AVocation Systems, Inc. has produced a new informational video series focused on a range of audio video distribution topics.

For use in dealer trainings or simply as an educational resource, the videos focus on a variety of HDMI topics, HDBaseT, and new AV distribution solutions available. The following videos are now available for viewing on the AVocation Systems YouTube channel:

Intro to HDMI: Basics, Connections, E.D.I.D – Details the process of an HDMI connection including: Hot Plug, Extended Display Identification Data (E.D.I.D), and High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP)

Distributing Audio with HDMI – Audio distribution can create headaches for installers when they are trying to do more than just feed a display. This video looks at common challenges and explains how an HDMI Matrix can solve many of the distribution issues.

HDBaseT: Basics and Advantages – This video offers background information on the new connectivity technology with an explanation of 5Play Convergence and its value when used with cat-5/6e cables.

HDMI Sources with a Single Key – One of the most common problems with some AV sources involves the number of HDCP keys in an HDMI distribution environment; when a source only has a single key, it can only be routed to a single source. AVocation looks at how to eliminate this issue through the use of a matrix router. 

“Many installers face issues when distributing HDMI, but they don’t always understand the root causes,” said Trent Mulligan, sales and marketing manager at AVocation Systems. “We took some of our dealer’s most common AV distribution questions and turned them into informational videos to provide a general resource for anyone interested but also for use when educating clients, training employees or recommending the best AV distribution solutions.”

AVocation Systems also released several videos detailing the latest product information on their Mountain Series HDMI matrix products. The videos serve as multimedia spec sheets offering detailed product information, practical uses and enhancements over previous versions. The most recent products are highlighted in two separate videos highlighted below:

HDMI Matrix Switch Series, Part 1 (HX-0808H, HX-0808HA/8, and HX-0808HA/16)
HDMI Matrix Switch Series, Part 2 (HX-0808HAC/8 and HX-0808HAC/16)

To ensure maximum compatibility with source devices, AVocation Systems is an ISPCS Plugfest Participant with a commitment to interoperability.
