Audio video over IP (AV over IP) technology is revolutionizing the way audio and video are sent and received over networks. This technology enables a new era of remote and distributed collaboration, with better audio and video quality than ever before.
Despite the growing popularity of AV over IP technology, there is a common misconception that a blanket approach to IP-based audio and video can work for all applications. Selecting an audio video over IP transmission that is not tailored to the application's varied needs results in a compromised solution.
In reality, applications often have multiple use cases and would benefit from more than one AV-over-IP technology. Therefore, understanding the key differences between the three major AV-over-IP technologies is essential to understanding which one, or which ones, are best suited for a particular application.
To help you understand the best options for your video over IP setup, we’ll explore three of the major audio video over IP transmission technologies available before describing the core characteristics that dictate AV/IP chemistry.
