DPL Labs' Boccaccio to Reveal Critical HDMI Installation Secrets in New CEDIA EXPO Seminar 'Rev. 1.4 Revealed'

Company Partners with Ethereal, Honeywell, NextGen, and Perfect Path by PPC to Offer Four Seminar Sessions at Key Trade Event

ORMOND BEACH, FL - AUGUST 17, 2010 - DPL Laboratories, Inc. (DPL Labs), the industry's leading HDMI product testing and performance rating program, announced today that company President Jeffrey Boccaccio will be offering an all -new and informative seminar on HDMI technology at the upcoming CEDIA Expo titled "Rev. 1.4 Revealed." The company plans to conduct four separate seminar sessions in partnership with Ethereal Home Theater, Honeywell, NextGen, and Perfect Path by PPC…all participating members in the DPL Seal of Approval Program…over the first three days of the Expo which takes place September 23 to September 26, 2010 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA.

In "Rev. 1.4 Revealed," Boccaccio will deeply explore the latest revision of the HDMI specification to reveal critical details on proper installation techniques to maximize the performance of the interface. Boccaccio will also discuss proper system configuration considerations to ensure the ultimate reliability of short - and long -term performance.

The information presented will help installers and integrators better understand the issues surrounding this latest HDMI specification revision which introduces new features like 3D technology, 4K X 2K resolution, and more…all offering potential new challenges relevant to high -performance A/V system installations. All installers and integrators will want to hear Boccaccio's advice that can often mean the difference between satisfied clients with peak performing systems…or endless, profit -eating follow -up service calls from unhappy former customers.
