Laval, Quebec, December 13th, 2017— Embrionix, the leader in video over IP solutions, and manufacturer of the world's first SDI to IP solution in an SFP+ form-factor, has successfully added the Ember+ control protocol.
The Ember+ protocol enables orchestrator systems to control the SFP+ processing device (emSFP), as well as emVIEW, emFUSION, emQUAD and emMODULAR.
“The full range of Embrionix IP products were controlled via RESTful API as defined by the AMWA group. Our customers’ requested Ember+, so we listened and added Ember+ protocol. Frankly, it was an easy decision to make. When we looked at the benefits that the protocol was bringing to our customers, it was a no-brainer. This is used by multiple control softwares, and the protocol is well defined.” Said Louis Caron, Embrionix Director of product development.
“As an example, using Embrionix ST2110 devices, a broadcaster can now shuffle audio channels by routing any of 8 audio multicast streams with no additional multiplexing devices or any other routing mechanisms. Ember+ protocol allows this functionality in IP. A simple emSFP inserted into a Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) switch makes this easily achievable with Ember+ enabled products.” Said Caron.
The implementation of Ember+ into the Embrionix IP solutions is native, without any translation protocol. That makes the devices compliant with any Ember+ control and monitoring system. Embrionix will release the Ember+ for general availability in January 2018. Hitless ST2110 will also be part of that release.
Embrionix provides innovative solutions that can be integrated into equipment from various manufacturers and COTS switched. With their unique product design based on "SFPs" (Small Form-Factor Pluggable) that incorporates conversion functionality, Embrionix enables and simplifies numerous infrastructure solutions. Embrionix is advantageously positioned for a successful transition to IP due to their highly-optimized solution for SDI to IP conversion. SFP modules are installed directly inside IP switches to process the signal encapsulation and de-encapsulation. Embrionix provides a new approach in the product interface market for broadcast manufacturers. Embrionix designs and builds innovative, advanced SMPTE VIDEO SFPs; emVIEW, emFUSION, to close the gap between fiber optic deployments, coaxial deployments, and emerging technology deployments, such as HDMI, composite video, ST2022-6, ST2110, (ST2022-7) encapsulator and de-encapsulator SFP (SDI to IP SFP). By leveraging its core competencies in video broadcast, the company provides SFP modules (emSFP) with the highest level of flexibility to major broadcasters in the industry.
