Demos Highlight the Industry's Most Comprehensive Portfolio of Broadcast Video Solutions
NAB 2011, Booth #N5823
BURLINGTON, ON, April 7 /CNW/ - Showcasing the most comprehensive,
end-to-end portfolio of SDI broadcast video solutions available from a
single source, Gennum Corporation (TSX: GND) will host a series of
video transport demonstrations in booth #N5823 at the National
Association of Broadcasters (NAB) conference next week in Las Vegas.
The demonstrations will include Gennum's new GS3440 long-reach adaptive
equalizer (EQ), new GS3442 high-density adaptive EQ and
industry-leading video crosspoint family.
Regarded as a pioneer in HD video technology and a market leader in
broadcast equipment semiconductor solutions, Gennum will be
demonstrating the GS3440, a next-generation adaptive cable EQ that
provides cable reach beyond 200 meters for the most demanding
real-world applications. Leveraging Gennum's leadership in adaptive
cable EQ technology, the new GS3440 combines long reach with
unprecedented jitter performance, helping to simplify the design and
installation of broadcast systems.
To further demonstrate the breadth of Gennum's equalizer portfolio,
which offers solutions for demanding performance and cost-sensitive
applications, the new GS3442 high-density adaptive EQ will also be
featured. Leveraging Gennum's unique understanding of customer
applications, the GS3442 is optimized for use in high-density multilane
environments, simplifying design considerations when using the latest
generation of BNC connector options including HD-BNC, DIN 1.0/2.3 and
Mini BNC connectors. The GS3442's low sensitivity to crosstalk also
makes it an ideal choice for high-density connectors such as FCI
Gennum has also developed the industry's first family of crosspoint
switches to combine video-specific features with unmatched data
throughput and power management capabilities. Developed from the
'ground up' for HD, 3Gb/s, 3D and Ultra HD, Gennum's new crosspoint
switches are the most feature-rich available, in sizes from 2 x 2 up to
290 x 290 - the largest asynchronous, fully non-blocking crosspoint
switch in the industry. The crosspoint family enables equipment
manufacturers and broadcasters to more effectively handle
next-generation video formats and increasing data rate requirements in
"Gennum is committed to relentlessly deliver the most innovative signal
integrity products to our global customers, enabling them to deploy
some of the most sophisticated and advanced broadcast video equipment
anywhere," said Bharat Tailor, Director of Video Marketing for Gennum.
"This passion to ensure our customers' success will be on display in
all of our products being demonstrated at NAB."
Demonstrations, including the new products, will be held at Gennum's
New GS3440 Long-reach Adaptive Equalizer. Gennum's next generation adaptive cable equalizer that provides cable
reach beyond 200 meters for the most demanding real-world applications.
The demo will showcase the GS3440's ability to maintain outstanding
signal integrity in several real-world applications including 3Gb/s/HD
signals, long cable lengths, long trace lengths, intermediate board
connectors and utilizing Amphenol RF's new HD-BNC™ high performance
connector and Belden video cable in different lengths.
GX3290 Crosspoint. This demo will show the feature set and switching ability of the new
GX3290, the broadcast video industry's first 290x290 fully non-blocking
asynchronous crosspoint switch. It will feature Amphenol RF's HD-BNC™
high-density BNC connector and Belden cabling solutions and include
real-world applications such as passive splitting and long trace
lengths highlighting the GX3290's industry-leading equalization and
input sensitivity. The demo will use award-winning SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D encoding and decoding technology to show how the GX3290
supports the transport of 3D signals. The demo will also show such firsts as 8 strobes for multiple-sync
applications, integrated eye pattern evaluation and test signal & error
reporting diagnostics support.
Over 100 Passes of Error-Free 3G SDI Video, Utilizing Gennum's Complete
3G Solutions - Equalizers, Reclockers, and Cable Drivers. Featuring Gennum's new GS3442 adaptive equalizer, which is optimized
for use in high-density multilane environments, this demo showcases the
use of connectivity and cabling solutions, emphasizing the signal
integrity performance of Gennum products in real-world applications
using Amphenol's new HD-BNC™ high performance connector and Belden
Transport of 3D Over Existing SDI Infrastructure. Demonstrates how 3D in full 1080p HD can be transported today over an
existing 3Gb/s SDI infrastructure using Gennum's GS2970A SDI
deserializer and GS2972 SDI serializer. SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D encoding and decoding technology will be used to show how
Gennum's deserializer and serializer technology supports Level B-DS
dual stream stereo mapping and simplifies the carriage of stereoscopic
images on a single 3G link.
High-density, Multipin Interconnect Video Distribution Solutions. Using Gennum's new GS3442 high-density adaptive equalizer and GS2988
cable driver, this demo illustrates bit error free transmission using
pathological test signals of 3Gb/s SDI across common multipin, high
Video Optical Modules (VOM). An optical link incorporating Gennum's new Gen3 video optical
transmitter and receiver pair sending video signals over 10 km of
optical fiber. Gennum's proprietary solution is designed specifically
for SDI pathological video and features best-in-class receiver
sensitivity, exceptional dynamic range and transmission of SDI over
fiber with no pathological penalty.
Fiber Termination. Video over fiber using a Gen3 video optical transmitter/ receiver pair
sending video over fiber terminated with Belden® FiberExpress® Brillance® field-installable connectors. A fiber termination kit will be available
so customers can try out the Belden connectors.
In addition to the demos on the Gennum booth, these exhibitors will also
be featuring Gennum technology in their booths:
Amphenol Broadcast Solutions, booth #C6540. A GX3290 input/output customer evaluation board
featuring Amphenol HD-BNC connectors is on display. Gennum works
closely with its broadcast technology partners to identify real
applications faced by end-users. Gennum has collaborated with Amphenol
to ensure the GX3290's performance is optimized for use with the
Belden, booth #C8925. Demonstration utilizing Gennum's complete 3Gb/s
solutions - equalizers, reclockers and cable drivers - and using Belden cable and connector solutions.
The GX3290 crosspoint switch is available in limited quantities now with
full volume product shipments scheduled to begin in Q2 2011. The GS3440
long-reach adaptive equalizer is scheduled to sample in September of
2011 with initial production planned in 1Q 2012.
