EMCORE Corp. (EMKR) To Begin Shipping Optivia Next-Generation Optical Extension Cards For Real-Time 1080p HD Video Over Fiber Optic Networks

|Includes: EMCORE Corporation (EMKR)

EMCORE, a leading provider of compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the fiber optic and solar power markets, today announced that it will begin production and shipping the Opticomm-EMCORE NEXTGEN OTP-1DVI2A1SU insert cards for the Optiva platform. After debuting in 2011, the OTP-1DVI2A1SU has been upgraded and enhanced several times in an effort to make it more energy efficient and customizable without sacrificing its ability to deliver real-time, high-bandwidth video over fiber optic transport systems for the Broadcast and Professional Audio/Visual (NYSE: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 smooth 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 .5 to 70 km. This pairing of transmitter and receiver is the optimum configuration 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.

Additionally, the OTP-1DVI2A1SU uses it improved scaling capabilities of our proprietary Intelli-scale technology to smoothly receive any analog or digital resolution and then automatically scales its output to the native resolution of the monitor. This capability delivers easy integration and solves compatibility problems between monitors and source types. It supports graphics resolutions up to 2560×1600 / 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 entire Optiva line of video, audio, and data extension cards was designed to maintain lossless fiber extension between input and output signals. The line includes the flexibility to add new signals to most products through EMCORE's 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, 16×16 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.
