NDI® preserves visual quality, frame accuracy and course synchronization. High quality imagery is achieved with full 16bpp video color depth support. It includes audio requirements supporting 48kHz, 96kHz and beyond using 16, 32, and 64 channels. It interoperates with SDI and SMPTE ST 2110 among other standards, enabling the mixing together of all types of video delivery methods.

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.
