With over 25 years of leadership in broadcast video semiconductor technology and standards, Semtech’s leading and comprehensive line of broadcast SDI products support all broadcast video data rates and formats. Semtech’s robust solutions enable extended reach, higher performance, interoperability with existing infrastructure, and strong signal integrity for next-generation Ultra-High Definition (UHD) TV Broadcast equipment. Semtech’s BlueRiver technology addresses the need for flexible software defined audiovisual (AV) that can be carried over low-cost IP networks without requiring compression or introducing latency. Software Defined Video over Ethernet (SDVoE™) is the only approach to AV-over-IP based on an interoperable ecosystem of Pro AV products and companies. BlueRiver technology is the underlying technology driving SDVoE applications and ecosystem.

"IBC is an ideal opportunity for Semtech to demonstrate our award-winning broadcast video UHD-SDI solutions to the industry and to introduce the newly-acquired BlueRiver technology," said Don Shaver, Director of Marketing of Video Products for Semtech's Signal Integrity Products Group. "As the most widely adopted interoperable AV-over-IP platform in the Pro AV market, the BlueRiver technology pushes the boundaries of performance, reach and signal integrity while reducing time to market and design-risks for next-generation UHDTV and AV signal distribution infrastructure."

Demonstrations are by appointment only and schedule a meeting here to discover more about Semtech’s broadcast video and Pro-AV solutions.
