At its root, AV over IP is a method of distributing audio, video, control signals and more over a standard IP Network. Initially the technology was used in a variety of ProAV applications due to its low bandwidth characteristics, compatibility with existing network infrastructures and cost-efficient scalability for large footprint arrays. To send HD video signals from a single source to an infinite number of screens, HDMI over Ethernet, also known as HDMI over IP, takes advantage of the existing Ethernet infrastructure.

Professional video over IP systems employs a standard video codec to compress the program material into a bitstream, then transmitted over an IP network as a stream of IP packets.

However, AV over IP technology has evolved to include low and zero latency transmissions, seamless switching and lossless video quality supporting 4K UHD, high frame rates, 4:4:4 and HDR to become an increasingly viable alternative to conventional AV transmission over distance technologies for both residential and commercial applications.
