Colour Space Conversion (CSC) Technology in HDBaseT™

Due to the data rate of HDBaseT™ technology being capped at 10.2Gbps, it is unable to pass the latest native 4K UHD resolutions of 4K 60Hz 4:4:4. There is now a requirement to integrate vido resolutions with data speeds up to 18Gbps accross a multi-zone AV environment. Blustream have implemented CSC (Colour Space Conversion) technology into our latest products to ensure 4K HDR signals can now be supported over the 10.2Gbps infrastructure of HDBaseT™. Colour Space Conversion reduces the data rate of the HDMI signal by converting the colour space (or Wide Colour Gamut) from 4:4:4 or 4:2:2 to a lower format. Within Colour Space Conversion technology the native resolution, frame rate and colour depth all remain constant from end to end. The only part of the signal that is converted during transmission is the colour gamut. Blustream CSC products do not support HDR10+ or Dolby Vision due to the way these specific variations of HDR are encoded. These codecs transmit repeated metadata packets throughout the transmission of any media making it impossible at this stage to convert in the same way using CSC technology.
