PHABRIX QxL – 25G IP Rasterizer Wins Silver at DMW Awards 2020!

The QxL – 25G IP Rasterizer by PHABRIX receives silver for IP Broadcast Solutions at the Digital Media World Awards 2020. The QxL supports IP media as standard while offering SDI as an option.

PHABRIX_QxL_Rasterizer_shipping_TEVIOS

Flexible and compact, this 25GbE UHD rasterizer meets the requirements of 10GbE/25GbE IP workflows. This IP-enabled rasterizer supports JT-NM TR 1001-1:2018, 2110-20 (video), 2110-30 (PCM audio), 2110-31 (AES audio), and 2110-40 (ANC) media flows. It also provides fully-redundant media network operation thanks to 2022-7 Seamless IP Protection Switching (SIPS) and independent PTP slaves on each media port.

The QxL toolset supports DHCP on all IP ports. It also offers unicast DNS-SD, AMWA NMOS IS-04 Discovery and Registration, IS-05 Connection management and Network Topology Discovery using LLDP. The user-friendly GUI offers 16 user-configurable windows for rapid visualization of various workflow and traffic configurations.

Most importantly for HD IP broadcasting, an SDI I/O option provides 12G/6G/3G/HD-SDI single, dual and quad link support making it one of the first devices of its kind for which SDI is an option, and not part of the core. It features optional Real Time Eye (RTE) 12G-SDI Eye and Jitter physical layer analysis. Furthermore, licenses can be added in order to accommodate UHD over IP, QC, engineering and HDR.

The PHABRIX QxL 25G IP Rasterizer is now shipping!

Released in April 2020, the QxL 25G IP UHD ST 2110 rasterizer by PHABRIX is now shipping!

 

Considered the world’s most compact, feature-rich 25G IP UHD ST 2110 rasterizer, the QxL is flexible and meets the needs of professional broadcast media IP networks. Not to mention, it contains the same JT-NM Tested features of the Qx. Furthermore, this 10G/25G IP enabled rasterizer supports JT-NM TR 1001-1:2018, 2110-20 (video), 2110-30 (PCM audio), 2110-31 (AES transport) and 2110-40 (ANC media) flows. It also features 2022-7 SIPS and independent PTP slaves for fully-redundant media network operation.

The QxL toolset supports DHCP on all IP ports. It also offers unicast DNS-SD, AMWA NMOS IS-04 Discovery and Registration, IS-05 Connection management and Network Topology Discovery using LLDP. The user-friendly GUI offers 16 user-configurable windows for rapid visualization of various workflow and traffic configurations.

Most importantly, the QxL features the same accessible user interface as the Qx. Therefore minimal re-training costs exist for current Qx users.

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.

PHABIRX_JT-NM self-test_TEVIOS

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.

Upgrade the PHABRIX Rx Rasterizer with AV Delay Analysis

With the AV Delay option for PHABRIX’s Rx rasterizers, audio-video delay is measured through a broadcast workflow.

Phabrix_Rx500_rasterizer_TEVIOS

Real-time updates of the differential delay between the video and audio channels (up to 8 pairs) are measured and displayed thanks to the AV Delay option. Using positive (+), negative (-) and zero (0) measurement indicators, users are able to see if the audio pulse is lagging, ahead of, or completely in sync with the video. The differential delay is measured in 0.1ms steps with an operating range of +/-400ms.

Phabrix_Rx2000_rasterizer_TEVIOS

Additional features include compatibility with all Rx supported video formats and frame rates on SDI. It also supports measurement of two AV Delay test patterns. These include EBU Tech 3305 and LAWO V_line AV Sync. Plus, the upgrade works with PHABRIX Sx AV Delay pattern generation and measurement.

The AV Delay option is available on the PHABRIX Rx 500, Rx 1000, Rx 2000, SxA, SxD, SxE and Sx TAG instruments.
