Semtech’s BlueRiver™ Technology Integrated in Savant’s New IP Video Product Line

Global leader in residential automation capitalizes on SDVoE™ technology and Ethernet networks to replace traditional matrix switches in top-of-the-line luxury installations

CAMARILLO, Calif. — Nov. 13, 2018 — Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that Savant, a leader in premium smart home technology, has built its new IP Video product line on the Semtech BlueRiver™ NT1000 and NT2000 AV-over-IP chipsets.

“Semtech’s BlueRiver platform and video over Ethernet are clear choices for our IP Video line,” said Tim Locasico, Vice President of Engineering at Savant. “The comprehensive BlueRiver software API has helped us build a high performance video system that our Integrator base is excited about, and adoption has been extremely strong.”

Savant IP Video products deliver an ultra-high-performance pixel-perfect 4K video over IP switching platform that will give Savant’s authorized channel resellers the ability to deliver premium distributed AV content to their residential and commercial clients. Integrated with BlueRiver chipsets, the new Savant product line delivers 4K/60 4:4:4 or HDR video over standard IP networks with sub-millisecond latency. Integration professionals will leverage the convenience of a centralized 10GbE switch, enabling high-bandwidth Ethernet connectivity throughout a project. The video and audio distribution capabilities of this new system cost effectively provide a high quality experience across any job size, with scalability up to 128 zones.

Versions of the Savant product built on BlueRiver NT2000 include custom scaling, letting each display receive a signal optimized to its native resolution, and fast switching so that users experience zero blanking or wait time changing sources.

“Systems like those from Savant offer capabilities that were previously cost prohibitive using traditional matrix switches,” said Kamran Ahmed, General Manager of AptoVision products in Semtech’s Signal Integrity Products Group. “Savant’s leadership in home automation expands the reach of Semtech’s BlueRiver-based solutions in an entirely new direction, enabling a full range of residential applications – from sophisticated home theaters to simple kitchen TVs – on a single integrated hardware/software platform.”
