At InfoComm MEA 2017 in Dubai, the SDVoE™ Alliance will present a series of AVIXA training sessions focusing on Ethernet as the transport for AV signals in professional AV environments and the ecosystem around the SDVoE platform which allows software to define AV applications.

The sessions will be presented by Frank Sheehan, chief executive officer of HyperSphere Limited and lead consultant. As a technology visionary and systems architect, Sheehan is experienced in working internationally in many market verticals such as automotive, FMCG industries, security and research facilities. He has spent more than ten years consulting on multiple projects in the oil & gas market for the likes of Saudi Aramco, Kuwait Oil and Qatar Petroleum ensuring best practice with AV-IT technology strategies.

“The SDVoE Alliance World Tour has delivered popular education and training sessions on SDVoE technology throughout Europe, the US, Australia and Latin America,’ said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “We are excited to introduce this new AV-over-IP platform in the Middle East and to demonstrate how integrators and end users can take advantage of the flexibility and scalability of Ethernet to deliver 4K video without compromise – without latency and image artefacts.’

All AV distribution and processing applications that demand zero-latency, uncompromised video can benefit from SDVoE technology, which provides an end-to-end hardware and software platform for AV extension, switching, processing and control through advanced chipset technology, common control APIs and interoperability. SDVoE network architectures are based on off-the-shelf Ethernet switches thus offering substantial cost savings and greater system flexibility and scalability over traditional approaches such as point-to-point extension and circuit-based AV matrix switching.

Attendees to the SDVoE Alliance training sessions will learn what they need to know to leverage the SDVoE standard for high-performance AV network deployments in education, healthcare, enterprise, entertainment, hospitality, retail, houses of worship, government, military, industry and security.
