Embrionix Debuts At IBC 2015 With A Range Of SFP Solutions For 4K And IP - 2015-09-11

Latest SMPTE 2022-6 SFP deployed In Axon’s Live IP production demonstrations at this week’s show

 

IBC, Amsterdam. September 11, 2015: Embrionix (Stand 6.B02), provider of advanced video Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) solutions, makes its debut at IBC this week showcasing its latest range of SFPs for 4K and IP.

The Canadian-based company designs and builds innovative, advanced SMPTE VIDEO SFPs to close the gap between fiber optic deployments, coaxial deployments, legacy composite deployments and emerging technologies, such as HDMI and SDI-to-IP SFPs. By leveraging its core competencies in video broadcast, Embrionix provides SFP modules with the highest level of flexibility to major broadcasters worldwide and works with leading manufacturers to help them avoid long development cycles.

At the show this week, the team will present SMPTE 2022-6 decoder and encoder, JPEG2000 and uncompressed 4K (12G) emSFP. These modules address all the demands for the latest standards in our industry.

Visitors can see the latest S2022-6 SFP’s in action in Hall 10 where broadcast infrastructure supplier Axon is using to them demonstrate live video over Ethernet (Stand 10.A21). In an innovative proof-of-concept, the SFPs will convert S2022-6 to SDI and vice versa. The units also feature with Axon’s SynView networked multiviewer as part of Axon’s contribution to the EBU & VRT LiveIP demonstration, a proof-of-concept based on the world’s first live IP studio (Stand 10.F20).

“We’ve worked closely with Embrionix to develop SFP-based solutions (SDI, fiber, HDMI, CVBS) for our Synapse signal processing range and our latest modules are executed with I/O-panels and cages that can hold SFP’s. This opens up greater possibilities for flexible and cost-effective conversion,” says Jan Eveleen, Axon’s CEO. “A number of customers have requested a solution for live video over Ethernet through SMPTE 2022-6, so it was natural for us to turn to Embrionix and we’re delighted to be able to use their SFPs in our Proof-of-Concept demonstrations this week.”

“Axon is one of the first of our customers to integrate our ST2022-6 SFP into their product range,” said Renaud Lavoie, CEO of Embrionix. “Through companies like Axon, broadcasters can now move to video over Ethernet without a major cost investment – it’s great to be able to actively demonstrate this together at IBC.”
