Blustream will present its latest commercial video distribution solutions in booth 4173 at InfoComm 2023 in Orlando, Florida. Integrators will see the new IP300UHD and Dante-enabled IP350UHD video over IP for transmitting 4K 60 4:4:4 HDMI 2.0 18Gbps over a 1Gb network. And with Dante solutions becoming increasingly important to commercial integrators, Blustream will also highlight its entire Dante line, from amplifiers to wall plate audio converters.
Available now, the Blustream IP300 series Video over IP platform allows virtually latency-free (one frame) distribution of HDMI 2.0 video over a 1Gb managed network. The IP300UHD-TX is a 4K HDCP 2.2 HDMI transmitter that uses visually lossless compression technology to deliver 18Gbps HDMI, audio, bi-directional IR, RS-232, and USB/KVM up to lengths of 100m over standard copper network architecture, or greater distances using the built-in fiber SFP network interface. And shipping in June, the Dante-enabled IP350UHD-TX and IP350UHD-RX can support both 4K60 4:4:4 video and Dante audio distribution on a single network. A second RJ45 connection allows for the Dante audio network interface to be segregated from the video over IP network whenever required.
“With the IP300UHD and IP350UHD, integrators now have a cost-effective solution to deliver 4K60 4:4:4 over a 1Gbps network,” says Martyn Shirley, General Manager and Founder at Blustream. “The IP300UHD and IP350UHD complete the Blustream Video over IP offering, giving integrators the full spectrum of options – from the essential HD performance of the IP50HD line all the way to the uncompromised 18Gbps over a 10Gb of the IP500UHD transceiver.”
Keeping with the Dante theme, the entire Blustream Dante catalogue will be on display, including the NPA70DA and NPA100DA Networked Power Amplifiers (70W and 100W respectively) and two new Dante Wall Plates. The DA11ABL-WP-US is a multi-input/output wall plate to convert Bluetooth and analogue audio within a digital Dante networked audio system. It converts two input channels of Bluetooth, or unbalanced audio to Dante digital audio, and two channels of Dante audio to two output channels of unbalanced audio. The DA22XLR-WP converts two input channels of balanced/unbalanced/MIC audio with switchable 48v Phantom power to Dante digital audio, and two channels of Dante audio to two output channels of balanced/unbalanced audio.
In addition, Blustream solutions from USB extension to the 16×16 fully-customisable Custom Pro Matrix will be on display in Booth 4173 throughout InfoComm 2023.
