Kramer Electronics Intros SDVoE-Based, AV-Over-IP Transceiver

kramer kds8Kramer Electronics’ KDS-8 is a zero-latency, SDVoE-based (10G) AV-over-IP transceiver for distributing AV signals via Ethernet over copper cable. The KDS-8 streams up to 4K@60Hz (4:4:4) resolution signals over a 10G network interface, providing lossless compression. The KDS-8 is a fully standard and compliant SDVoE codec, and it enables compatibility with other software and hardware streaming platforms.

Kramer’s KDS−8 is a transceiver and as such can be set to be either an encoder or decoder. As an encoder, it encodes and sends the HDMI input along with IR, RS-232 and analog audio over an IP network. As a decoder, it receives the encoded signal and decodes it for output. The KDS-8 also features an unbalanced analog audio port for embedding audio into the signal.

Kramer’s $2,000 KDS-8 4K SDVoE transceiver is designed for distributing AV signals in conference rooms, meeting rooms and classrooms. Here are more detailed specs.
