The SDVoE Alliance will showcase working prototypes of the world’s first 8K AV over IP terminals at ISE May 10-13 at Fira de Barcelona, Gran Vía.
Soon to be released SDVoE transmitters and receivers stream 8K video over a standard 10G network and are fully backwards compatible with 4K SDVoE systems.
While HDMI 2.1 defines many 8K formats with varying bit depth, chroma subsampling, frame rate, and color space, SDVoE 8K supports traditional formats without adding compression or latency. Four independent links on an off-the-shelf 10G Ethernet switch provide 40 GB per 8K endpoint; no special or unusual switches are required.
“SDVoE is truly the first AV over IP solution to support 8K resolutions – and the fact that it is compatible with existing SDVoE systems is important,” said Justin Kennington, President of SDVoE Alliance. “An existing 4K 10G SDVoE transmitter can send signals to a new 8K 4x10G SDVoE receiver. The reverse is true, assuming 4K content is sent from the 8K transmitter. What goes in comes out without compromise, without compression or added latency.
