InfoComm’s “Understanding Digital Video Formats — From DVI-D to Thunderbolt and More!”

This webinar was completed on Aug 27, 2015.

The AV world has moved away from analog connectivity and it’s not moving back. Digital video is your future! In addition to sourcing content in the digital domain, we must understand the variation in connectivity and performance. Add to this the demand for digital content protection and the realities of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), coupled with the proliferation of digital mobile devices and commercial/consumer convergence, and it all means that the ability to accommodate emerging standards in enterprise environments has never been more important. If you’re wondering how long your aging VGA connections in your conference rooms will suffice, you’ll find the answers in this presentation. If you need to know if HDMI or DisplayPort is the right connectivity to design into your next system, then this is a class you need to take. 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!

The TesiraForte is a digital signal processor "DSP" that offers AEC among other features for audio. It's installed after a mixer in live environments. But mostly this unit is used in room installations for teleconferencing. I took this online course during the interview process with AVI-SPL. Whew! That was helpful. biamp

InfoComm’s “Displayed Image Size for 2D Content: How Big is Big Enough?”

This webinar was completed on July 9, 2015. InfoComm changed their standards after this webinar so back to the starting board. This is typical in the AV Industry - everything is constantly being reinvented. A standard development task group is studying this very question to determine how big a displayed image should be, and the answer may surprise you. Their work is based on teachings from the 4-6-8 rule and more recent science and testing, as well as the viewing categories used in PISCR (the Projected Image System Contrast Ratio standard). Don't know what those categories are? Come hear Greg Jeffreys update you on the latest findings of the group and what they still have to figure out! Learning Objectives:
Learn the science behind determining displayed image-size requirements Understand the difference between analytical viewing and basic decision-making viewing Apply the visual acuity factor to formulas for determining proper displayed image size
