Aquantia Corp., a pioneer and market leader in high-speed Ethernet connectivity
solutions for data centres, enterprise infrastructure and client connectivity has
partnered with AptoVision, the pioneer in video over Ethernet technology to
announce the industry’s first fully integrated single-chip solution for implementing
Software-Defined Video over Ethernet on 10GBASE-T infrastructure. The
combination of Aquantia’s AQcite FPGA-programmable Multi-Gigabit Ethernet PHY
with AptoVision’s BlueRiver technology represents an industry milestone by
providing the most power-, size-, and cost-efficient implementation of the new
SDVoE standard, to leverage the ubiquity of Ethernet. The new solution will be on
display at ISE 2017 (Amsterdam, February 7-10) in the SDVoE Alliance stand 12-
H55.

Aquantia recently announced the AQcite product line, and specifically the AQLX107,
the industry’s first FPGA-programmable multi-gigabit Ethernet PHY device targeting
a vast range of applications such as Audio-Visual (AV) over Ethernet, machine
vision, data centre, enterprise, 5G wireless, industrial, metro environments and
more. AQLX107 integrates a programmable FPGA processing fabric with a 10GBASE-
T PHY, to create a single-chip hardware platform. Combined with AptoVision’s
BlueRiver technology, the AQLX107 can be used to transmit true 4K60 video across
off-the-shelf 10G Ethernet networks and standard category cable with zero frame
latency. Audio and video processing, including upscaling, downscaling, and multi-
image compositing are all realizable on the SDVoE hardware and software platform
made possible by the AQLX107. This feature set enables applications across the
complete spectrum of AV signal management. The solution offers uncompressed 4K
streaming over standard Ethernet switches and unique support for HDMI 2.0a and
HDR content.

“By deploying the combination of Aquantia’s AQcite FPGA-Programmable multi-
gigabit Ethernet PHY with AptoVision’s BlueRiver NT+ offering, our customers enjoy
the benefit of a power and cost optimized solution while leveraging the large
ecosystem of Ethernet networking equipment to scale their pro-AV architecture,’
said Amir Bar-Niv, VP Marketing at Aquantia. “We’re excited to drive SDVoE into the
market together with AptoVision and the other partners of the alliance with our
unique single-chip solution.’

“Aquantia’s presence as a founding member of the SDVoE alliance speaks volumes
about the diverse ecosystem of member companies in the alliance,’ said Kamran
Ahmed, AptoVision CEO. “With built-in compatibility for SDVoE technology, the
AQcite chip delivers a compelling new type of platform upon which SDVoE
applications can operate.’

Free training sessions on deploying zero-latency AV-over-IP systems using SDVoE
technology will be held Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 12:30, 14:00 or 16:30 in room F002.
All AV system integrators, designers, consultants, installers and manufacturers are
invited to register to attend at sdvoe.org.
