PHABRIX is the latest addition to the ASPEN Community
The ASPEN Community has announced that its newest member is PHABRIX, an innovative leader in test and measurement instruments. The ASPEN Community is a rapidly growing coalition of industry leading manufacturers and end-users who are adopting the ASPEN framework for building state-of-the-art IP facilities.
ASPEN (Adaptive Sample Picture ENcapsulation) is an open format that was developed to meet the real world requirements of an IP-centric facility while leveraging proven MPEG2-TS standards. ASPEN provides a framework for transporting separated video, audio, and metadata as independent IP multicast streams. The ASPEN Community was founded at IBC 2015 to realize and promote the benefits of deploying the ASPEN format within IP-based broadcast and media facilities through the integration and interoperability of the open format.
“PHABRIX are delighted to join the ASPEN community. Our latest instrument for T&M, the PHABRIX Qx is a true hybrid solution targeted at both SDI and IP network based applications. This exciting new platform has been developed with the flexibility to support new open formats and ASPEN is recognized as one of the leading standards available,” says Paul Nicholls, marketing director, PHABRIX.
“With their experience in test and measurement in the broadcast industry, PHABRIX brings a unique perspective to the ASPEN Community. As the industry continues to transition from SDI to IP, the ASPEN Community is committed to providing the leadership to educate the industry on the benefits of ASPEN as an open framework for IP facilities,” says Mo Goyal, co-chairperson of the ASPEN Community.
