The alliance has grown to 50 member companies shipping more than 200 interoperable products
Launched just three years ago at ISE 2017 with the goal of standardizing the adoption of Ethernet to transport AV signals in professional AV environments, the SDVoE Alliance has grown to 50 member companies shipping more than 200 interoperable products. In the run-up to ISE, Alltek Technology Corp. became a contributing member and seven new companies became adopting members including aegis Multimedia, Inc., Analog Way, Creator Corporation, KanexPro, Edgecore Networks, Megapixel VR and Teracue. HDCVT Technology upgraded their membership to become a contributing member. In addition, more than 800 SDVoE Certified Design Partners have been trained and certified.
“It is clear that AV professionals are embracing the more open and standardized approach to signal management offered by SDVoE and that they appreciate the integrated functions offered by SDVoE such as scaling, instant switching, video wall image cropping, multiview compositing, independent routing of audio and video, audio downmixing and USB transport,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “SDVoE delivers capabilities far beyond that of a traditional matrix switch and we are thrilled to be having such a profound effect on the industry, seeing the demise of dedicated matrix switchers and proprietary AV over IP.
A variety of cases studies demonstrating “The Matrix Transformed” will be presented on the SDVoE Alliance stand 1-F40 at ISE (RAI Amsterdam Feb. 11-14). The full schedule and pre-registration for the sessions is available on the SDVoE Alliance website at https://sdvoe.org/events/ise-2020-training-registration/.
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.
