A First From Embrionix: All-IP HD/UHD emSFP Microservice Platform Unveiled At IBC 2018

Amsterdam, IBC 2018, Stand 8B.37   ̶   September 13 , 2018 ̶  Embrionix announced today it will unveil its patented All-IP emSFP Microservice Platform at its IBC 2018 Stand 8B.37. This latest addition to the company’s family of the patented software-defined gateways, is capable of processing up to two 4K UHD SMPTE ST2110/ST2022-7 signals and offers various processing microservices including frame Sync, up/down/cross converter, downscaler, color correction, audio shuffling, video/audio/metadata timing adjustment, and all-IP quad split among other functions.

“The All-IP emSFP can be installed in any IP switch and virtualized,” said Renaud Lavoie, Embrionix CEO. “Our All-IP emSFP platform enables customers to add a simple, miniaturized HD or UHD microservice anywhere in their IP infrastructure without deploying new frames and cards.  At IBC this year we will show the ALL-IP emSFP with a downscale microservice, which enables a proxy from a 4K UHD ST2110 signal for monitoring applications.”

In addition to the new 4K ST2110 downscaler, Embrionix will demonstrate the Quad-Split microservice in action: “This microservice, first announced at NAB 2018, will be demonstrated running on five All-IP emSFPs. Each emSFP will run a quad-split to create a sixteen-image multiview. The demo will focus on how simplicity and small footprint are essential to what our customers expect in a new generation of multiviewers,” added Lavoie.
