Embrionix Debuts emFUSION™-6 UHD-IP Gateway At IBC 2018
Versatile Miniaturized emFUSION Interconnects Multiple Remotely Located Devices Over IP, Ideal For Remote Production Scenarios
At IBC 2018, Stand 8B.37 Embrionix will debut its miniaturized emFUSIONtm-6 UHD-IP standalone gateway designed to interconnect multiple remotely located devices over IP. Ideal for remote broadcast production scenarios, the emFUSION-6 is software defined, and easily repurposed to serve as an IP processor, up/down/cross converter, IP multiviewer, IP clean switch or encapsulator with frame sync, depending on the broadcaster’s changing needs. “Within a SMPTE ST2110 remote production scenario, broadcasters still need to interface with surrounding source and destination media devices that are not yet IP native, ” said Louis Caron, Embrionix director of product management. “This tiny gateway offers a simple and cost-effective way to ensure a smooth interconnection of baseband equipment within the system, supporting all resolutions from SD to UHD-IP. ”
The compact emFUSION
-6 optimizes a 25GE link to drive 2 x UHD or up to 4 x HDMI 1080p display monitors over IP without compromising frame rate or resolution. Optional clean and quiet switching is available on de-encapsulation. The emSFP-based I/Os of this low-footprint, light-weight and versatile gateway can also be easily reconfigured to permit up to 6 x POV camera returns with control of pan/tilt/zoom commands. Signal return is then carried out over just one fiber link ? reducing extensive cabling and streamlining costs. Hitless redundancy (ST2022-7) can also be provided through dual network connectivity, and optional frame synchronization on encapsulation eliminates the need for genlocking cameras (see image below). The emFUSION-6 hangs neatly and practically off the back of a display monitor and easy control is achieved through Ember+, RESTful or NMOS protocols.
Embrionix provides very compact, high-density IP gateways, 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 (including SMPTE ST2110, ST2022-6, ST2022-1/2, HDMI, composite video).
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 decapsulator. These miniaturized devices can be installed directly inside 10GE, 25GE COTS IP switches or inside company’s 1RU emMODULAR aggregation frame and can convert any SDI legacy equipment within an IP network. Embrionix also offers a series of standalone, compact gateways tailored to monitor and format-convert IP signals.
With headquarters located outside of Montreal Canada, Embrionix has design, research & development, and sales offices located in countries 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 www.embrionix.com
