L2Tek announces availability of a new family of SDI-to-IP emSFP™ converter modules designed to encapsulate high-performance uncompressed SDI signals into a SMPTE ST-2022-6 stream or decapsulate a ST-2022-6 stream to an uncompressed SDI signal.
Manufactured by Embrionix, the modules are the smallest of their kind available in the market and can be installed directly into IP network routers, switches and SDI platforms. This makes it easier for broadcasters and production companies to design cost effective, flexible and scalable systems they can convey high bit rate media signals with IP (HBRMT) functionality.
The ST 2022-6 emSFP (SDI on host) has a 10GE (10GBase-LX) port for direct use with HD video switchers and routers. The ST 2022-6 emSFP (10GE on host) has SDI I/O and a 10GE (10GBASE-X) host connection for use with standard COTS IP routers and switches.
The ST-2022-6 emSFP provides module identification information and configuration through an in-band REST API or a two-wire serial interface. It is also a ‘hot-pluggable’ solution, allowing for field system upgrade and maintenance.
The ST-2022-6 emSFPTM (10GE host) is interchangeable with other MSA SFP+. The ST-2022-6 emSFPTM (SDI host) is interchangeable with Embrionix electrical video/converters emSFP/emSFP+, improving product flexibility for users.
Evaluation samples and more technical information and support for customers in the UK, Nordics and Netherlands are available from L2Tek.
