AptoVision announces BlueRiver NT chipset

AptoVision is launching its new BlueRiver NT chipset at ISE 2014.

The company claims its product is the only mainstream chipset to enable the transmission and switching of real-time, uncompressed Ultra-HD AV signals with zero-frame latency over off-the-shelf (OTS) Ethernet switches.
AproVision say replacing custom AV Matrix switches with standard Ethernet switches cuts the cost of AV matrix switching equipment by 60% while also eliminating the associated R&D cost, procurement complexities and inventory risk.
Integrated into source-side AV transmitters and display-side AV receivers, the BlueRiver  NT chipset transmits uncompressed Ultra-HD (4K) HDMI-video, 32 channels of audio, USB 2.0(i) and control signals over fibre or copper cabling using a packet-based architecture allowing the signals to be switched through standard OTS 10G Ethernet switches.
