SDVoE 20/20: In-booth Education Sessions to be Offered at InfoComm 2018

20-minute interactive presentations will cover AV-over-IP case studies, networking topics, control software interoperability, AV/IT convergence considerations, and much more

MONTREAL — May 16, 2018— At InfoComm 2018 (Las Vegas, June 6-8, booth N720) the SDVoE™ Alliance will feature industry experts presenting 20-minute, in-booth education sessions on a variety of topics essential for system integrators, designers, consultants, installers and manufacturers who want to understand the new AV-over-IP paradigm — Software Defined Video over Ethernet.

“We’re calling this series of education sessions ‘SDVoE 20/20’,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “Attendees can choose from more than 20 sessions, invest 20 minutes to learn about various aspects of AV-over-IP in easily digestible chunks, and someone at each session will leave with $20. Those are the best odds in Vegas!”

Presentations will start on the hour and half hour throughout all three days of the show. A full schedule of all sessions can be obtained in the SDVoE Alliance booth N720. Pre-registration for the sessions and prize drawings is available on the SDVoE Alliance website at
