From standard designs to wall plates and matrixes, Semtech’s BlueRiver® ASIC serves as core technology base for ProITAV SDVoE™-enabled solutions
CAMARILLO, Calif., Sept. 1, 2022 – Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading global supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced its 20th collaboration with global OEM/ODM company, ProITAV for its latest OEM-customized AV-over-IP (AVoIP) design. Semtech’s BlueRiver® technology is now used by over a third of ProITAV’s customer base.
“As the first ODM company to deploy Semtech’s BlueRiver platform for ProAV solutions back in 2014, this 20th project continues to showcase how Semtech has moved the needle for ProITAV and the industry as a whole,” said Keith Kennedy, managing director, ProITAV. “Throughout the eight years of collaboration with Semtech, ProITAV produced close to 100 of both standard and bespoke designs for our end customers. ProITAV solutions, when paired with Semtech’s BlueRiver devices, are one of the reasons ProITAV has been so successful in the professional audio/visual (AV) industry.”
Semtech’s BlueRiver technology is currently found across dozens of ProITAV solutions ranging from matrixes and wall plates to standard encoders, decoders and transceivers. The BlueRiver platform is the core technology for Software Defined Video over Ethernet (SDVoE™) and is recognized as the only true replacement for legacy matrix switching applications. With the BlueRiver platform, customers are able to migrate any existing FPGA-based BlueRiver solution to an integrated, lower power form factor. As the result of lower power usage, the cost is also lowered by up to half. Reduced power usage and cost in turn are creating a new set of SDVoE-enabled solutions to meet the growing needs of the Pro AV community.
“As a longtime collaborator, ProITAV and its BlueRiver-based solutions showcase the high-performance aspects of Semtech’s Pro AV platform,” said Melissa Nolet, director of product management, Professional AV, for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Products Group. “BlueRiver is driving a new class of SDVoE solutions through its lower cost peripherals, ultimately engaging ODMs to customize AVoIP products to meet the needs of even their most discerning customers.”

About Semtech’s BlueRiver® Platform
Semtech’s BlueRiver® platform, 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 www.semtech.com/products/professional-av/blueriver.
