Major manufacturers are certainly pushing their video over IP products quite significantly these days, but it is not a inexpensive solution.

Obviously, there will be cheap point-to-point products that will work, and those that work reasonably well in a home environment.

But, the headache of all of these is the demand for a enterprise grade switch. You have to have a list of major functions from a managed switch. This is not something that the average consumer has access to, and Cisco doesn't give a ***** about whether or not you actually have a problem. They really don't.

So, you are on your own, in a nearly unsupported world, with a Enterprise grade IT system... and you better know how IT works front to back if you ever have an actual issue.

Oh, and these real time encoders for HDMI are NOT inexpensive. Real time lossless encoding of HD and UHD is expensive. Crestron encoders start at about $1,000 per end point. Yes, they do 4K beautifully. But, a 8x8 setup will run in excess of $16,000. Plus the network configuration, cabling, and switch.

In almost every scenario we've run into, using a HDBT switch has been significantly less expensive than video over IP solutions.

Thanks-you speak from knowledge and experience.
