The SDVoE Alliance, a nonprofit consortium of technology providers collaborating to standardize the adoption of Ethernet to transport AV signals in professional AV environments, announces the first 8K AV-over-IP transport solution. The soon-to-be-released SDVoE transmitters and receivers deliver 8K video across a standard 10G network. They are entirely backward compatible with 4K SDVoE systems. SDVoE will present a live demo of the new 8K AV-over-IP signal distribution solution at InfoComm 2022 from June 8–10, 2022, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

SDVoE plays a vital role in bringing 8K to professional audio and video systems integration by providing the world’s first 8K AV-over-IP solution. HDMI 2.1 defines many 8K formats with varying bit depth, chroma subsampling, frame rate and color space. SDVoE 8K supports all of these formats without adding any compression or latency. Four independent links on an off-the-shelf 10G Ethernet switch provide 40Gb per 8K endpoint; no special or unusual switches are required.
Chris Chinnock, owner of Insight Media, and Stéphane Tremblay, chief technology officer of AptoVision for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Products Group, discuss the technical aspects of SDVoE’s 8K AV-over-IP transport solution.
“SDVoE is truly the first AV-over-IP solution to support 8K resolutions — and the fact that it’s compatible with existing SDVoE systems is important,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “An existing 4K 10G SDVoE transmitter can send signals to a new 8K 4x10G SDVoE receiver. The opposite is true, assuming 4K content is sent from the 8K transmitter. What comes in goes out without compromise, no added compression or latency.”
