The SDVoE Alliance recently announced its SDVoE Partner Consultant Program for “recognized leaders in the field of AV over IP and experts in the design and architecture of SDVoE systems.”
The goal of the program is “to provide guidance to integrators, installers and end users in leveraging the SDVoE standard for high performance AV network deployments in education, healthcare, enterprise, entertainment, hospitality, retail, houses of worship, government, military, industry and security,” according to the announcement.
HyperSphere Limited is the lead consultant in the alliance program, with CEO Frank Sheehan and director of technology Lee Payne serving as lead participants.
Combined, they have more than 30 years of experience within the field of AV-over-IP and “will help define the role of consultants in the SDVoE ecosystem,” according to the SDVoE Alliance press release.
SDVoE partner consultants “will generate materials such as case studies, design specifications and best practices guidelines,” according to the announcement.
“The SDVoE Partner Consultant Program is the next step in ensuring integrators and end users can take full advantage of the flexibility and scalability of Ethernet to deliver 4K video without compromise – and for the first time, to deliver AV and data on a converged infrastructure,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance.
“Working with registered SDVoE partner consultants will give them the confidence to take advantage of all that SDVoE technology and AV-over-IP have to offer over traditional approaches such as point-to-point extension and circuit-based AV matrix switching.”
Futuresource recently said AV over IP technology is “becoming increasingly mainstream but still in the early adopter’s stage of the Innovation Adoption Lifecycle with less than 5 percent penetration in the market for pro AV ports requiring extension (as of 2016).”
The first meeting of the SDVoE Partner Consultant Program will be held at ISE 2018 in Amsterdam on Feb. 7 at 1 p.m. in room G109.
All interested parties are invited to attend the meeting to learn how they can join the program and benefit from participation.
