Semtech and Audinate collaborate with SDVoE Alliance to simplify AV-over-IP by combining SDVoE video and Dante audio
The SDVoE Alliance has announced a collaboration with Semtech and Audinate for reference design that simplifies AV-over-IP by combining the power of SDVoE video and Dante audio, discovery, clocking, and software control.
The organization role is to collaborate to standardize the adoption of Ethernet to transport AV signals in professional AV environments.
Through this work Semtech’s BlueRiver AV-over-IP chipset is paired with Dante Embedded Platform to create an audio and software control solution for SDVoE based products. The reference design is interoperable with over 3,000 Dante-enabled audio products from more than 500 manufacturers. This technology expands the Dante ecosystem by enabling a category of AV-over-IP products traditionally supported by matrix switches.
Semtech’s BlueRiver chipset is able to transport uncompressed, near zero-latency Ultra HD/4K HDR over standard Ethernet and is the foundation for the alliance’s technology.
“Semtech’s BlueRiver platform is designed to provide an efficient and cost-effective solution to address the ever-changing technology requirements of the professional AV market,” said Don Shaver, Vice President of Video Products for Semtech. “The collaboration between Semtech, the Alliance and Audinate is designed to simplify AV-over-IP technology without compromising quality or performance.”
“The Alliance is a forward-looking alliance that is focused on future-proof technology. We believe in supporting new features and capabilities without new hardware,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “The reference design is eliminating traditional constraints by combining the power of this video, Dante audio, and Dante Controller to create a unified solution for software control.”
“From the beginning, Audinate has focused on simplifying the customer experience for networked audio and video. This partnership with Semtech and the SDVoE Alliance extends this vision into the 10G space by providing a unified control experience for customers of these products,” said Josh Rush, chief marketing officer for Audinate.
