Lynx Technik selects PHABRIX Qx for major test & measurement upgrade
Stefan Gnann, CEO, Lynx Technik, said, “Lynx Technik AG is well known for rigorous 100%-QA testing on the products we deliver to customers. As technical requirements are changing, with 12G processing, AES requirements and customers transitioning to IP workflows, we needed to replace our legacy testing equipment with the latest and best test system – so we chose the PHABRIX Qx.”
Qx is the world’s first fully flexible rasterizer for hybrid IP/SDI analysis and video/audio monitoring, offering the latest hybrid IP/SDI test and measurement tools for environments that require 4K/UHD (12G/6G/3G-SDI), HD-SDI as well as SMPTE ST 2110, ST 2022-7, ST 2059 (PTP), AMWA NMOS and ST 2022-6 formats. The instrument set includes tools for rapid fault diagnosis, compliance monitoring and product development.
The Qx rasterizer offers media analysis for broadcast operator HD-SDI environments, with picture view, waveform analyzer, vectorscope, 32 channel audio metering and ANC status as standard. The fully flexible architecture offers upgrades for UHD/4K-SDI, SMPTE 2110 and ST 2022-6, HDR, Audio and Video generation as well as engineering grade data view and ANC packet inspection. The Qx also supports AES IO, with four versatile bi-directional unbalanced interfaces. It can also handle audio conversion from SDI input to AES output for both PCM and Dolby encoded audio, and AES input signals can be routed to other AES outputs providing a single loop output or up to 3 copy outputs.
Lynx Technik already had a Qx rasterizer in its development lab, so already had a good understanding of its capabilities. This unit now joins the three new systems in the test department.
“PHABRIX provides reasonably priced, future-proofed solutions that offer exceptional value for money. The Qx gives us the IP-ready capabilities we need, and it is also easy to use,” added Gnann.
