PHABRIX, a leading provider of test and measurement instruments based in the UK, announced that it will be delivering its new production Rx 2000 rack mount T&M solution at IBC 2011. The Rx 2000 is an innovative dual screen 2U platform capable of accepting up to 4 modules providing 8 simultaneous inputs if required. The ability of the Rx to accept different modules to support analysis, eye and jitter analysis, test pattern generation, Dolby, MADI and ASI options on the new platform provides broadcast engineers with a cost effective centralized solution for broadcast T&M. The Rx 2000 is the first of a series of three new rack mount products originally announced at NAB this year to be on show at IBC.
PHABRIX’s new rasterizers will also be on display, packed with innovative features including optical support and full 1920 x 1080 screen output for instrumentation via HDMI or SDI – a world’s first on this form factor. Both rasterizers have been designed to accept the same modules supporting the Rx 2000. Significantly PHABRIX’s eye and jitter technology, industry tried and tested on its Sx hand held range since 2009, is available for the Rx1000 and the Rx500 and both support enhanced audio capabilities including AES and Dolby E, D and D+.
Paul Nicholls, head of sales and marketing at PHABRIX commented,
‘The Rx range of rack mount products elevates PHABRIX into the mainstream of test and measurement solutions available. A suite of modules are available for the Rx series, each compatible with the 2U dual screen Rx 2000, the Rx 1000 1U and the ‘baby’ Rx 500 half rack 1U rasterizer. Broadcasters and broadcast manufacturers can now add additional T&M requirements quickly and easily to the platform at a fraction of the cost usually associated with this quality of instrumentation. From a price point and feature-set, the Rx series of products are unbeatable.’
PHABRIX are in Hall 8 E23.
