Semtech Partners with Ross Video to Demonstrate 6G UHD-SDI Solutions at NAB 2013

Ross Video has incorporated Semtech products in its openGear 6Gb/s Distribution Amplifier

Camarillo, California - April 10, 2013

Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today announced that it is working with Ross Video and has delivered UHD-SDI components so that the company can develop a UHD-SDI capable distribution amplifier.

Semtech’s 6G UHD-SDI components allow the industry to transport higher resolution formats - both UHDTV and 4k digital cinema. These parts provide twice the density and half the power with outstanding performance all at a substantially lower cost than competitive 3Gb/s multi-link solutions.

Semtech’s Gennum Product Group is showcasing its latest 6G UHD-SDI solutions at the National Association of Broadcasters show in Las Vegas at its invitation-only VIP suite (booth #N2116). Ross Video is showcasing its UHD-SDI enabled, 6Gb/s openGear Distribution Amplifier in booth #N3808. Also on display is a 6Gb/s fiber-optic link running between the two booths.

“Semtech is privileged to be working with an industry leader like Ross Video to develop next-generation 6G UHD-SDI systems,” said Gary Beauchamp, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Gennum Product Group.

David Ross, CEO of Ross Video commented, “Partnering with Semtech has allowed us to develop a 6G UHD-SDI solution that helps our customers meet the challenges of new formats like UHDTV, and 4k cinema.”
