PHABRIX, a British manufacturer of products for the professional broadcasters, unveiled at a Monday press conference two products that engineers can use to “personalize” their systems for different broadcast environments.
The Rx1000 rasterizer and the Rx500 half rack rasterizer allow broadcasters to add analyzers, generators, Dolby and even talk of ASI decode, says PHABRIX. In addition, the Rx1000 and Rx500 provide users the ability to output instruments using an SDI or HDMI output at 1920 x 1080 resolution across the range, PHABRIX said.
The two new rasterizers were the next development from based on its Rx2000 2U, a dual screen T&M solution, said Paul Nicholls, PHABRIX’s sales and marketing manager said. The Rx2000 has the ability to add up to 8 independent analyzers to a system, he said. “All modules fit into this product,” including analyzers and duel input single instruments.
The Rx2000 technology has resulted in the Rx1000 and the Rx500, Nicholls said. “Each of them share a common technology.” The Rx500 can take two modules, and the Rx1000 can fit four modules. Those products provide users “with a whole series of graphical reports,” he said. They are “full resolution, scalable instruments that support 3G, on this small form factor,” he added.
