The SDVoE Alliance will bring industry experts to its InfoComm 2018 booth [N720] to present 20-minute, in-booth SDVoE training sessions “on a variety of topics essential for system integrators, designers, consultants, installers and manufacturers who want to understand the new AV-over-IP paradigm — Software Defined Video over Ethernet,” according to the press release.
“We’re calling this series of education sessions ‘SDVoE 20/20’,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance.
“Attendees can choose from more than 20 sessions, invest 20 minutes to learn about various aspects of AV-over-IP in easily digestible chunks, and someone at each session will leave with $20. Those are the best odds in Vegas!”
Presentations will start on the hour and half-hour throughout all three days of InfoComm 2018, June 6-8. A full schedule of all sessions can be obtained in the alliance’s booth.

SDVoE Alliance leadership recently announced the creation of an online training and certification program that they say “recognizes experts in the creation of SDVoE systems that take advantage of AV-over-IP scalability, yet offer matrix-switch-like performance,” according to an alliance press release.
Created in cooperation with AV consulting firms HyperSphere Limited and Hewshott International, as well as AV/IT training firm Clavia Ltd., the goal of the program is to certify designers qualified to offer guidance in leveraging the SDVoE standard for AV network deployments in corporate, education, health care, enterprise, entertainment, hospitality, retail, houses of worship, government, military and security.
“The first year of the alliance was all about explaining what it is and getting the brand out,” says SDVoE Alliance president Justin Kennington. “Now, we want to start really being useful.”
