      Ideal for quality control applications, the Rx 500A is an ultra-compact 2 channel 2K/3G/HD/SD-SDI video/audio analyzer and monitoring solution (dual inputs per analyzer). The 1/2 1RU frame can also provide signal generation for video and audio. Up to 16 instruments can be displayed per channel for video analysis and physical layer testing via an external monitor. With multiple advanced diagnostics tools, including Real-time Eye and Jitter physical layer analysis instruments plus closed caption, loudness and Dolby monitoring, Rx 500 is ideal for OB trucks, broadcast facilities and video technology manufacturers.

      Rx 500 enables faster, intermittent fault finding using video and audio capture to help diagnose problems. The capture can be triggered automatically when faults are identified by the analyzer, according to user-defined criteria. Fault diagnosis is also quickened by the Rx 500's remote access capability, which allows engineers to monitor and analyze video via a web browser from any location.

      Workflows are optimized with ultra-flexible, user-defined instrument display layouts. Up to 16 instruments can be displayed simultaneously, at sizes ranging from full screen down to 1/16 screen. In multichannel monitoring environments, channel identification is simplified with a dedicated window color per channel. Monitoring configurations can be built to suit individual operators and key applications, with rapid recall of layout pre-sets for fast turnarounds. Up to 99 presets are available to suit even the largest facility.
