Standards-based Solution Delivers Any AV Source Using IP Technology Stack
What is AV-over-IP?
AV-over-IP is the transmission of audio-visual information via data packets over an Internet Protocol. In the AV industry it refers to using the network rather than using traditional audio-visual signal transmission.
“We are very happy with the product, easy to use and manage and very price-competitive"
Stephen Lee, Vice President of Tuck Technologies
Conventional vs. Standards based
Not all AV-over-IP solutions are the same.
Traditional AV solutions used circuit-switched networks and involved proprietary cables and connectors. It was cumbersome, proprietary and offered limited scalability.
AV-over-IP added specialized encoders and decoders so that AV signals could be sent over an IP network.
The problem is there’s still a lot of cumbersome proprietary hardware involved, and while the solution may be using standard IP for transmission, it’s not standards based.
Userful & Standards Based AV-over-IP
Userful in contrast eliminates the encoders and decoders and fully embraces existing IP standards. It is not just AV-over-IP, it is standards based AV-over-IP and relies on a Standards based tech-stack.
Standards based AV-over-IP does not require: Encoders Decoders A/V Switch
