Semtech Announces Immediate Availability of BlueRiver™ Production Assistant Software

Graphical interface tool enables manufacturers of AV-over-IP endpoints to easily differentiate products and configure, manage, control, and update SKUs

CAMARILLO, Calif., July 31, 2018 — Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, today announced immediate availability of its BlueRiver™ Production Assistant Software. The new graphical interface tool facilitates mass production of BlueRiver-based AV transmitters and receivers, allowing manufacturers to easily create and manage different hardware configurations and default settings for any number of unique products, each with multiple stock keeping units (SKUs).

BlueRiver-based AV solutions target a variety of markets and are ideal for applications in education, healthcare, enterprise, entertainment, hospitality, retail, government, military, and industry when the need for uncompromised zero-latency 4K video is required. The new BlueRiver Production Assistant Software allows any manufacturer to tailor a product line to serve multiple markets, or to hone in on very specific niches. The technology also can be leveraged by customers implementing BlueRiver hardware development kits and BlueRiver API maintenance packages.

“Semtech’s BlueRiver technology has dramatically advanced the state-of-the-art in the Pro AV industry. OEMs are now able to replace proprietary AV matrix switches with off-the-shelf Ethernet networks that deliver vastly better price, performance, flexibility, and scalability,” said Kamran Ahmed, General Manager of AptoVision products in Semtech’s Signal Integrity Products Group. “In this latest innovation in BlueRiver Production Assistant Software, the technology makes it easier for customers to manage the variety of products and configurations needed to meet all the 4K signal distribution requirements in the full range of AV environments including control rooms, classrooms, boardrooms, operating rooms, living rooms, and more.”
