***Embrionix launch the emQUAD, the world first ST2110 quad split at IBC2017

Laval, Quebec, September 11, 2017— Embrionix, leader in video over IP solutions and manufacturer of SFP based SDI to IP converters, will be launching at IBC2017 the world first SMPTE 2110 (ST2110) standalone quad split processor in emVIEW and in SFP+ form factor.  

The emQUAD transform your simple HDMI or SDI monitor into an IP (ST2110) quad viewer. The miniature adaptor can be installed at the back of the monitor receiving the IP signal via optical fiber removing the need for an additional HDMI cable extenders. The emQUAD re-use the same emVIEW-7 type platform. This means, the module can be upgraded to a quad split processor by a simple change of its internal program (micro-service), leveraging the unique Embrionix emSFP “Software Defined SFP” platform capabilities.

“The new emQUAD is a natural evolution of our emVIEW product line, expending our practical and cost-effective monitoring solutions for uncompressed IP signals. This miniature converter uses one single fiber link to an IP switch to bring the four IP sources as well as control, tallies, and label information, then connects to the HDMI input of the monitor to deliver the quad view.  This ultra-lean solution processes the signals in a pure native IP without converting back to SDI, resulting in a low latency, high quality and cost-effective solution.” Said Louis Caron, Director of product development.

 “The platform uses the universal NMOS ISO-4/5 control and discovery API which is being defined by the AMWA organization. This greatly facilities the integration with third party control systems. Embrionix is very proud with the accomplishment as it is truly a game changer for the multiviewer product business. ”  added Louis Caron


The emQUAD will be on display at in the Embrionix’ stand (Hall 8 B92) at IBC 2017.  In addition, we will show case the emQUAD software inside the emSFP plugged in a COTS switch. Nowadays, the emSFP support complex functions that fits directly in IP switches.

You are also welcomed to visit our stand for a demonstration our “Software Defined SFP” solutions with ST2110, ST2022-6/7 and ST2022-1/2 gateways as well as other IP to IP processes such as SDR-HDR and NATing. Our products are omnipresent inside 40+ booths at the RAI convention center including at the AIMS IP show case.
