Embrionix Guide to IP

Embrionix provides a wide selection of products converting SDI to IP, ideal for the ever-changing broadcast industry. Its innovative conversion solutions use a ‘SFP' (Small Form-factor Pluggable) design, with products including 12G-SDI coax and optics, and SDI to IP gateways. Our handy tool helps explain some of the solutions available.

IP infrastructure

Future proof broadcast infrastructures start with an IP core deployment. It consists of a Spine and Leaf type architecture or a simple core switch achieving the signal distribution. As you still need to interface with surrounding source and destination media devices that are not yet IP native, you will need conversion devices to converge to your IP network. Embrionix provides a selection of products converting SDI to IP as well as other SFP modules with enhanced capabilities for native IP devices. By integrating the conversion and processing functions physically inside the IP switch, Embrionix makes the integration much simpler and cost effective in a zero-foot print.

6. emSFP Decapsulator 

The emSFP Decapsulaor converts a signal from IP to video - SDI of HDMI so you can attach existing equipment to your IP infrastructure. For example monitoring video. 

7. emSFP Encapsulator 

The emSFP Encapsulator converts a video signal (SDI/HDMI) to IP. This is a simple way to get the signal from a camera or other video device into you IP infrastructure using their native connections. 

 

 

4K UHD Production

 

Embrionix is well tooled to provide connectivity of 4k equipment over a single cable. Carrying 12G of SDI data over a single coaxial cable or over a single strength fiber, Embrionix makes 4k production a lot simpler. The solution is perfect for live events coverage as it doesn’t alter, delay or compress the video signal in the process.

4k 1 

The world's first video UHD 12G-SDI video coaxial and optical using an SFP form factor. The family is composed emSFP coaxial and emSFP optical. Both modules support a 4k resolution at 60Hz and 120Hz (dual link 12G-SDI). The UHD video SFP also supports 6G-SDI, 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, SD-SDI. The UHD video emSFP are available in transceiver, dual receivers and dual transmitters configuration with built-in reclockers. This solution is minimizing the number of cables and enable interconnection of 4K devices over a long distance. Also, available UHD 6G-SDI video coaxial SFP (EB59).

Signal Extension

Embrionix’s emVIEW, emFUSION and emEXTEND media converter enable interconnectivity of equipment located at far distances. The small media converter uses a variety of SFP modules adapting the different formats. the below graphic shows three sample applications. 1. interconnects various devices located at a distance from the core IP system using fiber. 2. allows 12G coaxial signals to reach a destination 4K away using fiber. 3. Extends the HDMI output of a Multiviewer to a monitor using fiber optic.
