Networked AV

WHY NETWORKED AV?

Utilizing existing network infrastructure to distribute audio and video means there is no need for dedicated cable or switches, no need to purchase more endpoints than needed, and no need to manage and maintain a dedicated infrastructure for AV. Still, we understand that deploying constantly streaming multicast data over an existing IP network is no small feat. Our decade of experience and staff of expert network engineers are dedicated to designing network-centric products that comply with enterprise protocols, including security. With a wide range of products to choose from, including encoders, decoders, audio transceivers, network video recorders, and IP windowing/wall processors, we offer a complete solution suited to provide a robust enterprise solution. It’s as simple as knowing how many sources you want to distribute over the network and where you want to distribute them.

STANDARD NETWORK TECHNOLOGY

Because our AV over IP encoder/decoder products use standard network cabling and switches to distribute source content to your endpoint components, distributing AV over the network is as simple as selecting the right product platform that perfectly balances feature requirements, budget constraints, and infrastructure considerations; then starting as small as 1x1 and growing endpoints as requirements expand.

OPTIMAL DELIVERY

AMX SVSI IP-based products are unique in that they include a variety of ways to ensure optimal video and audio is delivered over any network segment or link – whether a managed local-area network, fiber uplink, or low bit-rate internet connection. These networked AV products can be deployed on an existing enterprise network or private network to offload traffic. The SVSI product family offers multiple options to control video and audio routing and end-point device control via IR, serial, switch closure, or TCP/IP.

Workbook to Planning for Video Streaming

Download the essential planning guide for deploying streaming video over the network

Video streaming is one of the most requested, and least understood, technologies within the workplace and campus. This workbook goes beyond the cameras, recorders, displays and devices, and dives into the details at the back end of the hardware, software and the network, providing the information you need to know for a successful deployment.

You will learn:

  • The impact of resolution, compression, and more on network bandwidth
  • How to select appropriate network transit technologies, such as TCP vs. UDP and unicast vs. multicast

Sneak Peek

"The requirements for streaming video quality are based on audience requirements. The quality acceptable for a cute cat video may not be acceptable for something that requires close examination like an advanced math class. It's also important to consider the length of time they are viewing. Poor quality audio and video is taxing to watch. Longer content generally requires higher quality. If the content is on demand and the users want to consume part of the content and continue later, perhaps on another device, it needs to be considered before the system is chosen."
