Semtech's-BlueRover-2.0-Solutions-Are-Available-Exclusively-At-Symmetry-Electronics

Founded in 1960, Semtech Corporation has long-standing reputation as a leading global supplier of high-performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms. Semtech also specializes in next-generation off-the-shelf, end-to-end professional AV (Pro Av) solutions that integrate advanced inline signal processing features like light compression, broadcast quality scaling, and audio down-mixing. Semtech’s latest BlueRiver 2.0 product line provides one comprehensive solution for all AV signal distribution and is available exclusively at Symmetry Electronics.

BlueRiver 2.0 Chipsets

Offering interoperability with each other and other installed bases of SDVoE™ products, Semtech’s BlueRiver chipsets share a common SDVoE API that enables features based on endpoint capability. BlueRiver chipsets streamline pro AV development through minimized complexity, simple user interfaces, and convenient device capability monitoring and control technologies. The BlueRiver 2.0 ASIC family of devices all support P2P, AV-over-IP, copper, and fiber.

AVP1000

Semtech’s AVP1000 BlueRiver AVP ASIC chipset is a cost-effective transport solution for the switching and extension solution of audio, video, and control signals over standard Ethernet networks. The AVP1000 is a transceiver chip that supplies the power of Ethernet to traditional AV signal distribution as a single programmable system on chip (SoC). With a convenient network of transmitters and receivers, the AVP1000 is capable of replacing traditional AV/KVM extenders, matrix switches, video wall controllers, and windowing processors.

AVP1000 Key Features:

  • Enables switching and extension of audio, video, and control signals over standard Ethernet networks
  • Compatible with a full range of formats, including 4K60RGB/4:4:4, HDR, 3G, and broadcast-friendly 4K60 10-bit 4:2:2
  • HDMI audio embedding, de-embedding, and breakaway
  • Independent switching with zero latency for all signal types
  • Supports 10GBaseT copper infrastructure over category cabling
  • Single device for transmitter (Tx) or receiver (Rx) products
  • Combine with AVP2000 or AVP2000T for fast switching and video wall applications

AVP2000 Applications:

  • AV/KVM extension
  • AV/KVM matrix switching
  • AV/KVM over IP
  • All of the above simultaneously on a single platform

AVP2000 and AVP2000T

Capable of transport and processing, Semtech’s BlueRiver AVP2000 & AVP2000T feature benefits like image scaling and multiview. The largest distintion between the two chipsets is that the AVP2000T can be configured bi-directionally, whereas the AVP2000 is solely a transceiver chip. The AVP2000T can actively receive and transmit simultaneously. However, the AVP2000 & AVP2000T can both extend the capabilities of the AVP1000. For instance, an AVP1000 transmitter is able to display video signal with scaling, seamless switching, or as a video wall when an AVP2000 receiver is incorporated.

The full-featured BlueRiver AVP2000 & AVP2000T both include the BlueRiver AV processor for in-line pixel processing and a 1GbE interface with a 10G – 1G switch. Additionally, the chipsets both enable true data networking with an AV network and eliminate the need for equipment redundancy.

AVP2000 and AVP2000T Key Features:

  • Enables switching and extension of audio, video and control signals over standard Ethernet networks
  • Compatible with a full range of formats, including 4K60RGB/4:4:4, HDR, 3G and broadcast-friendly 4K60 10-bit 4:2:2
  • HDMI audio embedding, de-embedding, and breakaway
  • Independent switching with zero latency for all signal types
  • Broadcast quality scaler, programmable to scale up or down any resolutions between VGA and 4K
  • Synchronized video wall processing with bezel correction
  • Compositing engine for combining multiple sources into a single display with user-defined layouts for multi-view, tiling, and picture-in-picture applications
  • Audio down-mixing engine from multi-channel PCM audio to stereo
  • Color space conversion and frame rate conversion
  • Supports 10G Ethernet over category cabling and optical fiber
  • Single device for transmitter (Tx) or receiver (Rx) products
  • Independent video scaling on both transmit and receive paths (AVP2000T only)

AVP2000 and AVP2000T Applications:

  • AV/KVM extension
  • AV/KVM matrix switching
  • AV/KVM over IP
  • Video Wall processing
  • Windowing and tiling
  • All of the above simultaneously on a single platform

BlueRiver 2.0 Evaluation Kits

Two comprehensive evaluation solutions are available for BlueRiver 2.0 products. The RDK-AVP2000T-C2TR and the RDK-AVP2000T-F2TR packages are designed for the evaluation and development of the AVP2000T. The RDK-AVP2000T-C2TR provides an endpoint with copper interface, whereas the RDK-AP2000T-F2TR supplies an endpoint with fiber interface. The standard AVP2000T RDK package includes:

  • Two AVP2000T transceiver devices or one transmitter device with one receiver device configured to customer requirements
  • Two power supplies 12 VDC with locking DC connector
  • Two 10G SFP+ multi-mode optical transceivers (Fiber Evaluation kits)
