SDVoE Alliance, the Montréal, Canada-based nonprofit consortium of technology providers collaborating to standardize the adoption of Ethernet to transport AV signals in professional AV environments, announced that Derby, U.K.-headquartered Datapath has joined the SDVoE Alliance as a adopting member.
Per a statement, Datapath offers the ultimate videowall and control room solutions from its wide range of processors, videowall controllers and graphics and capture cards. Datapath puts the operator at the heart of the control room with its latest, fully integrated Aetria platform which allows design, management and control of complex systems. Meeting a wide set of diverse requirements, Datapath’s solutions offer both IP and near-zero latency KVM solutions meaning sources can be routed to any screen in any location and controlled from anywhere.
Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance notes, “Datapath have realized that the mission of putting the operator at the center is easy to enable with the power of SDVoE. By offering videowalls, multiview and KVM all under software control, SDVoE is a natural fit for Datapath’s goals, and I’m excited to see the new products that will result from this partnership.”
Danny Wan, marketing communications manager at Datapath adds, “The SDVoE Alliance shares our passion for the highest possible standard in networked video and this is a tailor-made alignment. As a member, we can draw on each other’s considerable experience to deliver market-leading products that bring the lowest latency and the highest quality networked video to our end users.”
In recent years, industry demands for remote data collection and real-time content management have dramatically increased AV-over-IP applications, SDVoE says. AV-over-IP technology supports high-quality audio/video transmission over long distances without latency, making it ideal for content streaming applications.
Thus, AV distribution and processing applications that demand zero-latency and uncompromised video can benefit from SDVoE technology. The 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.
Additionally, 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.
