EMCORE Introduces 4K Ultra HD Ready Optical Extension Cards for Real-Time
1080p HD Video With KVM Extension and Audio Over Fiber

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., June 12, 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
the introduction of the Opticomm-EMCORE OTP-1DVI2A1UKM 4K Ultra HD Ready
Optical Extension Cards for the Professional Audio/Visual (Pro AV) and
Broadcast markets. These new 1080p Ultra HD video cards with Keyboard Video
Mouse (KVM) extension will be demonstrated at InfoComm 2013, June 12-14 in
booth 3525 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

The OTP-1DVI2A1UKM was designed to quickly convert, scale and send secure HD
video and audio over fiber within government, or commercial facilities that
require the highest-quality video to be displayed. This transmitter/receiver
pair is ideal for applications such as large multi-screens, JumboTron, digital
signage, VIP suite broadcasting, medical imaging, movie editing, drafting,
animation and secure video conferencing.They transcode DVI to and from VGA /
RGB / RBGHV / YPbPr with EMCORE's proprietary Intelli-scale technology and can
instantly scale to the native resolution of any display up to 1920x1200, all
in a compact one-slot transmitter/receiver.The OTP-1DVI2A1UKM provides
seamless transmission of DVI, VGA or component video, audio over fiber and
analog stereo audio, plus provides USB KVM for control of peripherals over
long or short distances from 0.5 to 25 km.

"We are expanding our product offering to 4K Ultra HD resolutions and above to
support future multimedia expectations and to continue development of
leading-edge products for the Optiva platform," said Chris Larocca, Chief
Operating Officer for EMCORE."The OTP-1DVI2A1UKM is the first step toward
delivering an entire product line that supports these new, advanced, extreme
high-resolution mission-critical applications."

The full Optiva line of video, audio and data extension cards was designed to
maintain lossless fiber extension between input and output signals.New
signals may be added to most products through our proprietary Daisy-Chain
technology without the need for additional fiber.The Optiva line of products
also includes insert cards for up to 16 channels of
multiplexing/demultiplexing, 16x16 matrix switching, optical add/drop, as well
as remote system monitoring.Optiva insert cards can be installed in both 19"
rack-mount and compact tabletop, or wall-mountable enclosures.
