Embrionix will feature its range of software-defined (SMPTE ST 2110) IP conversion and processing solutions geared toward simplifying the path toward and during the transition to IP. The company will highlight its emVIRTU IP-to-IP media processing and core infrastructure platform, as well as its emFUSION and emVIEW IP gateways. IBC2019 attendees also will have the chance to explore the Embrionix emSFP range of SFP-based IP gateways and to take a look at the company’s emQUAD and emSFP-QUAD multiviewers.
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 from Embrionix 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. The platform offers an efficient, passive-frame design that allows users to minimise energy costs and cabling while optimising space. With aggregation bandwidth reaching up to 1.6Tb/s, the platform is also designed to allow broadcasters and other users to produce high-resolution UHD, HD and 3G content efficiently and without constraints.
For UHD environments, the platform is designed to offer up to 64 IP processing functions from its small footprint. The Embrionix platform supports a modular approach, enabling the selective addition of virtualised processing functionalities such as frame synchronisation, up/down/cross-conversion and multiviewer capabilities.
emFUSION and emVIEW IP gateways
Embrionix will showcase the company’s compact emFUSION-6 SDI-to/from-IP and IP-to-HDMI gateway with support for HD, 3G and SMPTE ST 2110 UHD. The software-defined, standalone gateway is ideal for remote broadcast production, interconnecting SDI signals to an IP infrastructure via a single 25GE aggregation link or via dual links for (SMPTE ST 2022-7) hitless redundancy. The emFUSION-6 supports up to three channels of encapsulation and three channels of de-encapsulation. Black burst can be extracted from the PTP to synchronise 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 miniaturised emSFP SMPTE ST 2110 all-IP-to-SD/HD/3G down-converter from Embrionix 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 will be demonstrated at IBC2019 with a variety of new all-IP up/cross-conversion options.
emQUAD and emSFP-QUAD multiviewers
Embrionix will showcase its versatile emQUAD quad-split multiviewers and its miniaturised 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.
