Field Report: CBC/Radio-Canada Integrates Embrionix ST 2110 IP Conversion in New Facility Core

Software-Defined Embrionix emSFP Gateways are selected by CBC for efficient SDI-to-IP conversion and because they have the ability to be repurposed for future needs.

Embrionix recently announced that the CBC/Radio-Canada has selected its miniaturized, software-defined emSFP HD and UHD SDI-to-IP gateways to be deployed within the core IP infrastructure of the new Maison de Radio-Canada Montreal state-of-the-art broadcasting facility.

“Embrionix with their technology enables us to future-proof our IP investments and streamline costs while reducing our footprint and energy consumption,“ said Francois Legrand, Senior Director, Core Systems Engineering at CBC/Radio-Canada. “Their tiny SDI-to-IP gateways integrate directly into COTS IP switches and can be controlled by third party control software through various methods such as open APIs, AMWA IS-04/05 and Ember+, so we optimize space, consume less energy, curtail equipment purchases and facilitate integration into large- scale systems. Each gateway can also be repurposed as a frame sync, IP clean switch, up/down/cross converter or other IP-to-IP processing tool depending on our future needs.”

“Embrionix brings more than eight years of experience and expertise in media-over-IP to this new collaboration with CBC/Radio-Canada,” said Renaud Lavoie, Embrionix CEO. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with their world-class team on this important ST2110 project where our gateways will be used in their core IP infrastructure.”
