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 Analog 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.

It's ideal for checking IP 2110/2022-6/2022-7, 3G/HD/SD-SDI, optical SDI, HDMI and Analog signals. 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 and even the ability to generate an analog reference locked to ST 2059 PTP or 2022-6.

The Sx TAG IP includes an extensive Video Analysis 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.

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.

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 aluminum case with integral, high quality screen for instrument display and video monitoring. The generator/ analyzer operates via rechargeable lithium battery for up 2 hours, and can also be powered by the mains to offer flexible operation around facilities.
