Seamless AV at Sea with HDBaseT



Superyacht O‘PTASIA is an 84.73m/278ft custom motor yacht designed and styled for the ultimate yachting vacation, with first-rate features ensuring the comfort and luxury of guests.

O’PTASIA offers a rich audiovisual experience, with five cinema systems and 26 displays throughout the yacht. Uncompromised transmission quality, performance and aesthetics were paramount for a successful installation. HDBaseT was selected as the video distribution platform and Blustream provided their latest solutions to deliver seamless 4K ultra-high-definition transmission to each display in the elaborate AV system, providing a superior end-user experience.

The installation was challenging due to the size of the yacht and the many displays and sources. Blustream created an infrastructure and system configuration that allows five 8×8 HDBaseT matrices to interact seamlessly and without cable clutter on the same control system. The entire 26-display system (each located 80m apart from the next) is connected through a CAT6 cable infrastructure. The Blustream receivers connect directly to the CAT6 cabling, requiring no additional power wiring. The results are the most optimized AV luxury at sea! Check out Blustream’s video.
