AV over IP

  1. 1. over
  2. 2. AV-over-IP Defined AV-over-IP is the transport of AV signals over a standard Ethernet network, including…     HD Video (e.g. HDMI, DVI) Audio Control Signals (e.g. IR) Peripheral Signals (e.g. USB)
  3. 3. Why AV-over-IP? Scalability! Eliminate port limits Distribute content from a single source to hundreds of displays
  4. 4. Why AV-over-IP? Flexibility! Deploy (and power) AV infrastructure over Ethernet
  5. 5. Why AV-over-IP? Distance! No distance limitations Send video as far as your network reaches
  6. 6. Why AV-over-IP? Image Quality! Lossless video and ultra-low latency
  7. 7. Why AV-over-IP? Cost Savings! Use existing networking equipment No need to install separate cabling Avoid using expensive electrical contractors
  8. 8. AV-over-IP Applications • • • • • • Corporate/Educational Campuses Hospitality Digital Signage Conference Rooms Smart Home AV distribution Professional AV Broadcast Transmit HD-video wherever Ethernet network technology is available!
  9. 9. AV-over-IP vs. HDBaseT AV-over-IP HDBaseT Cabling CAT5e, 6, 6a CAT6 (shielded) Network Standard Ethernet Dedicated cable runs Yes No Lossless compression Uncompressed Bandwidth requirement <150 Mbps 6 Gbps Distance Unlimited* 330 ft. Number of displays Unlimited Depending on number of ports on transmitter $3300 $5000 Multi-cast Video signal Cost for 1:8 application *330 ft. per segment, add switches or use fiber to extend AV-over-IP solutions provide a compelling alternative to overlay technologies like HDBaseT
  10. 10. AV-over-IP networking What is multicasting? • One-to-many communication over network infrastructure • IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) • Using only a single stream saves bandwidth Choosing networking equipment • Pick good quality switches supporting Gigabit and IGMP snooping. • For optional remote powering add PoE.
