***Embrionix’s customers introduce 12G-SDI Coaxial and Optical modules for IBC 2014 - 2014-09-10

Laval, Quebec, September 10, 2014 — Embrionix, manufacturer of the emSFP is proud to announced the creation of 2 new product lines to support the increased demand of 12G-SDI. These modules have been developed in response to the growing increase in demand for higher data rates in 4K, 8K, and 16K video transport.

“Higher transport rates in broadcast have seen a significant increase in demand.  The target is to support 4K video transport in its raw form.  Currently this is done by combining multiple HD or 3G signals, for example 4 x 3G-SDI. Our ongoing development with content providers around the world has guided us towards the 12G-SDI SFP. This will minimize the number of cables, and increase bandwidth capacity per wavelength”, said Sarkis Abrahamian, VP business development at Embrionix. “Our coaxial 12G-SFP has been certified and tested against the preliminary ST-2082 and ST-2081 standards.

 This includes key parameters such as return loss, and eye diagram performance. With the steady increase of bandwidth requirements in production, media, and telecom industries, SFP technology continues to be the transport interface for a variety of signal types. Embrionix and several customers and partners will be showcasing this technology at IBC 2014.  Our modules will also be used in more than 30 booths at IBC this year, demonstrating the flexibility and possibilities around our SFP and emSFP modules.  For more information regarding our 12G-SDI certifications, please contact us at, or visit our website at
