Asheridge on the road again with HDMI™ The Adventure Continues

2 -5 November

Following the success of Asheridge Communications HDMI™ Road shows in December 2008, the specialist provider of home AV solutions is running another series of one day events from 2 -5th November. The sessions will again be led by the world authority on the subject, Jeff Boccaccio, President of US based DPL Labs and InVisions Technology. The latest course will also include a presentation by Fluke networks on termination and testing of fibre optic cables typically used in the latest fibre distributed HDMI and DVI systems.

The Asheridge Road shows will help installers and designers of HDMI™ distributed systems to improve their knowledge and understanding of this High Definition Interface, as well as providing tips on isolating and fixing typical HDMI™ faults. The course will bring installers up to date with the latest HDMI 1.4 standard and what it means to them.

There will also be the opportunity for fibre termination and testing, during the 2nd half of the day when fibre optic training will be provided by Fluke Networks. Attendees at the Roadshow will also have the benefit of Cedia accredited training points.

"Asheridge are building on the success of the December 08 HDMI™ Road shows and this will give the UK CI Industry another chance to get impartial advice from a man who knows HDMI inside out. A number of key topics will be covered in the course , including what stops HDMI™ working as well as HDMI™ 1.4 and what it will mean to installers. We also hope that the questions and answers sessions at the end of the course will help installers to understand how to handle future HDMI™ issues and to learn from real life HDMI™ problems that others on the course may have experienced . We want this course to educate our installers as well as act as an industry forum to share ideas and knowledge", says Sales Director Kevin Swanton.

Attendees on the course will also qualify for special offers on a range of HDMI™ solutions available from Asheridge.
