“NETGEAR is a renowned manufacturer of networking equipment for all major markets, servicing projects ranging from residential all the way up to enterprise-scale applications," said Andreas Hildebrand, RAVENNA evangelist at ALC NetworX. "With RAVENNA now stretching its legs into the Pro AV market, NETGEAR with its Pro AV range of products and experience in the commercial market is a valuable partner for the RAVENNA partner community.”

NETGEAR has been developing commercial network equipment for over 25 years. With the AV Line series of network switches, NETGEAR has reduced common installation frictions with pre-set profiles for AV-over-IP protocols, from one-room setups to very large AV networks with thousands of endpoints.
