In many applications, a single Ethernet switch is sufficient to displace a single matrix switch. It makes a very compelling proposal when a 16x16 matrix switch, consuming 440 watts and seven rack units of space can be replaced by a 48-port Ethernet switch in a single rack unit, consuming only 161 watts.

Sometimes though, a single switch isn’t enough whether you’re using matrix switching or AV over IP. As systems grow larger and larger, the scalability, space saving, and cost advantages of SDVoE over the traditional matrix switch grow quickly.

Objectives:

  • Follow a specific example of how to create a 144-port SDVoE AV-over-IP system using the NETGEAR M4300-96X switch as a base.
  • Discover the rack-space saving and cost advantages of SDVoE
