Embrionix Launches emVIRTU All-IP Core Infrastructure & Media Processing Platform

Montreal - April 8, 2019 - Embrionix announced today it will unveil at NAB Show 2019, booth N2508, its new emVIRTU all-IP core infrastructure and media processing platform. The emVIRTU’s high-density 1RU frame is packed with serious IP processing power for SD-up-to-UHD All IP production environments  ̶  with a design that minimizes energy costs and cabling while optimizing space.    

For UHD environments, the emVIRTU is designed to offer up to 64 x IP processing functions or for HD environments, up to 256 x IP processing functions in a 1RU passive frame . Users can seamlessly combine and interchange different virtual IP processing services that include frame synchronizers, down-converters, up/down/cross converters, multiviewers, and color processors – UHD and HD modules can also be deployed simultaneously.

“The emVIRTU integrates next-level emSFP IP-to-IP processing from Embrionix with dual 25GE support, and offers simple elegance in a cost-effective 1RU frame,“ said Renaud Lavoie, president and CEO at Embrionix.  “Ideal for mission-critical environments and all-IP SD-up-to-UHD production, this versatile and modular solution enables customers to build their emVIRTU processing power according to their growing needs.”

The emVIRTU can be controlled by IS04, IS05, IS08, Ember+ and RESTful API. Control synchronization and data use the same interface, minimizing cabling. A legacy out-of-band control port is supported. Aggregation bandwidth reaching up to 1.6Tb/s allows broadcasters and other users to produce high-resolution UHD, HD and 3G content efficiently and without constraints. With passive connections between the IP-to-IP processors and aggregation ports, there is virtually no point of failure. The emVIRTU also includes a redundant, hot-swappable power supply and two blocks of fans.

About Embrionix

Embrionix provides very compact, high-density IP gateways, IP signal processors, converters and IP multiviewers for broadcast video applications. The company’s innovative low-footprint solutions free up premium rack space, consume less power and close the gap between fiber optic, coaxial and emerging IP technology deployments.

The transition to IP becomes much easier with a highly optimized solution for SDI-to-IP conversion provided by Embrionix. This is made possible with the company’s miniaturized emSFP modules equipped with an IP encapsulator and de-encapsulator.  These miniaturized devices can be installed directly inside a 10GE or 25GE COTS IP switch for signal aggregation to 40/100GE ports, or inside the company’s 1RU emMODULAR aggregation frame and can convert any SDI legacy equipment within an IP network. Embrionix also offers a series of standalone, compact gateways tailored to monitor and format-convert IP signals.

With headquarters located outside of Montreal Canada, Embrionix has design, R&D and sales offices around the world.  The company’s solutions are also available through a global network of professional value added resellers.
