NAB 2013, USA: Semtech Corp. announced six new 6G ultra-high definition-SDI (UHD-SDI) components. These 6G UHD-SDI parts allow the industry to build systems to transport higher resolution television formats - both UHDTV and 4k digital cinema.

Semtech is working closely with key broadcast equipment manufacturers such as Evertz, a leading maker of products that encompass all aspects of broadcast production, which is now using 6G UHD-SDI components.
Semtech’s Gennum Product Group will be showcasing its latest 6G UHD-SDI solutions at the National Association of Broadcasters show in Las Vegas in booth #N2116, at their invitation-only VIP suite.
