Advantech Joins SDVoE Alliance

Plans to add SDVoE devices to broad portfolio of 4K video processing and transport products will focus on medical, industrial and pro AV applications

MONTREAL — Jan. 28, 2021 — The SDVoE Alliance® today announced that Advantech, a world leader in providing high-quality, trusted and innovative video solutions, has joined the SDVoE Alliance as an adopting member.

In recognition of the industry-standard-ecosystem approach that the SDVoE Alliance have brought to low-latency, 4K, AV-over-IP distribution, Advantech plans to introduce a series of SDVoE-compliant products to their broad portfolio of 4K video processing and transport products with a particular focus on medical, industrial and pro AV applications. The initial products will include bidirectional HDMI extenders and multi-port equivalents that will be compatible with other SDVoE-ecosystem offerings.

“We are excited to join the SDVoE Alliance and we look forward to cooperating with other members to provide comprehensive, advanced, AV-over-IP solutions,” said Ted Feng, director, Video Solutions Master Division, Advantech. “In addition to technical excellence, collaboration between suppliers to ensure interoperability is a key aspect of ecosystem partnerships, and this is valued by our customers”.

“We welcome Advantech to the SDVoE Alliance and congratulate them on their fourth-place ranking on the Best Taiwan Global Brands list for 2020,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “We look forward to their coming product introductions that will benefit SDVoE members and customers worldwide.”

All AV distribution and processing applications that demand zero-latency and 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.
