New industry alliance for interoperable AV over IP7 February 2017
A non-profit consortium of technology providers are collaborating to standardise the adoption of Ethernet to transport AV signals in professional AV environments.
The alliance seeks to bring different perspectives to the Software Defined Video over Ethernet initiative and to create an ecosystem around SDVoE technology that allows software to define AV applications.
It spans the entire ecosystem with expertise in chipsets (AptoVision, Aquantia), switches and storage (NETGEAR), and AV endpoints (Christie Digital, Sony and ZeeVee).
The SDVoE Alliance already benefits from over 35 shipping products and numerous installations in healthcare, enterprise, entertainment, hospitality, retail, houses of worship, government, military, industry and security.
Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance, said: “For years we have lived with the idea that AV/IT convergence is coming. The SDVoE Alliance and its technology finally provide the platform that is necessary to enable it. Using 10Gb Ethernet hardware to move video with flawless quality and zero latency is only the beginning. The creation of a software platform enables the development of whole new classes of applications not yet conceived. True convergence is finally here.”
The SDVoE Alliance stand is featuring a series of demonstrations at ISE highlighting SDVoE technology delivering a full-stack solution for AV over IP, zero-latency 4K60 over standard Ethernet, a complete application development platform, powerful AV processing with simple controls, and 4K60 with HDR.
Free training sessions on deploying zero-latency AV-over-IP systems using SDVoE technology are being held tomorrow (Wednesday) at 12:30, 14:00 or 16:30 in Room F002. AV system integrators, designers, consultants, installers and manufacturers can register to attend at sdvoe.org.
