What is IPBaseT®?

The Ultimate Solution for 4K AV Distribution Over IP

Aurora’s IPBaseT® combines a variety of 4K IP technologies and features under one unified protocol using a simplified topology. Uncompressed video with zero-latency, visually lossless video with low latency, seamless switching, videowall and multiviewer modes, digital audio, USB 2.0, Ethernet, and control are just some of the core capabilities of IPBaseT®. Utilizing the bandwidth of a standard 1Gbps copper (VLX Series) or 10Gbps copper or Fiber (IPX Series), IPBaseT® supports large scalable audio/video matrixing, and it does so while replacing multiple technologies and products with a “single-box” distributed platform. The days of needing a separate AV switcher, control system, videowall processor, audio/DSP converter, and more are a thing of the past!

Training Overview:

This day-long course starts with an interactive session covering the basics of IP networking, followed by hands-on training exploring an AV-over-IP system. It includes the installation, configuration and management aspects of the system including encoders and decoders as well as the management platform, which drives configuration and content management.

IPBaseT training sessions will make AV Engineers learn what they need to know to leverage the standard for high performance AV network deployments in education, healthcare, enterprise, entertainment, hospitality, retail, houses of worship, government, military, industry and security.

Upon Completion:

Upon completion of the course, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand the basics of IP network communication
  • Describe the OSI communication model
  • Understand the TCP/IP suite of protocols
  • Understand how to leverage IP networks for AV solutions
  • Understand the capabilities of AV over IP
  • Understand the IP network infrastructure requirements to deploy a system effectively
  • Select the appropriate switch for deployment
  • Install and configure an AV-over-IP system
  • Interact with a management platform


Before taking this course, attendees are recommended to have the following knowledge,

AV Project Gallery Walk of Fame

AV Integrated Systems Expo has created an independent, neutral and all-inclusive open platform in India, fulfilling an important need for the AV-ISE and Information Communication industry in India.

In line with the expo’s mantra of “Motivating the market and putting technology in place”, AV-ISE expo has conceptualized a special Project Gallery feature at the expo, which is branded as the AV Project Gallery Walk of Fame.

This gallery will enable top AV Consultants and SIs in the country to have a space of their own to showcase their projects and expertise to a target audience of end users comprising – CTOs, CIOs, procurement and purchase managers across segments which include Corporate, Government, Hospitality, Retail, BFSI etc.

Within the AV Project Gallery Walk of Fame area, design consultant and integrators can display and highlight graphic and/or video presentations of their best and bespoke projects with succinct explanation of all the technologies integrated in the design on interactive / touch screen displays.

Anil Chopra, Director, AV Integrated Systems expo & PALM expo, enthuses on the new opportunities “The expo is indeed going to result in quantum growth. In a robust market with innumerable AV projects we see a great need to provide education and training toward which the expo will in fact contribute consciously. Promise is to be neutral with the objective to spread information.

As such our focus is the engineering talent pool who must be introduced to global best practices, standards and specifications.”
