AV distributor CIE-Group has partnered with HDMI/HDBaseT specialist CYP Europe to provide a series of free, one-day training academies on the application of HDBaseT and HDMI in pro-AV multimedia distribution for the UK integrator market. The courses also include additional content aimed at helping integrators and installers understand "the challenges of 4K".
Dates for upcoming sessions are:
Tuesday 2 December: CYP Academy, Shepperton, Surrey
Thursday 4 December: CYP Academy, Shepperton, Surrey
Tuesday 9 December: Hilton Bracknell Hotel, Berkshire
Thursday 11 December: Hilton Liverpool Hotel
Thursday 18 December: CYP Academy, Shepperton, Surrey
"HDBaseT and 4K are the latest buzzwords in AV signal distribution," says CIE's CYP product manager, Martin Featherstone. "Our HDBaseT academies will help demystify some of the technical jargon surrounding the technologies, and provide examples of how this exciting technology can work for your installations, as well as dispelling some of the myths.
"We understand that for an installer to invest their day with us, we have to deliver value, so the CYP training academies we're delivering provide highest quality information and knowledge and – importantly, we believe – are provided completely free of charge.”
The sessions will offer a balance of structured presentations, interactive demonstrations and hands-on Q&A on HDBaseT 5Play and HDMI distribution, the cornerstone of CYP's latest range of AV distribution products. HDBaseT provides "an unrivalled feature-set" which converges full, uncompressed HD audio, video 100BaseT Ethernet, power over Ethernet (PoE) and control signals through single Cat-5e/6 cable over distances of 100 metres.
Delegates will also receive a free lunch, refreshments throughout the day, access to exclusive discounts on CYP orders and a first look at new and future products from CYP and CIE-Group.
