AptoVision™ today announced BlueRiver™ NT1000, the latest product in AptoVision’s BlueRiver NT+ Series of AV-over-IP chipsets, which remain the world’s only chipsets to transport uncompressed, zero-latency Ultra HD/4K HDR over Ethernet. BlueRiver NT1000 delivers all the advanced IP-switching and extension capabilities AptoVision is known for, while reducing the bill of material costs for AV over IP encoders and decoders by up to 50%.
Purpose built and cost optimized for AV/KVM switching and extension applications, the HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 compliant BlueRiver NT1000 can transmit true 4K/60Hz (4:4:4) video with zero frame latency over 100m of CAT‐x or 30KM of fiber. It supports the complete range of signal types including audio, GbE, USB 2.0, RS‐232 and IR, all of which can be routed independently. Audio can be extracted from or injected into any HDMI stream within the network.
AptoVision’s flagship chipset, the BlueRiver NT+, is now renamed BlueRiver NT2000 and continues to offer high-value AV processing capabilities which enable video-wall, multi-view and seamless switching applications. Together, the two members of the BlueRiver NT+ Series allow manufacturers to offer a top-to-bottom portfolio of AV-over-IP products which address the full range of feature, performance and pricing requirements for virtually all AV applications.
“More than 25 manufacturers have already embraced AptoVision’s BlueRiver NT+ technology to power their premium, feature-rich product range,” said Justin Kennington, strategic and technical marketing director at AptoVision. “With the lower cost, lower power and smaller footprint BlueRiver NT1000, the industry can expect a disruptive increase in the breadth of AV-over-IP product offerings.”
The full BlueRiver NT+ Series will be on display at ISE 2017 (Amsterdam, February 7-10) on stand 12-H55.
