Belden’s connectivity solutions take a universal approach to AV and IT signal transmission needs and its portfolio of audio, video and communication products spans the needs of any cabling solution.
This helps organisations of all kinds integrate the delivery of high-definition, uncompressed signals, which is essential at time when the industry is adapting to Internet of Things (IoT) and convergence – bringing multiple disparate systems together onto one network for better communication, mobility, efficiency and safety.
“We’re pleased to become an active member of the SDVoE Alliance. Years of research and development, spanning multiple levels of the OSI model, put us in a position to support the adoption of AV-over-IP platforms,” says Belden vice president of USA sales Dave Geon.
“Belden’s deep understanding of AV technology extends beyond cable and connectivity to include the active component brands in our portfolio – including Grass Valley, Thinklogical and Tripwire – which gives us unique insight into AV and IT platforms and how they can work together.”
AV over IP solutions meet the demand for high-definition, real-time engaging content and offer full high-definition capabilities with near-zero latency. Multi-point installations can be easily controlled and managed through any device, including laptops and smart phones.
“The mission of the SDVoE Alliance is to provide the solid, stable, reliable and cost-effective AV-over-IP platform the pro AV market needs to fully realise the benefits of standardised Ethernet infrastructure,” says SDVoE Alliance president Justin Kennington.
In the AV industry, the demand for higher-performance communications has become more prevalent than ever before, which means professional and quality cabling systems and components that span a vast spectrum of applications are necessary.
Belden’s cabling and connectivity expertise and performance in the broadcast industry means it is well positioned as the industry adjusts to IP convergence throughout the broadcast and professional AV markets.
“We look forward to working with Belden to capitalise on their vast experience in connectivity solutions and lessons learned during the broadcast industry transition from SDI to IP-based systems,” says Justin.
