CRESTRON & EVERTZAV: AV OVER IP

Presented by: Jonathan Garcia of Crestron & Kelly Henderson of EvertzAV

End users want AV (audio visual) and IT (information technology) services that are as predictable and work as easily as telephones and printers–industry wide. They also want the technology to work the same way. Systems should be easily used, supported and maintained– regardless of location. Solutions must be flexible, manageable, scalable, robust, easily deployed–attributes that reduce the total cost of ownership.

Over the past two decades, virtually every piece of office technology that required separate cabling has moved onto the network. A convergence that has drastically simplified deployment and reduced costs. Audio and video distribution are the last remaining enterprise systems.

AV-over-IP (Internet Protocol) describes the distribution of audio, video and control signals over the LAN (local area network) using IP switching and configuration protocols. With the arrival and rapid advancement of AV-overIP technology traditional AV infrastructures have been replaced with IP-based infrastructures.
