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 video resolutions with data speeds up to 18Gbps across 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 limited infrastructure of HDBaseT™. Colour Space Conversion reduces the data rate of the HDMI signal by converting the colour space from 4:4:4 or 4:2:2 to a lower format. Within Colour Space Conversion technology the native resolution and frame rate remain constant from end to end. The only part of the signal that is converted during transmission is the colour. Blustream CSC products do not support HDR10+ or the dynamic variation of Dolby Vision due to the way these specific variations of dynamic HDR (dHDR) 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.

Product Features

  • Pre-configured Custom Pro matrix bundle with 16 x video inputs, 16 x video outputs, Audio breakout, and 2-way IR control

  • Supports 4K UHD video up to 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 (18Gbps) over HDBaseT™ using Colour Space Conversion up to 70m at 4K 60Hz 4:4:4, or up to 100m at 1080p

  • HDBaseT™ CSC output boards feature independent automatic downscaling of up to 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 video input to the following formats (HDMI outputs are native pass-through):
