SDVoE Alliance announces 8K AV-over-IP transport solution. Soon to be released SDVoE transmitters and receivers deliver 8K video over a standard 10G network. They are fully backward compatible with 4K SDVoE systems. SDVoE will demonstrate working prototypes of the new 8K AV over IP signal distribution solution at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2022 from May 10-13, 2022, at FIRA Barcelona, Gran Vía.
SDVoE plays a vital role in integrating 8K into professional audio and video systems by providing what it calls the “world’s first 8K AV over IP solution”. HDMI 2.1 defines many 8K formats with variable bit depth, chroma subsampling, frame rate, and color space. SDVoE 8K supports traditional formats without adding compression or latency. Four independent links on an off-the-shelf 10G Ethernet switch provide 40 GB per 8K endpoint; no special or unusual switches are required.
Chris Chinnock, Owner of Insight Media, and Stephane Tremblay, AptoVision’s Chief Technology Officer for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Product Group, discuss the technical aspects of SDVoE’s 8K AV over IP transport solution. Learn more: https://sdvoe.org/technology/8k-for-pro-av/.
“SDVoE is truly the first AV over IP solution to support 8K resolutions – and the fact that it is compatible with existing SDVoE systems is important,” said Justin Kennington, President of SDVoE Alliance. “An existing 4K 10G SDVoE transmitter can send signals to a new 8K 4x10G SDVoE receiver. The reverse is true, assuming 4K content is sent from the 8K transmitter. What goes in comes out without compromise, without compression or added latency.
All AV distribution and processing applications that demand zero latency and uncompromising video can benefit from SDVoE technology, which provides an end-to-end hardware and software platform for extending, switching, processing and AV control via advanced chipset technology, common control APIs, and interoperability. SDVoE network architectures are based on off-the-shelf Ethernet switches, providing substantial cost savings and greater system flexibility and scalability compared to traditional approaches, such as point-to-point extension and AV matrix switching circuit-based.
