Niveo Professional Joins SDVoE Alliance

AV-focused 10G switch manufacturer to work hand-in-hand with SDVoE system integrators to provide end-to-end system solutions

MONTREAL — Nov. 5, 2018 — The SDVoE™ Alliance today announced that Niveo Professional, a leading global provider of AV-focused networking products, has joined the alliance as an adopting member.

Niveo Professional networking products are not sold online, but only through specialized integrators worldwide. The product range provides installers the opportunity to deploy basic systems for small private residences to the most diverse network infrastructure for large commercial installations.

“With the industry moving from analog infrastructure to full IP-based 4K integration, the need for AV-focused networking products and expertise is clear,” said Arthur de Jager, managing director at Niveo. “Our 10G switches are a natural fit with SDVoE and we look forward to working with other alliance members and SDVoE Design Partners on projects around the world.”

“Niveo Professional is a welcome addition to the SDVoE ecosystem,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “Their experience with AV networking along with their commitment to supporting their channel partners will ensure integrators have a trusted ally in their quest 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.
