Universal Serial Bus is a core technology for interactive, presentation, and collaboration AV systems. With new USB power delivery and connection standards in place, a comprehensive understanding of USB design theory and integration practices has never been more important. USB is a core element of advanced system design from control, to power, to signal transport. This class will prepare the participant with a deep dive exploration of USB 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.1 and PD technology standards, applications and performance. Participants will learn about USB for use with interactive flat panels and projectors, interactive white boards, USB charging stations and more.Sign Up
HDBaseT has had a profound impact on the AV community. Introduced in 2010, this technology, based on a Valens chip set, empowers plug-and-play connectivity between HD video sources and remote displays. Delivering a 5Play feature set that includes uncompressed high definition video, audio, 100BaseT Ethernet, various control signals, and up to 100w of power (PoH), HDBaseT is at the technology that powers sophisticated products from the AV industry's most advanced manufacturers. This important presentation will take you beyond the features and benefits of typical marketing messages and will explore the science and technology behind IEEE standard P1911.3.Sign Up
All courses are 1 hour and equal to 1 AIA-LU, InfoComm CTS-RU, BICSI-CEC, & NSCA-LU credit, unless otherwise noted.
In this one hour presentation we will explore the 5 technologies, both wired and wireless, that will deliver the greatest effect on deployment of the last 100 meters of digital video infrastructure over the next 5 years.
Do you know that your system will perform, or are you just hoping it will? This course will help you avoid the most common pitfalls of bus powered A/V solutions and ensure that your system delivers quality, dependable performance.
In this presentation participants will explore the characteristics and technology deployed in HDBaseT and Ultra Wideband wired and wireless AV connectivity solutions. This one-hour exploration will focus on operational theory, comparative performance metrics and practical application of the technology to common AV installations.
In order to incorporate emerging technologies like interactive tablets, 3D video and streaming content into classrooms at a K12 level and beyond, good infrastructure choices must be made. Learn more with this presentation.
In the same way that the HDMI connector fundamentally disrupted the industry, emerging technologies such as USB Type C, USB 3.1, USB Power Delivery v2.0, HDBaseT, HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 2.0 and embedded active chipsets in unexpected places will land an impactful blow. But unlike HDMI, these changes won't take 12 years to settle in. Prepare to see a new industry in half that time!
This presentation will look at HDBaseT 5-Play features and will carefully review HDBaseT Lite, HDBaseT, and Valens Colligo™ HDBaseT optical solutions. If you need to come up to speed on all things HDBaseT to make a good design, installation or purchase decision, this is the presentation you've been waiting for.
How do you know what's being said, when nothing is being said? Sales relationships demand an environment of mutual communication. Learn how to direct a conversation, how to interpret non-verbal cues and how to get your point across while respecting the communication bias of the target.
This presentation will provide an overview ranging from line-level analog signals, through PCM, PWM and algorithm-compressed audio standards, and even speaker level signals including low impedance, 25-volt and 70-volt technologies.
In this seminar participants will be learn about the contemporary RF spectrum, including recent changes that redefine the concept of a "channel." We will explore fundamental MATV concepts including RF power levels and the dBmV (decibel-millivolt) unit of measure, RF equalization, taps, splitters and the need to balance an MATV distribution system.
Attendees will be presented with a synopsis of various selling comfort levels and the best way to identify and leverage communication strengths. We will explore the effect of non-verbal communication on the sales presentation, learn to recognize the "receptor bias" of the client based on non-verbal and verbal cues, and learn to tailor the sales message to the client by using kinesthetic, visual and auditory communicative biases.
If you want to know how to accommodate legacy DVI-D and simultaneously prepare for Thunderbolt, then this is a training you won't want to miss. If you are looking for a competitive edge, and you're just not sure what all these new acronyms mean for your and your project, then this will be time well spent. Join us for Understanding Digital Video Formats – From DVI-D to Thunderbolt and More and step into the future with confidence!
Participants in this program will leave with a full understanding of the genesis and evolution of the USB standard, best installation practices and challenges and the future of data connections. Along with audio and video, USB is fast becoming one of the most important A/V project connections. Don't be left behind.
This class will prepare the participant with a deep dive exploration of USB 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.1 and PD technology standards, applications and performance. Participants will learn about USB for use with interactive flat panels and projectors, interactive white boards, USB charging stations and more.
