The announcement comes as the alliance heads to ISE 2018 in celebration of its first anniversary. At the show, the alliance stand 3-B150 will focus on the advantages of converged AV and IT infrastructure, which can only be realized with 10G networking and SDVoE technology. Visitors to the Kramer stand 1-F20 will experience “The New Age of Pro AV” designed for IT. Kramer will showcase their latest 4K HDR HDCP 2.2 AV signal management portfolio, code-free cloud-based control platform, enterprise management software solution, wireless presentation and collaboration innovations and game-changing audio DSP solutions.
“Kramer has undergone an exciting transition in the past few years, from a respected manufacturer of AV products into a leading provider of end-to-end solutions that enable the convergence of AV and IT systems. What drove Kramer to this position are the same inevitable market forces that created the need for AV-over-IP standardization and lead to the SDVoE Alliance,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “Kramer and SDVoE are in perfect alignment, and we look forward to working with Kramer to upend the Pro AV signal management market as we build new leaders in the space.”
“We are thrilled to join the rapidly growing SDVoE Alliance. Kramer has always been committed to spearheading technological evolutions and the message carried by the alliance resonates well with our AV/IT strategic roadmap”, said Raviv Kramer, Deputy CEO at Kramer. “We look forward to joining the other alliance members and helping drive the industry to this new and exciting age of IP”, added Kramer.
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 offer substantial cost savings and greater system flexibility and scalability over traditional approaches – such as point-to-point extension and circuit-based AV matrix switching.
