PHABRIX Qx 12G Used In 4K Truck

News Image
Italian broadcast production company Cinevideo is installing the PHABRIX Qx 12G as the main test and measurement system for IP, 4K/UHD (12G-SDI), and HD within its OB truck, Dolphin 7.0.

Supplied by system integrator Video Signal, the PHABRIX Qx 12G gives Cinevideo's newest 4K mobile unit an array of advanced signal generation, analysis, and monitoring capabilities.

The PHABRIX Qx 12G offers all the advanced, hybrid IP/SDI test and measurement tools required for handling next-generation video formats, including instruments for rapid fault diagnosis and compliance monitoring. The IP toolset designed for SMPTE ST 2110 and ST 2022-6 includes packet interval timing (PIT) analysis for rapid diagnosis of packet congestion, packet loss, and jitter. The Qx 12G also incorporates a packet profile generator for stress-testing IP video networks to ensure operation.

A high dynamic range (HDR) and wide color gamut (WCG) toolset is also available, including a signal generator, CIE chart, luminance heat map, vectorscope and waveform, to speed workflows by improving visualization and analysis of 4K/UHD and HD-SDI content.

The PHABRIX Qx 12G's 12G/6G/3G/HD-SDI physical layer analysis is ultra-responsive and employs RTE (Real-Time Eye) technology to highlight any SMPTE compliance issues. These analysis workflows are strengthened with automation that allows testing to be performed faster andr reliably.

The triple-expando mobile unit boasts two separate production rooms with separate audio production areas, making the new vehicle ideal for football coverage, concerts, and other demanding live events. The unit accommodates up to 24 4K cameras and is outfitted with an Imagine Communications IP3 router for HD and quad link; a Ross Video Ultrix 12G routing switcher; and best-of-breed mixing, control, communications, and 4K server systems.

Andrea Buonomo, Executive Sales Manager, Cinevideo, said: "We found the Qx 12G to be the one and only instrument capable of accommodating HD, quad-link 12G-SDI, and IP in a single unit. The integrated test generator is especially helpful in the 12G world we've created within the truck, and we'll also take full advantage of the eye and jitter analysis."

"It is exciting to see Cinevideo planning to take full advantage of the Qx 12G's analysis functionality across 4K/UHD and IP," added Neil Sharpe, Head of Marketing, PHABRIX. "The new Cinevideo OB unit represents a great example of signal QC in a modern IP-based production truck."
