Semtech’s BlueRiver® Technology Enables New Market-Leading Solutions from YUAN®

YUAN’s 12G SDI to SDVoE™-capable converter and SDVoE-based capture card disrupt the Pro AV market

CAMARILLO, Calif., July 2, 2019 — Semtech Corporation  (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that YUAN High-Tech Development Co., Ltd. (YUAN), a leading provider of high-quality AV products for the digital home, broadcasting and surveillance markets, has integrated Semtech’s BlueRiver® Software Defined Video over Ethernet (SDVoE™) technology into its new Pro AV converter and video capture card products.

“Semtech’s BlueRiver technology offers a unique set of advantages for low latency AV distribution over standard Ethernet,” said Wendy Lin, Director of U.S. Sales at YUAN. “YUAN has integrated the comprehensive BlueRiver chipset and software API to create new products that, for the first time, can flexibly utilize SDVoE to capture and convert 4K signal content for any use case.”

YUAN’s new Multi to IP Pro 4K Converter utilizes embedded BlueRiver chipsets and Semtech 12G SDI components to convert multiple video formats. The Multi to IP Pro 4K Converter is one of the first of its kind to convert to SDVoE, and supports video formats up to 4K at 60Hz with the capacity to transport and process uncompressed, low-latency, AV over convenient 10G Ethernet. The converter features display port multi-stream transport support, DVI dual link support, multi-standard support (12G/6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI), auto source-format detection, USB interface, and RJ45 output for SDVoE. YUAN’s video capture card, SC710N1-L-SDVoE, relies on BlueRiver technology to manage video input and output and is among the first of its kind to capture 4K60 video data by way of direct SDVoE input. Both new products are compatible and interoperable with other Pro AV products in the SDVoE-based ecosystem.

“The introduction of both a 12G SDI to SDVoE capable converter and an SDVoE capture card are important additions to the ecosystem,” said Don Shaver, Vice President of Video Products for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Products Group. “Building a product on BlueRiver technology offers the advantages that come with interoperable technology and shared standards. YUAN’s new products for AV capture and conversion will help facilitate the broader adoption of SDVoE throughout the Pro AV market.”
