The SDVoE Alliance has announced that UK-based systems integrator IVC Technologies Ltd. has joined the alliance as an adopting member.

First system integrator to join, IVC Technologies will add thorough understanding of AV networks and extensive experience on high-profile installations to the organisation.

“IVC has long championed the concept of AV-over-IP networks so it is with great excitement that we join the SDVoE Alliance to further user benefits and experience,” says Chris King, business development manager at IVC. “Our vision, flexibility, expertise and position within the alliance puts us firmly at the leading edge of IP-based AV solutions and builds on our trusted advisor relationships that we hold with our clients. We will be working to share this vision with our partners and clients to deliver truly unified communications solutions for the future.”

Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance, adds, “We welcome IVC as the first system integration firm to join the alliance and congratulate them on their finalist nomination for the prestigious AV Award in the Broadcast Media Project of the Year category.

“The alliance depends on integrators who understand how to use SDVoE technology to deliver great user experiences. IVC are the first to recognise the value that membership offers in establishing their expertise and brand. I am confident we will see many others capitalise on the alliance’s recipe for success.”

All AV distribution and processing applications that demand zero-latency, uncompromised video are able to 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.

Established in 1993, IVC Technologies specialises in the design, supply and support of high-impact audio visual and IT communications solutions to a wide range of organisations in the hospitality, government, education, healthcare and corporate sectors.
