In this webinar, we will explore the new options for network switches built from the ground up specifically for 1Gb AV over IP solutions. NETGEAR will present a new series of network switches built for AV with a simplified AV User Interface, sleek front panel with ports in the back, and a host of other features.

You'll hear from the experts on how these switches can help you deploy both simple and complex AV over IP installs faster and easier than before. Gone are the days of having to adapt a switch made for another purpose.

NETGEAR has made a name for itself as the only switch manufacturer who caters specifically to the Pro AV community with products that make it easier and a team of experts to help you with system design for free! For more information, see
