It's always exciting for audio/video enthusiasts and novices alike when their new speakers, big flat-screen TV, A/V receiver and other components arrive at the front door, ready to be unboxed and set up for the first movie viewing and home theater experience.
As I alluded to in my last article entitled "3 Reasons why Home Technology Integration is about to Ignite", Streaming Media is the number one reason that I predict a drastic shift spanning the next few years.
This is the ninth and final chapter of a multi-part series covering all aspects of low voltage wiring in the home: entertainment, security, automation, and future planning.

As audio/video hobbyists, most of us grew up thinking that if we have an amplifier with 50 watts of rated output power into 8-ohm speakers, and that combination produces reasonably clean and loud music, then by doubling the amplifier power to 100 watts per channel, the system would then play twice as loud. Many readers likely still believe that. Not so.
We all just want simple, convenient, reliable access to our equipment - and no one wants a dozen remotes on their coffee table. With a home control system, you can consolidate all those remotes and reduce wall clutter too.
The bottom line? While the Internet is an amazingly useful tool, it is not appropriate for every application - in spite of the efforts being made to tout it as such. Basic understanding of the limitations involved will help educated consumers make purchasing decisions that reflect their needs regardless of current techo-fashion trends or external market pressures.
Despite major advances in technology, viewing angle remains a serious challenge for LCD and LED TVs. This paper will examine research on LCD viewing angle issues and show how full-motion and tilting wall mounts can alleviate this issue and help consumers get the most out of their television investment.

The major broadcasters usually can’t agree on much, but they’ve agreed to band together and file a lawsuit against Ivi , claiming that the online video startup is infringing copyrights. The suit, filed in the Southern District of New York yesterday, aims to shut down Ivi’s video service, which retransmits over-the-air broadcast signals online . Ivi’s system works by relaying live TV feeds from more than 40 broadcasters — including ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and Telemundo — to online viewers. It claims to be operating under a legal loophole which says that cable and satellite companies can legally retransmit over-the-air broadcast content as long as they pay semi-annual fees to the U.S. Copyright Office. The startup says it has already applied to pay those fees, which are later distributed to rights holders. It should come as little surprise that the broadcasters disagree with Ivi’s reading of the law, and have pressured it with cease and desist letters, calling for the startup to take down the online video service. That prompted Ivi to file a preemptive lawsuit against certain broadcasters last week.
