Video Over 1G Ethernet: the ugly truth

13:30-14:00
Justin Kennington – SDVoE Alliance
Commercial Solutions Theatre Hall 8 – free to attend, no pre-booking necessary

Description:

1G Ethernet is a dead end for AV distribution. The compromises required to squeeze 18 gigabits (or more!) of 4K HDR video into a less-than 1G pipe are unacceptable – and no longer required. 10G Ethernet is being adopted at a shockingly fast rate – over 75% of small and medium businesses have deployed 10G already. Communication industries succeed when they take advantage of the fastest data transfer speeds possible, and pro AV is no different.

Objectives:

  • Learn about the “codec triangle” – the tradeoff between image quality, latency, and bandwidth
  • Compare image quality between codecs like MJPEG at 1G against pixel-pipeline codecs working at 10G
  • Consider the effects of latency on user experience and learn to choose the right codec for your application

Networking fast track: what is a modular ethernet switch and what does it mean to AV?

14:30-15:00
Laurent Masia – NETGEAR
Commercial Solutions Theatre Hall 8 – free to attend, no pre-booking necessary

Description:

Historically, Ethernet switches come in fixed configurations (16-port, 48-port, etc.). However, as AV and IT collide, a new class of switch has come to market. The modular Ethernet switch combines the configurability of a matrix switch with the power and scalability of Ethernet to allow systems more custom-tailored to each end user’s needs.

Objectives:

  • Learn about this new class of Ethernet switch
  • Understand how to configure and design AV systems with a flexible modular Ethernet switch at the core
  • Compare and contrast the flexibility of a hybrid copper/fiber modular Ethernet switch against the traditional configurable matrix

Networking fast track: what is multicast?

12:30-13:00
Laurent Masia – NETGEAR
Commercial Solutions Theatre Hall 8 – free to attend, no pre-booking necessary

Description:

As more AV distribution moves to IT infrastructure, it is critical for AV system designers and installers to understand some of the basic networking protocols that make this possible. Multicast is a crucial technology that allows high bandwidth streams to move around a network without overwhelming the entire network.

Objectives:

  • Learn what multicasting is, and why it is necessary for any practical AV over IP solution
  • Identify tools for configuring and troubleshooting multicast networks
  • Understand the difference between multicasting and VLANs, and a little bit about how they interact

SDVoE Partner Consultant Program Kickoff Meeting

13:00-14:00
Room G109 – free information session for all AV designers and consultants

This is the first meeting for the SDVoE Partner Consultant Program. The goal of the program is to provide guidance to integrators, installers and end users in leveraging the SDVoE standard for high performance AV network deployments. All interested AV designers and consultants are invited to attend the meeting to learn how they can join the program and benefit from participation. 

SDVoE Case Studies – Part 1

14:30-15:30
Room G109 – free to attend

SDVoE-based AV-over-IP networks have been deployed in many different environments including education, healthcare, enterprise, government and military. We’ll be bringing you expert analysis from consultants and integrators who where on the spot. Stay tuned for names and places.

To get all the details about SDVoE Case Studies – Part 1 as they become available, please leave us your contact information.

* These fields are required.

 

SDVoE Case Studies – Part 2

16:00-17:00
Room G109 – free to attend

SDVoE-based AV-over-IP networks have been deployed in many different environments including education, healthcare, enterprise, government and military. We’ll be bringing you expert analysis from consultants and integrators who where on the spot. Stay tuned for names and places.

How Software Defined Video Over Ethernet is Reshaping Pro AV

10:00-11:30
Justin Kennington – SDVoE Alliance
AVIXA AV/IT Workshop – Room D203
1.5 RU offered

Description:

Launched only a year ago at ISE 2017 by a founding group including Christie Digital, NETGEAR and Sony, the SDVoE Alliance is the fastest growing technology consortium in pro AV, and the only industry body driving standardization in AV over IP. Come learn what progress the alliance has made and how its core technology benefits designers, programmers and end users by offering lower cost, fewer points of failure, and expanded and more flexible capabilities than traditional AV distribution systems.

Objectives:

  • Understand the need for and drive towards standardization
  • See how interoperability and an open API help to create a platform for the future of AV
  • Compare the traditional hardware-centric system design approach to the new software-defined video approach
  • Understand how to leverage software-defined systems to address user needs more effectively

New architectures for simplified video system design

Karl Johnson – Christie
10:00-10:30
Commercial Solutions Theatre Hall 8 – free to attend, no pre-booking necessary

Description:

Software-defined Video over Ethernet offers an approach to system architecture that is dramatically simplified compared to traditional hardware-centric approaches. SDVoE systems offer lower cost, fewer points of failure, and expanded and more flexible capabilities.

Objectives:

  • Compare the traditional hardware-centric approach to system design to the software-defined video approach
  • Understand how to leverage software-defined systems to address user needs more efficiently
  • Learn how SDVoE systems are flexible – recreate a matrix switch, a video wall, a multiviewer, or a KVM without any changes to hardware

Networking Crash Course for AV Systems Engineers

Laurent Masia – NETGEAR
13:30-14:30
AVIXA AV/IT Workshop – Room D203
1 RU offered

Description:

More and more of AV distribution is moving to Ethernet networks. AV system designers and installers must familiarize themselves with the important concepts that make these new systems work. Even if you aren’t planning to become an IT systems admin, life gets easier when you can speak their language.

Objectives:

  • Learn the basics of important networking topics for AV: multicast, VLANs, routing vs switching
  • Understand the different switch topologies and concepts: non-blocking, spine and leaf, link aggregation
  • Apply calculations of video bandwidth to network design in order to ensure a flawlessly working AV over IP system
