AV-over-IP covered by CEDIA in new whitepaper

CEDIA focuses on audio-video over Internet Protocol (AV-over-IP) systems in newly released whitepaper.

Growing in demand by CEDIA professionals, AV-over-IP technology provides an alternative to traditional methods of distributing high-quality multimedia such as matrix switching hardware. 

Covering all aspects of AV-over-IP, from practical to technical, CEDIA has worked with the expertise of Mike Maniscalco of Texas-based Better Living Technologies and Pytheas, Nathan Holmes of Californian-based Access Networks, and CEDIA’s technical research consultant, David Meyer.

The new whitepaper, ‘AV-over-IP Systems’, provides background on the technology, a comprehensive overview of its uses, and the many considerations at play, including infrastructure, power, and compression. It also details factors like quality, bandwidth, and latency.

Walte Zerbe, CEDIA’s senior director of Technology and Standards said: “Integrators and their customers are constantly seeking more efficient, cost-effective ways of delivering today’s data-heavy media options and AV-over-IP is certainly a valuable tool worth exploring.

“Our members rely on CEDIA to be on top of the topics that are new and next, and this whitepaper fits the bill by breaking down the ‘geekiest’ points of AV-over-IP.”

Education and boosting industry professionalism are two of CEDIA’s uppermost areas of strategic focus, through establishing standards, recommended practices, guidelines, and best practices. 

‘AV-over-IP Systems’ is available with the rest of CEDIA’s whitepaper portfolio free to CEDIA members and $99 to non-members.
