CBC/Radio-Canada Chooses Embrionix Software-Defined emSFP Gateways For Efficient SDI-to-IP Conversion At New State-Of-The-Art Facility

For Immediate Release

Montreal, September 10 , 2018  ̶  Embrionix announced today that the CBC/Radio-Canada has selected its miniaturized, software-defined emSFP HD and UHD SDI-to-IP gateways, to be deployed within the core IP infrastructure of the new Maison de Radio-Canada Montreal state-of-the-art broadcasting facility. 

“Embrionix with their technology enables us to future-proof our IP investments and streamline costs while reducing our footprint and energy consumption,“ said Francois Legrand, Senior Director, Core Systems Engineering at CBC/Radio-Canada. “Their tiny SDI-to-IP gateways integrate directly into COTS IP switches and can be controlled by third party control software through various methods such as open APIs, AMWA IS-04/05 and Ember+, so we optimize space, consume less energy, curtail equipment purchases and facilitate integration into large- scale systems. Each gateway can also be repurposed as a frame sync, IP clean switch, up/down/cross converter or other IP-to-IP processing tool depending on our future needs.”

 “Embrionix brings more than eight years of experience and expertise in media-over-IP to this new collaboration with CBC/Radio-Canada,” said Renaud Lavoie, Embrionix CEO. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with their world-class team on this important ST2110 project where our gateways will be used in their core IP infrastructure.”

Note to Editors: Embrionix will exhibit at IBC 2018, Hall 8B.37 in Amsterdam, September 14-18.  Please visit the company to learn more about the Embrionix UHD SDI (single link) to 25GE IP solution to be deployed by CBC. 

In addition to the Embrionix solutions selected by CBC/Radio-Canada, the company will present its new emVIEW-3, driving 2 x HDMI 2.0 (UHD) monitors with one IP link.  This miniaturized, low-footprint, high-density gateway minimizes the number of fibers required, and contributes to lowering customers’ OPEX. Embrionix will also demonstrate its emVIEW-6 to target 2022-7 applications, including driving 4 x HDMI 1.4 monitors or 2 x HDMI 2.0 (UHD) monitors over IP without compromising frame rate or resolution.
