This is my third discussion, in less than a year, with NETGEAR’s Senior Product Line Manager for Managed Switches, Laurent Masia, to talk about the state of AV-over-IP in the Commercial AV market. Laurent is in a unique position to know what’s going on as NETGEAR, as you likely know, makes network switching and routing gear and that’s the backbone of a network. So, he sees (and talks to) every AV-over-IP company there is including those sending video via H.264, H.265, 1G and 10G. Listen to hear what he thinks the upgrade path will be, how we will likely deal with the forthcoming 8K resolution AV gear and what we’re going to see in AV-over-IP at InfoComm. Also, they have six AV-over-IP capable switches right now – they are all here: http://www.netgear.com/landings/proavm4300/
NETGEAR will be in booth N720 with the SDVoE Alliance at InfoComm.
