In an attempt to support hybrid IP/SDI analysis and monitoring workflows, Phabrix will be launching a v3.0 software release of its Qx rasteriser. The enhancements include support for SMPTE ST 2110-20/-30/-31/-40, ST 2059 Precision Time Protocol (PTP), and two-port ST 2022-7 protection, thus providing monitoring of one video, two audio, and one ANC data flow in up to 16 active and scalable windows.
The Qx rasteriser can also be paired with Phabrix’s handheld Sx TAG for deployments in hybrid IP/SDI environments.
Sx TAG provides support for ST 2110-20/-30/-40 encapsulation and decapsulation with ST 2059 PTP. Other new features include SDI to IP and IP to SDI gateways for both ST 2110 and ST 2022-6 as well as the ability to generate an analogue reference output to the ST 2059 PTP or ST 2022-6 IP input.
The company will also be demonstrating the Qx Series’ new SDI-STRESS option, proving an advanced toolset for SDI interface stress testing. Equipped with 12G-SDI physical layer analysis powered by Real-Time Eye (RTE) technology, SDI-STRESS provides a solution to SMPTE compliance verification of 12G/4x3G/2x6G/6G/3G/HD-SDI interfaces.
The toolset includes full and windowed eye amplitude histograms with peak or mean measurement of eye amplitude, SDI jitter insertion, eye amplitude adjustment, rise time, pre-emphasis, signal invert and mute controls operating with either the video pattern generator with pathological overlay as source or a new pseudorandom binary sequence (PRBS) signal generation, coupled to a new bit error rate testing (BERT) analyser tool.
