MONTREAL — Feb. 5, 2020 — The SDVoE Alliance® today announced the availability of an SDVoE module for Crestron® control systems. This module makes it easy for system designers and integrators to deploy SDVoE systems of any size while providing a familiar user experience with Crestron control systems and interfaces.
The SDVoE module works with any 3-series Crestron control processor to enable video matrix switching and independent audio routing, as well as advanced SDVoE features like video wall and multiview. Harnessing the power of the SDVoE API, this single driver works with any SDVoE manufacturer’s products. The SDVoE module is available for free download from the SDVoE Academy by SDVoE Alliance members and certified SDVoE Design Partners.
“Most SDVoE systems are deployed without a Crestron control interface and many of our members have their own great control platforms, but this new functionality for the SDVoE ecosystem makes it much simpler to mix Crestron’s popular control platform with the best video distribution platform,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “Systems designers and integrators can easily offer end users a familiar experience and give them peace of mind that they can benefit from all the quality, flexibility, scalability and interoperability SDVoE technology has to offer, without the need for re-training.”
Visitors to ISE (RAI Amsterdam Feb. 11-14) can see the SDVoE module for Crestron control systems in action on the SDVoE Alliance stand 1-F40.
All AV distribution and processing applications that demand zero-latency, uncompromised video can benefit from SDVoE technology, which 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. 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.
About the SDVoE Alliance
SDVoE is an initialism for “Software Defined Video over Ethernet”. The SDVoE Alliance is a nonprofit consortium of technology providers collaborating to standardize the adoption of Ethernet to transport AV signals in professional AV environments, and to create an ecosystem around SDVoE technology allowing software to define AV applications. The alliance participates in tradeshows and conferences, publishes white papers and case studies and promotes SDVoE technology, and solutions based on the technology, to system integrators, designers and consultants. Training and installer certification are also part of the mandate. The SDVoE Alliance founding members are Aquantia, Christie Digital, NETGEAR, Semtech, Sony and ZeeVee. All interested parties are invited to join the alliance and work toward its goals. For more information, visit sdvoe.org or connect with us on Twitter @SDVoE and the SDVoE blog.
