Phabrix enhances Qx Series with new software release
Phabrix has released V4.5 software for its Qx and QxL hybrid IP/SDI, 4K/UHD and HDR/WCG rasterisers.
The release extends and enhances the Qx Series’ existing ST2110 NMOS toolset, adding generation and transmission capabilities for the QxL; together with enhanced configuration controls, NMOS node status overviews and access to an IS-05 JSON tree view for both the Qx and QxL.
The release also provides the Qx and QxL with optional PCAP utility and selectable display of either ATC-LTC or ATC-VITC for mixed ANC timecode environments. The QxL now has the option for detection and analysis of 444 Extended UHD (EUHD) video formats for LED wall and graphics card applications.
New features also include an updated NMOS receiver for Qx/QxL, which provides more detailed information on the state of the NMOS API to assist with the analysis and debug of NMOS interoperability.
In addition, QxL now includes an NMOS sender to accompany the comprehensive 2110-20/30/31/40 generator with support for both 422 and 444 video formats in 2110-20. A 25G full line rate 4GB PCAP capture tool for QxL (10G line rate and 1GB PCAP for Qx) is now available as a PCAP licence. The tool provides a range of options for capture of live IP traffic on either a single or dual media interface while in 2110 mode. The QxL can also now both generate and analyse 100 and 12-bit PSF formats in ST2110
Remote operation is also said to be improved, with the ability to operate screen capture and PCAP remotely while running VNC.
The Qx Series is available in two platforms, the Qx and QxL, both with a common look and feel, providing an accessible user interface and intuitive toolsets for full operational flexibility and migration from an SDI to an IP-centric operation.
Phillip Adams, CEO, Phabrix, commented: “V4.5 for the Qx and QxL is a milestone release, adding ground-breaking new features in the test and measurement market. Our customers want business and operational flexibility, as they now have many different requirements as their systems fragment; there is no one-size-fits-all. Offering unparalleled price performance, with IP, audio, QC and engineering data toolsets as standard, and with the flexibility to apply a range of advanced licences, the Qx Series is continually evolving to meet the needs of the market, future-proofing our customers’ investment. We can’t wait to show our customers what’s next.”
