***Embrionix demonstrated SMPTE 2022-6 emSFP in COTS switches, France - 2015-06-18

SMPTE2022-6 encoder to SMPTE2022-6 decoder SFP Demonstration (2022-6 SFP)

Boulogne, France (2015-06-18) — Embrionix, the worldwide leader in advanced SFP and emSFP development, demonstrated the integration of SMPTE 2022-6 emSFP+ in a full IP environment. The demonstration presented in France consisted of an SMPTE 2022-6 encoder SFP+ directly connected into an IP switch and an SMPTE 2022-6 decoder SFP+ plugged in a second switch. Showcasing an end-to-end SDI path using a 2022-6 encapsulation for transport over an IP network. Embrionix new emONE platform is now capable of integrating real time 2022-5, -6, -7 processing functionalities in a small SFP footprint (emSFP / emSFP+).

The Embrionix SMPTE 2022-6 gateway is the world’s smallest gateway available on the market; it can be integrated in standard SDI products to bridge the gap to IP or directly in IP switches enabling the use of COTS switches.

“Embrionix is pleased to show the integration of the SMPTE 2022-6 gateway in standard COTS switches and in standard SDI products. For the migration to IP from the existing SDI infrastructures, the SMPTE 2022-6 SFP could help end customers to bridge the gap to IP and the gateway SFP can be a cost effective solution for OEM and end customers”, said Sarkis Abrahamian, VP Business development at Embrionix.
“With the new era of SDI to IP platforms, the end customers will deal with multiple codecs, J2K, AVCI, VC-2 and TICO compression, as well as with uncompressed video over IP. This plurality of codecs could be complex for end customers to manage. With the emONE powered emSFP, this complexity goes away quickly”, added Abrahamian.
The SMPTE 2022-6 encoder and decoder demonstration follow shortly after the world's first J2K decoder in an SFP form factor announcement. Both of these emSFP solutions are developed using the emONE platform. Embrionix has focused its expertise and development to release the industry's smallest processing engine, by integrating it directly into the SFP at the edge.

Embrionix demonstrated the SMPTE-2022-6 SFP technology in France in collaboration with OBV.TV and Extreme Networks. Embrionix was also presenting in more than 40 booths at NAB this year, demonstrating the flexibility and possibilities around our SFP and emSFP modules.
