If the AV sector is to fulfill its growth potential over the next five years it will need more people to carry out the work. But where will they come from and how will they be trained?

InfoComm International, the trade association representing the commercial audio-visual and information communication industries, recently announced their election results for the 2014 InfoComm International Board of Directors.

Pre-stored EDID is communicated to the source based on a user-selected resolution and refresh rate. Alternatively, the EDID 101H can be set to capture and store EDID information when connected to a display.
An HPD – Hot Plug Detect port provides control for remote cameras and other signal sources that require a periodic HPD trigger.
“Problems with EDID communication between devices have become a major headache for AV integrators,” says Casey Hall, VP of sales and marketing for Extron.
“The EDID 101H solves these problems by ensuring that EDID information is properly communicated between the HDMI source and display.”
The EDID 101H joins the EDID 101 Series of EDID emulators, which includes the EDID 101D for DVI and the EDID 101V for VGA signals.
The EDID 101H is housed in a 1in high, quarter rack width metal enclosure for discreet installation. An energy-efficient external universal power supply is included.
