The award-winning BlueRiver platform is designed from the ground up to efficiently and cost-effectively address all the requirements of the Pro AV market. It lets manufacturers create complete AV-over-IP product lines at a variety of price points.
BlueRiver AV-over-IP chipsets are the world’s only chipsets to transport uncompressed, zero-latency Ultra HD/4K HDR over standard Ethernet and are the foundation for Software Defined Video Over Ethernet (SDVoE™) technology. Using standard Ethernet connectivity, products using BlueRiver chipsets can be connected to a switch for AV-over-IP applications, or point-to-point for simple low-cost HDMI extenders and legacy matrix switching applications.
BlueRiver 1000-series delivers high-performance switching and distribution of AV content – up to true 4K60. It meets all the requirements of a Pro AV matrix switch or KVM, including the ability to transport HDMI 2.0b signals with HDR, stereo or multichannel audio, and control signals including IR, RS-232 and USB.
BlueRiver 2000-series includes all of the functionality of BlueRiver 1000-series, but adds the BlueRiver AV Processor, providing broadcast-quality image scaling, multi-source video compositing, and video wall processing (cropping) with bezel correction.
Legacy FPGA-based BlueRiver NT products can upgraded to ASIC implementations, delivering BlueRiver technology at a fraction of the power consumption, and allowing for greater industrial design flexibility.
Endpoints created using BlueRiver chipsets are fully compatible, and are all controlled via the BlueRiver API. Manufacturers who combine BlueRiver variants are able to offer system designers a broad toolkit to create efficient and cost-effective networks using only the functionality required at each node. Such networks are ideal for deployments in education, healthcare, enterprise, entertainment, esports, hospitality, retail, houses of worship, government, military, industry, and security – wherever the need for uncompromised zero-latency 4K video arises.
