SDVoE Alliance to Offer AV-over-IP Education Sessions at InfoComm China

AVIXA Summit Program sessions to focus on AV networking topics

MONTREAL — Aug. 22, 2018 — At InfoComm China 2018 in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, Sept. 5-7, the SDVoE™ Alliance will offer 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.

The sessions will be presented by Holden Guo of NETGEAR, an SDVoE Alliance founding member company.

“AV-over-IP has a long history in China, with many well-developed solutions already on the market featuring high compression and high latency performance,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “We are excited to showcase the quality of the SDVoE AV-over-IP platform in China and to demonstrate how integrators and end users can enjoy the flexibility and scalability of Ethernet while benefitting from the performance of a matrix switch – 4K video without compromise, without latency, and without image artifacts.”

Attendees to the SDVoE Alliance 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.

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.
