SDVoE Alliance World Tour Heads to Paris: AV-over-IP Training to be Presented at SATIS-Screen4All 2017

Session titled “How Software Defined Video Over Ethernet is Reshaping Pro AV” will familiarize system integrators, designers, consultants, installers and manufacturers with the new paradigm

MONTREAL — Oct. 24, 2017 — At SATIS-Screen4All 2017 in Paris on November 8, 14:00-14:45, the SDVoE™ Alliance will present a training session titled “How Software Defined Video Over Ethernet is Reshaping Pro AV”. It will focus 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 session will be presented in French by Laurent Masia of NETGEAR, an SDVoE Alliance founding member. Attendees will come away with a thorough understanding of the benefits of standardization, how interoperability and an open API help create a platform for the future of AV, and how to leverage software-defined systems to address user needs more effectively.

“The SDVoE Alliance World Tour has delivered very well attended education and training sessions in the US, Australia, Latin America and elsewhere in Europe,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “We are excited to introduce this new AV-over-IP platform in France and to demonstrate how integrators and end users can take advantage of the flexibility and scalability of Ethernet to deliver 4K video without compromise – without latency and without 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 the SDVoE Alliance training session 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.

Registration is on the SATIS-Screen4All website.

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.
