SDVoE Alliance Heads to ISE 2020 with 50 Members and more than 800 Certified Design Partners

Fastest growing industry alliance in pro AV gathers manufacturers, designers, integrators and end users ushering in the era of “The Matrix Transformed”

MONTREAL — Feb. 8, 2020 — Launched just three years ago at ISE 2017 with the goal of standardizing the adoption of Ethernet to transport AV signals in professional AV environments, the SDVoE Alliance® has grown to 50 member companies shipping more than 200 interoperable products. In the run-up to ISE, Alltek Technology Corp. became a contributing member and seven new companies became adopting members including aegis Multimedia, Inc., Analog Way, Creator Corporation, KanexPro, Edgecore Networks, Megapixel VR and Teracue. HDCVT Technology upgraded their membership to become a contributing member. In addition, more than 800 SDVoE Certified Design Partners have been trained and certified.

“It is clear that AV professionals are embracing the more open and standardized approach to signal management offered by SDVoE and that they appreciate the integrated functions offered by SDVoE such as scaling, instant switching, video wall image cropping, multiview compositing, independent routing of audio and video, audio downmixing and USB transport,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “SDVoE delivers capabilities far beyond that of a traditional matrix switch and we are thrilled to be having such a profound effect on the industry, seeing the demise of dedicated matrix switchers and proprietary AV over IP.

A variety of cases studies demonstrating “The Matrix Transformed” will be presented on the SDVoE Alliance stand 1-F40 at ISE (RAI Amsterdam Feb. 11-14). The full schedule and pre-registration for the sessions is available on the SDVoE Alliance website at

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.

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 Aquantia, Christie Digital, NETGEAR, Semtech, 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.
