Semtech's BlueRiver Technology Enables Arista's High Performance Pro AV Solutions

Complex video wall, picture-in-picture (PIP) and picture-and-picture (PAP) applications extend the reach of the SDVoE ecosystem

Semtech Corporation, a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that Arista Corporation (Arista), a leading manufacturer of video wall LCD displays, AV extenders, matrix switchers, AV multiviewers, and related products for the AV installation and industrial markets, has integrated Semtech’s BlueRiver technology for SDVoE (Software Defined Video over Ethernet) into its ARD and RS series of transmitters, receivers and extenders.

“Semtech’s BlueRiver technology provided Arista with the ideal foundation on which to build our newest series of Pro AV products,” said Paul Shu, President of Arista. “Impossible with traditional AV switchers, the BlueRiver chipset and software API enabled the development of flexible SDVoE-based solutions for uncompressed, pixel-perfect 4K video in even the most complex video wall, picture-in-picture (PIP) or picture-and-picture (PAP) applications.”

Arista’s ARD and RS products leverage BlueRiver technology to support current SDVoE-enabled uncompressed 4K60 AV over Ethernet. Arista’s products operate on a wide range of video formats, including HDMI, DVI-D, 3G-SDI, and 6G/12G-SDI. Additionally, Arista transmitters and receivers provide video splitting and bezel correction for simple and efficient video wall creation, PIP and PAP capabilities without compromising video quality or requiring additional devices.

“Arista’s products join a growing ecosystem of SDVoE-based solutions that are revolutionizing the industry through flexible, Ethernet-based AV transmission,” said Don Shaver, Vice President of Video Products for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Products Group. “Engineered with interoperability in mind, BlueRiver-enabled SDVoE is one of the only AV over IP technologies capable of displacing the traditional matrix switch. Arista’s Pro AV products further extend the reach of SDVoE into new applications and markets.”
