EMCORE Corporation, a N.M.-based provider of compound semiconductor-based? components and subsystems for the fiber-optic market, says its new Opticomm-EMCORE NV Series JPEG 2000 products give content providers high-quality, low-latency, real-time HD video distribution over Internet Protocol (IP).??

The NV Series sends out high-rez 3G HD, HDMI or DVI signals to HD monitors in one or multiple locations via IP infrastructures.

"When video is transmitted directly from a live site to an editing studio, having very low latency is the most crucial aspect of the system. In our new NV Series of products, HD video and audio signals are received by the encoder, compressed using JPEG 2000, and?transmitted with a latency of less than 50 milliseconds via an IP network," explains Henok Tafese, senior director/Business Development.??

Here’s how it works: When the NV Series is combined with a compatible managed Ethernet switch setup, a HD matrix switching distribution system can be created. The NV series allows content providers to move from matrix switch to managed-Ethernet switch by cascading multiple switches; numerous displays may be located long distances from their sources while sustaining consistent 1080p video and sound quality, the company says.??

In addition, the NV series also allows USB data to be sent along with HD video and audio distribution signals to control a remote keyboard and mouse. The NV encoders and decoders may be configured via Application Program Interface or a Web server, and they?can be mounted in a 19-in. 1RU rack or used as a standalone unit.??The new products will be on display at Infocomm 2012, June 13-15, in Las Vegas.?
