2015 NAB Show

LOWELL, Mass.--()--M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for broadcast video infrastructure, announced today that Imagine Communications, a global leader in video infrastructure, advertising systems and workflow management solutions serving the media networks, broadcast stations, on-line and communication service provider and enterprise markets, has chosen MACOM’s M23554 Adaptive Equalizer, M23145 Reclocker and M23428 Cable Driver for the 12G-SDI interconnects of its Platinum VX, 12Gb/s UHD 4K Routing Platform.

“UHD is attracting the attention of the broadcast market, and the bandwidth requirements needed to support this are much larger than what was required for HD,” said Steve Reynolds, CTO, Imagine Communications. “By leveraging MACOM’s 12G-SDI technology, we can support routing full uncompressed 4k60 video utilizing a single link, rather than using four 3G-SDI links. This enables a more compact, lower power and lower cost routing solution for UHD 4k content.”

“By utilizing our industry leading 12G-SDI chipset, broadcasters can scale their solutions to support UHD by efficiently using existing cable infrastructure. The single link 12G-SDI interface is the most efficient interface for transporting 4K baseband video,” said Ryan Latchman, Vice President, Strategic Marketing and Applications Engineering, High-Performance Analog, MACOM. “We are excited to work with global leaders such as Imagine Communications to help evolve the next generation of broadcast video to higher resolutions.”

MACOM’s family of 12G-SDI products are currently shipping in volume. These MACOM products will be shown at NAB 2015 in booth N3115 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, April 13-16. For more information visit: http://www.macom.com/applications/broadcast-video
