NETGEAR and SDVoE Launch a 10G Network Switch with Integrated HDMI

At ISE 2019 (Amsterdam, Feb. 5-8, stand 3-B150), the SDVoE Alliance will feature the world’s first implementation of HDMI connectivity within an Ethernet switch. HDMI input and output modules that plug directly into a NETGEAR M4300-96X 10G Modular Managed Switch eliminate the need for standalone encoders and decoders to support in-rack video sources and destinations, simplifying design and installation and reducing overall system cost. With this introduction, IT and AV are combined at the integrated product level, rather than purely at the infrastructure level.

To take complexity out of AV-over-IP deployments, NETGEAR created the SDVoE-ready M4300-96X Modular Managed Switch that’s preconfigured for multicast Zero Touch network configuration. Users select the combination of HDMI, copper, PoE+ and fiber M4300-96X port expansion cards that fit requirements, insert the cards, connect SDVoE encoders and decoders and power on the switch. SDVoE systems with symmetric input-output configurations are supported such as 48×48, but asymmetric solutions such as 24×72 are just as easily accommodated.
