“Semtech’s BlueRiver technology is paving the way for the future of AV
signal distribution over IP,” said Ryohei Iwasaki, CEO at IDK America.
“The comprehensive BlueRiver chipset, software API, and Semtech’s 3Gb/s
SDI adaptive cable equalizer have provided us with the necessary tools
for including SDI inputs within a high-performance, fiber-based switch
and extended Pro AV system.”

IDK’s NJR-T01SDI is designed to transport SDI input signals for local
and long-haul extension and switched systems via AV-over-IP on fiber
optic cables. The solution converts SDI input signals to HDMI and
enables SDI signal management within the SDVoE-compatible IP-NINJAR
system domain. NJR-T01SDI features zero frame latency for formats up to
1080p and a local monitor output, allowing video recording and
previewing using an HDMI monitor.

“The new IDK AV-over-IP encoder is a welcome addition to a growing
ecosystem of interoperable SDVoE products that are transforming matrix
switching,” said Don Shaver, Senior Director of Video Products for
Semtech’s Signal Integrity Products Group. “IDK’s advanced solutions
portfolio and exceptional service support are expanding the reach of
Semtech’s BlueRiver technology within the Pro AV industry.”

About Semtech’s BlueRiver™ Platform

Semtech’s BlueRiver™
, brings the disruptive power of Ethernet to AV signal
distribution, forever changing the dynamics of the Pro AV industry by
allowing installers and OEMs to replace proprietary AV matrix switches
with off-the-shelf Ethernet networks that deliver dramatically better
price/performance, flexibility and scalability. The BlueRiver platform
delivers a single programmable system on chip (SoC), which can be used
to replace traditional AV/KVM extenders, matrix switchers, video wall
controllers and windowing processors with a simple network of
transmitters, receivers and off-the-shelf Ethernet switches. BlueRiver
chipsets are the foundation of SDVoE technology offering zero-latency,
uncompressed 4K streaming over standard Ethernet with unique support for
HDMI 2.0a and HDR. They also integrate high-fidelity video scaling,
windowing and audio downmixing. For more information, visit
