***Embrionix emSFP SDI-IP & emVIEW Gateways Used by EVS Within IBC TV Full IP Remote News Production

Montreal, August 22, 2018 - IBC TV, the official channel of the highly influential IBC show will be rolling out a fully IP-connected live production workflow driven once again by EVS technology and which will integrate this year, SDI-IP conversion by Embrionix, Stand 8B.37. In this tenth year that IBC TV partners with EVS to deliver IBC-related news and interviews live to screens throughout the RAI exhibition center and to the IBC TV website.

Deployed across several locations within the RAI, and integrating technologies from several vendors, including Embrionix, the EVS-IBC TV production will operate this year using the SMPTE ST2110 standard. Embrionix emSFPTM and emVIEWTM gateway solutions will be used to streamline the remote IP production.

Both the emSFP and emVIEW gateways can interface to a 10GE, 25GE and 100GE network, drastically simplifying the gradual integration of IP-SDI and/or IP-HDMI equipment. Because Embrionix gateways are software defined, they can be repurposed at any time into a processor, up/down/cross converter, multiviewer, encapsulator with frame sync, or clean switch depending on the broadcaster’s changing needs. Easy control is provided through Ember+, RESTful or NMOS protocols. 

The low-footprint emSFP SDI-IP gateways provide multiple practical interfaces and can be inserted directly inside 10G SFP/SFP+ cage. The miniaturized gateways are equipped with an IP encapsulator and decapsulator, and offer support for all resolutions from SD to UHD-IP.

The emVIEW family of compact standalone gateways can receive video IP flows and control packets from a single fiber optical link or dual optical link fiber in a redundant (ST2022-7) system. The compact emVIEW hitless 4K/UHD IP ST2110 to HDMI 2.0 converter is capable of receiving any type of senders, whether narrow or wide profile.

The IBC TV workflow and newsroom market application area can be found on EVS stand 8.B90 and will run throughout IBC2018, which takes place between 14-18 September at the RAI Amsterdam.
