“We have witnessed new matrix price points emerge during the last 12 months and the market is crying out for stripped down professional solutions that can maintain their place as the backbone of any multi room AV system. We’ve worked closely with our customers and component level suppliers to develop our latest contractor series of cost effective solutions. The key to this has been listening to our partners and then engineering application specific products with redundant features removed. We have specified the C44-KIT to support the latest HDCP2.2 protocol and resolutions up to 4K 60Hz 4:2:0, which accounts for the maximum resolution of over 95% of 4K sources currently on the market. During the next 6-12 months we expect the market to polarise as we see the introduction of advanced HDBaseT solutions that support the full 4K resolution of 60Hz 4:4:4. These new solutions will naturally be more expensive than current models and because if this its more important than ever that AV engineers specify the correct equipment for the project in hand. The C44-KIT will be a great solution for residential 4 zone installations for years to come”.

Get ready for journey into the future at ISE 2018! Over the next 4-6 months Blustream will be launching a comprehensive range of Full 4K 50/60Hz 4:4:4 distribution solutions. Pioneering new scaling technology is now available across multiple formats and we are developing an extensive range of solutions to suit a number of specific applications and price points. Visitors at the show will be able to get a hands on demonstration and walk through of the technologies we will be adopting.

Aiden Jones, Tech Director at Blustream UK explains, ‘ For the first time our market is experiencing a significant price vs performance threshold. With the significant increased investment required for 50/60Hz 4:4:4 multi-room systems, our integration partners and their customers need to be more confident than ever that they are specifying the most appropriate product for install in hand. Over the last 12 months we have developed a range of 4K extenders and matrix solutions that utilise the new technology standards in practical ways to maximise the price vs performance requirement’.

Other new solutions we will be launching at ISE 2018 include;

  • NEW Contractor series matrix solutions
  • NEW Dolby licensed audio down-scalers
  • NEW Drag and Drop TV (Free interactive control solution for Blustream Multicast)
  • NEW Advanced Control Module (ACM) for Blustream Multicast.
  • NEW Video and Control boards for the Custom Pro Matrix.
