level A and B. 2K digital cinema formats
included as defined in the SMPTE ST
2048-2:2011 standard 2048 x 1080 and
SMPTE 428-9.
Moving zone plate PHSXOZ
The option includes a control interface to enable frequency sweep adjustments.
This allows for direction and motion to be applied. Temporal control is particularly
useful for testing up/down convertors/monitors and applications which compress
signals. The interface allows for custom settings to be saved down to memories
and recalled at any time.
SDI Analysis and Ancillary data analyzer PHSXOSD
A combination of two instruments, this option provides a detailed view of the data words contained within the SDI stream and
an ancillary data packet analyzer. This allows the analysis of complex faults and is particularly useful in determining compatibility
issues between equipment and when debugging new product development in an R&D environment. The ancillary packet
analyzer also includes a DID and SDID search editor, freeze, and freeze on trigger function.
VANC analyzer grid PHSXOVNC
A simple grid layout provides a quick visual check for available vanc/anc ancillary data. The packet type is displayed as present,
absent or red if in fault. Simple icons next to the packet indicate the fault. Each ancillary packet available from the grid view can
be set to enable logging and then presented together with other information in the events window of the logging menu. User
defined selections can be entered with the appropriate DID or SDID code. Any ancillary packet code can be saved down for future
recall. Please note this option does not fully decode the ancillary data, but indicates the data is present.
Enhanced remote control PHSXOR
Using this option allows complex applications to be created on a PC to perform test
and measurement functions such as automated testing of routers and other broadcast
equipment. PHABRIX instruments act as a server and listen on a port waiting for incoming requests from clients such as a PC.
All visual controls on the product have an associated command. The control structure can be selected as Passive or Active.
The option also provides a programming guide with command information and examples on a CD. A Windows™ application
for testing the interface is also available.

optional toolset
Dolby metadata Generator and Analyzer PHSXO-DAG
This combination option of 5 screens provides both Dolby generation and Dolby analysis toolsets. All Dolby parameters can be
set up and logged. With a selection of Dolby E, Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus streams to choose from, engineers can quickly
enter and adjust parameters to check broadcast infrastructure. This allows the display of Dolby meta data present in a selected
audio stream and determines whether the Dolby E packet is timed correctly on the SDI video stream.
The Dolby E Analyser allows the display of Dolby metadata present in a selected audio stream and determines whether the Dolby
E packet is timed correctly on the SDI video stream. In use the new start menu window displays both the V Bit information and
PCM values along with a snapshot of the Dolby metadata. The Dolby metadata screen carries primary information including signal
source, Dolby E ‘guard band’ timing, CRC errors, program channel and metadata detail. Peak audio levels included in the Dolby E
metadata packet are displayed allowing the user to select the appropriate set of meters to display Dolby levels which will follow
the selected Dolby source. Logging for Dolby errors, Timing, Common metadata and Program metadata can be also be controlled.
Dolby metadata is displayed with audio levels however the audio is not decoded.

Command scripts with print report PHSXOS
This extremely useful option allows an engineer
to create a stack of commands for repeat testing
of systems using the toolsets within the Sx series.
By ordering the commands, simple or complex
tests can be configured and saved for recall by a
user defined operator name. Command scripts can
be created on the interface within the Sx series or
created offline on a PC.
When ‘run’ reports are generated which auto fill an
on-board html file which can then be downloaded
via the remote control facility and printed as a hard
paper copy. The report also collects screen dumps
of the instruments to accompany the report if
required.
Additionally users can add their own logo to
personalise the reports.
The savings in time and the ability to send a junior
engineer to run a command script in a facility
to check equipment and return with a report is
invaluable.

SxE only options
Standard physical layer toolset
Standard SxE Physical layer toolset compared to the
advanced physical layer option.
The standard PHABRIX SxE comes complete with a very
sophisticated eye and jitter toolset as standard. This
includes automated measurements for rise time, fall
time, delta, overshoot, undershoot and cable length. The
instrument also allows eye display up to a maximum of 10
eyes. Alignment and timing thermometers can be selected
individually.
The advanced eye and jitter option described below
adds additional filtering features which many broadcast
manufacturers and advanced users would find useful.

