PHABRIX’s most compact, feature-rich 25G IP ST 2110 rasterizer
Addressing the needs of professional broadcast media IP networks in a compact form factor
The QxL inherits all the JT-NM Tested features of the Qx with a common look and feel across both platforms. For realtime UHD IP workflows on 25G networks with video payloads up to 21Gbps, the class leading QxL provides support for 2110 and 2022-6 on generic 10G/25G SFP28 interfaces. The QxL is fully 10G/25G IP enabled as standard, with support for generation and analysis of a JT-NM TR 1001- 1:2018, ST 2110-20 (video), up to four 2110-30 (PCM) and 2110-31 (AES transport) audio and a 2110-40 ANC media flow, all with 2022-7 Seamless IP Protection Switching (SIPS) and AMWA NMOS IS-04 discovery and IS-05 device connection management.
The flexible architecture of the QxL offers in-field license upgrades for SDI-UHD/4K, 2110-UHD/4K 48-60p RGB (EUHD), PCAP, Dolот E Decode, HDR, AV test signal generation as well as engineering grade data view and ANC packet inspection tools. A factory fitted hardware option provides RTE™ realtime SDI eye and jitter analysis with the further option of a highly advanced SDI-STRESS toolset.
SUITE OF IP MONITORING TOOLS
IP media interfaces are provided as standard in the QxL, inheriting all the JT-NM Tested features of the Qx. 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 all with 2022-7 Seamless IP Protection Switching (SIPS), and independent PTP followers on both media ports for fully-redundant media network operation.
ST 2110 ANALYSIS FEATURE SET
A suite of operator level IP flow health and PTP monitoring is provided with warnings and alarms. For detailed analysis and debug, the new IP-MEAS toolset provides advanced engineering-grade information including four 2022-7 Packet Interval Time (PIT) displays, media port network statistics, real time measurements of Flow to PTP relationships and latency plus real-time measures of 2110-21 Cinst and Vrx.
12G-SDI PHYSICAL LAYER & STRESS
The QxL offers a 12G/6G/3G/HD-SDI physical layer analysis option, including Real-Time Eye technology to instantly highlight any SMPTE compliance issues including eye amplitude, transition times and overshoot. The SDI-STRESS toolset provides both Shorth Mean/Mode, with a histogram overlay and exploration of eye amplitude. PRBS generation and analysis of PRBS-7, 9, 15, 23, 31 allows for deterministic measurement of link Bit Error Rates.
AUDIO AND VIDEO GENERATION
Generate and analyze a set of SDI/IP formats. The QxL can generate two sets of video and audio ST 2022-7 flow pairs, including Test Pattern as a flow (1 x ST 2110-20 and 4 x ST 2110- 30/31 with 2022-7) and GUI as a flow (1 x ST 2110-20 and 1 x 2110-30/31 with 2022-7). Moving test patterns offer up to 32 channels of embedded audio per link or subfield (up to 128 channels on 12G interfaces). The toolset provides core full screen SDI Pathological SDI stress patterns as well as allowing the user to define a combination of SDI stress and conventional generator patterns up to full frame.
DOLBY® E DECODER & METADATA ANALYZER
The Dolот E Decoder and Metadata Analyzer option provides a clear and accessible view of the Dolот E metadata present in a selected Dolот E or ED2 audio stream. It also enables you to check the correct timing of Dolот E packets in the audio signal in an SDI or ST 2022-6 broadcast chain. You can check whether the Dolот E is created correctly and transferred transparently от network equipment such as routers, switchers, satellite links, etc.
AMWA NMOS TOOLSET
A suite of AMWA NMOS tools that provide flexibility when integrating with an NMOS controller and associate network Topology. Supported protocols: IS-04 v1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 IS-05 1.02, 1.1 and IS-09 PTP domain. Provision of both in-band and out-of-band control topologies with manual, mDNS, DNS-SD and DHCP. Senders and Receivers can be independently configured as single or dual NMOS end points.
USER-DEFINED INSTRUMENT LAYOUT
Out of the box, the QxL offers media analysis for broadcast operator HD/3G environments, with a flexible user-defined instrument layout displaying up to 16 simultaneous windows, and the ability to rapidly change between bespoke layouts for different operational tasks with user presets. Multiple display layouts can be saved as presets. This allows users to save bespoke layouts for different operational tasks; useful for rapidly changing between different screen layouts eg. Audio, HDR or IP focus.
ANALYSIS AND MONITORING TOOLSET
Picture view, waveform, vectorscope, 32 channel audio metering, detection of Dolот formats, ANC status and payload, on screen display of OP47 and CEA-608 in 708 closed captions and Ancillary Time Code (ATC), and advanced control and logging are all provided as standard.
HDR VISUALIZATION AND ANALYSIS
The QxL’s advanced HDR toolset includes a signal generator, CIE chart, Luma false color heat map/highlighting, waveform monitor and vectorscope. All the main live production SDR/HDR formats are supported: SDR BT.709, BT.2020, plus HDR BT.2100 HLG, PQ and Sony S-Log3 and SR Live. An extensive set of test patterns include BT.2111 HDR color bars for HLG, PQ and SR Live as well as SDR 709 patterns.
