NEWS MANAGE & MONITOR Stand P39 Test & Measurement PHABRIX will be at BVE London with the latest software release for its innovative Rx rack mount range. The Rx is available in three chassis types, the 2U Rx 2000 with dual integrated screens and the 1U Rx 1000 and the half rack 1U Rx 500. Each chassis displays instruments via SDI or usefully by HDMI at 1920 x 1080 resolution. The ability to display up to 20 instruments simultaneously on each of the 4 channel inputs has not gone unnoticed by the broadcast networks. The release of V9.02 coincides with the installation of a major system into one of America’s primary networks as a QC solution. The unique ability to link each of the Rx’s via simple KVM allows the hardware to stay in the engineering bay and each Rx is routed by keyboard and mouse to multiple engineers.

The IABM Training Academy is looking to add an online curriculum online to its established classroom-based courses. The virtual classroom, which is expected to be launched via IABM’s website in late spring, will include online versions of the existing attend-in-person courses. Brand new material that is being developed specifically for the online programme will be ready by the end of 2015. IABM training manager Steve Warner said: “The focus this year is on expansion and regionalisation and the entire website is being developed to provide configurable and customisable interfaces with more local content. As part of this globalisation strategy, the Training Academy will also be delivering its courses to a worldwide audience through the new virtual facility.” The IABM Training Academy currently offers 17 different classroom-based courses looking at a range of areas, from the protocols of streaming video across IP networks, to broadcast technology workflows. Last year the IABM announced three new partnerships, with Zoom Training, RealCom Broadcast and the Technology Academy. www.phabrix.com www.theiabm.org/training The new features on show at BVE include several additional toolsets to enhance the already extensive support for both video and audio providing a ‘one box’ solution in a cost effective package. The Sx range hand held is also on display. The PHABRIX SxE with its on board eye and jitter toolsets continues to succeed with its unrivalled multi format generator incorporated within the analyser and monitoring toolsets with full physical layer analysis. Released at NAB last year, the TAG with its SDI and analogue toolsets and fibre optic support has found a new following from many pro video engineers and has been further enhanced for both MSA and non MSA SFP support. PHABRIX unusually is keeping its powder dry for the debut of its new 12G SDI product at NAB in April following a successful technological demonstration at IBC last year.
