CWIN Joins SDVoE Alliance

ODM company provides design and production services to help OEMs get SDVoE-compliant products to market quickly  

MONTREAL — June 12, 2017 — The SDVoE™ Alliance today announced that CWIN Technology Inc., a leading original device manufacturer (ODM), has joined the alliance as an adopting member and will work toward the organization’s goals of standardizing the adoption of Ethernet to transport AV signals in professional AV environments, and creating an ecosystem around SDVoE technology that allows software to define AV applications.

“CWIN has been designing HDMI interconnection devices and system solutions for more than 10 years and working with the AptoVision HDMI-over-IP technology for over 5 years,” said James Chen, project manager, CWIN. “Joining the alliance is a natural fit as we and our customers turn our focus to high-performance 4K60Hz 4:4:4 HDR video system solutions.”

“We welcome CWIN to the SDVoE Alliance and look forward to their ability to assist OEMs in delivering a wide variety of innovative products that exploit the SDVoE platform,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “Their participation helps round out the worldwide ecosystem that is developing around SDVoE technology.”

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 will feature member products and demonstrations at InfoComm 2017 (Orlando, June 14-16) in booth 3729.
