The Internet of Things connects devices together to improve the quality of life, society and industry. Connected healthcare in fact remains the sleeping giant of IOT applications.

In this course, Colin Dobbyne from Big Blue Solutions explains why SDVoE technology is the perfect solution for bringing the Internet of Things into the operating room.

It’s a big bold statement, and it suggests that in fact one of the key video transport systems used across the industry today  is about to become no more!

In this course we’re going to hear from Gary Kayye, founder of the rAVE agency and  tech futurist, branding and market analyst of over 25 years.

If anyone knows anything about the Pro AV market, it’s this guy. Enjoy

Interoperability is very much a part of our everyday lives, in fact we probably take it for granted. Imagine if you could only dial another iPhone from your iPhone, and if you needed to call your buddy who has an Samsung phone, you’d need to go and buy a Samsung to guarantee you could hear him properly. Here’s the thing, if we just relied on one feature like audio to work, then interoperability is pretty straight forward, but now we rely on lots of different signals to co-exist in order to get a far more immersive experience, and that’s where interoperability becomes more complex.

Interoperability is very much a key part of the SDVoE ecosystem, the user has to have absolute faith in products from different vendors working together. This course will help you understand how SDVoE ensures interoperability by using tried and trusted standards across the full OSI stack.


In this course we will explore the key differences between an AV over IP based system and a matrix switch system. 


Focussing on the concepts of circuit switching and packet switching, this short course will create a foundation for any sales person who is often asked to explain how an SDVoE based system differs from that of an HDBaseT system. You will quickly discover how Ethernet is driving the way for future high resolution video distribution in ways the good old matrix switch is simply unable to. 

By the end of this session you will:

- Confidently be able to explain to your customers the benefits of a packet switched based system over a circuit switching system

- Describe how a 10Gb solution can pull together all the advantages of both a matrix switched system and one using AV over IP

- Explain how an SDVoE based topology guarantees the 'future readiness' of a video distribution system
