Embrionix to Debut Miniaturized emFUSION-6 UHD-IP Standalone Gateway at IBC 2018

These tiny gateways offer a simple and cost-effective way to ensure a smooth interconnection of baseband equipment within a facility, supporting all resolutions from SD to UHD-IP.

Embrionix Design will debut its miniaturized emFUSION-6 UHD-IP standalone gateway, which is designed to interconnect multiple remotely located devices over IP. Targeted at 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 user’s changing needs.

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.

The emFUSION-6 hangs neatly off the back of a display monitor and easily controlled through Ember+, RESTful or NMOS protocols.

The company also announced it is shipping its miniaturized emSFP SMPTE ST2110 IP-to-SDI gateways with clean and quiet switching.The company will demonstrate these software-defined emSFPs at IBC2018. For broadcasters transitioning to IP, the new patent-pending technology provides smooth switching of any IP signal between sources for a stable viewing experience.

“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. 

Embrionix is an associate of ASPEN Community and the AIMS Alliance.
