JT-NM Self-Test results for PHABRIX’ Qx Rasterizer & Sx TAG

Various PHABRIX solutions successfully self-tested against the criteria for AMWA NMOS TR-1001-1 and SMPTE 2110 at the JT-NM Spring 2020 self-test. The products that self-tested include the Qx rasterizer and handheld Sx TAG.

The JT-NM Tested Program shows how various IP-based equipment aligns with the SMPTE ST 2110, SMPTE ST 2059 and AMWA NMOS TR-1001-1 standards and requirements. The Qx ST 2110 “JT-NM Self-Tested” core IP feature set provides operators with ST 2110 confidence status monitoring. Furthermore, it is designed for HD IP ST 2110/2022-7 AMWA NMOS and ST 2022-6 environments. The Sx TAG, on the other hand, offers support for modern broadcast IP systems with JT-NM Self-Tested encapsulation and decapsulation. A built-in synchroniser supports hybrid operation, allowing asynchronous SDI sources to be locked to PTP for ST 2110 encapsulation.

Advanced visualization, analysis and monitoring tools for your HDR/WCG workflows

TEVIOS is proud to share PHABRIX’ latest updates involving HDR/WCG and its Qx Series :

PHABRIX_QxSeries_HDR_Englishheader_TEVIOS

While offering more engaging and realistic viewing for audiences, HDR and WCG also bring additional challenges with respect to the management of video brightness and color space for broadcasters and technology manufacturers.

To address these issues the PHABRIX Qx Series of rasterizers offer an advanced set of visualization, analysis and monitoring tools for HDR and WCG enabled facilities.

Comprehensive HDR Analysis Toolset

The Qx Series advanced HDR toolset includes a signal generator, CIE chart, Luma false color highlighting or “heat map”, and cd/m2 (nits) scales and markers on the waveform monitor.

False Color Highlighting

A programmable ‘Heat Map’ to highlight luminance zones allowing for the quick identification of Highlights, Shadows, Skin-tones and Out-of-range regions, with 7 simultaneous programmable color overly bands and the ability to select pre-configured presets for both SDR and HDR in addition to the creation of custom user defined preset layouts.

PHABRIX_ColorBars_HeatMap_TEVIOS

A Wide Range of Test Patterns

An extensive set of test patterns include BT.2111 HDR color bars for HLG, PQ, and SR Live as well as a full set of SDR 709 patterns mapped via ‘display light’ to each of the four HDR formats for line checks, comparative monitor set-up and the evaluation of HDR to SDR converters.

PHABRIX_ColorBars_HDR_TEVIOS

Extensive Format Support

All the main broadcast SDR and HDR production formats are supported: Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) BT.709, BT.2020 as well as HDR BT.2100 HLG, PQ and Sony S-Log3 and SR Live.

Phabrix to demonstrate Hybrid IP/SDI analysis & monitoring at NAB 2019

At this year’s NAB Show, Phabrix will launch a V3.0 software release for its Qx rasterizer, which offers the latest hybrid IP/SDI test and measurement tools. The Qx now supports SMPTE 2110 (-20, -30, -31, -40), ST 2059 Precision Time protocol (PTP) and two-port ST 2022-7 seamless protection. It also provides simultaneous monitoring of 1 video, 2 audio – supporting up to 16 channels each at 1ms and 125us with either PCM or AES3 Transport – and 1 ANC data flow for up to 16 active, scalable windows. The newest features include operator status information for PTP, 2022-7 seamless reconstruction and the timing relationship of flows to PTP.

Qx Range

In its upcoming release and demonstration at NAB, the Qx ST 2110 advanced engineering features include the measurement of ST 2110-21 network compatibility and virtual receiver buffer models, advanced PTP to Flow Timing data view, as well as Inter-Packet Arrival Times for all flows contributing to the ST 2022-7 seamless reconstruction.

The Qx rasterizer, alongside PHABRIX’s handheld Sx TAG provides a solution for hybrid IP/SDI environments. Sx TAG offers support for SMPTE 2110 (-20, -30, -40) encapsulation and decapsulation with ST 2059 PTP. The new features include SDI to IP and IP to SDI gateways for both ST 2110 and ST 2022-6, plus the ability to generate an analog reference output slaved to the ST 2059 PTP or 2022-6 IP input.
