The SDVoE Alliance today announced that Panduit has joined the alliance as a contributing member and will work towards the organisation’s goals of standardising the adoption of Ethernet to transport AV signals in professional AV environments.
“Panduit is excited to be the first cabling and connectivity manufacturer to join the SDVoE Alliance as a contributing member. The Alliance and Panduit have similar goals of promoting the expansion and standardisation of an AV-over-IP solution. This gives Panduit an opportunity to introduce our high-quality, industry-leading network products and solutions to the pro AV market,” said Panduit vice president of enterprise business Dennis Renaud.
SDVoE technology provides an end-to-end hardware and software platform for AV extension, switching, processing and control through advanced chipset technology, common control APIs and interoperability. All AV distribution and processing applications that demand zero-latency, uncompromised video can benefit from this.
SDVoE network architectures are based on off-the-shelf Ethernet switches, offering substantial cost savings and greater system flexibility and scalability over traditional approaches, such as point-to-point extension and circuit-based AV matrix switching.
“SDVoE is the only off-the-shelf technology for pro AV that offers a ‘full stack solution’ addressing the entire 7-layer OSI stack with solutions at every layer. Panduit provides vital infrastructure that supports the Ethernet physical layer, the basis upon which all the other layers are built. We welcome their valuable contribution and participation in the alliance and look forward to working with them as we provide the solid, stable, reliable and cost-effective AV-over-IP platform the pro AV market seeks,” said SDVoE Alliance president Justin Kennington.
The SDVoE Alliance will feature member products and demonstrations at booth 3729 at InfoComm 2017 held in Orlando on 14-16 June. As part of the demonstration, Panduit will showcase its Category 6A copper cabling system with MaTriX Technology, which offers unsurpassed alien crosstalk suppression and thermal properties, while delivering 10GBASE-T performance.
