Gennum has received a Technical Emmy award for more than a decade of technological innovation that enables television studios to produce high-definition broadcasting. Gennum's chip-set technology, which implements SMPTE 259 and SMPTE 292 Serial Digital Interfaces (SDI), allows TV studios to transmit uncompressed, unencrypted digital signals extremely quickly within a studio’s production facilities.
Gennum's SDI chips sets are found in television-studio cameras, monitors, mixers and recorders. They enable producers to route information without compressing the data, which means the signal is kept at its maximum bandwidth during the entire process.
The Technical Emmy award ceremony will be held at the International Consumer Electronics Show, January 8, 2007, in Las Vegas.
