***12G/6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI video SFP introduction

12G-SDI/6G-SDI/3G-SDI/HD-SDI/SD-SDI SFP with eye monitoring VIDEO SFP Description

The 11.88G (UHD) market is surging with interest, and demand is growing fast for new technologies to transport the 11.88G in an effective way. Exemples include temporary methods such as multiple links, 4x 3G-SDI or 2x 6G-SDI. A new generation of product will soon support the 11.88G -SDI. The 11.88G dual stream video Coax VIDEO SFP (emVIDEO SFP) and the 11.88G dual stream video Optical VIDEO SFP series provide the optimal solution for this demand, transporting the 11.88G SDI rate (up to 4K120) wihtin the well known VIDEO SFP standard. Embrionix will release the 11.88G-SDI dual channel VIDEO SFPs (emVIDEO SFP) at NAB2014 providing a 24Gbps interface for 4K120. This new product will allow customers to decide between the coaxial version (limited in distance) or the optical version to reach longer distance and benefit from the low cost fiber optical cable. The 11.88G dual stream video Coax VIDEO SFP (emVIDEO SFP) and the 11.88G dual stream video Optical VIDEO SFP (emVIDEO SFP) series are drop in replacements for the typical Fiber optic VIDEO SFP and 3G-SDI, 6G-SDI coaxial VIDEO SFP widely used in our industry today. This gives users the ability to mix and match a variety of connectors and video standards on a single platform and be future proofing a variety of IO's. Finally, the self contained architecture of the 11.88G dual stream video Coax VIDEO SFP (emVIDEO SFP) removes the added cost and time involved to meet return loss, cable length, and pathological requirements.

Embrionix video VIDEO SFP modules

always ensure your video interface will meet and exceed all broadcast video standards. All emVIDEO SFP's are carefully designed to support the pathological signals. The pathological signal is a result of the encoding scheme of the SMPTE standards. It is an unbalanced DC created by the encoding scheme of the SDI. The Embrionix design team is familiar with these effects, and have made the emVIDEO SFP immune to the pathological signal. By using the emVIDEO SFP, you remove the worry of pathological support, and can focus on your core technology and platform.
