EMCORE Announces 3G HD-SDI Module Addition to Optiva® Platform Product Line

Optiva 3G HD-SDI ModuleALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico, September 8, 2008. EMCORE Corporation (NASDAQ: EMKR), a leading provider of compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the video, broadband, fiber optic, satellite, and terrestrial solar power markets, today announced the addition of SMPTE 424M and 425M compliant 3 Gb/s HD-SDI modules to the Optiva® video transport product line.

Each Optiva® OTP-1HDP module transmits two independent 3G video signals. With this signal density, up to thirty (30) 424M compliant video signals may be transmitted through a single 3RU 19? chassis. In addition to full 1080p, 50/60 Hz SMPTE 424M compliant video, the well-established SMPTE 292M and 259M, HD-SDI and SDI video broadcast formats are auto-detected and broadcast as well. Optiva® was designed to maintain quality uncompressed signal. Switching and multicasting the OTS-1HDP over the OptiLinx® Switching Platform is quick and simple, making this solution perfect for digital cinema and video signal intensive production facilities.

“Emcore’s OTP-1HDP product line, utilizing previously acquired Opticomm technology, is a high performance, next generation, complete solution for transmitting 3G HD-SDI broadcast video over long or short fiber distances on a single wavelength. Over the next several years, major broadcasters are expected to migrate both fixed production facilities and their mobile O/B facilities to 3G HD, preserving full 1080p throughout the entire production and post-production process?, said Henok Tafese, Director of Business Development of Emcore Broadband. “The desire to produce high definition content at 12-bit color depths and to provide support for R’G’B’ and 4:4:4:4 processing, is also driving these higher bandwidth requirements.?

The OTP-1HDP is offered in a standard Optiva® insert card form factor. These cards fit easily into the Optiva® 1RU and 3RU 19? rack mount enclosures, or stand-alone desktop enclosures. The 1RU and 3RU rack mount enclosures accommodate up to 4 and 16 insert cards, respectively. The desktop enclosures hold 1, 2, or 4 cards, creating compact, mountable, stand-alone systems. The insert cards are hot-swappable and can be used in any enclosure, providing for future flexibility. Each housing unit operates with an appropriate power supply, and modules are compatible with the OptivaView® SNMP Management Suite.
