Clever compression technology announced6 February 2018
Announcing no fewer than 40 new products, including its AVLC technology, is CYP.
Described by the company as ground-breaking, Adaptive Visual Lossless Compression (AVLC) is said to deliver genuine 4K UHD signals in perfect quality up to 70m over a single run of Cat5e/6/7 cable. CYP is implementing AVLC into its range of HDBaseT extenders and matrices.
According to CYP, AVLC is important because, despite HDBaseT’s 10.2Gbps bandwidth limitation, AVLC can pass the 18Gbps data feeds required for 4K UHD HDMI video sources, up to and including 4K@60Hz (4:4:4, 8-bit), as well as 10/12-bit sources with HDR-10 and Dolby Vision.
This is, the company says, thanks to the clever compression technology within AVLC, which packages and compresses the 18Gbps data, allowing it to pass along the HDBaseT infrastructure and then rebuilds it faithfully at the display end. Due to the numerous video signal qualities available, AVLC also auto-detects the incoming signal’s resolution, colour space and colour depth, and automatically selects the best way to reduce the bandwidth, if any compression is required.
As well as the introduction of AVLC, CYP is launching 40 new products at ISE 2018. Heavily featuring HDBaseT technology, highlights include its range of extenders, matrices and IP solutions, including the first showing of its new HDBaseT matrix, the PUV-1082-PRO.
