7thSense, a global leader in media serving, pixel processing, show control and pixel management technologies, has selected two PHABRIX QxP portable waveform monitors for vigorous testing and compliance verification of its advanced ST 2110 solutions.

The QxP features an integral 3U multitouch LCD screen and an integral V-Mount or Gold-Mount battery plate, integral mains PSU and 12V external DC input.

The waveform monitor supports up to 12G-SDI and 25G IP workflows, including Extended UHD formats option offering analysis and generation of UHD/4K YCbCr/RGB 444 8/10/12bit formats in the range 47.95P – 60P.

Dr Anton Grounds, PhD, Senior Electronics Engineer at 7thSense says: “In the realm of evolving standards like ST 2110 it’s vital to employ multiple references during testing and verification because of the limitations of self-assessment.

“At 7thSense we’re at the vanguard of the ST 2110 standard, working with 25Gbit/s streams of 12-bit 444 4096×2160 60p uncompressed media,”.

He adds: “These rates represent a paradigm shift in the uncompressed network media, and currently only PHABRIX offers a proven set of test equipment that aligns with our rigorous testing needs.

“Our team is crafting senders, receivers and bridges that utilize ST 2110 media streams, and the versatility of PHABRIX analyzers enables us to evaluate all operational modes and data channels using a single QxP unit.”

7thSense is employing the QxPs as its default sources and receivers. It enables its team to ascertain compliance with ST 2110 network media specifications for an array of products – from media servers to pixel processors.

In addition, the instruments help validate the company’s PTP and media network compliance.

7thSense has already deployed the QxPs during a number of major projects – including the creation of the world’s first 12-bit 444 4096×2160 60p uncompressed video network media system for a forthcoming large-scale attraction.

Dr Grounds is also effusive about the level of collaboration experienced with PHABRIX throughout the upgrade and implementation process, noting that it has “significantly streamlined” the company’s testing & verification processes.

Martin Mulligan, CEO of PHABRIX, says: “It has been great working with 7thSense, a long-term customer of our solutions, to support its ground-breaking ST 2110 workflows.

“The company has always been at the cutting-edge of technology, working on some of the most innovative live event and visitor attraction projects in the world.”

PHABRIX will be demonstrating the QxP at IBC 2023, (Amsterdam RAI, 15 – 18 September) on stand 10.C01.
