The founder of the SDVoE Alliance, Justin Kennington, has resigned from his role as president, effective immediately. He plans to pursue new opportunities, personally and professionally. Stephane Tremblay is now the president of the Alliance.

The SDVoE Alliance is, of course, the nonprofit consortium of technology providers collaborating to standardize the adoption of Ethernet to transport AV signals in professional AV environments.

In 2016, Justin Kennington conceived and founded the SDVoE Alliance to drive a standards-based approach to audiovisual technology. Under Kennington’s leadership, the SDVoE Alliance has grown from a handful of visionary Founding Members, including Christie, NETGEAR, Semtech and ZeeVee, to a global organization comprising more than 60 industry-leading companies representing the vast diversity of the professional audiovisual industry. The SDVoE Alliance has developed a robust technology, established strong brand awareness and created a vibrant community of SDVoE adopters.

“It is with mixed emotions that I have decided to step down to pursue new opportunities, personally and professionally,” says Kennington. “I am incredibly proud of the milestones, accomplishments and growth of the SDVoE Alliance. I sincerely thank the SDVoE Alliance Board of Directors, the membership, and the staff for their support and dedication during my time as President.”

He continues, “I’m thrilled to welcome Stephane Tremblay, an industry trailblazer and technology visionary, as the President of the SDVoE Alliance. Stephane is a highly respected industry veteran with a deep understanding of and passion for SDVoE technology. Actually, he is personally responsible for my joining the team that created SDVoE in the first place! I am confident he will lead the SDVoE Alliance to even greater heights.”

Tremblay adds, “I’m honored to be appointed by the SDVoE Alliance Board of Directors as the President of the SDVoE Alliance. Over the last seven years, Justin and the SDVoE Alliance have collaborated to solve industry challenges, promote the SDVoE standard and educate the market about the benefits of AV-over-IP. I am energized to build upon the foundation that Justin has established and I look forward to the continued growth and success of the SDVoE Alliance.”

Prior to 2016, Tremblay developed the technology that serves as the foundation for the SDVoE Alliance. With three decades of experience in the field of semiconductors and electronics, Tremblay designed the SDVoE Alliance’s IP-based system architecture to create a more flexible, reliable and cost-effective solution compared to point-to-point connectivity and circuit switches. As a result, SDVoE technology is the only off-the-shelf solution that provides a complete, interoperable solution.
