This recent entry in my article contributions to SCN Magazine find me talking about a hardware free AV industry. The advancements in technology and IP based communications have evolved the AV systems into network centric systems. This means that hardware can be removed from the equation, and properly designed networks and coding can help save money, and space.
This article is the next installment in my series of articles for SCN Magazine and the AVnetwork blog. The topic for this month was video processing so I decided to cover video processing techniques int he digital age. The article highlights a few methods of processing video for display walls or collaborative environments that reduces the amount of hardware in the system. It discusses the virtual and software techniques of processing and transporting video that opens up more versatile ways of designing system while keeping everything networked to reduce infrastructure and help future proof the designs.
