Sx TAG with its SFP, SDI and analogue I/O offers versatility in a handheld device. It is ideal for IP, 3G/HD/SD-SDI, optical SDI, HDMI and analogue test and measurement as well as AES eye analysis, for applications demanding true mobility and ease of use.
The Sx TAG’S SFP+ cage supports coaxial and optical 3G/HD/SD-SDI, HDMI, and 10G-IP I/O. Coupled to the TAG’s existing SDI, CVBS, AES and balanced audio I/O a vast array of signal generation, analysis and conversion capabilities are provided including encap/decap of ST 2110-20/30/31/40 flows to/from an SDI gateway with ST2059 PTP, AMWA NMOS IS-04/IS-05/IS-08, as well as ST 2022-6.
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.
AV Delay Generation and Analysis offers a 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.
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.
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 two hours, and can also be powered by the mains to offer flexible operation around facilities.
