What is AVoIP?
AVoIP is the name that has been coined for the paradigm of emerging audio-visual and media technologies being implemented and deployed as part of both newly designed and existing client IT infrastructures and networks. It is these technologies and solutions that has given rise to the unification of the roles, responsibilities and expertise of both AV and IT managers and engineers. It is therefore sub sequential, that it has never been of greater importance for companies within these industries to understand how both disciplines merge with each other, and bridge the gap between two constantly evolving professions.
"We really are best placed, in terms of our product range, knowledge and experience to offer you the best advice on both audio and video solutions and the transmission of their media content on both converged and separated network topologies. There is no escaping the fact, that with the assimilation of AV and IT infrastructures; AVoIP is here to stay."
What we can offer...
Our skilled team are able to offer the best advice, experience and solutions. We have demonstration rigs and equipment readily available on request, to illustrate the simplicity of set up and operation. We can also discuss network design and integration with your existing system and infrastructure as well as conversations with both AV and IT personnel. To date, we have deployed one of the world’s largest AVoIP installations in conjunction with our integrator partners, at London Metropolitan University. Our knowledge also covers design and deployment of centralised and de-centralised systems.
Biamp’s flagship audio and video platform, Tesira is a true Networked Media System and the first truly scalable media system for digital audio and video networking using AVB/TSN. Rounding out the Tesira platform are the TesiraLUX fixed video servers for transmitting 4K60 video over your network. All Tesira products can be configured and managed using Tesira software, helping you create the dynamic, efficient AV systems your customers need.
ZeeVee's ZyPer product family is a market-proven solution for distribution and management of IP-based AV networks.

POLAR have a long history with AV over IP (AVoIP). We have been involved in the design of audio networks for well over a decade and we have extensive knowledge and first-hand experience of audio networking, using some familiar standards, such as Cobranet, Dante and AVB. More recently, we have expanded our offerings and for the last four years, we have been designing and working with our clients in deploying video over the network.
POLAR’s extensive knowledge and experience of both Audio and Video over IP networks makes us an ideal partner for AVoIP; a 21st Century alternative to traditional video and audio distribution hardware.

WorkPRO Audio Over IP
BlueLine Digital MKII- Audio Over IP
The new fully stylized version of BlueLine offers a new way of multichannel and multi-zone audio installing, thanks to its guide profile and its anodized blue aluminum chassis. In addition to offering a significant physical change over its predecessor, this family incorporates new products which expand the possibilities of installation and, above all, increase the control comfort and simplicity.
Finally, the “V” in AVB is here. With the addition of TesiraLUX, Tesira now supports real-time video distribution over the network, with unmatched lip sync capabilities. Since Tesira manages the entire audio and video signal path, Tesira processing recognizes how long it takes for each signal to pass over the network, allowing it to accurately synchronize everything.
The TesiraLUX IDH-1* is an AVB video encoder that includes one HDMI 2.0a port and one DisplayPort 1.2 port. It accepts eight channels of embedded PCM audio and includes two mic/line level analog inputs.
The TesiraLUX OH-1* is an AVB video decoder that includes one HDMI 2.0a port. It outputs eight channels of embedded PCM audio and includes two mic/line level analog outputs.
*IDH-1 encoder and OH-1 decoder sold as separate items
ZeeVee offer the ZyPer4K encoder and decoder units, allowing you to easily distribute both 1080p and 4K/UHD video - from any source to an unlimited number of displays directly over a standard 10Gb Ethernet switch. For audio, ZyPer4K distributes both analog and digital audio to each decoder - perfect for areas that need an affordable long distance audio solution. ZyPer4K will also distribute infrared, RS-232, and IP control codes from virtually any controller, including those from AMX, and Crestron.
