***Embrionix emSFP gateway selected by Globosat for upcoming sports event - 2016-04-14

Laval, Quebec (April 14th, 2016) — Embrionix, the leader in video SFP and advanced video emSFP and IP gateway products, is proud to announce that Globosat has selected the advanced emSFP gateway and Embrionix new emVIEW 2022-6 in their coverage of the summer games in Brazil. This marks a significant evolution in the usage of COTS switches in combination with media transport. Embrionix is proud to be part of this stepping stone in collaboration with Globosat.

“We are thrilled to be part of Globosat’s system for this innovative project which represents a forward-thinking way of covering live events,” said Renaud Lavoie, Chief Executive Officer at Embrionix. “By taking advantage of IP infrastructures, signals can be shared across different devices and services in a more efficient way. Embrionix is perfectly positioned to contribute with core IP solutions to enable these deployments”, added Renaud Lavoie.

The Embrionix emSFP-GATEWAY ST2022 gateway module is the world’s smallest gateway converter available on the market; the modules are based on a SFP form factor and can be integrated in other broadcast equipment to provide a bridge between SDI and IP or they can be installed directly inside IP COTS switches. This means that the same COTS equipment can integrate sources with IP or SDI formats. The modules can be configured with various encapsulating formats such as ST-2022-6, AIMS and Aspen.

“From the get go, Globosat had decided to build an IP infrastructure to cover this event. The use of Commercial Off The Shelf IP switch was prime in this deployment as we wanted to make this investments future proof, flexible to any kind of signals, able to scale efficiently and quick implementation as bricks and pieces approach. The beauty of the Embrionix devices was that could fit directly inside the switch reducing the quantity of external equipment required to make the conversion from SDI to IP.” said Alex Torres from Globosat.

“In addition to the gateways, Embrionix could provide a mean to ingest the multiviewer outputs into the IP network and monitor any IP stream from the network on standard HDMI monitors. This was possible using the emFUSION and emVIEW products. These modules are practical with a small form factor adapting to the displays, allowing to monitor any multiviewer output everywhere, also using SMPTE-2022-6.” completed Raphael Severo from Globosat .

Embrionix will be showcasing the emVIEW, emFUSION and the emSFP-GATEWAY at NAB 2016, Booth N5116, demonstrating the flexibility and possibilities for COTS and emSFP modules.
