MONTREAL — Nov. 26, 2019 — SDVoE Alliance® members voted to honor special achievement by member companies in two broad categories – project excellence and product innovation – at the organization’s annual general meeting,

The winner of the project excellence award is ZeeVee’s installation of ZyPer4K encoders and decoders at Quadram Institute, one of Europe’s largest endoscopic screening suites. This project exemplifies how SDVoE™ technology is helping to advance the practice of medicine and improve delivery of healthcare. The system supports the facility’s diagnostic, teaching and research mandates and is designed to handle more than 40,000 procedures each year.

The industry’s first PCIe video capture card to feature native SDVoE connectivity, YUAN’s SC710N1-L, receives top honors for product innovation. It offers real-time capture of lossless 4K video and does not require a fan, making it a fitting choice for studios where quiet operation is a necessity.

“SDVoE-based products lead the industry in performance and are setting new benchmarks for marquee installations worldwide,” said Justin Kennington, president of the SDVoE Alliance. “We are proud to recognize ZeeVee’s and Yuan’s achievements as representative of our growing ecosystem that now includes 45 member companies with over 200 interoperable products.”

Project Excellence finalists included the Christie Terra installation at Zurich Opera House and Aurora Multimedia’s installation at the Harrisburg University eSports facility.

Finalists for the product innovation award included Aurora Multimedia’s IPX-TC3-WP, the industry’s first SDVoE transceiver wall plate and Zigen’s IP-Logic AV distribution system.

All AV distribution and processing applications that demand zero-latency, uncompromised video can benefit from SDVoE technology, which provides an end-to-end hardware and software platform for AV extension, switching, processing and control through advanced chipset technology, common control APIs and interoperability. SDVoE network architectures are based on off-the-shelf Ethernet switches thus offering substantial cost savings and greater system flexibility and scalability over traditional approaches such as point-to-point extension and circuit-based AV matrix switching.

About the SDVoE Alliance

SDVoE is an initialism for “Software Defined Video over Ethernet”. The SDVoE Alliance is a nonprofit consortium of technology providers collaborating to standardize the adoption of Ethernet to transport AV signals in professional AV environments, and to create an ecosystem around SDVoE technology allowing software to define AV applications. The alliance participates in tradeshows and conferences, publishes white papers and case studies and promotes SDVoE technology, and solutions based on the technology, to system integrators, designers and consultants. Training and installer certification are also part of the mandate. The SDVoE Alliance founding members are Aquantia, Christie Digital, NETGEAR, Semtech, Sony and ZeeVee. All interested parties are invited to join the alliance and work toward its goals. For more information, visit or connect with us on Twitter @SDVoE and the SDVoE blog.
