Blustream to add 4K transmitter and receiver to video-over-IP platform

Blustream is shipping the IP250UHD 4K multicast platform featuring Dante integration, the latest addition to its 1Gb video-over-IP platform.

The IP250UHD-TX transmitter and IP250UHD-RX video scaling receiver distribute ultra HD and 4K video with HDCP 2.2 over a single category or fibre cable, while allowing integrators to input two audio channels from the video-over-IP system for playout on Dante-enabled devices and extract two channels from the Dante network for playout across the Blustream system.

Blustream uses visually lossless compression technology to deliver HDMI, Dante, bi-directional IR, RS-232, and USB/KVM signals up to 100m over a standard network architecture, or further when using the units' fibre SFP port. The IP250UHD-TX and IP250UHD-RX support independent or combined HDMI and/or Dante signal distribution to work with any network configuration. The IP250UHD-TX includes an HDMI loop-out for integrating local displays or cascading to multiple devices.

Both the transmitter and receiver can be powered via PoE from the network switch or locally should the switch not support PoE. Multiple configuration options are available including matrix distribution, video wall presentation, one-to-one HDMI extender, and one-to-many HDMI extender.
