The SDVoE Alliance, a nonprofit consortium of technology providers collaborating to standardize the adoption of Ethernet to transport AV signals in professional AV environments, has announced that Platinum Tools has joined the SDVoE Alliance as an adopting member.
Since 1997, Platinum Tools has developed, manufactured and sourced tools to prepare, install, terminate and test wire and cable. The SDVoE Alliances boasts the tool company simplifies connections with a broad offering of connectors, low-voltage tools, testers, wiring and cable management. The industry group also points out the manufacturer provides a wide range of solutions, including connectors, crimpers, testers, structured wiring, cable management, fiber optic and many other products to enhance connections.
“We are pleased to welcome Platinum Tools to our growing network of members,” says Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance.
“Platinum Tools has built a reputation for developing and delivering high-quality solutions that simplify the preparation, installation and hand termination of wire and cable. We look forward to collaborating with Platinum Tools as they continue to simplify the installation of 10 gigabit Ethernet infrastructure.”
In recent years, industry demands for remote data collection and real-time content management have dramatically increased AV-over-IP applications. AV-over-IP technology supports high-quality audio/video transmission over long distances without latency. 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.
“We’re excited to be part of the SDVoE community,” adds Cameron Smith, vice president of NSI’s Platinum Tools brand.
“Platinum Tools has innovated twisted pair connections for over 20 years and forward-thinking partnerships are part of our DNA. Every Platinum product – whether connector, tool or tester – needs to address today and tomorrow’s technology needs.”
