​Blustream Ships IP250UHD 4K Multicast Video-Over-IP Platform

The transmitter and receiver pair allows integrators to incorporate Dante networked audio into new and existing Blustream systems.

Adding to the company’s existing IP200UHD range, the IP250UHD-TX transmitter and IP250UHD-RX video scaling receiver distribute UHD video with HDCP 2.2 over a single category or fiber cable. This, 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.

“Dante is the standard for networked audio in the commercial market and is rapidly gaining traction in the residential space as well, so this is an important addition to our video-over-IP offering,” said Martyn Shirley, Blustream GM. “In systems of any size, the IP250UHD elevates the experience and lowers costs by allowing installers to integrate networked audio via Dante only on the required end points. The compatibility with our IP200UHD platform means integrators can easily and cost-effectively add Dante audio to new or existing Blustream video-over-IP systems.”

The solution distributes AV and control signals over a 1Gb network, using visually lossless compression technology to deliver HDMI, Dante, bi-directional IR, RS-232, and USB/KVM signals up to 328 feet over a standard network architecture, or further when using the units’ fiber 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.
