AV-over-IP Shootout in SDVoE Booth

At InfoComm 2019, the SDVoE Alliance will feature a simple demonstration of two video systems in parallel, one an SDVoE network and the other a traditional matrix switch design. Each system consists of four 4K displays arranged in a 2×2 video wall. A single touch panel and control system will drive both video systems simultaneously.

“It’s time to leave the matrix switch behind us. Our industry’s future is Ethernet, and this demonstration illustrates that SDVoE delivers that future with the performance we’ve come to expect, and capabilities not previously imagined,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “Today’s successful AV implementations are focused on experience, not on bits and bytes. The SDVoE platform makes it simple to deliver an experience unmatched by any other technology, old or new.”

Key takeaways from the head-to-head SDVoE vs matrix switch set up include proof that SDVoE provides:

  • Built-in multiview compositing capability without added hardware
  • Synchronized video wall processing that eliminates image tearing and motion jitter
  • Instant switching for seamless content transitions
  • Image scaling without the usual one- or two-frame latency penalty
  • A standardized API that makes it simple to manage SDVoE devices via legacy control systems
  • Multi-vendor interoperability that reduces the risk of stranded investment as business needs change (A mix of receivers and transmitters from Christie, ZeeVee, Altimium, Aurora Multimedia, DVIGear, IDK, Kramer and PureLink will all be part of the SDVoE network.)
  • Substantial cost saving for installation, maintenance, system changes and expansion
