MONTREAL — May 23, 2018 — The SDVoE™ Alliance today announced that PTN Electronics Limited, a global ODM/OEM supplier to the pro AV industry, has joined the alliance as a contributing member.

“SDVoE technology is the best high-end solution for video/audio distribution in a wide variety of applications ranging from control rooms to enterprise, education and government applications,” said Robert Zeng, the Product Manager at PTN. “We definitely see a big market potential for SDVoE-based products among our existing customers and with new accounts. Selected customers are already planning complete SDVoE product lines using our ODM services.”

“PTN’s special contribution to the SDVoE Alliance is their ability to design, develop and manufacture SDVoE-compliant devices that give OEMs a jump start in delivering a wide variety of innovative products that exploit the SDVoE platform,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. ‘We welcome them to the SDVoE ecosystem.”

PTN’s products will be on display at InfoComm 2018 (Las Vegas, June 6-8) in booth C2300.

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 offer substantial cost savings and greater system flexibility and scalability over traditional approaches – such as point-to-point extension and circuit-based AV matrix switching.
