These two workshops, led by CEDIA’s education director, Simon Buddle and featuring subject matter experts from within the CEDIA community, will each comprise four separate sessions and allow installers to explore these significant topics in greater depth and detail.
The Ultra HD workshop will start by looking at HDMI 2.0 and HDCP updates and specifically their data rates.
It will also include audio in the matrix world (including ARC), 3D and lip-synching, HDBaseT, H265 and other transmission technologies.
In the Wireless workshop ‘Frequency vs. Wavelength vs. Data’ rate will be covered in the first session followed by a session asking ‘802.11ac – what does it deliver?’
It will then move on to testing wireless, channel and spectrum analysis and ping vs. throughput measurement.
Finally, a session entitled ‘Fit for purpose’ will look at which services can be expected to reliably work over wireless.
On Day One of the Tech Forum, event sponsors AWE, Crestron, Future Automation, Habitech, HDanywhere, Invision, Leaf, Pulse Marketing, Savant Systems Europe and Wyrestorm will be hosting brand specific product training across a variety of subjects.
Installers will also be able to book places to attend a CEDIA keynote presentation, delivered this year by global technology consultant, Maria Ingold and the annual CEDIA AGM taking place in the early evening on November 26.
Attendees will gain hands-on experience with real products, experience the functionality aspects of relative approaches and be able to prove and disprove misconceptions. They will also get the chance to also probe, question and explore the products’ capabilities and particular manufacturer claims.
CEDIA members and non-members who wish to attend day two of the CEDIA Tech Forum can purchase tickets online at www.cedia.co.uk/cedia-events.
Installers and designers wishing to attend both days of the Tech Forum and the Keynote Presentation can also book places from www.cedia.co.uk/cedia-events. The AGM is applicable to CEDIA members only.
