netgear infocomm 2021

NETGEAR added more than 35 ProAV manufacturers to its partner program since January 2020, bringing the total number to 56. As the world continues to adopt technologies such as audio, video and control over Ethernet as their delivery method of choice, NETGEAR and its partners are working together to pave the way for new and improved experiences across the developing industry.

AV-over-IP is a fast-growing market and for good reasons: high quality, low-latency video and audio distribution with increased scalability and far more room for innovation. This has led to NETGEAR’s increased commitment to AV-over-IP, which includes a range of products and dedicated support services. The company’s flagship M4250, M4300 and M4500 series of high-performance, flexible switches are engineered for AV-over-IP and recognized by its tens of thousands of users as best-in-class.

NETGEAR’s recent Pro AV partnerships include, among others:

  • AMX by HARMAN (a Samsung company): NETGEAR professional AV switches are now the recommended choice for all AMX AV over IP installations worldwide.
  • Biamp: Biamp has endorsed NETGEAR’s AVB-enabled ProAV switches. The list of supported switches from Biamp includes all 11 models of the AV Line of M4250 fully managed switches which have recently also received certification from the Avnu Alliance for both AVB and Milan operability.
  • Crestron: From conference rooms to college campuses, the combination of NETGEAR M4300 and Crestron DM NVX has already been proven around the world. NETGEAR’s M4300 series switches were also recently certified by Crestron to enable out-of-box deployment of AV-over-IP.
  • Extron: Extron has certified NETGEAR’s M4250 and M4300 ProAV series switches to work seamlessly with their powerful NAV Series of Pro AV over IP products creating a powerful solution for today’s IP-based AV workflows.
  • Kramer Electronics: Kramer has formed a global partnership with NETGEAR to deliver complete end-to-end solutions for AV over IP infrastructure and further accelerate Ethernet-based AV distribution in professional environments.
  • Marshall Electronics: Marshall has partnered with NETGEAR to offer three of the company’s M4250 network switches for Pro AV applications. The M4250’s PoE+/PoE++ capabilities work seamlessly with Marshall’s IP cameras and controllers, providing an easy-to-set-up IP camera/controller/switch solution for its customers.
  • NDI: Instant configuration of Network Device Interface (NDI) on NETGEAR’s popular M4250 AV Line of switches through a unique NDI configuration profile. With NDI and NETGEAR, content creators can create high-quality audio and video content anywhere and share content with their audiences worldwide over an IP network.

Leveraging the successful M4300 line of managed switches, NETGEAR designed the new M4250 series of switches from the ground up with input from AV integrators, users and partners. NETGEAR drew upon over 25 years of networking experience to ensure these ProAV-targeted switches have what it takes for the demanding rigors of sending audio, video, and control signals over an IP network. As a result, NETGEAR is now the most recommended switch vendor in the world for AV-over-IP deployments.
