1G Ethernet is a dead end for AV distribution.  The compromises required to squeeze 18 gigabits (or more!) of 4K HDR video into a less-than 1G pipe are unacceptable – and no longer required.  10G Ethernet is being adopted at a shockingly fast rate – over 75% of small and medium businesses have deployed 10G already.  Communication industries succeed when they take advantage of the fastest data transfer speeds possible, and pro AV is no different.


  • Learn about the “codec triangle” – the tradeoff between image quality, latency, and bandwidth
  • Compare image quality between codecs like MJPEG at 1G against pixel-pipeline codecs working at 10G
  • Consider the effects of latency on user experience and learn to choose the right codec for your application
