About Phabrix Ltd - Test & Measurement Equipment for Broadcast & Film Production

Phabrix is an innovative company specialising in test, measurement and monitoring, design and manufacture of compact products for the International broadcast, film, music production, manufacturing and telecommunications sectors.

A world leader in test, measurement and monitoring.

Technologies include:
• Multi-format digital video interfaces supporting the whole range of 3G-SDI, Dual-Link, HD-SDI and SD-SDI signals.
• Full 16-channel audio embedding and de-embedding.
• Linux operating system using Ethernet for remote operation and monitoring.
• High quality video scaling with in-vision audio monitoring.

Hand-held Test and Measurement
The PHABRIX SxA has been designed to cater to the needs of the professional broadcast engineer who needs a portable solution for the growing sophisticated test requirement in the broadcast engineering industry. The PHABRIX SxA supports 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, SD-SDI video plus AES audio testing and monitoring - a world’s first for such a product. Additionally the SxA affords the unique combination of 3G, HD and SD testing and the ability to generate, analyse and monitor test signals in a single unit. The SxA stands out as an affordable, portable, highly technically-advanced testing device for use in the studio, outside broadcast installations, broadcast stations and for remote testing of installed equipment. With the implementation of many differing standards in broadcast, the Sx is the first product to launch supporting the new 3G standard alongside HD and SD. The Sx can also generate at one standard and analyse at many. The integrated generator/analyser is closed-loop for control. The Sx has its own reference in lock with auto Bi-level, Tri-level and SDI genlock with cross lock capability.

The PHABRIX SxD is a Dual Link variant of the hugely succesful SxA. Supporting 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and SDI-SDI the SxD offers the same handheld portabilty of the PHABRIX Sx range with a toolset focussed on Dual Link applications.

Introducing the next generation from PHABRIX representing a huge leap of technology encompassed in a hand held test and measurement instrument.

Available since the first quarter of 2009, the PHABRIX SxE is a revolutionary product designed to meet the specific demands of both broadcast and manufacturing industries who require the very best equipment.

Rack Mount Test and Measurement
The PHABRIX Rx range of test and measurement instruments adds a rack mounted device to its highly successful 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and SD-SDI test and measurement equipment range. Available quarter 2 2009, the Rx range has been designed for environments such as central control booths, studio engineering panels and OB facilities providing a necessary 'point of excellence' in support of the test and measurement requirements of the broadcast architecture within its control.

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
