Have you struggled with HDMI in a commercial setting or are you looking for an alternative? What are EDID delays and how can they be mitigated? What is FST? What is HDMI's range, really? What are the differences between HDbaseT and HDMI? Do you need to know more about managing DisplayPort interoperability? Do you want to know more about UWB vs. WHDI wireless standards and where they are going?

Whether you want an introduction or a refresher—or you have questions to ask--this is a great opportunity to clarify your understanding of new connectivity technologies. A live Q&A session will give you a chance to ask specific questions.

Here are some of the connectivity topics that our speaker will cover:

  • HDbaseT vs. HDMI
  • HDMI range extension
  • HDMI over Cat-5
  • EDID and FST
  • DisplayPort interoperability
  • Wireless technologies UWB, 802.11, WHDI and where they're headed
  • Power over Ethernet
