The SDVoE Alliance announced what it calls the “world’s first 8K AV-over-IP transport solution.” Soon-to-be-released SDVoE transmitters and receivers deliver 8K video across a standard network and are entirely backward compatible with 4K SDVoE systems.
HDMI 2.1 defines many 8K formats with varying bit depth, chroma subsampling, frame rate and color space. SDVoE 8K supports all of them without adding any compression or latency. Four independent links on an off-the-shelf 10G Ethernet switch provide 40Gb per 8K endpoint. No special or unusual switches are required.
