New AptoVision Chip Optimised for KVMs

By Bob Raikes

AptoVision has now announced the BlueRiver NT1000 chip. The chip is part of the family of chips for transporting uncompressed, zero-latency Ultra HD/4K HDR over Ethernet and is optimised for AV/KVM switching and extension applications. The chip can transmit true 4K/60Hz (4:4:4) video with zero frame latency over 100m of CAT‐x or 30KM of fiber. It supports the complete range of signal types including audio, GbE, USB 2.0, RS‐232 and IR, all of which can be routed independently. Audio can be extracted from or injected into any HDMI stream within the network.

AptoVision’s flagship chipset, the BlueRiver NT+, has now been renamed BlueRiver NT2000.
