Blustream launches UK training bonanza for AV integrators
It’s been an amazing 3 years for Blustream since it launched in 2014. From a standing start and with plenty of knowledge and enthusiasm the brand has grown throughout the globe into a market leader for AV distribution.
Pioneering new technology such as enhanced UHD video over IP has become key driver for Blustream growth in both residential and commercial channels. Phil Davis, MD of Blustream Europe explains, ‘There’s never been a more exciting time to be at the forefront of AV distribution. The market is growing at a phenomenal pace and the technology just keeps improving. The ability to deliver complex AV systems with multiple resolution displays is now a common requirement for both commercial and residential AV integrators. The introduction of 4K UHD has been the greatest advancement this industry has witnessed in the last 10 years. It has however thrown up some weird and wonderful complexities that all manufacturers of sources, displays and distribution solutions are having to adapt to. It’s been a great learning curve and we think it’s time to try and share our experiences and pass on as much knowledge as possible to our sales partners across the globe’.
This dedication to knowledge sharing and technology training has been emphasized with the recent launch of weekly Blustream webinars and a UK training roadshow in September.

During the last three years we have embarked on an annual roadshow throughout the UK to support all of our loyal partners with industry leading training and updates from ourselves and other key manufacturer partners.

Roadshow Training Agenda –
The introduction of 4K UHD has been the greatest advancement this industry has witnessed in the last 10 years. It has also thrown up some weird and wonderful complexities that all manufacturers of sources, displays and distribution solutions are having to adapt to. The first part of the training will be focused sharing our experiences of 4K video distribution and lessons we have learnt along the way.
There is a myth that IP distribution is difficult to learn and network qualifications are required to program switches. While this previously may have been the case, with Blustream Multicast we enjoy challenging anyone to come and see how easy it is to configure and install a system in a matter of minutes. Our wizard software takes users on a step by step process for assigning IP addresses and configuring the EDID settings for all components in the system. You can even manually configure a whole system without the need for a PC, simply by plugging in the units and using the buttons on the front for configuration.
Presented by Kevan Spronson of Metz Connect, visitors will be taken step by step through the latest legislation and what it means for AV integrators.
This summer will see the launch of our latest HDBaseT Matrix. The new Custom Pro matrix is our first modular solution but with a key difference. Rather than specify individual ports, we have designed a solution that offers a level of flexibility but maintains and enhances the level of both performance and reliability. Our robust interlocking input design and flexible control board options make specifying the right matrix for the project in hand easier than ever.
Introduction to the powerful DemoPad pocket processor and its advanced control features.
At this year’s Blustream roadshow we will be supported by some innovative brands in our market including HDL, DemoPad, Kordz and Metz Connect. Representatives from all brands will be on hand for one-to-one discussion with live demonstrations and presentations of their latest products.
Interactive on-line tutorials
With the video distribution market developing faster than ever, we thought it time to try and share our experiences and pass on as much knowledge as possible to our sales partners across the globe. Today we are launching a series of regular interactive online tutorials, focused on providing convenient, bite sized insights into the latest Blustream solutions and the day to day challenges we all currently face in our rapidly evolving market. Each of our webinars will last 30 minutes and be scheduled twice per day to suit working hours and availability of our partners in different parts of the world.
All of our courses will be an interactive forum to ask questions about the products and learn how to configure and troubleshoot systems with complex EDID requirements.
