CIE Group announces new dates for its free HDMI / HDBaseT Training Academies

Free one-day training academies for the UK integrator market on the application of HDBaseT and HDMI in professional AV multimedia distribution.

Leading AV distributor CIE-Group has joined forces with HDMI / HDBaseT specialists CYP Europe to provide their latest phase of free, one-day training academies for the UK integrator market on the application of HDBaseT and HDMI in professional AV multimedia distribution. The courses also now include additional content to help integrators and installers understand the challenges of 4K.


Following great success with previous sessions held earlier this year throughout the UK, CIE-Group and CYP Europe will be hitting the roads again throughout November and December to deliver in-depth, one-day Training Academies to the UK commercial and home/custom install AV installation sectors.

This latest series of free HDBaseT Training Academies will run in November and December 2014 with places now being booked at our sessions in Nottingham, Shepperton, Bracknell and Liverpool on the following dates:

Wednesday 19th November: Nottingham @ CIE

Tuesday 2nd December: Shepperton @ CYP Academy

Thursday 4th December: Shepperton @ CYP Academy

Tuesday 9th December: Bracknell @ Hilton

Thursday 11th December: Liverpool @ Hilton

Thursday 18th December: Shepperton @ CYP Academy

These free HDMI / HDBaseT Training Academies provide all the core knowledge required to confidently specify and install both commercial and CI multi-room AV systems using standard HDMI and the latest HDBaseT 5Play and 3Play converged signal technologies.

"HDBaseT and 4K are the latest buzz words in AV signal distribution. Our HDBaseT Academies will help demystify some of the technical jargon surrounding the technologies, and provide examples of how this exciting technology can work for your installations; as well as dispelling some of the myths." explains CIE's CYP Product Manager Martin Featherstone.

Martin continues "We understand that for an installer to invest their day with us, we have to deliver value. So the CYP Training Academies we're delivering provide highest quality information and knowledge and - importantly we believe - are provided completely free of charge."

The sessions offer a balance of structured presentations, interactive demonstrations and 'hands-on' Q&A on HDBaseT 5Play and HDMI distribution, the cornerstone of CYP's latest range of AV distribution products. HDBaseT provides an unrivalled feature-set which converges full uncompressed HD video, audio, 100BaseT Ethernet, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) and control signals through single Cat5e/6 cable over distances of 100 metres.

Delegates will also be treated to free lunch, refreshments throughout the day as a well as access to exclusive discounts on CYP orders and a first look at new and future products from CYP and CIE-Group.

Places can be booked by calling 0115 9770075, emailing info@cie-group.com or visiting the website www.cie-group.com
