Cobalt picks Phabrix QxL rasterisersfor IP ST 2110 product development
Cobalt Digital has turned to Phabrix’s QxL rasterisers to support advanced IP ST 2110 product development and testing as part of the company’s newly expanded production capacity.
A long-term customer of Phabrix’s test and measurement solutions during product development and production testing, the four QxL rasterisers in Cobalt Digital’s inventory address the needs of professional broadcast media IP networks in a compact form factor.
The QxL supports both generation and analysis of JT-NM TR-1001-1:2020, ST 2110-20 (video), up to four 2110-30 (PCM) or 2110-31 (AES transport) audio and a 2110-40 ANC media flow, all with 2022-7 Seamless IP Protection Switching (SIPS) together with AMWA NMOS IS-04 discovery and IS-05 device connection management.
Ryan Wallenberg, Vice-President of Engineering at Cobalt Digital, said, “PHABRIX equipment has been a part of our product development and testing processes for many years, and we have always found their products to be versatile, reliable and consistent.
“The remote access capabilities along with APIs, deep analysis features and built-in generators have been especially invaluable to our engineers through the development of successive products. So, it was a logical choice for us to turn to them again for this expansion, with the QxL emerging as the ideal choice — thanks to its significant flexibility and intuitive toolset.”
Phillip Adams, CEO, Phabrix, added, “We have long enjoyed a great relationship with Cobalt Digital, and it’s been brilliant to see them get so much value out of their PHABRIX inventory. It’s pleasing for us that they have now decided to invest in four units of the QxL, a product which has really made a mark on the industry, thanks to its full operational flexibility and support for an easy migration from an SDI to an IP-centric operation.
“It’s great to know that the QxL will now play its part in the production and testing of both existing and future solutions from Cobalt Digital.”
