Panel debate: AV over IP
AV-over-IP is Audio Visual over Internet Protocol. Gradually we're replacing traditional AV with IP-based infrastructures. This affects not only the future of signal routing, but also control, system management and presentation. Make no mistake - this is big. Currently there is NO adopted standard for sending AV signals over the network - there are multiple ways of doing it, and none of the options are interoperable.

So, how can buyers plan ahead? What business and technical factors should be considered? We put those who should know in the frame for what promises to be something of a lively half hour.

This panel discussion will be moderated by Clive Couldwell, Group Editor, AV Magazine.
