SKU: PHSXTAGC-IP Category: Tag:


Sx TAG with its SFP, SDI and analog I/O offers incredible versatility in a handheld device. It is ideal for IP, 3G/HD/SD-SDI, optical SDI, HDMI and Analogue test & measurement as well as AES eye analysis, for applications demanding true mobility and ease of use.

It provides support for SMPTE ST 2110-20/30/40 encapsulation/decapsulation with ST 2059 PTP, SDP and NMOS as well as SMPTE ST 2022-6 encapsulation/ decapsulation, using 10GE IP SFP+ modules developed by Embrionix.

Useful hybrid IP/SDI features include SDI to IP and IP to SDI gateways for both ST 2110-20/30/40 and ST 2022-6 as well as the
ability to generate an analogue reference output following the ST 2059 PTP or 2022-6 IP input.

New purchases Include PHSXM-CAGEP, PHSXO-GEN, PHSXO-IP & PHSFP-10SR-IP Software Options

Key Features

– Extensive Video Toolset

With simultaneous signal generation and analysis, its built-in core toolset includes a multi-format waveform, vectorscope and video display, plus data view and VANC/ANC inspector. Over 350 formats are supported for compliance monitoring. Signal generation offers 32 test patterns, including pathological.

– Hybrid IP and SDI

The Sx TAG’S versatile SFP handles 3G/HD/SD-SDI, optical SDI, IP, HDMI and analog composite formats. Comprehensive support is provided for modern broadcast IP systems with encap/decap of ST 2110-20/30/31/40 with IP to SDI gateway, ST 2059 PTP, AMWA NMOS IS-04/IS-05, as well as ST 2022-6.

– AV Delay Generation & Analysis

AV Delay Generation and Analysis offers an end-to-end solution for the measurement of Audio to Video differential delay through a broadcast system. The tool provides a realtime update of the differential delay between the video content and the selected audio channel pair to measure the propagation (latency) or pipeline delay.

– Ultra Portable, Rugged Design

The Sx TAG offers great mobility with a lightweight, rugged aluminium case with integral, high quality screen for instrument display and video monitoring. The generator/ analyser operates via rechargeable lithium battery for up 2 hours, and can also be powered by the mains to offer flexible operation around facilities.

– Enhanced Remote Control

The Sx TAG features a TCP/IP interface for remote control, automated testing, engineering support and fault analysis. Comprehensive status logging with custom reports, together with instrument picture capture to simplify fault finding is also included. 

– Multi-Channel Audio Analysis

The Sx TAG features support for 16-channel audio metering and bitstream generation and analysis of Dolby E, Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus. Embed a single external 48kHz synchronous AES stream into the generated video stream, as well as extract embedded audio and export it via the AES output.
