Emcore Ups The Score With ‘openGear ’platform

New Generation DVI / VGA / Component video transport product will address multiple audio/visual market vertical applications that require high-resolution digital video, audio & data signals to be transported over long or short distances.

Emcore Corporation, a global provider of compound semiconductor-based components, subsystems and systems for the fiber optics and solar power markets, is introducing the openGear terminal equipment platform to the Professional Audio/Visual market, marked by the ground-breaking release of the first ultra high-resolution video fiber optic transport solution designed for openGear.

The convergence of the Broadcast Communication & Professional Audio/Visual markets has created significant opportunities over the past few years for Emcore to leverage its existing product portfolio in new ways, yielding many new projects around the globe.

Through the openGear partnership, the professional audio/visual community will now be able to deploy proven technologies with a standardized open platform approach. The Professional Information Communications & A/V Systems marketplace is estimated to be a $75 billion dollar industry annually, and experiences a consistent year-over-year growth, making it an excellent match for Emcore.

The new DVI / VGA / Component video transport solution is designed to address multiple audio/visual market verticals including Digital Signage, Airport/Mass Transit Display Systems, Command & Control Centers, Medical Video Conferencing and other applications that require high-resolution digital video, audio & data signals to be transported over long or short distances.

Features include VESA & SMPTE standards compliant video resolutions, Stereo Audio Inputs and USB Keyboard/Mouse connectivity. This makes the OPG-1DVI a versatile system that can be easily adapted to fit almost any application where remote KVM connectivity is required.

"At NAB 2010 this year, we announced our partnership with openGear as well as introduced several new products for the Broadcast Equipment market. We're applying our expertise and taking it to the next level by introducing new fiber solutions to the Professional Audio/Visual marketplace," said Henok Tafese, Director of Business Development for the Fiber Optic Video business unit. This enables us to harness the innovative features and capabilities that our fiber optic technology is known for," he added.

Emcore will showcase these and other products at InfoComm 2010, June 9-11 in Las Vegas, Nevada at Booth N1569 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Free access to the Exhibition may be obtained by visiting  and clicking on the ‘InfoComm FREE REGISTRATION’ link on the homepage.
