Fresh from its recent success supporting 2014’s major winter sports event with 30 handheld SxE units, PHABRIX is set to impress once more at the UK’s biggest broadcast show. Guaranteed to be a show highlight is the UK debut of the TAG, a new handheld analyser/monitor with an entry point of £1999. This entry level test and measurement instrument comes brimming with new features designed at a price to put it within the reach of every broadcast engineer’s budget. Combining SDI, analogue and optical audio/video T&M in the one unit at a ground-breaking low price the TAG follows on from the success of the other PHABRIX rugged handheld instruments, the PHABRIX SxA and 3G eye and jitter PHABRIX SxE. Another big talking point will be newly launched enhancements for the PHABRIX Rx rack mount range in V9 software. PHABRIX’s rack mount range comprising of the dual integral screen 2U Rx 2000, the 1U Rx 1000 and the demi Rx 500 are each configured with modules offering a broadcaster or SI a choice in sophisticated monitoring capability. With 1920 x 1080 output via HDMI or SDI, the Rx range offers a multi-viewer type display of 16 instruments per channel. The maximum number of channels being 8 for the Rx2000 and Rx1000 - 4 of these channels available on-screen simultaneously – perfect for OB. Paul Nicholls, sales and marketing director commented, “The industry reaction to the TAG has been astounding – in fact we have pre orders reaching out to the end of March. The rack mount Rx we’re sure will certainly turn heads at BVE so I hope customers both old and new will take a moment to come and see us on our stand N43.” www.phabrix.com 38 | TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 86 FEBRUARY 2014
