SDVoE Alliance Members to Feature Applications Created Using SDVoE API throughout ISE 2017

SDVoE-API-Diagram1500x1359-0117At ISE 2017 (Amsterdam, February 7-10), seven SDVoE Alliance member companies are already showing off applications and utilities to deliver the benefits of SDVoE technology’s AV-over-IP transport and AV processing capabilities to system integrators and end users. These applications are built on the simple control and management functions provided by the SDVoE Application Programming Interface (API).

NETGEAR, an SDVoE Alliance founder, does not manufacture SDVoE endpoints. NETGEAR M4300-series switches, however, are configured out of the box for the fastest multicast processing and filtering to make getting an SDVoE system up and running easy, without complex switch configuration. The M4300 series offers a mix of copper and fiber ports to provide the right connectivity for both short- and long-haul distribution. See NETGEAR switches in action on the SDVoE Alliance stand 12-H55.

ZeeVee, another SDVoE Alliance founder, offers the MaestroZ application to manage all aspects of an SDVoE system deployment. It automatically discovers SDVoE endpoints, reports on status, and allows creation of video walls and multiviewers. MaestroZ makes it easy to manage large-scale installations, letting the user sort devices by name, zone, hardware type, and status. Visit ZeeVee on stand 10-N151.

DVIGear created DisplayNet Manager, an intuitive browser-based application, to make deployment of SDVoE systems simple from any PC or mobile device. The application features advanced management of presets and EDID. It features a built-in API terminal and console for the most sophisticated users. Visit DVIGear on stand 1-F70.

Grandbeing are adapting their popular VisualM app for iOS and Windows to work with SDVoE products. VisualM presents users with a visual representation of the system. It enables matrix switching, video walls, and multiview tiling via simple drag-and-drop user actions. Learn about Grandbeing products on stand 12-H55.

IDK Corporation delivers SDVoE capability via their IQ Control management platform. This management platform controls the entire range of IDK’s video switching and processing products, making SDVoE a seamlessly integrated part of IDK’s larger product portfolio. Visit IDK on stand 10-R120.

Aurora Multimedia has integrated the SDVoE API into their IPBaseT protocol, which is a unified control layer for offering an easy interface between a user-facing control system and multiple types of Aurora’s own products, including those for IP distribution and advanced AV processing. Visit Aurora on stand 5-R54.

Techlogix Networx provide TLXpress, a simple drag-and-drop architecture allowing hundreds of encoders and decoders to be identified and programmed in minutes. Routing presets can be triggered by a third-party control system with a single line of code. TLXpress breaks system deployment into three simple steps: plan, configure, control. Visit Techlogix on stand 5-V100.
