What is SAVANT?
SAVANT is an Home/Business Automation platform, which is able to control and automate most devices (that has a standard control interface*) through a single app (Savant Pro).
The Savant ecosystem is built upon a centralized computing framework which then communicates with various home automation products for all primarily categories of control. The communication link is either made through Savant group of modular-based controllers or directly to the devices in use.
The categories are assigned, but not limited, to the following key segments:
Music & Entertainment
Climate & Energy
In additional, a Savant System can interface with and control many other categories. Speak to our Savant Integrator to find out more.
*The common control protocols are: — IR (Infrared Red) / Serial Port / IP (Internet Protocol)
Savant’s heritage came from the telecommunications world, where we led the evolution of the telecom switching fabric as it went from a large centralized switch to a distributed architecture using Voice over IP (VoIP). This was done by putting gateways at the edge of the network and converting all the voice to IP, then using the IP backbone as a switching fabric to the termination side, where the packets were then converted back to their native format.
Savant is using all that experience to lead the charge again in the AV domain - in a very simplistic view we are putting an IP interface on new Savant products. This allows for physical distribution of the different components as well as infinite scalability. We can also build each of those inputs and outputs in a module size that makes sense for the application.
WHERE IT LEADS US — 4K and Beyond
The Savant AV over IP design provides a very scalable end-to-end hardware and software platform for AV extension, switching, processing and control.
This is essential in delivering pristine pixel perfect 4K60 4:4:4 HDR video over dedicated standard 10 Gigabit (Gb) Ethernet network, with zero-frame latency and no compression for the most part.
This is different the other network AV products on the market that use a 1 Gb technology with highly-compressed video, significant latency and low bandwidth. Integration professionals alike will appreciate the convenience of a centralized 10GbE network switch, enabling Ethernet connectivity throughout the project with both fiber and copper options.
Support for 4K video ensures end-to-end support of the latest generation of AV sources with native resolutions up to 4096 x 2160. The advanced video processing features supported by the new platform include multi-view (video tiling), video wall and seamless switching applications. The broadcast-quality integrated video processor and scalar delivers unmatched, immersive viewing experience supporting the most popular video formats and resolutions. The builtin 4K60 4:4:4 scaler will seamlessly downscale sources for legacy HD displays.
This is the solution to our customers who are worried that the high bandwidth usage in 4K display will cause lag and unpleasant viewing experience.
