The SDVoE Alliance announced at InfoComm that VuWall Technology joined the alliance as an adopting member and will work toward the organization’s goals of standardizing the adoption of Ethernet to transport AV signals in professional AV environments, and creating an ecosystem around SDVoE technology that allows software to define AV applications.
“Distributing AV content through an IT network brings a lot of flexibility, but a simple and intuitive management platform is needed,” said Paul Vander Plaetse, president of VuWall. “Our TRx software is designed for AV integrators and operators alike, who need to deploy and manage small to large-scale SDVoE-based AV networks. It offers two distinct modes, device configuration and operation.”
“The most important feature of the SDVoE Alliance is its diversity, which allows system designers and end users to benefit from each member’s strength when choosing components for their particular AV-over-IP implementation,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “The participation of VuWall, a company focused on great enterprise management software, completely validates the platform ecosystem concept upon which the SDVoE Alliance is built.”
DVoE 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. SDVoE network architectures are based on off-the-shelf Ethernet switches thus 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.
