EMCORE’s Genesis XD (“GXD”) is an all-in-one multimedia matrix solution that converts, scales, switches and distributes video, audio and data for small-to-large connectivity applications.
GXD’s massive 40 Gbps backplane accommodates uncompressed 4K UHD resolutions now and 8K resolutions later, allowing it to serve as a staple for Installers that want a flexible and reliable connectivity platform.
GXD is a non-blocking, full cross-point matrix switch that accepts and converts both analog and digital signals, including HDMI 1.4b with HDCP (known as HEAC – HDMI, Ethernet, Audio, Control), Display Port, DVI, VGA, Component and 3G HD-SDI. Remote locations can be connected using multimode and singlemode fiber or CATx using HDBaseT technology.
A notable feature of Genesis XD is the ability to break-away and switch audio separately for professional audio editing and processing requirements. GXD also embeds digital S/PDIF or stereo analog audio inputs into HDMI and 3G HD-SDI signals, as well as, de-embeds audio from those same digital signals.
Genesis XD is a modular system, expandable by use of GXD- insert cards and external GBOX series, throw-down boxes that can be used as point-to-point links and for point-to-multipoint applications.
GXD can be controlled via remote RS-232 serial data or Ethernet, or via front touch screen panel, which may be used as a preview screen for video sources. GXD allows any source to seamlessly connect to one or many displays for continuous, trouble-free operation in critical applications.
