How Does Media Distribution Help You Prep for Football Season?
Get Ready for Game Day From the Home Media Room to the Bedroom
Kickoff is almost here, and whether you’ll be rooting for the Eagles or anyone else this year, you’ll want to do it in style. From the home media room to the living room, your Delaware Valley property can really get in the game with a smart home upgrade. By integrating awesome AV solutions and smart media distribution capabilities, you’ll never miss a moment of the action. In this blog, we’ll show you how intelligent automation can make this football season spectacular.
Achieving Ultra HD
So you’ve got the 4K displays mounted, the immersive audio booming and every game running on the various monitors. There’s just one problem – you’re not watching them in true Ultra HD. As professional sports leagues continue to make the leap into 4K (DirecTV began broadcasting MLB games in the format earlier this year) many fans have decided to take the plunge with their at-home displays. But it takes more than the most expensive TV to get the most out of the game.
That’s because, in addition to the unit itself, you’ll probably need to upgrade the cables in your home – namely HDMI. You see, traditional HDMI can’t handle the demands of 4K because it doesn’t have enough bandwidth. That’s why you’ll need to invest in HDMI 2.0. When robust UHD content tries to go through a standard HDMI cable, it can quickly cause a sort of traffic jam, but when you use HDMI 2.0, there’s enough room for it to breathe.
Distributing Ultra HD
But what about when the unthinkable happens and you have to emerge from the man cave to do something menial, like washing the dishes or folding the laundry? You don’t have to grumble about it when you can stream the same video quality throughout your entire property. The secret is HDBaseT.
While it’s not exactly the most exciting aspect of home AV, the means of distribution throughout your home can have a huge impact on how much you enjoy it. HDBaseT is a new distribution standard that utilizes common Ethernet cables connected to your components to distribute full Ultra HD picture and sound. Much like HDMI 2.0, HDBaseT offers enough bandwidth to satisfy 4K requirements, while reaching distances of up to 300 feet. Needless to say, the game will look just as good in your bedroom as in your man cave.
