        CEDIA® Partners with Crestron to Offer 4K Ultra HD Training

        Jun 13, 2014


        Free online and in-person 4K Ultra HD training available now

        The Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) is collaborating with Crestron to lead global training initiatives on the 4K Ultra HD revolution. CEDIA and Crestron have partnered to make 4K Ultra HD implementation easier, more intuitive and more profitable for home technology professionals and third party manufacturers.

        Through a joint training initiative CEDIA and Crestron have developed a new course, Understanding Ultra HD/4K Technology, with an exclusive eCourse version only available through CEDIA Training. This course serves as an important benchmark as the residential technology industry moves to full adoption of 4K Ultra HD as the standard for display resolutions.

        “As the leading provider of education in the residential technology industry, CEDIA has helped its members set the standard for design excellence, technical knowledge and customer service,” said Don Gilpin, CEDIA Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer. “Partnering with Crestron allows us to advance our members’ knowledge in the field of 4K Ultra HD and provide the training they need to successfully implement 4K Ultra HD in their customers’ homes, creating an additional avenue for increased profitability.”

        “Our clients demand the best. There’s no question that the quality and beauty of 4K Ultra HD is just that, the best resolution available.” said Randy Klein, Crestron President and CEO. “As pioneers in developing digital media products that lead the 4K revolution, Crestron has the experience and resources to help drive adoption of the format in homes across the world. We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with CEDIA to bring 4K Ultra HD training resources to our industry.”

        In addition to having the right products, a successful 4K Ultra HD integration requires designers and engineers to understand the intricacies of installing 4K products. The newly developed course, Understanding Ultra HD/4K Technology, covers the differences in 4K Ultra HD technology as compared to its 1080P predecessors and what it takes to successfully distribute such signals. Participants will gain a better understanding of 4K Ultra HD, including the improvements it offers in image resolution, the math in calculating the higher rate video signals, and the transport mechanisms through HDMI.

        Home technology professionals have the option of taking an eLearning version of the course or an instructor-led version. Both options are offered to CEDIA members and non-members at no cost.

        July 22 – Manhattan
        July 24 – New Jersey
