The SDVoE Alliance recently announced its new SDVoE Academy learning platform, offering free self-paced online courses for A/V professionals to help them develop the skills they need to take advantage of the latest technologies for A/V signal management.
Although the focus is on SDVoE technology, the lessons are broadly applicable to the world of AV-over-IP, supporting A/V network deployments in demanding education, healthcare, enterprise, entertainment, hospitality, retail, house of worship, government, military, industrial and security environments.
Created in cooperation with A/V and IT training experts Clavia Ltd., the SDVoE Academy is designed to become a trusted resource to fill knowledge gaps as the industry transitions to the simplified A/V architectures made possible by the SDVoE standard.
“There is no question that the future of A/V is network-centric and that the pressure on individuals and organizations to adapt to the change has never been greater. To make the most of technological advances, the skills that made us successful in the past must be augmented by the skills we need for today and tomorrow,” says Matt Dodd, CEO of Clavia Group.
“We’re thrilled to capitalize on our track record in cognitive learning and training development and our AV integration experience in this collaboration with the SDVoE Alliance.”
“The SDVoE Alliance has delivered eye-opening training and education sessions around the world at tradeshows and our own World Tour events,” says Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance.
“Now, through the SDVoE Academy, we can bring that same important content to a much wider audience – anytime, anywhere. System designers, integrators and end users can work at their own pace to discover how simple it actually is to enjoy the flexibility and scalability of Ethernet while benefitting from the performance of a matrix switch – 4K video without compromise, without latency, and without image artifacts.”
According to the SDVoE Alliance, A/V 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 A/V extension, switching, processing, and control through advanced chipset technology, common control APIs and interoperability.
