What is AV Over IP?

AV Meets IP

      Audio-Visual over Internet Protocol also referred to as “AVoIP or AV/IP” has been around for quite some time, however it has primarily been utilized in commercial environments. Since Manufacturers have invested heavily into this technology as the inevitable future of Audio/Video signal Distribution. AV/IP technology now accommodates Residential, Commercial, Government and Broadcasting environments.

      How does it work? AVoIP technology offers the ability to view a Source such as: Cable Box, DVD or Roku Player, by transmitting the signal from the Source to a Monitor Display utilizing the LAN, WAN or Internet via a seamless network switch. Simply put, the Source(s) plugs into an IP Encoder unit using a typical HDMI cable, the Encoder then plugs into the Network Switch Via CAT6 cable. The Encoder job is to encapsulate and compress the audio/video information in packets and send the packets via the Network Switch to an IP Decoder located at or behind the Display(s). A CAT6 cable from a switch plugs into the Decoder unit which then De-compresses the encapsulated packets for HD and or 4K video signals. The Decoder has an HDMI output that will plug in to the Display for video and audio. Most applications will require the use of the Manufacturers software program and or a 3rd party Control Program such as Crestron, Savant, Control 4, Etc.
      The benefits to this technology is that after the initial investment the system becomes very cost-effective providing flexibility, scalability and maintenance simplicity by replacing individual units if failure occurs versus an entire matrix switcher system. This technology will also work in conjunction with existing A/V infrastructures.

      Until recently AVoIP technology has not been a realistic consideration for most residential environments due to the expensive initial implementing costs, as well the limitations in Bandwidth, Video Resolutions and Audio format capabilities. Now that AVoIP uses minimal bandwidth and is available in 4K/HDR resolutions as well multiple audio formats including Dolby, DTS, Atmos, etc. The consideration to implement this technology in residential applications has now become a reality.

      There are many brands to choose from offering some similar technologies, but with a variance in options and specs from model to model. It is important to understand these differences as it applies to your personal requirements and home environment.

With a wide range of options when it comes to connections types such as DVI, SDI, HDMI, VGA, RS232/IR. AVoIP makes simplifies connection types when it comes to conversions from one type of connection to another. Adapters are typically not necessary since you are sending the transmission over the Network using Category cabling versus cable to cable. The Encoder can provide the input connection (DVI) at the Source Device and the Decoder will provide an output connection (HDMI) required for the receiving device.

      In addition, AVoIP offers virtually limitless expansion for business infrastructures with multiple offices, floor levels and remote buildings utilizing beneficial technologies such as Video Conferencing, Remote Computer Connections and Digital Signage. There is a vast array of products and solutions varying from brand to brand and model to model. So, it is critical to understand the application requirements of the organization in order to design the best overall solution to fit the company’s current and future AVoIP requirements.
