Full Schedule of SDVoE Alliance Training Events to be Held at InfoComm 2017

Free training sessions and InfoComm Workshops will familiarize system integrators, designers, consultants, installers and manufacturers with the new AV-over-IP paradigm — Software Defined Video Over Ethernet

MONTREAL — April 24, 2017 — At InfoComm 2017 (Orlando, June 14-16), founding members of the SDVoE Alliance will present a series of training sessions focusing on Ethernet as the transport for AV signals in professional AV environments and the ecosystem around the SDVoE platform which allows software to define AV applications.

“Education is a central mission of the SDVoE Alliance and it’s particularly important now that every major manufacturer of AV signal management gear seems to have an IP solution and disturbingly, many are making overblown claims,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “The matrix switch truly is dead, but meeting the performance capabilities of the matrix switch cannot be done using high compression and 1G networks. It’s only possible using 10G networks. Only SDVoE technology delivers 4K without compromise, offering the flexibility and scalability of Ethernet, without latency and image artifacts.”

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.

Attendees to all SDVoE Alliance training sessions will learn what they need to know to leverage the SDVoE standard for high performance AV network deployments in education, healthcare, enterprise, entertainment, hospitality, retail, houses of worship, government, military, industry and security.

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 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 and consultants. Training and installer certification are also part of the mandate. The SDVoE Alliance founding members are AptoVision, Aquantia, Christie Digital, NETGEAR, Sony and ZeeVee. All interested parties are invited to join the alliance and work toward its goals. For more information, visit and follow us on Twitter @SDVoE.
