And why do I want it?

AV 101 - Session 3 - What the Heck is 4k, UHD and HDR?

Im glad to bring you the third session in our AV 101 series, “What the Heck is 4k UHD and HDR and do I Want It?” As I have mentioned before in the AV101 article series, there are a ton confusing terms and acronyms in the audio/video industry. This can make it extremely difficult to understand what you are buying and what you need to get the best performance out of your system. Today we are going to try and explain another set of terms and what they mean to your Home Entertainment experience; 4K, UHD and HDR.

What can a "Smart Home" do for me?

AV 101: Session 2 - What is a Smart Home?

Welcome to the second session in AV Enthusiast’s AV 101 series, What is a Smart Home? We hear the term “smart home” thrown around in the media, in web articles and on the news. It is used when talking about energy efficiency, home automation and convenience. These are all correct, but are only parts of what makes a home “smart” Today we will try and help you understand how all of these things can be combined to offer you a connected home environment that offers convenience, flexibility, and an enhanced lifestyle in an easy to use interface.

We recently installed an audio video system for Hudson Alpha Institute for Biotechnology for their educational department. The room we installed called for audio reinforcement, distributed video, video conferencing with ability to stream all A/V sources, audience microphones, presenter microphone 1) HDMI & VGA w/audio jack and the ability to do any function of the room with no more than 1-button press.

    For the audio reinforcement system we utilized EV RE90H ceiling microphones, EV RE92TX lapel microphones, EV RE2 receivers, EV PA4150L amplifier and EV EVID series in-ceiling speakers. All audio is routed through a Clear One DSP.

Custom White Rack The video switching is handled by a Vanco matrix HDMI switch. Feeding the Vanco are 3) Vaddio HD cameras (Vaddio ZoomSHOT, Vaddio WideSHOT and Vaddio CeilingVIEW HD-18 DocCAM), 1) Mac Mini, 1) Apple TV and 1) Atlona HDMI/VGA w/audio extender/scaler to handle the auxiliary jack on the desk.

The Vanco feeds all of these sources to 1) ASK Proxima projector, 1) Samsung 50" panel, 1) desk mounted 22" Samsung panel and the Vaddio A/V bridge which feeds the Mac Mini for video conferencing. Control/automation is handled with an RTI XP-8s processor, iPad and the RTI iPad panel. Everything resides in a custom finished gloss white Middle Atlantic EWR series wall hanging rack.

The service technicians were on time with the appt. and very friendly and efficient with the work and diagnosis of the problems I was having with my equipment. They made appropriate recommendations and installed some TV cable boxes for me. They also investigated equipment that had been damaged by lightening. Overall a timely and informative visit.
