Do You See The Light?
It’s time to take a look at the latest news coming out of the residential side of the AV industry, and discuss it alongside our friends and experts in the field. Joining us this week is executive editor at Residential Tech Today Jeremy Glowacki and TruMedia Home Owner Amanda Wildman.
CEDIA and the consumer Technology Association has released a best practices document explaining the features being supported by HDMI 2.1. It is 70 pages of knowledge that would be vital for integrators and manufacturers alike to dig into. But how exactly can an integrator put these consideration and foreknowledge made by this piece into practice? Looking at what it takes to get the word out when it comes to white papers and documents for best practices within the AV industry.
DMF Lighting has launched their new website specifically in mind for integrators. This integrator-focused website is said to be the best starting point for those looking for how to use their lighting and fixtures. How important is it for manufacturers like DMF accessible for integrators who are looking to get into the lighting space in a more serious consideration?
Finally, we take a look at mini-split heat pumps and how they fit into smart home integration. Heating and cooling is only slightly outside the range for most integrators in residential, but recently these ductless heat pumps have become a worthy alternative to normal HVAC systems for their energy efficiency. What really comes into play for this space is the automation side of things. With that being said, what are the options for integrators when it comes to replacing HVAC systems with these new mini-splits? What this trend means for integrators working in the field, especially as things start to cool down all around the world.
