Semtech’s BlueRiver® AVP Enables Advanced Graphics Card Solutions for Video Wall Applications

YUAN’s SDVoE™-based graphics card delivers UHD video content for video wall and other flexible AV solutions

CAMARILLO, Calif., February 12, 2020 — Semtech Corporation  (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that YUAN High-Tech Development Co., Ltd. (YUAN), a leading provider of high quality AV products for the digital home, broadcasting and surveillance markets, has integrated Semtech’s BlueRiver® technology into its new line of Software Defined Video over Ethernet (SDVoE™) -enabled CAT Quad graphics cards. The products, based on the new BlueRiver AVP, allow customers to create video walls and other advanced AV displays with minimal latency and a maximum resolution up to 8K.

“Semtech’s BlueRiver technology delivers broadcast caliber processing and enables uncompressed-quality 4K transmission over standard Ethernet networks,” said Wendy Lin, Director of U.S. Sales at YUAN. “YUAN leveraged this technology to create a new line of products utilizing SDVoE-based data transfer to deliver prime solutions for video wall and other advanced AV applications.”

YUAN’s new SDVoE-based CAT Quad graphics card has four output ports with a maximum resolution up to 8K. These outputs enable the remote stitching of multiple 4K video sources for flexible AV applications, including video walls. In addition to delivering high-resolution video wall content, the CAT Quad remotely accesses HID devices, such as keyboards and mice, though USB ports within a KVM setup. Support for USB-HID transmission is a new feature integrated directly into Semtech’s BlueRiver AVP chipset.

“YUAN is an early adopter of the BlueRiver AVP chipset, and both the 12G SDI-SDVoE capable converter and SDVoE-based capture card take full advantage of the chipset’s feature set to offer USB-HID support,” said Don Shaver, Vice President of Video Products for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Products Group. “BlueRiver technology offers tangible benefits for Pro AV networking and leverages the interoperable technology and standards of the SDVoE ecosystem to reduce system costs and create innovative applications.”

YUAN and Semtech will attend ISE 2020, taking place in Amsterdam, February 11-14, 2020. BlueRiver-based products are featured in both the YUAN booth, 8-M170, and the SDVoE Alliance® booth, 1-F40. For more information about the conference, visit the event website.

About Semtech’s BlueRiver®

Semtech’s BlueRiver® technology, 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
