InfoComm 2018: Boost for Dante video as Audinate joins SDVoE Alliance

Entire industry will benefit, says SDVoE's Kennington

SDVoE Alliance and Audinate are collaborating on an integrated AV control environment, the two parties have announced. Additionally, Audinate has joined the SDVoE Alliance as a contributing member.

“We have long heard from our customers that they want an integrated, interoperable way to control their video over IP alongside their Dante audio,” stated Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate. “Our partnership with the SDVoE Alliance and our demonstration of an integrated control platform at InfoComm is the first step toward making this interoperable IP audio and video experience a reality.”

Dante is the market-leading professional audio networking protocol, having been adopted by over 400 companies and integrated into over 1,400 commercially available products. It distributes a virtually unlimited number of high-quality, uncompressed audio channels across IP networks. 

SDVoE technology provides an end-to-end hardware and software platform for AV extension, switching, processing and control through advanced chipset technology, common control APIs and interoperability. SDVoE network architectures are based on off-the-shelf Ethernet switches. It is suited to AV distribution and processing applications that require close-to-zero latency.

Audinate’s Dante audio-over-IP solution won the race to be the standard technology for moving audio across an IT network without compromise,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “The SDVoE Alliance is proud to be the only industry organisation promoting the same no-compromise performance in the realm of video over IP. The synergies that will be created by melding the SDVoE platform and the ubiquity of Dante are huge. The entire AV industry will benefit from this partnership.”

Demonstrations of Dante Controller managing SDVoE signal routing will be featured on the SDVoE Alliance stand (N720) and the Audinate stand (C456) during InfoComm 2018. In addition, Aidan Williams from Audinate will present ‘Dante and SDVoE Integration’ on the Alliance stand each day.
