The Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA) has launched the second edition of its comprehensive guide to the world of residential electronic systems, the "Electronic Systems Technical Reference Manual".

To guarantee the improved material was correct, CEDIA employed over 30 experts and combined content from relevant standards, whitepapers and recommended practices which have been updated since the first edition was published in 2009. The Second Edition includes key updates, as well as new material on HDMI and Troubleshooting. Addressing a specific area of the industry, each chapter provides information in a clear and succinct way.

"The Technical Reference Manual is a vital resource for everyone in the industry wishing to better understand how to be more efficient and profitable in the field, along with improving understanding and problem solving skills," explains Matt Dodd, CEDIA's Education Chair. "The book prepares electronic systems professionals for key industry certifications, and is a necessity for anyone looking to better themselves or their business within the industry."

The Technical Reference Manual is an in-house guide aimed at technicians, designers, business owners, and sales representatives and serves as a "go-to" reference for all staff members to ensure projects are completed to a high standard whilst providing the best possible customer experience.

The Second Edition of the Electronic Systems Technical Reference Manual is now available and costs £65 for CEDIA members and £100 for non-members. To order your copy contact the CEDIA office on +44 (0) 1480 213744.
