EMCORE Now Shipping Advanced Optiva Next-Generation Optical Extension Cards for Real-Time 1080p HD Video Over Fiber
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., June 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EMCORE Corporation (EMKR), a leading provider of compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the fiber optic and solar power markets, announced today that it is ramping production and shipping the Opticomm-EMCORE NEXTGEN OTP-1DVI2A1SU insert cards for the Optiva platform. Since its market debut in 2011, the OTP-1DVI2A1SU has seen multiple upgrades and enhancements to make it more customizable and energy efficient, while still delivering real-time, high-bandwidth video over fiber optic transport systems for the Broadcast and Professional Audio/Visual (AV) markets. This product will be demonstrated at InfoComm 2012, June 13-15 in booth N2141 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The OTP-1DVI2A1SU provides seamless transmission of DVI or VGA video, stereo analog or digital audio, and USB KM and RS-232 serial data for control of peripherals over long or short distances from 0.5 to 70 km. This transmitter-receiver pair is ideal for applications such as large multi-screens, JumboTron, digital signage, VIP suite broadcasting, medical imaging, graphic design, movie editing, drafting, KVM workstations, animation and secure video conferencing.
Featuring the improved scaling capabilities of our proprietary Intelli-scale technology, the OTP-1DVI2A1SU seamlessly receives any analog or digital resolution and then automatically scales its output to the monitor's native resolution. This allows for easy integration and solves compatibility issues between monitors and source types. It supports graphics resolutions up to 2560x1600 / 60Hz and video resolutions up to 1080p / 60Hz without compression or degradation of picture quality.
"We continue to offer industry-leading products that rapidly scale and convert almost any format of high-resolution analog or digital video over fiber, while minimizing integration complexity and reducing installation time," said Henok Tafese, Senior Director of Business Development for EMCORE.
The full Optiva line of video, audio and data extension cards was designed to maintain lossless fiber extension between input and output signals. New signals may be added to most products through our proprietary daisy-chain technology without the need for additional fiber. The Optiva line of products also includes insert cards for up to 16 channels of multiplexing/demultiplexing, 16x16 matrix switching, optical add/drop, as well as remote system monitoring. Optiva insert cards can be installed in both 19" rackmount and compact tabletop, or wall-mountable enclosures.
The complete breadth of these Broadcast and Professional AV products will be on display at InfoComm 2012, June 13-15, booth N2141 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. For more information, please visit www.Opticomm.com , or call 626-293-3400.
