AVPro Edge Becomes Contributing Member of SDVoE Alliance
AVPro Edge integrates SDVoE technology MXNet 10G AV-over-IP ecosystem
MONTREAL (March 7, 2023) – The SDVoE Alliance, a nonprofit consortium of technology providers collaborating to standardize the adoption of Ethernet to transport AV signals in professional AV environments, announces AVPro Edge has joined the SDVoE Alliance as a contributing member.
AVPro Edge’s latest innovation, the MXNet 10G AV-over-IP ecosystem, arrives ready to meet the design challenges for upscale commercial and residential applications head-on. Based on SDVoE technology, MXNet 10G uses a 10Gbps Ethernet network as a bridge between system endpoints and the software platform comprising audio, video, USB, KVM and control signals. SDVoE’s ASIC-based technology consolidates a host of features and formerly individual component platforms into a readily-available form factor, avoiding supply chain issues associated with designs based on FPGA architecture, which is currently in excessive global demand.
“AVPro Edge has built a reputation of building stable, high-performance video distribution products that are designed to address today’s integration challenges,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “We are pleased to welcome AVPro Edge to the SDVoE Alliance. We believe the industry will find immense value in AVPro Edge’s innovative solutions built upon SDVoE’s technology.”
Tom Devine, Marketing Director with AVPro Edge shared with SDVoE, “We want to be the manufacturer that integrators come to for ALL video distribution needs, that means we need to cover all the ways integrators are moving video signals. AV over IP is a segment of the industry that is growing, and while 1G solutions are available from AVPro Edge, we want to do everything we can to deliver the most optimized signal to the screen. To do that we looked to the Alliance as a technology partner. Using SDVoE, we can develop a stable technology to deliver jaw-dropping video quality distributed throughout a network switch. The bandwidth needed to deliver quality video is ever increasing, by using a technology that’s 10x larger than traditional AV-over-IP methods allows us to pass the types of signals the end user wants to see, like 4K, HDR, Dolby Atmos, and Dolby Vision.
“AVPro Edge will continue to develop products we know integrators are needing on site in the latest and greatest installations. By adding SDVoE products to AVPro Edge’s stable, it allows us to provide solutions to an even wider audience.”
In recent years, industry demands for remote data collection and real-time content management have dramatically increased AV-over-IP applications. AV-over-IP technology supports high-quality audio/video transmission over long distances without latency, making it ideal for content streaming applications. 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.
About the SDVoE Alliance
SDVoE is an initialism for “Software Defined Video over Ethernet”. The SDVoE Alliance is a nonprofit consortium of technology providers collaborating to standardize the adoption of Ethernet to transport AV signals in professional AV environments and to create an ecosystem around SDVoE technology allowing software to define AV applications. The alliance operates the free SDVoE Academy training platform, participates in tradeshows and conferences, publishes white papers and case studies, and promotes SDVoE technology, and solutions based on the technology, to system integrators, designers, consultants, and end users. Steering members of the SDVoE Alliance are Black Box, Christie Digital, IDK Corporation, NETGEAR, Semtech, and ZeeVee. All interested parties are invited to join the alliance and work toward its goals. For more information, visit sdvoe.org or connect with us on Twitter @SDVoE, LinkedIn, and the SDVoE blog.
