Over the past decade, AV systems for applications like video displays, video conferencing and digital signage have shifted from connecting via traditional RCA coaxial, component cables and baluns to low-voltage network cabling such as balanced twisted-pair copper and optical fiber cables. While many of these networked AV systems still utilize proprietary equipment and protocols, newer AV-over-IP systems like SDVoE are doing more than just leveraging existing network cabling—they’re also now leveraging common Ethernet/IP switches and are easier to design and deploy than ever before.While the growth of advanced AV-over-IP applications and an ever-increasing amount of HD and Ultra HD video requires the right low-voltage cabling infrastructure with the performance to deliver clear, high-quality video and audio signals, the world of Ethernet/IP and structured cabling can be scary for those not familiar with IP-based network infrastructures. Likewise, taking on AV projects may appear scary or challenging for professionals who are deeply experienced in Ethernet/IP-based technologies. Selecting the right type of cabling and connectivity, identifying the key features to consider and understanding related structured cabling standards, installation best practices and the need for proper testing and reporting can go a long way in helping AV integrators and network professionals alike eliminate their fears and ensure a successful, certified standards-compliant AV-over-IP deployment.
As President of the SDVoE Alliance, Justin’s passion is leading the pro AV industry away from reliance on archaic matrix switches and into the world of software-defined video over Ethernet, where anything is possible. Justin’s former experience included cutting-edge product execution at AptoVision, Crestron and Google. He is widely recognized as an influential technologist in professional AV, who received InfoComm’s Young AV Professional of the Year Award in 2014.
