Semtech UHD-SDI Gearbox Wins NewBay Best of Show Award from TV Technology

The GS12070 UHD-SDI Gearbox was recognized for its design, features, cost efficiency and performance at the NAB Show 2016

Camarillo, California - April 25, 2016 -

Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, won the NewBay Best of Show Award from TV Technology for its UHD-SDI Gearbox for next generation UHDTV infrastructures at this year’s National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show.

Semtech officially debuted the GS12070 UHD-SDI Gearbox, an advanced integrated circuit (IC) for next generation UHDTV infrastructures, at the NAB Show where it demonstrated the product in its public Gearbox Zone.

“It is very exciting to win an award for our UHD-SDI Gearbox less than a week after its official launch,” said Don Shaver, Director of Video Marketing for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Product Group. “We’re proud to be recognized by TV Technology and believe the GS12070 is positioned to help enable the demanding requirements of today’s broadcasters.”

The GS12070 UHD-SDI Gearbox features single-chip rate conversion between HD-SDI, 3G, 6G and 12G UHD-SDI interface profiles which should enable equipment manufacturers and broadcasters to take a standards-based, commercial off-the-shelf approach to UHDTV infrastructures, minimizing the risk of interoperability issues.

TV Technology uses a panel of industry experts to judge nominated products based on design, features, cost efficiency and performance. The award was announced at the NAB Show on April 20.
