Audinate Joins SDVoE Alliance, Will Show Dante Controller with SDVoE Devices

Audinate joins SDVoE Alliance, will demonstrate Dante Controller managing audio and video signal distribution between SDVoE devices at InfoComm 2018.

Audinate, developers of Dante networking protocol, has joined the SDVoE Alliance. During InfoComm 2018, Audinate will hit the ground running demonstrating Dante Controller managing audio and video signal distribution between SDVoE devices.

SDVoE (Software Defined Video Over Ethernet), which launched prior to ISE 2016 aiming to speed up the transition to AV-over-IP, is an industry consortium driving standardization of AV signal transport over Ethernet.

Audinate will hit the ground running demonstrating Dante Controller managing audio and video signal distribution between SDVoE devices.

Audinate’s Dante distributes a virtually unlimited number of high-quality, uncompressed audio channels across IP networks, according to an Audinate press release.

It “is the de facto audio networking choice for professional audio manufacturers, having been adopted by over 400 companies and integrated into over 1,400 commercially available products.”

Audinate has joined the SDVoE Alliance as a contributing member.

The demonstrations of Dante Controller managing SDVoE signal routing at InfoComm 2018 take place in both the the SDVoE Alliance booth N720 and the Audinate booth C456.

Aidan Williams from Audinate will present “Dante and SDVoE Integration” in the alliance booth each day.

Audinate and SDVoE: Networking Marriage

The Audinate press release writes that SDVoE technology is “ideal for all AV distribution and processing applications that demand zero-latency, uncompromised video … [providing] 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, aimed at creating cost savings, greater system flexibility and scalability over traditional approaches.

“We have long heard from our customers that they want an integrated, interoperable way to control their video over IP alongside their Dante audio,” says Lee Ellison, CEO.

“Our partnership with the SDVoE Alliance and our demonstration of an integrated control platform at InfoComm 2018 is the first step toward making this interoperable IP audio and video experience a reality.”

Audinate contends that there are numerous markets and applications that can benefit from an integrated multi-channel audio and video over IP solution, including:

  • Corporate conference rooms
  • Lecture halls in higher education
  • Digital signage in retail
  • Sports books in casinos
  • Houses of worship

“Dante audio over IP solution won the race to be the standard technology for moving audio across an IT network without compromise,” adds Justin Kennington, president, SDVoE Alliance.

“The SDVoE Alliance is proud to be the only industry organization promoting the same, no-compromise performance in the realm of video over IP. The synergies that will be created by melding the SDVoE platform and the ubiquity of Dante are huge. The entire AV industry will benefit from this partnership.”
