Phabrix has announced that its QxL 25G IP rasteriser is now shipping. Launched in April this year, the QxL inherits all the JT-NM tested features of the Qx with a common look and feel across both platforms.

Small but powerful: The rasteriser was created to address the needs of broadcast media IP networks in a compact form factor

Out of the box, this 10G/25G IP enabled rasteriser supports JT-NM TR 1001-1:2018, 2110-20 (video), 2110-30 (PCM audio), 2110-31 (AES transport), and 2110-40 (ANC media) flows all with 2022-7 Seamless IP Protection Switching (SIPS), and independent PTP slaves on both media ports for fully-redundant media network operation.

The toolset also provides support for DHCP on all IP ports, unicast DNS-SD, AMWA NMOS IS-04 Discovery and Registration, IS-05 Connection management, system resource, and network topology discovery using link layer discovery protocol (LLDP).

IP media interfaces are provided as standard and SDI media interfaces, with optional SDI Eye and jitter measurement available as a factory fitted option. The GUI provides up to 16 user-configurable windows with presets for rapid visualisation of different traffic and workflow configurations, and with the same accessible user interface as the Qx there are minimal re-training costs for existing Qx users.

The complexities of ST 2110 and NMOS operation are also presented to the user in an intuitive and accessible manner, claims the company, and a suite of operator level IP flow health and PTP monitoring features are provided with warnings and alarms.
