Hand-held Test and Measurement

SxA: The SxA includes an extensive array of video and audio tools includes a signal generator with moving test patterns, a high-performance waveform, ANC/VANC inspector, 16 channel audio generation and metering with support for Dolby® E, Dolby® Digital and Dolby® Digital metadata and bitstream analysis.

SxD: The SxD is a dual-link 3G/HD/SD-SDI instrument. It has two SDI inputs, two SDI outputs and no AES input or outputs.

SxE: The SxE’s instant, RTE™ (Real-Time Eye) technology speeds physical layer testing, and delivers automated measurements and logging for key parameters such as: rise time, fall time, delta, overshoot, undershoot and cable length. It features advanced jitter analysis, Dolby® E, Dolby® Digital and Dolby® Digital Plus bitstream analysis.

Sx TAG: Sx TAG with its SFP, SDI and analog I/O offers incredible versatility in a handheld device. It is ideal for IP, 3G/HD/SD-SDI, optical SDI, HDMI and Analog test & measurement as well as AES eye analysis, for applications demanding true mobility and ease of use. It provides support for SMPTE ST 2110-20/30/40 encapsulation/decapsulation with ST 2059 PTP, SDP and NMOS as well as SMPTE ST 2022-6 encapsulation/ decapsulation, using 10GE IP SFP+ modules developed by Embrionix.

Rack-mounted Test and Measurement

Rx 2000: With built-in screens and audio speakers, the top of the range Rx 2000 offers up to 4 channels of 2K/3G/HD/SD-SDI video/audio analysis and monitoring (dual inputs per analyzer), and can also provide signal generation. Up to 16 instruments can be presented simultaneously for video analysis and eye/jitter testing via an external display.

Rx 1000: The advanced Rx 1000 provides up to 4 channels of 2K/3G/HD/SD-SDI video/audio analysis and monitoring (dual inputs per analyzer), and also provides signal generation. Up to 16 instruments can be presented simultaneously for video analysis and eye/jitter testing via an external monitor.

Rx 500: Ideal for Quality Control applications, the Rx 500 is a single/dual channel 2K/3G/HD/SD-SDI video/audio analyzer and monitoring solution in a very compact 1/2 RU frame (dual inputs per analyser).

Qx: Designed for HD/3G/6G/12G-SDI and IP ST 2110/2022-7/2022-6 environments, the instrument set includes tools for rapid fault diagnosis, compliance monitoring and product development. Qx offers media analysis for broadcast operator HD-SDI environments, with picture view, waveform analyzer, vectorscope, 32 channel audio metering and ANC status as standard. The fully flexible architecture offers upgrades for UHD/4K-SDI, ST 2110 and ST 2022-6, HDR, Audio and Video generation, SDI Eye and and SDI-STRESS.

PHABRIX suprises at IBC 2014 with 4K and ALL UHDTV1 formats announcement


The big news on the stand for PHABRIX at IBC 2014 was 4K and its world's first announcement of a 12 Gb/s eye supporting ALL UHDTV1 and 4K formats. PHABRIX kept their big news under warps allowing 'invitation' only customers into the stand office to see the new technology at work and witness the 12Gb/s eye in operation.


Once inside PHABRIX were keen to show off the established Rx chassis now supporting the new 4K card. Having promised early adopters of the Rx rack mount modular instrument that the product was future proofed as new technologies come along, the Rx now supports SD, HD, 3G and 4K UHDTV capability with the addition of the new module.

The Rx card supporting this technology has 4 x 12 Gps inputs and outputs making a staggering 48 Gaps capacity, more than enough for ALL UHDTV1 and many of the UHDTV2 payloads.
The chipsets that make this possible are not available until early in the 2015 so expect 4K cards on the Rx rack mount modular system at NAB 2015. By demonstrating the technology early using pre-engineering chips, PHABRIX were keen to pose the question ‘why buy another product that doesn’t support every 4K format when you can wait a few months and have the best in the business on its establish Rx chassis with its multi window presentation’.

Phillip Adams, founder of PHABRIX added, ‘We are working with leading edge technology not yet commercially available to the market hence our decision to release at NAB 2015. There are serious limitations with current 4K and UHDTV product offerings. What we are demonstrating offers a complete solution supporting 4 x 12 GB/s SDI (48 GB/s) and optical interconnects based upon next generation FPGA technology. Cutting through the confusion is what we have always strived to do at PHABRIX. I welcome talking to fellow technologists to understand the application of our new technology in solving some of the problems they foresee migrating to 4K and UHDTV1 formats.’



Paul Nicholls, sales and marketing for PHABRIX commented;
‘The stand was crazy this year, we had people blocking the aisles. The 4K UHDTV announcement was certainly pulling the high end broadcast manufacturers, but we haven’t been holding back on our other Rx rack mount developments either. New toolsets include A/V generation, an amazing audio down mix matrix which turns the Rx into a fantastic audio/video QC test and measurement combination. With closed caption support, AFD/VI/WSS, V-Chip indication and dual Dolby decode for Dolby E, D and D plus, the Rx displays 17 instruments at a time at 1920 x 1080 via HDMI or SDI output. Did I forget to say it can do this on 4 simultaneous inputs and on SDI or fibre – both interfaces are built into the modules.


We’re known for our handheld products so the new A/V delay generator on show becomes part of the standard toolset. Our new TAG shown at IBC is the most cost effective hand held instrument on the market today with composite, SDI and optical interfaces. With fibre go