Advanced physical layer analysis PHSXOEA
The advanced analysis option for the PHABRIX SxE
adds an additional jitter screen plus enhancements
to the eye display and is focussed toward broadcast
manufacturers who have a need for high end analysis
tools.
• Histograms
• Decade filters
• Multiple eye patterns
• Simultaneous timing thermometers
• Eye colour for ‘hot spot’ view
• Persistence
• Cable type
• Additional jitter instrument
The eye can be coloured to show ‘hot spots’ and the cable
type can be selected.
The separate jitter analysis screen incorporated into the
advanced option enables the engineer to analyse the nature
of jitter present using a graph of jitter versus time.
The decade filters are present and the time base can be
adjusted from 1 line through to 1 frame. By analysing jitter
in this detailed way an engineer can determine if a signal is
in or out of specification and also get a feel for where any
problems lie. A spiky waveform could indicate power supply
noise and these visual clues aid the diagnosis. Vertical gain
and horizontal magnify controls are provided to help further
identify problems.

TAG only options
3G-SDI including advanced formats PHSXT-3G
This TAG-only option supports the new broadcast standards for 3G Level and Level
B signal transfer and provides advanced formats including 4:2:2 YUV, 4:4:4 RGB and
4:4:4 YUV at 10/12 bit. For broadcast manufacturers this option allows rigorous
testing of many more formats beyond the standard signals used in traditional
broadcasting.
Among the support for 3G level B is the ability to analyse signals such as SMPTE
425-B carrying 1 x SMPTE 372M Dual-Link payload. (Generation of these signals is
activated if the generator PHSXT-GEN is present)
TAG generator option PHSXT-GEN
The TAG only generator option allows the creation of video test signals for analogue composite video, SD-SDI and HD- SDI video as
standard including an A/V generator. 3G-SDI, 2K SDI formats can be purchased as additional option PHSXT-3G. The Generator option
also allows the generation of both analogue and digital audio test tones and can be locked to an external locking reference.
Audio break out cable PHSXC-1
A break-out cable is available to provide AES input and
output as well as calibrated balanced analogue audio input
and output to broadcast levels. It is connected to the TAG via
the D -way connector.
With both BNC and XLR connectors, this cable is a very useful
addition to the TAG instrument.
sfp : optical/copper
PHABRIX instruments support a range of SFPs (small form factor plugable) to allow them to be connected directly into fibre optic
video installations that use LC connectors.
Non-MSA SFPs have been developed for optimum
performance with SDI video rather than the IT
industry MSA SFPs and it is only Non-MSA SFP’s
which we support.
SFP’s using 1310nm transmission wavelength is
the recommended choice for most installations
as it is independent of multi-mode and singlemode cable.
The supported SFP range also includes a mini
BNC SDI video transceiver for use with the
PHABRIX TAG hand-held instrument
to allow closed loop testing in SDI
environments. Optical to SDI and back
is a powerful feature of the TAG.
A simple two screw removeable panel
gives access should there be a need to
replace the SFP cage.
Datasheets are available on the PHABRIX website that provide full details of the SFP modules available for use with PHABRIX
instruments. BNC cable adaptors for coaxial SFP’s are provided if purchased from PHABRIX.

