SDVoE Alliance Offers Full-Day of Education and Training Opportunities at ISE 2019

At Integrated Systems Europe 2019 (Amsterdam, Feb. 5-8) the SDVoE Alliance will present a free program of in-depth education sessions for system integrators, designers, consultants, installers and manufacturers who want to become educated on the SDVoE signal management platform, which offers matrix switch performance, advanced AV processing and AV-over-IP capability, plus interoperability supported by over 40 companies.

“This year our education program at ISE is focusing on how SDVoE is transforming the matrix, how it is fundamentally changing the way we think about AV system design,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “Our goal is to allow participants to leave the sessions with a thorough understanding of the many advantages of the SDVoE platform to deliver the quality and performance benefits of traditional matrix switches while at the same time taking advantage of the flexibility, scalability, and simplified system architecture afforded by Ethernet-based designs.”

Attendees to the SDVoE Alliance training sessions will learn what they need to know to leverage the SDVoE standard for high performance AV network deployments in education, healthcare, enterprise, entertainment, hospitality, retail, houses of worship, government, military, industry and security.
