AptoVision Debuts New BlueRiver NT1000 Chip-set Design

The BlueRiver NT1000 from AptoVision is the newest AV-Over-IP chipset reference redesign — we wanted to be technically accurate and everyone else in the press is reporting it as a chip, but it’s not. 

Expanding the BlueRiver NT+ Series it is able to transport uncompressed, zero-latency Ultra HD/4K HDR over Ethernet. AptoVision says that the NT1000 can reduce material costs for AV over IP encoders and decoders by up to 50%. AptoVision’s existing BlueRiver NT+ chipset is now renamed BlueRiver NT2000.

This new design is specifically for AV/KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switching and extension applications, the HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 compliant BlueRiver NT1000 can transmit true 4K/60Hz (4:4:4) at 8-bit color video with near-zero frame latency over 100m of CatX or 30 kilometers of fiber. The design includes audio, GbE, USB 2.0, RS232 and IR, all of which can be routed independently. Audio can be extracted from or injected into any HDMI stream within the network.
