Leader/Phabrix offer hybrid way to do SDI and IP test & measurement
In a combined product display focusing on their respective strengths, Leader Instruments Corporation and Phabrix will bring hybrid approaches to SDI and IP test and measurement to the 2023 NAB Show.
The companies maintain that their hybrid approaches will provide the versatility broadcasters need to transition from SDI to IP, HD to Ultra HD (UHD), standard dynamic range (SDR) to high dynamic range (HDR), onsite and cloud-connected virtual remote production, and volumetric production.
Leader offers a complete IP solution ranging from its LT4610 and LT4611 PTP generators plus the ZEN Series LV5600 true hybrid IP/SDI waveform monitor and the LV7600 equivalent rasteriser, to the LVB440 IP traffic analyser.
The LV5600 provides the same monitoring and measurement resources irrespective of whether the video signal is IP or SDI. It includes the ability to display and compare IP and SDI video sources simultaneously, offering engineering staff the tools they need to monitor and analyse IP network activity.
At booth C4920, the Leader LV5350 and LV5300A battery-operable waveform monitors will be demonstrated alongside the PHABRIX Sx TAG, QxL and QxP. The Phabrix QxP inherits the toolset and flexible architecture of the QxL rasteriser but in a 3U form factor with a high-contrast 1920 x 1200 7-inch multi-touch LCD screen and a V-Mount or G-Mount battery plate.
For real-time IP production, the QxP provides support for generation and analysis of HD/3G/UHD/EUHD 2110 payloads on generic SFP28/25GbE interfaces. The flexible architecture of the QxP offers in-field, engineering grade data view and ANC packet inspection tools together with optional upgrades for SDI-UHD/4K, 2110-UHD/4K 48-60p RGB (EUHD), PCAP, Dolby E decode, HDR, and AV test signal generation.
