The SDVoE Alliance has announced its new AV Network Design Assistance Program to help system designers, integrators and end users implement best practices to get the most from AV network deployments in education, healthcare, enterprise, entertainment, hospitality, retail, house of worship, government, military, industry and security applications.
Networking experts, based in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific, will assist with the design of SDVoE systems to help customers realise the substantial cost savings and greater system flexibility and scalability SDVoE has to offer.
“As the members of the SDVoE Alliance usher in the era of ‘The Matrix Transformed’ by offering zero-latency, uncompromised video performance over Ethernet, there can be the need for expert guidance in the intricacies of network design,” says Charles Dobson, director of development for the SDVoE Alliance. “We are pleased to be able to offer assistance, whether that means initial consultation at the start of a project, final design review before deployment, or anything in between. Help is just an email away.”
All AV distribution and processing applications that demand zero-latency, uncompromised video can benefit from SDVoE technology, which 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 thus offering substantial cost savings and greater system flexibility and scalability over traditional approaches such as point-to-point extension and circuit-based AV matrix switching.
The SDVoE Alliance is a nonprofit consortium of technology providers collaborating to standardise the adoption of Ethernet to transport AV signals in professional AV environments, and to create an ecosystem around SDVoE technology allowing software to define AV applications.
The SDVoE Alliance founding members are Aquantia, Christie Digital, NETGEAR, Semtech, Sony and ZeeVee.
