ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., June 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EMCORE Corporation (Nasdaq:EMKR), a leading provider of compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the fiber optic and solar power markets, announced today a new product line to support HDBaseT video and audio extension and distribution for the Professional Audio/Visual (Pro AV) and Broadcast markets. These HDBaseT CAT5e/6 products will be demonstrated at InfoComm 2013, June 12-14 in booth 3525 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
HDBaseT technology enables the 5Play TM feature set for the delivery of uncompressed high-definition video, audio, control signals and power over a single CAT5e/6 cable. HDBaseT is simpler and more cost-effective to implement for video applications up to 100 meters, eliminating the common issues professional installers face concerning cable distance and the location of available power outlets.
The Opticomm-EMCORE HDBaseT line includes the new OTC Series of insert cards for the Optiva platform, the c-linx Series of stand-alone extenders, and the High-Definition Multimedia Matrix (HDMX) which switches, converts and extends CAT5e/6 in addition to other video formats. The OTC Series products are designed for Optiva platform 6- or 16-slot 19" rack-mount enclosures, or 1- or 2-slot tabletop, or wall-mountable enclosures and can be combined in the same frame with other Optiva family fiber optic cards. The HDMX is a multi-format, cross-point switch that supports HDBaseT inputs and outputs along with many other signal types including DVI, HDMI with HDCP, 3G HD-SDI with embedded audio, as well as analog video interfaces component, composite and VGA."Joining the HDBaseT Alliance presented us with an opportunity to launch a new product portfolio for the Pro AV market with our most advanced, complementary copper- and fiber-based solutions all in one," said Henok Tafese, Senior Director of Business Development for EMCORE. "Our new products maximize the benefits of HDBaseT with PoE (Power over Ethernet) technology to extend power through the CATx, while providing virtually unlimited display connections for multiple applications, all with reduced installation costs," said Tafese.
