Blustream Makes IP250UHD 4K Multicast Video-Over-IP Platform Available

By CIOReview | Tuesday, September 21, 2021

The IP250UHD-TX and IP250UHD-RX provide independent or integrated HDMI and Dante signal delivery to work with any network setup.

FREMONT, CA: Blustream, an HDMI distribution product company, has recently publicized the availability of the IP250UHD 4K multicast platform with Dante integration, the company's newest addition to its video-over-IP portfolio. The IP250UHD-TX transmitter and IP250UHD-RX video scaling receiver, which join the company's existing IP200UHD family of products, distribute ultra HD and 4K video with HDCP 2.2 over a single category or fiber cable. In addition, they enable integrators to input two audio channels from the video-over-IP system for playout on Dante-powered devices and extract two channels from the Dante network for playout over the Blustream system.

The IP250UHD video-over-IP platform employs visually lossless compression technology to send HDMI, Dante, bi-directional IR, RS-232, and USB/KVM signals up to 328 feet over a typical network architecture, or even further when using the unit's fiber SFP connection. The IP250UHD-TX and IP250UHD-RX provide independent or integrated HDMI and Dante signal delivery to work with any network setup. For integrating local displays or cascading to numerous devices, the IP250UHD-TX offers an HDMI loop-out.

"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, General Manager, Blustream. "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."

If the network switch does not support PoE, the transmitter and receiver can be powered locally. The multicast platform is excellent for residential and commercial installations, with many configuration choices such as matrix distribution, one-to-one HDMI extender, video wall presentation, and one-to-many HDMI extender.
