L2tek will again be showing the latest developments from key component suppliers to the broadcast industry. Semtech will be demonstrating their 12G SDI devices working over 100m of cable as well as previewing the new UHD gearbox with HDMI 2.0 output. Also on show from Semtech will be the BlueRiver AV-over-IP chipsets, the world’s only chipsets to transport uncompressed, zero-latency Ultra HD/4K HDR over standard Ethernet and are the foundation for Software Defined Video Over Ethernet (SDVoE™) technology and the new AVX extenders comprising two interoperable chipsets, the copper-only AVX100 and the AVX200T, providing the industry’s first bidirectional video transmission capability over a single fibre or copper cable with a built-in broadcast quality video scaling engine.
In a year that has seen an unprecedented uptake in IP infrastructure Embrionix have continued to grow their portfolio of IP I/O and processing platforms with SFP+ based edge devices, standalone IP gateways and the new emVIRTU media processing platform. In addition to the IP components Embrionix continue to develop their SDI emSFP range with products such as the EB12LC1R-MNPA-P 12G optical receiver with full pathological capability. L2tek supply and support the complete range of Embrionix products and will be pleased to discuss your requirements at IBC.
To complement our Embrionix franchise and to provide cost effective IP infrastructure solutions, L2tek now supply optical transceivers, direct attach cables, passive optical components and MPO high density cabling from Gigalight. The company was founded in 2006 and is headquartered in Shenzhen China, focusing on the development of DCI optical interconnection technology and high-definition video optical transmission. L2tek have worked with Gigalight for the last eight years and have always been impressed with the quality and consistency of the product backed up by great service and support. At IBC we will show a range of Ethernet modules from 1G to 400G as well as CWDM multiplexers and cables.
Other IP infrastructure devices now available from L2tek include Mellanox switches and NIC cards, Netgear switches to support our pro-AV activity and Kontron Symkloud for computer-on-modules and high-density rugged server solutions.
As many of our customers have FPGA technology at the heart of their designs and L2tek are pleased to represent several FPGA IP suppliers such as CoreEL Technologies, VYUSync and Chevin-Technology with specific cores and FPGA design capability. At IBC you will be able to see the CoreEL ST2110 IP 4 channel packetizer / depacketizer core with NMOS support, targeted at Xilinx devices. With the increase in speed especially for 25G interfaces comes an increase in power requirement and L2tek are excited to have signed an agreement this year with ABB power with the heritage of GE and a wide selection of devices aimed specially at these applications.
With these highlighted technologies along with our other valued lines we believe we have every aspect of your component design requirement covered. Many of our suppliers will be on hand to discuss specific features in more detail and the L2tek team look forward to seeing you at the show.
