This month we are proud to announce that two Contributing Members of the SDVoE Alliance have been promoted to Steering Member status. Black Box and IDK Corporation will join Founding Members Christie Digital, NETGEAR, Semtech, and ZeeVee as the members who drive the future of the Alliance and sit on the board of directors. Grandbeing maintains their board seat, and represents the interests of all Contributing Members.
To commemorate the promotion of these companies, I sat down with each Steering Member for a catch up on the state of SDVoE. This blog series will bring you each of the interviews. Strap in and get ready to binge watch – there is a LOT to cover and I think we hit it all.
In this post I sat down with Bob Michaels of ZeeVee. We touched on a lot of topics, including ZeeVee’s history as one of the earliest adopters of SDVoE (before it was SDVoE!), and the insight that lead Bob and his team to completely skip HDBaseT and move straight into AV over IP. Bob even claims that ZeeVee pushed NETGEAR into the pro AV space, as my interview with Laurent Masia seems to confirm.
