Blustream today announced that it is now shipping the latest addition to its video-over-IP portfolio: the IP250UHD 4K multicast platform featuring Dante® integration. Adding to the company’s existing IP200UHD family of products, the IP250UHD-TX transmitter and IP250UHD-RX video scaling receiver distribute ultra HD and 4K video with HDCP 2.2 over a single category or fiber cable, 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 General Manager. “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.”
