EMCORE Introduces Genesis XD Cross-Point Matrix Switch and GBOX Extenders for
Enterprise 4K Ultra HD Digital Media Distribution over Fiber, CATx and IP

All-In-One Multimedia Matrix to Convert, Scale, Switch and Distribute Video,
Audio and Data for 4K UHD and Beyond

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., June 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EMCORE Corporation
(Nasdaq:EMKR), a leading provider of compound semiconductor-based components
and subsystems for the fiber optic and space solar power markets, announced
today the introduction of the new Genesis XD ("GXD") multimedia matrix switch
for small-to-large Enterprise connectivity applications. EMCORE also announces
the new GBOX Series throw-down box transmitters and receivers for uncompressed
video, audio and data transmission over Fiber, CATx and IP, which are
compatible with Genesis for multipoint applications. Genesis XD and GBOX will
be demonstrated for the first time at InfoComm 2014 in Las Vegas, June 18-20,
in booth C7716, along with other Genesis compatible EMCORE products.

Genesis XD is designed as a modular, non-blocking, full cross-point matrix
switch that is scalable from 8x8 to 256x256 for seamless connectivity to one
or many displays. It provides uninterrupted, trouble-free operation in
critical applications. Genesis XD accepts and converts both analog and digital
signals, including HDMI 1.4b with HDCP, Display Port, DVI, VGA, Component and
3G HD-SDI. These signals can be transmitted to remote locations via singlemode
or multimode Fiber, CATx/HDBaseT or IP/Ethernet. GXD's massive 40 Gbps
backplane accommodates uncompressed 4K UHD resolutions now and 8K resolutions
in the near future, allowing it to serve as a staple for Installers that want
a flexible and reliable connectivity platform. Notable features include the
ability to break-away and switch audio separately, embed and de-embed audio
into digital video signals, and preview any connected video source on the
front touch-screen panel, eliminating the need for a local and dedicated
monitor.

The Genesis compatible GBOX Series are rugged, desk or wall mountable links
useful for short or long distance extension of uncompressed 4K UHD (3840x2160)
video, audio and data. GBOX is suitable for standalone, point-to-point, and
point-to-multipoint applications when connected through Genesis XD. GBOX
supports HDMI 1.4b with HDCP, VGA and Component video, stereo analog audio,
bi-directional RS-232, 10/100 Ethernet, IR and CEC over Fiber and
CATx/HDBaseT. Remote Keyboard, Video and Mouse (KVM) applications are also
supported along with optional USB 2.0 for integrated hard drives and other
high-speed USB devices.

"We are excited to launch Genesis XD platform, migrating our product offerings
to 4K Ultra HD resolutions and above to support future multimedia
expectations," said Henok Tafese, Sr. Director of Business Development for
EMCORE. "We continue the innovation of leading-edge products for our customers
and partners with the Genesis XD and supporting GBOX product line, which are
significant breakthroughs toward delivering an entire product portfolio for
ultra high-resolution digital media distribution applications."

A four-panel video wall will be displayed at InfoComm 2014 using Genesis XD
and Genesis compatible multipoint products, including GBOX, EMCORE's
well-known Optiva family of system cards, and the new Eclipse HD Pro H.264
encoding/decoding system, which will also be debuting. For more information
