Professional audio-visual installers can quickly and effectively terminate HDMI 1.4 capabilities in the field, as recently demonstrated by audio-visual cable expert Comprehensive. The following video — taken at the October AVI-SPL University event in Tampa — showcases the HDMI-EZ termination system and its ease of use:
HDMI 1.4 is a big improvement over previous standards because it supports high-definition video resolutions of up to 4096×2160. Another advantage of HDMI 1.4 is that it enables high-speed networking – at speeds up to 100 Mb/sec – and features an audio return channel that reduces the number of cables needed to send audio upstream from a TV to an A/V receiver.
As HDMI 1.4 connections are increasingly applied in commercial installations, it’s become important for pro AV installers to make efficient use of their time and quickly terminate them in the field. With this ability, they can create custom lengths ideally suited to any particular job.
