Bexel, an NEP Broadcast Services Company, has ordered 31 Phabrix Sx portable HD/SD analyser/generators, including six Sx TAG analyser/generators plus 25 SxE units with eye/jitter analysis, for use in the busy winter sports season. This test and measurement equipment will be used for quality control and troubleshooting by engineers in the field and studio this winter.

“Ensuring video quality is absolutely essential for high-profile live sports productions,” said Martin Mulligan, Phabrix sales and operations director. “Our Sx range offers engineers a high level of mobility, as well as the advanced diagnostic toolset needed to address urgent video and audio quality issues.”

The ultra-compact Sx test and measurement range offers advanced capabilities including hybrid IP/SDI performance (Sx TAG) and physical layer testing (SxE), along with proven rugged design and exceptional ease of use. In addition to handling 3G/HD/SD-SDI, optical SDI, HDMI, and analogue formats, the Sx series supports ST 2022-6 and, in an upcoming software release, ST 2110 encapsulation/decapsulation.

Designed for rapid fault-finding and compliance testing, the Sx range can also be used in remote locations with monitoring over a network. The rich diagnostic toolset includes a multiformat waveform and vectorscope plus video and 16-channel audio monitoring. An intuitive, colour-coded interface speeds testing workflows, and operation with mains or battery power provides versatility on the move.
