***Embrionix UHD optical emSFP (SFP+) now supports all pathological signals SD up to 12G-SDI fully compliant with ST2082

Laval, Quebec, January 17th, 2018 — Embrionix, the leader in media over IP solutions (ST2110, ST2022) and the leader in high speed SDI electrical and optical SFP form-factor, has successfully created the world’s first 12G-SDI SFP that supports all the pathological video signals, from SD-SDI to 12G-SDI (ST2082).

The optical 12G UHD-SDI SFP is the first video SFP to support pathological signals from SD to UHD (SD, HD, 3G-A, 3G-B, 6G and 12G). The fiber optic modules are available in dual transmitter 12G UHD-SDI, and dual receiver 12G UHD-SDI, transceiver, single transmitter and single receiver. The transmitter models support 1310nm and 4 CWDM wavelengths.

“It is very exciting that our team accomplished such a great breakthrough for the broadcast 4K transport. To validate the robustness of a transport system, the pathological is used as a worst-case scenario. By adding pathological support, we enable our customers to deeply validate their system With a real compliant ST2082 SFP” said Louis Caron, Director Product Management.

“We are thrilled to present an optical UHD video SFP solution capable of transporting pathological signals SD-SDI up to 12G-SDI in a single fiber. We achieve a 20km distance at 12G-SDI with the pathological signals at 85C. This unique emSFP is fully in ST2082 specification, no compromised on extention ratio or receiver power. With our solution customers are sure the fiber link is in specification and they do not have any surprises”, added Caron.

Embrionix provides innovative solutions that can be integrated into equipment from various manufacturers and COTS switched. With their unique product design based on "SFPs" (Small Form-Factor Pluggable) that incorporates conversion functionality, Embrionix enables and simplifies numerous infrastructure solutions. Embrionix is advantageously positioned for a successful transition to IP due to their highly-optimized solution for SDI to IP conversion. SFP modules are installed directly inside IP switches to process the signal encapsulation and de-encapsulation. Embrionix provides a new approach in the product interface market for broadcast manufacturers. Embrionix designs and builds innovative, advanced SMPTE VIDEO SFPs; emVIEW, emFUSION, to close the gap between fiber optic deployments, coaxial deployments, and emerging technology deployments, such as HDMI, composite video, ST2022-6, ST2110, (ST2022-7) encapsulator and de-encapsulator SFP (SDI to IP SFP). By leveraging its core competencies in video broadcast, the company provides SFP modules (emSFP) with the highest level of flexibility to major broadcasters in the industry.
