MONTREAL — Dec. 15, 2016 — AptoVision™ announced strategic new hires in R&D, product management and customer support as well as relocation to a new facility that quadruples lab and office space. More than 25 global manufacturers are now incorporating AptoVision’s award-winning BlueRiver NT+ AV-over-IP chipsets in over 35 pro AV signal distribution products. The company’s expansion in staff, space, product offerings and new customer design wins put it on track to double those numbers in the coming year.
The recently expanded BlueRiver NT+ Series, the world’s only technology to transport uncompressed, zero-latency Ultra HD/4K HDR over Ethernet, now allows manufacturers to offer a top-to-bottom portfolio of AV-over-IP products which address the full range of feature, performance and pricing requirements for virtually all AV applications. Plus, the recently announced BlueRiver API makes it faster and easier for developers to program their applications using a comprehensive set of subroutine definitions, protocols and tools that control complex tasks such as upscaling up to 4K, downscaling, aspect ratio management, frame rate conversion, chroma sample conversion, video wall processing, image compositing, audio downmixing, video routing, independent audio routing, multicast IGMP management and much more.
“Our investment in people and infrastructure ensures we have all the resources needed to support our customers’ development efforts,” said Kamran Ahmed, AptoVision CEO and co-founder. “We are helping them get quickly to market with innovative products that feature tailored user interfaces and AV management tools for their targeted market segments in education, healthcare, enterprise, entertainment, hospitality, retail, houses of worship, government, military, industrial and security – wherever there’s a need for uncompromised zero-latency 4K video.”
