In probably the biggest announcement of 2022, Yamaha is joining the SDVoE Alliance, a consortium of technology providers collaborating to standardize the adoption of AV-over-IP via 10G in professional AV environments.
Yamaha is a player in the UCC segment of the market of AV and in corporate, retail and hospitality industries.
“We are pleased to welcome Japan-based Yamaha Corporation to the SDVoE Alliance,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “The SDVoE Alliance has invested significantly in growing our presence and strengthening relationships in Japan. We introduced a Japan Marketing Committee and a Japanese-language website to further support our partners. The addition of Yamaha Corporation is another example of our continued growth in Japan.”
“At Yamaha we have an open architecture concept, which allows customers in the professional AV/IT industry to choose from a wide range of solutions that are best suited to their environment,” said Nobuo Ikematsu, senior general manager of the Yamaha Corporation’s Information and Communication Division. Ikematsu added, “Our membership of the SDVoE Alliance is a key part of this concept.
By joining this not-for-profit consortium, Yamaha is demonstrating its commitment to the industry’s further development of reliable, cost-effective solutions for delivering high quality audio and video. We will continue to develop new solutions in response to industry demand, introducing more integrated, intuitive systems and total solutions which include both pro audio and networked audio products.”
Earlier this year, the SDVoE Alliance launched a Japanese version of its website. The site brings resources, specifications, and membership benefits that have been fully translated to support the SDVoE Alliance’s growing presence in the Japanese market.
