Semtech to Present Educational Sessions at InfoComm 2018

BlueRiver™ technology to power Pro AV demonstrations in SDVoE Alliance™ booth

CAMARILLO, Calif., May 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq:SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog, mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, today announced participation at InfoComm 2018 in Las Vegas, June 6-8, at the SDVoE Alliance™ booth N720. Helgi Sigurdsson, Senior Product Manager of AptoVision products in Semtech’s Signal Integrity Products Group, will present educational sessions titled “Video Over 1G Ethernet: The Ugly Truth,” each day in the booth.

Attendees of the session will learn about the “codec triangle” – the tradeoff between image quality, latency and bandwidth. They will have the opportunity to compare image quality between codecs like MJPEG at 1G against pixel-pipeline codecs working at 10G and learn how to choose the right codec for their particular applications. For a complete list of the SDVoE 20/20 in-booth educational sessions, and to pre-register, visit the SDVoE website

Semtech’s BlueRiver™ platform will power an array of demonstrations covering key topics important to AV professionals, including how to deliver matrix switch performance with uncompromised quality and sub-millisecond latency over IP, and how to enable true AV/IT convergence using 10G networks. As a founding member of the SDVoE Alliance, Semtech will provide technical experts to showcase the advanced AV processing capabilities built into BlueRiver NT2000 for video wall and multiview applications, as well as the comprehensive BlueRiver application programming interface (API) that enables AV-over-IP developers to create outstanding user experiences in AV system designs.

“With AV-over-IP revolutionizing the Pro AV market, InfoComm 2018 is an opportunity for the SDVoE Alliance to demonstrate cost-effective ways to replace traditional matrix switching technology with more scalable and flexible Ethernet network solutions that enable true AV/IT convergence,” said Kamran Ahmed, General Manager of AptoVision products in Semtech’s Signal Integrity Products Group. “The BlueRiver platform is the core technology that drives SDVoE and is reshaping the Pro AV industry by enabling off-the-shelf Ethernet networks for better performance and scalability than current switch-based approaches.”
