Over the past year, I’ve enjoyed developing a relationship with Laurent Masia, NETGEAR‘s Global Senior Product Line Manager for Switches. Why? Well, there’s no doubt that the future of our market is via the network. We’re already running a lot AV control, most of our audio and all of VTC’ing over the network. Next comes Video — and even up to 4K and 8K video. 1080p is easy via the network — but higher resolutions provide some interesting dilemmas and decision making — mostly, how much compression can our application allow. The SDVoE 10G standards is the least compression AV-over-IP system out there, so far. More is coming, however. And, 1G is all over the place now. So, we’re at the beginning of a — dare I say it — revolution?
Listen to this podcast with Laurent and hear NETGEAR’s predictions — based on data they’ve collected and sales data of their own, new M4300 Series and the newest of the family, the M4300-96X modular switcher.
