SDVoE Alliance Partners with CEDIA to Present Educational Webinar: The Essential Download on AV over IP

Moderator David Meyer, CEDIA’s director of technical curriculum, and panelist Justin Kennington, SDVoE Alliance president, tackle the tough questions

MONTREAL — May 9, 2017 —  On Thursday, May 18 at 4 PM EDT (UTC-4), CEDIA’s director of technical curriculum David Meyer and SDVoE Alliance president Justin Kennington will present an educational webinar titled The Essential Download on AV over IP.

In a landscape of ever increasing demands on video performance, AV distribution over Ethernet continues to evolve and is now reaching the pivot point where benefits may far outweigh the compromises. This webinar will address the questions: What are the options available? What are the pros and cons of the different approaches? Will AV over IP really take over from the matrix switch as the go-to residential solution?

“CEDIA is renown for the depth, breadth and quality of its training and education programs,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “Our industry is hungry for AV-over-IP standards and education and that is a central mission of the SDVoE Alliance, so I am thrilled to be working with CEDIA to help clear up some of the confusion.”

Registration for the webinar is in the events section of the CEDIA website.
