***Embrionix to Provide Hands-On Demos of Its Latest Gateways and IP Media Processing Solutions at Inter BEE

Exhibiting on the DIGIcas Booth (4202), Embrionix Will Highlight Innovative Solutions That Bring Value and Flexibility to IP-Based Media Operations


LAVAL, Quebec Nov. 11, 2019 Embrionix will be offering hands-on demonstrations of its gateways and IP media processing solutions at Inter BEE 2019, which runs from Nov. 13-15 at Makuhari Messe in Tokyo. The company will exhibit its latest products, including the award-winning emVIRTU platform, on the DIGIcas booth (4202).

Embrionix products at Inter BEE 2019 will include the following:

emVIRTU IP-to-IP Media Processing Platform for HD up to UHD

The award-winning emVIRTU IP-to-IP media processing and core infrastructure platform is housed in a high-density, 1RU frame that is packed with serious IP media processing power for mission-critical and all-IP media production environments. An efficient, passive-frame design allows users to minimize energy costs and cabling while optimizing space. With aggregation bandwidth reaching up to 1.6Tb/s, the platform allows users to produce high-resolution UHD, HD, and 3G content efficiently and without constraints. For UHD environments, the Embrionix platform offers up to 64 IP processing functions. Supporting a modular approach, emVIRTU enables the selective addition of virtualized processing functionalities such as frame synchronization, up/down/cross-conversion, and multiviewer capabilities.

emFUSION and emVIEW IP Gateways

With support for support for HD, 3G, and SMPTE ST 2110 UHD, the software-defined, stand-alone emFUSION-6 SDI/HDMI-from/to-IP gateway is ideal for remote broadcast production, where it allows users to interconnect SDI signals to an IP infrastructure via a single 25GE aggregation link or via dual links for (SMPTE ST 2022-7) hitless redundancy. The compact emFUSION-6 supports up to three channels of encapsulation and three channels of de-encapsulation. Black burst can be extracted from the PTP to synchronize cameras.

The compact emVIEW IP-to-HDMI 2.0 gateway from Embrionix offers universal support for all 4K/UHD signal formats and resolutions up to 4K/UHD 60Hz/hitless redundancy, with support for any wide, linear, and narrow sender. Making the most of a 25GE IP interface (hitless), this versatile gateway guards the integrity of the 4K/UHD image on an HDMI display, regardless of signal type or format, whether from a quad ST 2110 1080p flow (Square Division or Two Sample Interleaved) or a single SMPTE ST 2110 4K/UHD flow.

emSFP SMPTE ST 2110 All-IP Down-Converter

This miniaturized emSFP SMPTE ST 2110 all-IP-to-SD/HD/3G down-converter enables 4K UHD IP content to be seamlessly viewed and monitored on a HDMI display in a lower resolution while maintaining the sharpness of the original IP signal. The unit being shown at Inter BEE has been newly enhanced with a variety of all-IP up/cross-conversion options.

emQUAD and emSFP-QUAD Multiviewers

Embrionix will feature its versatile emQUAD quad-split multiviewers and its miniaturized emSFP

multiviewers, which enable smart IP monitoring on HDMI displays. The emQUAD creates a mosaic view from four SMPTE ST 2110 streams and can be installed neatly on the back of any HDMI monitor. The emSFP-QUAD will be demonstrated creating a 16-image mosaic from SMPTE ST 2110 IP streams.

emSFP Equipped for Miniaturized J2K IP Processing

Available with two J2K encoders or J2K decoders, this new J2K-capable emSFP allows users to create a direct path from J2K to SMPTE ST 2110 for contribution feeds. By eliminating the need to convert incoming signals first to SDI and then to SMPTE ST 2110, the gateway empowers users to streamline signal flow in remote production applications while saving on power, space, and equipment costs. Installed inside a standard 10GE or 25GE IP switch, inside third-party cages, or inside the Embrionix emVIRTU all-IP processing platform, the software-defined emSFP can accept up to two independent J2K contribution feeds (in the format ST 2022-1/2, VSF TR-01) and run SMPTE ST 2110 encapsulation. The module features an extended buffer — up to 2 seconds per J2K feed — to support WAN applications. Fully COTS-oriented, it plugs quickly and easily into a switch for hassle-free installation.

“The products we’ll showcase at Inter BEE 2019 provide convenient, configurable processing and monitoring in the IP realm,” said Renaud Lavoie, Embrionix president. “We look forward to giving show attendees a firsthand look at how Embrionix products deliver valuable functionality while enabling users to lower opex with both space and power savings.”

About Embrionix

Embrionix provides very compact, high-density IP gateways, IP signal processors, converters, and multiviewers for broadcast video applications. The company’s innovative, low-footprint solutions free up premium rack space, consume less power, and close the gap between fiber-optic, coaxial, and emerging IP technology deployments.

The transition to IP becomes much easier with a highly optimized solution for SDI-to-IP conversion provided by Embrionix. This is made possible with the company’s miniaturized emSFP modules equipped with an IP encapsulator and de-encapsulator. These miniaturized devices can be installed directly inside a 10GE or 25GE COTS IP switch for signal aggregation to 40/100GE ports or inside the company’s 1-RU emMODULAR aggregation frame, and they can convert any SDI legacy equipment within an IP network. Embrionix also offers a series of stand-alone, compact gateways tailored to monitor and format-convert IP signals. The Embrionix emVIRTU All-IP Core Infrastructure and Media Processing Platform is designed to provide an extremely high-density 1RU hub packed with virtualized IP signal processing services.

With headquarters located outside of Montreal, Canada, Embrionix has design, R&D, and sales offices around the world. The company’s solutions are also available through a global network of professional value-added resellers. For more information on pricing and availability, please visit Embrionix.
