M/A-COM Technology has announced that its M23544 Adaptive Equaliser has been chosen to complement M/A-COM's M23428 Cable Driver in the 12G-SDI interconnects of Atamos' recognised Shogun 4K Monitor/Recorder as well as Utah Scientific's UHD routing platform, with M/A-COM's M32145 Relocker, and by TVLogic, for the 12G-SDI interface of its LUM-310A 4K professional broadcast monitor.

“Ultra-High Definition 4K is booming for the video production and broadcast professional,” said Jeromy Young, CEO, Atomos. “As 4K continues to proliferate in the marketplace, we see the need to support advanced interfaces is critical. Partnering with MACOM has enabled us to introduce the world’s first 12G-SDI enabled 4K Monitor/Recorder.”

“The 4K node is the next evolutionary step for broadcast video production,” said Hasnain Bajwa, Senior Vice President and General Manager, High Performance Analog, MACOM. “Our 12G-SDI portfolio provides the essential building blocks for equipment manufacturers to bring UHD to the studio. We are pleased that TVLogic has selected our 12G-SDI equalizer for their next generation of professional broadcast monitors.”

“As the broadcast industry transitions to 4K, current solutions utilise a quad 3G-SDI interface,” commented Kyungkook Lee, CEO, TVLogic. “MACOM’s M23554 12G-SDI Adaptive Equalizer allows us to receive 4k60p over a single 12G Link. This capability allows TVLogic to enable broadcasters to view fully uncompressed UHD video in real time with the most efficient infrastructure necessary.”

“As the video industry evolves to UHD, mainstream, affordable production solutions to support 4K are becoming increasingly necessary,” added Gary Shah, Vice President of Marketing, High-Performance Analog, MACOM. “By pushing the limits of innovation, our 12G-SDI chipset has enabled Atomos to address this critical industry need.”

“As broadcast video evolves to UHD, 12G-SDI enables 4k60p video using the lowest power and highest density with the lowest cost. By collaborating with MACOM, UTAH Scientific can offer customers the ability to switch and route ultra-high definition video with a single link connection rather than multiple 3G-SDI connections,” said Jeff Levie, CTO, Utah Scientific. “We are proud to deliver solutions that enable the broadcast industry to migrate to next-gen video.”

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 Centre, Las Vegas, 13th to 16th April 2015
