Expanding the BlueRiver NT+ Series it is able to transport uncompressed, zero-latency Ultra HD/4K HDR over Ethernet. AptoVision claims the NT1000 can reduce material costs for AV over IP encoders and decoders by up to 50%. AptoVision’s existing BlueRiver NT+ chipset is now renamed BlueRiver NT2000.
Purpose built for AV/KVM switching and extension applications, the HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 compliant BlueRiver NT1000 can transmit true 4K/60Hz (4:4:4) video with zero frame latency over 100m of CatX or 30KM of fibre.

With the lower cost, lower power and smaller footprint BlueRiver NT1000, the industry can expect a disruptive increase in the breadth of AV-over-IP product offerings.”
