Leveraging Canvas with NETGEAR’s proAV series switches and LG webOS displays, SAVI’s strategic partnerships form an unbeatable trio in the commercial AV space.

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 27, 2021 — SAVI Controls, designer and manufacturer of simple control and automation solutions, today announced its partnership with NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTGR), the leading provider of networking products in the commercial AV market. This partnership builds on SAVI’s longtime alliance with commercial display leader LG Business Solutions USA to deliver simplified AV-over-IP solutions with enhanced network integration.

Seamless network integration is critical for AV-over-IP installations, and the newly SAVI Certified NETGEAR M4250 and M4300 managed switches – paired with and the proven SAVI Canvas and the LG webOS smart platforms – provide customers with an unparalleled video distribution experience while reducing system cost, cabling, and networking complexity.

“I’ve been a fan of NETGEAR since the late ‘90s, and our partnership is yet another step in providing commercial integrators and their end-users with powerful, reliable, and, most importantly, simple tools to heighten their AV experiences,” said SAVI CEO, John Dorsey. “Partnering with industry leaders, like NETGEAR and LG, advances our dealers’ ability to provide seamless integration and interoperability without the unnecessary complexity of most solutions on the market.”

“NETGEAR is very excited to welcome SAVI as a key Pro AV partner,” said Laurent Masia, Director of Product Line Management for Managed Switches at NETGEAR. “The combination of our easy-to-configure and highly capable AV network switches along with SAVI’s world-class products allows us to create a better experience for end-users.”

SAVI Canvas, built into LG webOS-enabled indoor and outdoor commercial displays, eliminates the box behind the display, enabling custom content delivery, management, and system control with only a single network cable. Similar to Canvas engineering, NETGEAR switches are designed to remove pain points for commercial integrators by offering optimized switching with a suite of advanced features at a fraction of the cost.

Meticulous interoperability testing has proven that the SAVI-certified switches are ideal for SAVI Canvas and LG webOS deployments utilizing features like AV-over-IP Multicast functionality, Hardware Flow Control, IGMP Snooping, IGMP Querier, and either Layer 2 or Layer 3 switching options.

“Certified Dealers can now purchase NETGEAR switches directly from SAVI,” said Byron Baird, VP of Sales at SAVI. “Our strategic partnerships with LG and NETGEAR radically simplify project procurement while ensuring tighter integration for enhanced video distribution and multicast experiences.”
