PHABRIX makes waves at NAB 2023 with the introduction of new QxP hybrid IP/SDI waveform monitor
Thatcham, UK – 28 February 2023: Test and measurement innovator, PHABRIX, will present its new QxP next-generation waveform monitor on booth C4920 at the April 2023 NAB Show.
Inheriting the flexible architecture of the acclaimed QxL rasterizer, the QxP offers an integral 3U multi-touch LCD screen with integral V-Mount or G-mount battery plates for portability. Designed for all production workflows, whether HD, UHD, SDR, HDR, SDI or IP, remote or conventional, the QxP’s combined waveform monitor, generator and analyzer toolsets are designed to meet the ever-changing demands of today’s hybrid environments.
The QxP offers the latest in PHABRIX’s patented waveform technology, featuring a high-resolution image processing pipeline with support for deep color sources up to 12-bits, delivering all the fine detail needed for camera shading or image grading. Users can access a choice of overlay, stacked and parade display modes, with the option of multi-colored, highlighted, green or monochrome traces. Nits scales and operation user-controlled nits markers are provided for SDR, HLG, PQ, S-Log3 and SR-live HDR formats. Rec 709 and Rec 2020 colorimetry is supported over the wide-range of YCbCr:422, RGB:444, SDI, 2110, SD/HD/2K/UHD/4K/EUHD formats for which PHABRIX is renowned.
For real-time IP production, the QxP provides support for generation and analysis of HD/3G/UHD/EUHD 2110 payloads on generic SFP28/25GbE interfaces. The unit's flexible architecture offers in-field engineering-grade data view and ANC packet inspection tools together with optional upgrades for SDI-UHD/4K, 2110-UHD/4K 48-60p RGB (EUHD), PCAP, Dolby E Decode, HDR, and AV test signal generation. A factory-fitted hardware option provides RTE™ ‘Real Time Eye’ and jitter SDI analysis with the further option of a highly advanced SDI-STRESS toolset.
Phillip Adams, CEO at PHABRIX comments: “I am delighted to announce the availability of the newest member of the PHABRIX test and measurement line up – the QxP. QxP is the world’s first portable 12G-SDI 25G ST 2110 combined waveform monitor, generator and analyzer. With all the functionality of our QxL rasterizer, but in a lightweight 3RU chassis, and with multiple interface control options, we really are offering our customers a next generation alternative to the traditional waveform monitor technology."
