    In this short post, you will learn what Power Over Ethernet (PoE) and Power Over Cable (PoC) are and how they can benefit your AV set up, whether it be security cameras or outdoor TVs.

    More and more AV installers and residential users are turning to PoE and PoC equipment to provide power to remote areas where power outlets aren’t available and running long power cords is inconvenient.

    PoE and PoC are both based on the same principle of simultaneously providing both data and power over the same cable from one device to another.

    What is Power Over Ethernet?

    Power over Ethernet, commonly known as PoE, is a technology used to pass electrical power long with data (video and audio from HDMI or other) over CAT 5e/6/6a/7 Ethernet cabling from one device to another. It is standardized to adhere to a specific v

  3. Wireless HDMI: Best Home Theater System Solution

    Wireless HDMI: Best Home Theater System Solution

    Wireless HDMI is taking home theater systems by storm!

    Homeowners are looking to modernize their living spaces with flat panel TV’s mounted on the wall and cable boxes hidden away. Some may call this a minimalistic approach to home décor.

    Modern technology is making this feat a lot easier and we are here to show you how.

    Wireless HDMI solutions aren’t new, but they are more reliable and accessible than ever before.

    Previously you couldn’t trust that a wireless HDMI signal would be able to hold up in most environments. Signal drops, bad quality picture, and latency made it impossible for wireless HDMI to become a trend. In addition, these systems were expensive and there weren’t many options to choose from.

    Now the tides have turned! Wireless HDMI solutions are now readily available at relatively affordable prices to give users the home the

  4. Why Do We Need HDMI Extenders?

    HDMI has replaced older analog video solutions and has provided an easier, more efficient way to transmit audio and video data. It is one of the core components of multimedia systems and it is hard to imagine ever going back to analog. That doesn’t mean it’s perfect.

    Problem 1:

    HDMI cables are the most familiar hardware and we love their simplicity. However, as with anything, HDMI cables have their downfalls. In this particular case, we will focus on distance.

    HDMI cables lose effectiveness and reliability at certain lengths. 50 feet is generally known as the max distance you would consider using an HDMI cable, but it isn’t recommended to use an HDMI cable over 30 feet. Even after 15 feet, HDMI cables are more prone to signal degradation, leading to blinking, loss of signal, or snowy dots on the screen. HDMI cables 50 feet and over can prove to be very costly and are often

  5. How Does an HDMI Extender Work?

    How Does an HDMI Extender Work?

     

    How does an HDMI extender work?

    Typical connections from an HDMI source such as a Blu-ray player or satellite box to an HDMI display would be an HDMI cable. Unfortunately, the downside to an HDMI cable is there is a limit to how far HDMI data can be transmitted. The theoretical limit is 50 feet, and it’s incredibly rare to find an HDMI cable over 25 feet. In addition, Longer HDMI cables can be pretty expensive.

    The solution is to use an HDMI extender.  These devices will convert the HDMI signal to something that can sustain the high bandwidth required over a longer distance. One of the most accessible transmission methods is using serial communication over Cat 5, 6 or 7 Ethernet cable. HDMI would be transported over Ethernet Cat 5e / 6 / 7 cables using an HDMI Extender over Cat cable. An HDMI Extender over Cat 5e / 6 / 7 cables consists of a Transmitter
