D-Link Joins SDVoE Alliance
Global network solutions provider sees opportunity for new products specifically designed for pro AV deployments
MONTREAL — May 30, 2019 — The SDVoE™ Alliance today announced that D-Link Systems, Inc., a leading global supplier of network solutions for home and business, has joined the alliance as an adopting member.
“We’re very excited about our new partnership with the SDVoE Alliance. As the pro AV space evolves we look to be a true partner with everyone in this market, giving as much as and more than we get,” said Matthew Vaillancourt, Sr. Director of Business Sales at D-Link. “For us, it’s not about leading in market share as it is about leading together in innovation!”
“We welcome D-Link to the SDVoE ecosystem and look forward to tapping into their networking and switching expertise to provide solutions AV professionals can depend on as we transform the matrix,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “D-Link’s participation and support will expand the knowledge base that guides AV designers and users to take full advantage of the flexibility and scalability of Ethernet to deliver 4K video without compromise.”
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.
D-Link designs, develops, and manufactures award-winning products that connect homes, businesses, and services providers. It implements and supports unified network solutions that integrate switching, wireless, broadband, IP surveillance, and cloud-based network management.
