AV Interconnects Refined:  MORE news…hot off the Tech Savvy Press!

Remember last month’s article on AV inter-connectability challenges? CAT(x type) wiring, now also an AV mainstay wiring methodology, transmits AV signals in both short and long run installations. Cable end conversions such as baluns or small out-board boxes functioned as the extender method, but introduced an installation dilemma.  What did you do with the power supply, wire and small black boxes sitting in multiple areas of your meeting room?  One day, our AV Tech, Jason, came in with a decora style faceplate-box.  The box had an HDMI port that pulled power from the HDMI source wire.  Converting to a CAT(x) RJ45 connector on the back side, it seamlessly connected to the CAT(x) cable.  This box would change how we handle inter-connectability upgrade issues!   Now, the cable transitions neatly within a wall port faceplate, eliminating the need for outboard boxes! As your needs change or new AV signal transmission types emerge, simply change the type of faceplate converter/extender at each end of the CAT(x) cable. Stick with Century AV.  We keep a laser-like focus on future proofing your AV technology.
