Semtech’s BlueRiver® Platform Provides Near-Zero Latency Video for JAM-Labs Surgical Displays

Semtech provides a Software Defined Video over Ethernet™ single chip solution for healthcare settings

CAMARILLO, Calif. Apr. 7, 2022Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading global supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that JAM-Labs, a Silicon-Valley-based medical devices company focused on building next generation of operating room integration products and transforming healthcare for its customers, has integrated Semtech’s BlueRiver® platform into its latest generation of surgical displays. Through implementing BlueRiver, JAM-Labs surgical displays provide uncompressed, near-zero latency 4K video that is compatible with any Software Defined Video over Ethernet (SDVoE)™ equipment.

“Hand-eye coordination is crucial to surgeons. Any latency on a surgical display can impact this, and for extended periods, could lead to surgeon fatigue,” said John Thomas, CEO, CTO and co-founder of JAM-Labs. “The integration of Semtech’s BlueRiver device into our latest surgical displays, enables us to maintain near-zero latency, uncompressed video quality as well as sterile by eliminating external convertor boxes for a cleaner operating room solution.”

Ideal for operating rooms, JAM-Labs’ surgical displays are providing near-zero latency, 4K video for surgeons through Semtech’s BlueRiver platform. In addition, by featuring BlueRiver technology, the core of interoperable SDVoE products, the JAM-Labs surgical displays are now able to support other SDVoE equipment relevant to the operating space.

“Transmitting high quality 4K video with near-zero latency over networks is ushering in a new era of healthcare,” said Don Shaver, vice president of marketing of video products for Semtech's Signal Integrity Products Group. “Semtech’s collaboration for JAM-Labs’ surgical displays is showcasing the effectiveness of the BlueRiver platform as well as SDVoE technology to provide better experiences for both the patient and healthcare professional.”

About Semtech’s BlueRiver® Platform

Semtech’s BlueRiver® platform, brings the disruptive power of Ethernet to AV signal distribution, forever changing the dynamics of the Pro AV industry by allowing installers and OEMs to replace proprietary AV matrix switches with off-the-shelf Ethernet networks that deliver dramatically better price/performance, flexibility and scalability. The BlueRiver platform 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. BlueRiver chipsets are the foundation of SDVoE technology offering zero-latency, uncompressed 4K streaming over standard Ethernet with unique support for HDMI 2.0a and HDR. They also integrate high-fidelity video scaling, windowing and audio downmixing. For more information, visit
