AptoVision today announced the immediate availability of the BlueRiverNT1000 Hardware Development Kit. BlueRiver NT1000 is the latest product in AptoVision’s BlueRiver NT+ Series of AV-over-IP chipsets, which remain the world’s only chipsets to transport uncompressed, zero-latency Ultra HD/4K HDR over Ethernet and are the foundation for Software Defined Video Over Ethernet (SDVoE) technology. AptoVision says that the BlueRiver NT1000 delivers advanced IP-switching and extension capabilities, while reducing the bill of material costs for AV-over-IP encoders and decoders by up to 50 percent.
The BlueRiver NT1000 Hardware Development Kit includes a pair of reference design units (receiver and transmitter); 20 security devices for prototyping; all reference design files in source format including schematics (Orcad); layout (Allegro) and gerbers; a complete bill of materials; and comprehensive hardware design guides. Technical guidance during the design process and engineering review of the OEM’s design schematics are also provided.
Purpose built and cost optimized for AV/KVM switching and extension applications, the HDMI 2.0- and HDCP 2.2-compliant BlueRiver NT1000 can transmit true 4K/60Hz (4:4:4) video with zero-frame latency over 100 meters of CAT‐x or 30 kilometers of fiber. It supports the complete range of signal types including audio, GbE, USB 2.0, RS‐232 and IR, all of which can be routed independently. Audio can be extracted from or injected into any HDMI stream within the network.
