Emcore Adds 3G HD-SDI Module to Optiva Platform Product Line
Optiva 3G HD-SDI Module
Emcore Corp. has added SMPTE 424M and 425M compliant 3 Gbps 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 30 424M compliant video signals may be transmitted through a single 3 RU 19-inch chassis. In addition to full 1080p, 50/60 Hz SMPTE 424M compliant video, the SMPTE 292M and 259M, HD-SDI and SDI video broadcast formats are auto-detected and broadcast as well.

The OTP-1HDP is offered in a standard Optiva insert card form factor. These cards fit into the Optiva 1 RU and 3 RU 19-inch rackmount enclosures or standalone desktop enclosures. The 1 RU and 3 RU rackmount enclosures accommodate up to four and 16 insert cards, respectively. The desktop enclosures hold one, two or four cards. The insert cards are hot-swappable and can be used in any enclosure.

"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."

WMUR-TV Says FAA Drone Rules Preclude ENG
The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
