CEDIA surveyed its membership to get a better perspective on the issues and concerns members have relating to HDMI implementation and how it affects their business. According to the survey, 66% of participants stated that 90 to 100% of their installations include HDMI technology.
However, many respondents also reported issues.
Through this new relationship, CEDIA and HDMI, LLC will work together to provide educational opportunities for CEDIA members on the best practices of HDMI system design and implementation.
“The results of this survey point to the reason why CEDIA leadership is committed to working with HDMI Licensing and CEDIA members to improve these issues,” says CEDIA US chief executive Utz Baldwin.
“Both organisations see the value of building reciprocal training programs and technical references to help CEDIA members succeed in their HDMI installations. We are eager to work with the HDMI organisation and provide CEDIA members with a viable solution to help their businesses.”
A training program and delivering solutions that address interoperability issues are two main priorities of the relationship.
“We value the role CEDIA members play in delivering the ultimate end user experience in the home and are committed to partnering with CEDIA to create materials and tools that will facilitate the smooth adoption of HDMI technology,” says HDMI Licensing, LLC director of marketing and operations Charlene Wan.
