Part 2: Pro AV’s Codec Triangle: Why Compromise?

Posted by Helgi Sigurdsson on 22 July 2019

In the first installment of 

this two-part blog series, I touched on the Codec Triangle and several factors that make up a complex relationship between bandwidth, latency and quality in Pro AV. Additionally, I discussed video image compression and the harmful effects it can have on your picture. SDVoE™-based Pro AV solutions, built on Semtech’s BlueRiver® technology, are transforming the matrix switch and allowing uncompressed, low latency AV content up to 4K60 over standard Ethernet infrastructure. SDVoE-based solutions are uniquely equipped to fight the harmful effects of compression by leveraging Ethernet. In this blog, I will break down common compression codecs used in the AV space today and offer insight into the pros and cons of each for your application.

Part 1: Pro AV’s Codec Triangle: an Overview

Posted by Helgi Sigurdsson on 15 July 2019

The professional AV market continues to show strong growth with Software Defined Video over Ethernet (SDVoE™)-based infrastructure set to replace traditional matrix switching technology in the near future. SDVoE solutions, built on Semtech’s BlueRiver® technology, offer a few fundamental advantages for AV systems allowing uncompressed, low latency AV distribution over standard Ethernet infrastructure. In the AV world, a common gauge for how well your solution distributes AV content lies in how well it manages the “Codec Triangle.” Similar to the old adage: “good, fast and cheap, pick two,” the Codec Triangle refers to a similar scenario for bandwidth, latency and quality in regard to video compression and distribution over standard network infrastructure. In this two-part blog series, I will use the Codec Triangle to illustrate why BlueRiver-enabled SDVoE solutions deliver a better Pro AV user experience than any other AV distribution solution, including best in class AV over IP and matrix switch solutions.DISCOVER SEMTECH'S PRO AV PRODUCTS
