Laval, Quebec (April 10th, 2017) —Embrionix, a global leader in broadcast video, invites interested parties for a full TR-03 / ST2110 SFP demonstration at NAB 2017. Multiple embrionix SFP based platforms will be on display for the show this year at Booth N4520, showing the power and flexibility packed into embrionix advanced emSFP modules. With ST2110 currently under ratification by SMPTE, Embrionix continues parallel developments in order to be on par with the industry, and to execute release in accordance with the standard.
“We want to ensure interoperability not only with IP switch manufacturers, but also with all manufacturers and developers working towards a unified standard.”, said Denis Pare, VP of sales at Embrionix. “Embrionix plays a key role with our SFP technology because of where, and how we apply our technology in system infrastructures. SFP based infrastructures will now have the flexibility to change between standards, between formats, and between hardware infrastructures with a simple SFP swap, configuration, or firmware upgrade.”
In order to successfully deploy Broadcast and Media production in an IT world using Commercial Of The Shelf (COTS) equipment, the video, audio, and metadata essences of any SDI signals must be encapsulated separately. The TR-03 / ST2110 standard is working towards exactly that by migrating broadcast video workflows and concepts into the world of IP.
Embrionix development teams are hard at work, focusing on what can be done today. “It is a bit counterproductive sometimes as we have to undo what we have been developing.”, says Renaud Lavoie, President and CEO of Embrionix “However, this is the only way we will be able to offer a TR-03 / ST2110 Gateway SFP to the market as soon as the standard is ratified. We are on top of the standard and present at all interop tests and PoC’s for exactly this reason.”
This eliminates the need for proprietary gateway frames, and more specifically, for Top-of-Rack hardware platforms. Embrionix emSFP modules provides broadcasters and telecommunication companies a drastic reduction for cost of ownership, power consumption and cooling, cabling, and installation.
