EMCORE Launches HDBaseT/CATx Solutions for HD Video With Audio

Switch, Convert and Extend Signals Up to 100 Meters From Source to Display
Over CAT5e/6

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., June 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EMCORE Corporation
(Nasdaq:EMKR), a leading provider of compound semiconductor-based components
and subsystems for the fiber optic and solar power markets, announced today a
new product line to support HDBaseT video and audio extension and distribution
for the Professional Audio/Visual (Pro AV) and Broadcast markets. These
HDBaseT CAT5e/6 products will be demonstrated at InfoComm 2013, June 12-14 in
booth 3525 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

HDBaseT technology enables the 5Play^TM feature set for the delivery of
uncompressed high-definition video, audio, control signals and power over a
single CAT5e/6 cable.HDBaseT is simpler and more cost-effective to implement
for video applications up to 100 meters, eliminating the common issues
professional installers face concerning cable distance and the location of
available power outlets.

The Opticomm-EMCORE HDBaseT line includes the new OTC Series of insert cards
for the Optiva platform, the c-linx Series of stand-alone extenders, and the
High-Definition Multimedia Matrix (HDMX) which switches, converts and extends
CAT5e/6 in addition to other video formats. The OTC Series products are
designed for Optiva platform 6- or 16-slot 19" rack-mount enclosures, or 1- or
2-slot tabletop, or wall-mountable enclosures and can be combined in the same
frame with other Optiva family fiber optic cards. The HDMX is a multi-format,
cross-point switch that supports HDBaseT inputs and outputs along with many
other signal types including DVI, HDMI with HDCP, 3G HD-SDI with embedded
audio, as well as analog video interfaces component, composite and VGA.

"Joining the HDBaseT Alliance presented us with an opportunity to launch a new
product portfolio for the Pro AV market with our most advanced, complementary
copper- and fiber-based solutions all in one," said Henok Tafese, Senior
Director of Business Development for EMCORE. "Our new products maximize the
benefits of HDBaseT with PoE (Power over Ethernet) technology to extend power
through the CATx, while providing virtually unlimited display connections for
multiple applications, all with reduced installation costs," said Tafese.

The complete breadth of Opticomm-EMCORE Pro AV and Broadcast products will be
on display at Infocomm 2013, June 12-14 in booth 3525 at the Orange County
Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. For more information, please visit
