Advantech Collaborates with SEMTECH to Develop Innovative SDVoE-Compliant Visual Processing Solutions

Taipei, Taiwan, April 11th, 2023 – Advantech, a leading provider of advanced video processing solutions, is pleased to announce a cooperation relationship with Semtech, a high-performance semiconductor, IoT systems and Cloud connectivity service provider. The aim of this collaboration is to develop Software Defined Video over Ethernet (SDVoE) solutions that benefit the entire SDVoE Alliance® ecosystem.

To support diverse visual content streaming applications in the medical, manufacturing, esports, and broadcasting industries, Advantech’s VEGA series offerings, integrated with Semtech’s BlueRiver® platform for SDVoE, enable point-to-point, point-to-many, and multicast AV-over-IP communication. Moreover, as part of the company’s commitment to cultivating additional vertical markets, Advantech, with Semtech, develops highly compatible SDVoE™ products that benefit SDVoE Alliance members and customers worldwide.

Magic Pao, Associate Vice President of Advantech’s Industrial Cloud & Video Group, commented “We are excited to cooperate with Semtech and look forward to providing complete and advanced AV-over-IP solutions worldwide.” He added, “The key aspect of our collaboration is to bring the highest performance, lowest compression video-over-IP solutions to our customers.”

4K resolution video is becoming more and more common in operating rooms (OR). This is due in part to an increase in minimally invasive procedures which reduce health risks and speed up patients’ recovery. The medical displays in OR become the eyes of the doctors, so the quality of video and images must be reliable and flawless.

Advantech’s VEGA-1200 hybrid encoder/decoder not only facilitates medical imaging and video recording but takes it one step further by also supporting all analog, digital, and IP video sources. Encoder functionality converts analog signals into digital streams that can be transmitted over LAN, WAN, and other types of IP networks with near-zero latency. This allows healthcare providers to record surgical procedures and treatments in real-time and live stream them to medical schools and teaching hospitals using existing network infrastructure. Video distribution in ORs is likely to be a significant driver of future growth and bring more opportunities for Video-over-IP solutions.