3G + Advanced formats PHRXO-3GADV
The advanced format option adds support for 3G. The new formats include 4:2:2
YUV, 4:4:4 RGB and 4:4:4 YUV at 10/12 bit and 3G level A and B. Among the support
for 3G level B on the SxA and SxE is the ability to generate and analyse signals such
as SMPTE 425-B carrying 1 x 372M dual link payload. Uniquely PHABRIX Rx units
create three pathological signals in all formats which will be of great interest to
broadcast manufacturers. The first is as defined in SMPTE RP198 and is the split
field signal with the equaliser test in the first half and the PLL test in the second
half. The second and third are separate full-frame EQ test and PLL tests signals.
Advanced eye analysis with jitter screen PHRXO-EA
The analysis option for the Rx range adds an additional jitter screen plus enhancements to the eye display and is focussed toward
broadcast manufacturers who have a need for high end analysis tools.
Featuring Histograms, Filtering, Decade filters, Logging of eye measurements. Multiple eye selection also enables analysis when
serialiser jitter is present.
The separate jitter analysis screen incorporated into the advanced option enables the engineer to analyse the nature of jitter
present using a graph of jitter versus time.
4 channel loudness PHRXO-4LOU
The 4 Channel Loudness option allows up to 4 channels of loudness metering and monitoring to
be performed by the Rx unit (1 loudness channel per analyser module). The tools provided in the
Loudness window for each channel allow the loudness of the selected stereo audio pair or 5.1
surround audio group to be measured and logged.
Loudness can be measured in accordance with ITU or EBU Recommendation 128 which define
the measurement in terms of Loudness Units (UI) Loudness Units Full Scale (LUFS) and Loudness K
weighted scale (LKFS) over momentary, short term or integrated time periods.
Loudness is logged as defined by EBU Recommendation 128, and provides Start, Pause, Continue
and Reset functions. Loudness logs are created at a user-defined logging interval.
Loudness logs are stored automatically each time the user-defined interval is reached. These are individual, time-stamped CSV
(comma separated value) files. Log files can also be saved manually at any time.
4 channel closed caption PHRXO-4CAP
The Closed Caption option allows up to 4 channels of closed caption to be displayed. This is allocated as 1 channel per analyser
module. This provides support for WTS/OP42/OP47, EIA 608 and EIA 708 closed caption / subtitle formats. The specific closed
caption type to be displayed for each analyser channel can be selected.
When enabled, the closed caption is displayed over the image area of the
Picture monitor. EIA 608 (or CEA 608) closed caption support is provided for
SD-SDI 525i applications still used in the Canada, USA and Mexico. EIA 708 (or
CEA 708) closed caption support is provided for SDI applications in the USA
and Canada. WST (World System Teletext) closed caption support is provided
SDI applications in the UK and Europe.
OP42 and OP47 closed caption support is provided for SDI applications in
Australia and other countries.

optional toolset
SDI Analysis and Ancillary data analyzer PHRXO-SD
A combination of two instruments, this option provides a detailed view of the data words contained within the SDI stream and
an ancillary data packet analyzer. This allows the analysis of complex faults and is particularly useful determining compatibility
issues between equipment and when debugging new product development in an R&D environment. The ancillary packet
analyzer also includes a DID and SDID search editor, freeze, and freeze on trigger functionality.
Dolby metadata Generator and Analyzer PHRXO-DAG
This combination option of 5 screens provides both Dolby generation and Dolby analysis toolsets. All Dolby parameters can be
set up and logged. With a selection of Dolby E, Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus streams to choose from, engineers can quickly
enter and adjust parameters to check broadcast infrastructure. This allows the display of Dolby meta data present in a selected
audio stream and determines whether the Dolby E packet is timed correctly on the SDI video stream.
The Dolby E Analyser allows the display of Dolby meta data present in a selected audio stream and determines whether the
Dolby E packet is timed correctly on the SDI video stream. In use the new start menu window displays both the V Bit information
and PCM values along with a snapshot of the Dolby metadata. The Dolby metadata screen carries primary information including
signal source, Dolby E ‘guard band’ timing, CRC errors, program channel and metadata detail. Peak audio levels included in the
Dolby E meta data packet are displayed allowing the user to select the appropriate set of meters to display Dolby levels which will
follow the selected Dolby E source. Logging for Dolby errors, Timing, Common metadata and Program metadata can be also be
controlled. Dolby meta data is displayed with audio levels however the audio is not decoded.
browser control
The Rx series of rack mount test
and measurement instruments
are all equipped with a TCP/IP
interface enabling any standard
PC browser to control the onboard web server.
Uniquely the Rx 2000
has a front panel
simulation on the
browser to control the
unit. With the correct IP address selected, engineers
can remote control each instrument via the HDMI
representation, download frame capture, screen
dumps, loudness csv files and logging data files.
