis, compliance monitoring, and product development.

The top of the range Qx 12G is designed for next generation, hybrid IP/SDI environments using 4K/UHD (12G/6G/3G-SDI) and HD-SDI plus SMPTE 2110 with NMOS* and 2022-6. The high-performance Qx 12G offers 4K/UHD-SDI generation, analysis and video/audio monitoring as standard. It’s available with ultra-responsive, 12G/6G/3G/HD RTE™ (Real-time Eye) physical layer testing, and can be upgraded to offer HDR instruments plus advanced IP traffic analysis and stress testing. An advanced 12G-STRESS option is available for stress testing and evaluation of SDI interfaces up to 12G.

 

FAST, AUTOMATED 12G PHYSICAL LAYER ANALYSIS

Qx offers the fastest 12G-SDI physical layer testing, with its RTE™ (Real-time Eye) technology instantly highlighting any SMPTE compliance issues, including eye under/overshoot. Additional 12G/6G/3G/HD-SDI physical layer tools include Jitter analysis with monitoring across five specified frequency bands, as well as UHD/HD pathological test patterns. Built-in automation control allows testing to be performed faster, more reliably and at a lower cost.

An advanced 12G-STRESS option is available for stress testing and evaluation of SDI interfaces up to 12Gbit/s.

 

HYBRID SDI/IP

The introduction of 4K/UHD, HDR/WCG and IP has led to a proliferation of new standards and formats. With the Qx platform you can operate in next-generation Hybrid IP/SDI environments that require 4K/UHD (12G/6G/3G-SDI) and HD-SDI as well as SMPTE ST 2110 with 2022-7*, NMOS* and ST 2022-6 formats. The high-performance Qx 12G offers 4K/UHD-SDI generation, analysis and video/audio monitoring as standard. The IP Toolset provides tools for generation and analysis of IP video and audio traffic and IP Packet Interval Timing.

 

ADVANCED HDR VISUALIZATION AND ANALYSIS TOOLSET

The Qx’s comprehensive High Dynamic Range and Wide Color Gamut toolset offer new instruments to enhance the visualization and analysis of 4K/UHD and HD-SDI content to speed workflows. The HDR/WCG tools include a signal generator, CIE chart, luminance heat-map, vectorscope and waveform, all supporting BT. 2100 HLG, PQ and Sony S-Log3 and S-Log3 (HDR Live).
