South Korea’s Coupang Play taps Phabrix for sports QC

South Korea-based OTT company Coupang Play has tapped the broadcast tech outfit Phabrix for two of its Qx advanced rasterizers for sports quality control. 

Coupang Play selected Phabrix’s Qx rasterizers for its ability to achieve a full range of day-to-day test & measurement (T&M) tasks – such as event error logging, CC and SCTE104 monitoring, and loudness analysis.

The Qx allows Coupang Play to achieve complete QC checking of SDI signals for its international sports content, which is a hugely important aspect of its OTT services.

The Qx brings together all the advanced T&M tools required for transitioning to the next generation of video formats. Offering SDI as standard, the device provides core features such as picture view, waveform analyzer, vectorscope, 32-channel audio metering and ANC status. An optional IP toolset completes the specification of a solution that satisfies rapid-fault diagnosis, compliance monitoring and product development requirements.

Commenting on the deal Martin Mulligan, CEO, PHABRIX, said: “It is wonderful to hear that the Coupang Play team is finding its Qx advanced rasterizers to be so powerful and capable for the QC requirements of its fast-growing international sports broadcasting portfolio. Designed to suit SDI, IP and hybrid environments, the Qx is a device whose capabilities can evolve in line with the changing requirements of the broadcaster. Sports is an area of content where premium quality is always a top priority, and we are delighted that Qx is now playing an integral part in Coupang Play’s T&M infrastructure.”
