Rx Range of Rasterizer Products: VIDEO by PHABRIX

PHABRIX released a video of their Rx range of test & measurement rasterizer products. The Rx Series is perfect for analyzing, generating and monitoring 3G/HD/SD SDI signals.

Overall, the Rx Series includes 3 models with identical software features*:

  • Rx 500: 2 channel analyzer/generator & monitoring system (1/2 1U)
  • Rx 1000: Compact 4 channel analyzer/generator & monitoring system (1U)
  • Rx 2000: 4 channel analyzer/generator with monitoring via dual built-in screens & audio speakers (2U)

*The choice of model comes down to the desired form-factor and number of signals to be monitored simultaneously. One module required per signal.

The Rx range uses the type of same tools as the Sx handheld units, plus a few additional features. In other words, Rx is like having multiple Sx handheld units in one box.

PHABRIX video Highlights Qx Series’ flexible GUI

In their latest video, PHABRIX walks users through the Qx Series‘ flexible GUI.

Selecting, resizing and moving instruments within the Qx Series is simple! Click the PHABRIX logo in the bottom left corner to display and select all of the instruments available on the unit. Easily change the size of the instrument being displayed by double left-clicking on it. Next, drag the instrument in the position on the screen where you’d like it displayed.

Once the instrument layout is complete, save it as a preset. A unique feature of the Qx Series is that it not only remembers the selected instruments, but also the submenu options selected. To select from the submenu of each instrument, simply right-click.

See further examples in the video below:

AV Delay toolset on PHABRIX Sx Handheld Series VIDEO

The AV Delay toolset on the PHABRIX handheld Sx range measures audio to video differential delay through a broadcast chain.

PHABRIX_Sx_AVDelay_TEVIOS

In addition to providing a real-time update of the differential delay between video content and a selected audio channel pair, PHABRIX’s AV Delay Generation and Analysis also measures the propagation (latency), or pipeline delay, of the video and audio content.

See this toolset explained in the demo video below:

SCTE 104 capabilities in PHABRIX Qx Rasterizers: VIDEO

The following video demonstrates the SCTE 104 capabilities in the PHABRIX Qx Series. More specifically, it features the QxL rasterizer.

SCTE-104 messaging is used throughout the broadcast industry as the standard method for including specific program automation signals and markers in video. Examples include program parts and commercial breaks.

Monitoring of SCTE-104 messages in the Qx and QxL is supported for both conventional SDI interfaces and 2110-40 and 2022-6.

VIDEO Highlights Pretalk Streaming Feature on AVT Telephone Hybrids

In their new series Lukas Explains, Lukas Mahler, Marketing & Sales Assistant at AVT, showcases the Pretalk Streaming Feature available for all AVT Telephone Hybrids.

Telephone Hybrids convert an incoming phone call into an audio signal suitable for the studio environment. Three different line interfaces are often used: POTS (analogue telephone lines), ISDN or ethernet interfaces using voice over IP technology.

IO Industries Introduces New 8KSDI Camera!

IO Industries announces its new 8KSDI camera, combining 8K (and UHDTV2) capture with live 10-bit SDI output. This compact, single-piece POV video camera offers superb image quality at an affordable price.

IOI_8KSDI_8KUHDvideocamera_TEVIOS

The 8KSDI camera is designed for professional live broadcast and video production environments as well as virtual reality content creation, visual effects, remote monitoring and wide-area surveillance. It provides a low latency connection over 12G/6G-SDI to other infrastructure. It also features a new global shutter CMOS image sensor, the XGS 45000, from ON Semiconductor. This sensor eliminates motion artifacts and flash bonding effects by combining high resolution with high image quality & uniformity. In applications where 8K resolution is not needed, an in-camera scaling mode enables 4K/UHD output at 60fps via single-link 12G/6G-SDI.

IOI_8KSDI_8KUHDvideocamera_lensmounts_TEVIOS

For factory-installed lens mounts, two choices are available: F-mount or Active EF-Mount. The F-mount is a passive, mechanical-only mount while the Active EF-mount electronically controls attached EF-mount lenses.

In summary:

  • 8K global shutter sensor, Super 35 format (26.2 x 13.8mm, 29.6mm diagonal)
  • DCI 8K & UHDTV2 formats or scaled DCI 4K & UHD formats
  • Standard frame rate (23.98-60.00) 10-bit 4:2:2 output
  • Various lens mount options (Nikon F, Canon EF)
  • Remote control via handheld remote & on-screen menu or via 3rd party remote control panels
  • Tri-level sync input for multi-camera synchronization

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.
