EMCORE Corp. (EMKR) Announces New Opticomm-EMCORE NV Series JPEG 2000 Products

|Includes: EMCORE Corporation (EMKR)

EMCORE recently announced the introduction of Opticomm-EMCORE NV Series JPEG 2000 products, which provide optimum quality and lowest latency real-time HD video distribution over Internet protocol (NYSE:IP) to the broadcast and professional audio/visual markets.

Using IP infrastructures, the NV Series sends out high-resolution 3G HD, HDMI, or DVI signals to HD monitors in one or many locations. This technology enables distribution of HD digital content from multiple sources to almost limitless displays of LAN. Having very low latency is a critical aspect of the system when video is transmitting directly from a live site to an editing studio. In the NV Series, HD video and audio signals are received by the encoder, compressed using JPEG 2000, and transmitted via an IP network with a latency of less than 50 milliseconds.

The most flexible HD matrix switching distribution system can be created when the NV Series is combined with a compatible managed Ethernet switch setup. The NV Series enables customers to move from matrix switch to managed-Ethernet switch by cascading multiple switches, so numerous displays can be located long distances from their sources while sustaining consistent 1080p video and sound quality.

The NV Series additionally allows USB data to be sent, along with high-quality HD video and audio distribution signals, to control a remote keyboard and mouse. The NV encoders and decoders can be configured through an application program interface (NYSEMKT:API) or Web server, and they can also be mounted in a 19" 1RU rack or used as a standalone unit.

Part of a complete HD video over IP solution, the new Opticomm-EMCORE NV Series JPEG 2000 products also include the HD Series MPEG-4/MPEG-2 compression/decompression products.
