Interoperability Powered by Semtech’s BlueRiver™ Platform at ISE

LANG AG Demonstrates SDVoE™ Interoperability Powered by Semtech’s BlueRiver™ Platform at ISE

Zero latency, Ethernet-based SDVoE platform unites Pro AV products for matrix switching, AV processing and AV over IP

AMSTERDAM, at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2019, Feb. 5, 2019 — Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced LANG AG, Europe’s premier systems integrator and visual presentation provider, will demonstrate Software Defined Video Over Ethernet (SDVoE)-based product interoperability at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) in Amsterdam, Feb. 5-9, 2019.

Platform interoperability allows designers and integrators to choose from multiple providers to create systems that best meet their customer’s needs. SDVoE™ network architectures bring the disruptive power of Ethernet to traditional AV signal distribution while offering low latency and high quality imagery. Powered by Semtech’s BlueRiver™ platform, over 150 interoperable SDVoE-based products are now available on the market.

“At ISE 2019 we move to the next step of AV over IP interoperability. This represents the evolution from last year's ISE, where we presented a technical comparison between various 10G and 1G Ethernet-based video distribution systems, to focusing on cross-compatibility this year,” said Thomas Wendeler, Image Processing Product Specialist at LANG AG. “In our booth, we will show SDVoE products from different manufacturers working together as one AV over IP signal transmission system. In this setup we will highlight the heart of the whole system – Semtech’s BlueRiver NT chipset. This chipset is responsible for reaching the level of full interoperability across all encoder and decoders.”

The BlueRiver NT chipset series delivers a single programmable system on chip (SoC), which can be used to replace traditional AV/KVM extenders, matrix switchers, video wall controllers, and windowing processors with a simple network of transmitters, receivers and off-the-shelf Ethernet switches.

“As one of the world’s premier system integrators committed to quality and innovation, LANG AG has firsthand knowledge and experience in industry challenges with interoperability,” said Kamran Ahmed, General Manager of BlueRiver products for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Products Group. “LANG AG’s expertise and status as a trusted, unbiased third-party makes them uniquely positioned to show how BlueRiver technology allows SDVoE-based products from multiple vendors to operate seamlessly together as a platform for AV distribution and signal processing.”

Interoperability demonstrations will be featured at both the LANG AG stand 1-H50 and the SDVoE Alliance stand 3-B150.


Based in Lindlar, Germany, LANG is one of the leading European companies for the rental and sale of visual presentation technology and its peripherals. After successfully starting with slide projection in 1978, the company quickly also became popular with in-house developed solutions. Through continuous research and development, as well as close ties to the market, LANG is always up to date with the newest and best technologies, making the right choices for customers, independent of the manufacturer. The closeness to our suppliers, our valued experience and exchange of information allow us to be amongst the first to have access to the newest products. Two independent companies were founded by LANG in 2017 – LANG BARANDAY in Zurich and LANG UK in London.
