Modern: The unit can evolve the firmware with UHD, QC, engineering and HDR options

The QxL inherits all the JT-NM features of the company’s Qx with a common look and feel across both platforms.

Out of the box, the new10G/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 LLDP. IP media interfaces are provided as standard, while SDI media interfaces with optional SDI eye and jitter measurement are available as a factory fitted option.

Phillip Adams, CEO, Phabrix, said: “QxL is amongst the first devices of its type for which SDI is an option – not part of the core. It therefore delivers an unparalleled price performance entry point for the modern HD IP broadcast ops user with the flexibility to evolve the firmware with UHD, QC, engineering and HDR options.”
