In home_page, Image, Industry News, Uncategorized, Video/Broadcast, Video/Broadcast Industry News, Web Articlesby admin

C2G is providing AV integrators with an in-depth look at the challenges of extending HDMI connectivity beyond its 15-meter passive connectivity limitation in its latest white paper “Ghost in the HDMI Machine,” written by Legrand’s AV Technology Evangelist Joseph D. Cornwall, CTS-D/I. Available for download here, the white paper dives into why this high-bandwidth connection is sensitive to a number of issues arising from manufacturing decisions and installation environmental conditions and how integrators can ensure dependable operation of client’s media solutions.

“HDMI is both the single most significant connection — and challenge — of 21st century AV design,” said Cornwall. “While we’ve certainly come a long way since the inception of this technology, there are still times when a well-done installation mysteriously runs aground. At that moment, it’s often difficult to pinpoint the source of the problem. That may lead to some intensive hours spent troubleshooting and ordering equipment. This white paper is the result of our intensive research and analysis and exposes what lies at the heart of many HDMI extension problems — proper application of power. Our goal is to help integrators anticipate, avoid, and address HDMI issues efficiently and effectively.”
