***Embrionix Ships Miniaturized SMPTE ST2110 IP Gateways With Clean & Quiet Switching Option

For Immediate Release

Montreal, August 7, 2018 –Embrionix announced today it is now shipping its miniaturized emSFP SMPTE ST2110 IP-to-SDI gateways with clean and quiet switching.  The company will demonstrate these software-defined emSFPs at IBC 2018, Hall 8, Stand B.37.  For broadcasters transitioning to IP, the new patent-pending technology provides smooth switching of any IP signal between sources for a stable viewing experience. 

“This low-footprint clean switch illustrates our commitment to developing technologies that empower a sustainable move to IP,” said Renaud Lavoie, Embrionix president and co-founder. “Our software-defined emSFPs can be repurposed at any time to serve our customers’ needs as a processor, up/down/cross converter, multiviewer, frame sync or clean and quiet switch  ̶  all within the same compact frame.”

Embrionix emSFP-gateways are based on a small form factor (SFP+/ SFP28) that can be installed directly inside a standard 10GE or 25GE IP switch  ̶  or within the Embrionix 25GE emMODULAR aggregation frame  ̶  drastically simplifying the gradual integration of IP and SDI equipment.
