At its root, AV over IP is a method of distributing audio, video, control signals and more over a standard IP Network. Initially the technology was used in a variety of ProAV applications due to its low bandwidth characteristics, compatibility with existing network infrastructures and cost-efficient scalability for large footprint arrays.
However, AV over IP technology has evolved to include low and zero latency transmissions, seamless switching and lossless video quality supporting 4K UHD, high frame rates, 4:4:4 and HDR to become an increasingly viable alternative to conventional AV transmission over distance technologies for both residential and commercial applications.
An AV solution for the IT
Utilizes industry standards to cost efficiently and reliably distribute content
Perfect for decentralized
Dynamic routing without the need for additional 3rd party devices at a back-end patch panel
Cost scales in-line to Inputs/Outputs
True convergence of AV over IP reduces hardware and install costs when
compared to non-IP AV
Connect a display to any network port in a room and the video will be routed to it
Ideal for projects 16×16 and over, AV over IP is capable of the largest of AV distribution needs
Far greater flexibility and perfectly tailored or large-scale installs compared to fixed port matrix solutions
Ability to overcome distance limitations by utilizing optical fiber network links
OUR THREE TECHNOLOGIES
As there is no one AV over IP technology for all applications, you want to make sure you’re using the one best-suited for yours. We’ve channeled our extensive six years of experience in AV over IP into our unique NetworkHD™ line, comprising of three distinct AV over IP technology platforms. With them all sharing the same installation and configuration experience, each series is designed for integrators to provide solutions perfectly tailored to their application.
H.264 and H.265 are well-known video compression standards for high-definition digital video. H.264/H.265 is defined as a block-oriented, compensation-based video compression standard that defines multiple profiles and levels.
JPEG 2000 uses state-of-the-art compression techniques and offers an extremely high level of scalability and accessibility. Content can be coded once at any quality, up to lossless, but accessed and decoded at a potentially very large number of other qualities and resolutions.
SDVoE is an completely lossless, Zero latency means of AV over IP distribution. With unified audio, video and control at a lower price compared to HDBaseT, SDVoE meets the performance and bandwidth requirements of today, and more importantly, into the future.
“They’ve been doing IP-based solutions longer than anyone else and they were very helpful and supportive”
“Using the NetworkHD solution gave us the flexibility we needed. The solid performance made it an easy selection”
