PHABRIX Rx2000 overview

  • 1Description

The Phabrix Rx2000 Rackmounted Chassis with 4 Open Slots by Leader is a cost effective solution for testing and measurement with the quality and reliability established by the Phabrix brand.

The Rx range uses a Phabrix 'layering' module which sits at the heart of the system. Here, signals from each independent instrument on board are processed to provide a variety of instrument displays.

The Rx2000 comes with two 2 x 4.3" screens, one is used for picture/source identification and the other screen for control and test screens. The unit is housed in a 19" 2RU standard rack mount and provides space for up to 4 modules

Unique 'tilt-in-bay' mechanism allows the Rx2000 to be seen at various eye levels.


Modular Design
Modular means choice and with that choice is the ability to create the solution that matches each individual broadcast environment requirement. Adding modules is like adding an independent new instrument. There is no 'overhead' demand on the platform; each module has its own dedicated FPGA allowing independence of function within a connected structure. Each module is assigned a software identity when added to the system to allow upgrades throughout each connected instrument.
Broadcast Engineer's Toolset
Acknowledged as one of the industry's easiest to use interfaces, Rx instruments have been designed to fully implement the Phabrix GUI. Engineers can simply, and most importantly swiftly control their T&M instrument either through clever presets or user selectable configuration. Whether using the dual integral screens of the Rx2000 and/or the HDMI/SDI output available across the range, each instrument is never more than a two button press away from the main menu.
Remote Control
The Rx can be controlled remotely using the FTP connection and any standard web browser. The simple user interface is mirrored here to allow ease of use.
Clever 'tilt-in-bay' engineering allows the Rx2000 to be seen at various eye levels. The Rx2000 benefits from an angled slim profile, is lightweight and uses little power consumption.

Available Modules Include

Rx-A Dual Input, Single Channel Module
Dual input analyzer provides waveform, vector, picture and status displays in various screen combinations. The Rx-A can only show one source at a time and can accept the Rx-EA Eye Pattern Mezzanine module.
Rx-2A Dual Input, Dual Channel Module
Similar to the Rx-A above, the Rx-2A can show two SDI sources simultaneously.
Rx-GA Single Channel, Single Generator Module
Similar to the Rx-A above, the Rx-GA adds a single output generator. The Rx-GA includes an analyzer and generator in one module and can accept the Rx-EA Eye Pattern Mezzanine module.
Rx-EA Eye & Jitter Module
Eye pattern mezzanine module provides eye pattern and jitter measurement capabilities to the Rx2000. This option does not take up a slot; it actually installs on the Rx-A, Rx-2A and Rx-GA modules and provides eye pattern and jitter measurement capabilities for the signals being analyzed by these modules.
Rx-G Single Generator Module
Multi-format SDI generator provides a variety of test patterns, control over embedded audio signal generation and allows the use of bitmaps to upload your own test pattern.
Rx-2G Dual Generator Module
Multi-format SDI generator similar to the Rx-G above but provides 2 outputs enabling dual link and 3D (2 x HD-SDI signals) operation.

Available Options Include

Rx-03G 3G-SDI Compatibility
Adds 3G-SDI compatibility to the Rx2000 Main Unit. Once this option is added to the Rx2000, all SDI related Phabrix modules will also be compatible with 3G-SDI (in addition to HD/SD-SDI which is standard).
Rx-OEA Advanced Eye & Jitter Option
The Advanced Eye & Jitter option requires the presence of the Eye Pattern module (Rx-EA). This advanced measurements option provides an additional jitter screen and several enhancements to the eye pattern display; it is primarily focused toward broadcast equipment laboratories and manufacturing facilities who have the need for high-end analysis tools.
Rx-OSD SDI Analysis Option
The SDI analysis option provides the engineer with a detailed view of the data words contained within the SDI stream. This allows the analysis of complex faults and is particularly useful when determining compatibility issues between equipment and when debugging new product developments within an R&D environment. Detail within the active SDI stream can be viewed with continuous update. Analysis can be obtained from the generated or received SDI stream allowing quick comparison checks.
Rx-OS Command Scripts With Print Reports
This option allows a series of pre-defined actions to be run through within the Phabrix Sx using a script stored in internal memory. It can be used to automatically step through a sequence of instrument states, controlling the generator, analyzer and logging functions. A print report feature allows an internal html form to be auto filled with parameters set and subsequently downloaded and printed.
Rx-OZ Programmable Zone Plate
This option adds a range of preprogrammed zone plate patterns along with user defined controls over several parameters which can be saved to custom buffers. In use the zone plate can be used to test a range of video processing requirements using horizontal, vertical and temporal (time) controls. Temporal control is particularly useful for testing up/down converters and applications which compress signals. Aspect ratios can be tested using the horizontal and vertical controls.
Rx-OF Advanced Formats For Rx-A and Rx-GA
This option introduces a variety of new formats to the standard set of 76 currently available. 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. For broadcast manufacturers the new 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 generate and analyze signals such as SMPTE 425-B carrying 1 x 372M dual link payload.
Rx-OBD Dolby E Analysis
This option allows the display of Dolby-E 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 may be monitored from any of the SDI input embedded audio channel pairs or the AES input. In use the start menu window displays both the V Bit information and PCM values along with a snapshot of the Dolby E metadata if a Dolby E signal is present. The peak audio levels included in the Dolby-E meta data packet are displayed on the Analyzer Audio Meters page.
Rx-XOL Loudness Metering
Provides essential measurement features for monitoring and analyzing audio loudness.
Rx-OVNC Ancillary Status
Monitors and reports issues in the Vanc/Hanc areas of SDI signals.
