LAS VEGAS — An industry consortium driving standardization of AV signal transport over Ethernet and an audio networking technology provider announced plans to collaborate.
At InfoComm, the software-defined video over Ethernet group, SDVoE Alliance, along with Dante protocol developer Audinate, announced collaboration on an integrated AV control environment via the Dante audio networking system.
According to the SDVoE Alliance, there are numerous markets and applications that can benefit from an integrated multichannel audio and video over IP solution, including corporate conference rooms, lecture halls in higher education, digital signage in retail, sports books in casinos, and houses of worship.
“We have long heard from our customers that they want an integrated, interoperable way to control their video over IP alongside their Dante audio,” said Lee Ellison, Audinate CEO. “Our partnership with the SDVoE Alliance and our demonstration of an integrated control platform at InfoComm is the first step toward making this interoperable IP audio and video experience a reality.”
SDVoE technology 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 cost savings, flexibility and scalability over traditional approaches, the alliance said.
Dante distributes a virtually unlimited number of high-quality, uncompressed audio channels across IP networks, and has been adopted by more than 400 companies and integrated into over 1,400 commercially available products.
In addition, Audinate announced that it has joined the SDVoE Alliance as a contributing member.
